When I picked this set up it came on and played. When I tried to shut it off with the remote it would not respond. Used the Off button on the set. Now I can not get it to come on at the set or with the remote. The record light and the timer lites also the program timer lite stay on all the time thye set is plugged in. the front of the set. I need to know how to disconnect the timer circuit or repair it.
Thanks for any help.

Yes, this system does have a timer to shut off after so many minutes of inactivity, meaning that yes, your player is playing a movie, but there has not been any input actions made on the player being volume, or any buttons pushed on the remote. You can change the amount of time it takes to shut off, but starting up your player and going to the settings menu, and you can fine and adjust the time there!
The most common use of a red light on VCR is the timer record indicatation. With this on most VCR will shut down and allow no playback. Try looking for a timer button, or go into the record menu with the remote then clear any timer settings.
To disconnect a box timer so it does not run or control the circuit, then remove wires from terminals. If you simply want to override timer now and then, then remove trippers from timer dial. Then use manual override switch to set timer ON or OFF. If you remove wires from terminals, and want circuit to operate, then as a general rule, you connect black wires together and connect white wire together. However you did not specify which timer you have and timers and circuits vary, so it would be wise to test the wires.
Ours did the exact same thing.. I Decided the remote thing was worth a try. I turned the TV to DVD (without a DVD in the player) pressed the set up button (on remote) and Restored the Default option. (Highlighted Default; highlighted Restore then pressed OK) Then exited the set up. I did this twice just to make sure, LoL well.. it's been on over 4hrs now with no problem.. seems like this fixed it.. hope it helps!!
First try turning the TV on from the Power button the set itself (assuming it has one).
If not, unplug the TV from the wall, wait a half hour, then plug it back in. It should come back on.
Also check that none of the buttons on the remote are stuck down, and that the batteries in the remote are OK. The toy might've stuck a repeating button down (like volume) which may have then drained the remote's batteries.
The timer light blinks when the AC power has been disconnected and the clock is not set. This is how the set warns you that it can no longer do timer recordings. Setting the clock and doing an autoprogram will fix it, but both the remote and the remote receiver must be working. If the original remote is not damaged and has good batteries in it but does not work on that set and you cannot get any other universal remote to work, then the remote receiver (the IR "eye") inside the set has failed and needs to be replaced. I have seen many of those little receivers failing recently. If you do not have experience changing electronic parts on small PC boards then have a qualified tech change it for you.
