Sound like the disc is stopping inside the player this can happen when you push the tray into the player instead of using the eject/insert button. This can cause the tray to slip its guide plug on the rack and pinion tray release this will also cause tray blocked unknown disc errors, this will need to re-seated.

It is also caused by excess dust and finger grease inside of the player that can build up over a number of years I suggest that you first unplug and then remove the lid from the device give the plastic internals a clean with rubbing alcohol.

DONT TOUCH the record/play head or power up with the lid off.

Usually you cannot buy replacement powersupply boards for dvd players unless you buy a scrapper one off an auction site and use that , but before you go out spending any money, check the capacitors on the board which look like little blue cans, see if they have a buldge in the top and if they have then they will need changing. Check for any burnt components too.

Having the same problem. DVD player loads enough to identify it is a DVD or a CD, but won't actually start playing anything.

  1. Using the remote control, press the following button sequence in a timely fashion: 1 , 2, 3, 4 (This will release the "Retail Lock" mode)
  2. Enter the User Menu and locate Reset Factory Defaults for the subject model.
  3. Complete the Factory Defaults reset.
  4. Power on the TV.
You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television.

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
