I had this same problem and held down the play button after unplugging the player. What i found was that i could boot up, but that shortly after the screen would scramble and alternate between static images and a green screen that flickers. I believe the single chip that drives this has failed.

try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.

You need to set up the out put of your DVD player. First hook up a non hdmi output to the tv, either component or coax. You don't need to hook up the audio. You should get a picture from this connection. Then you can go into the menu and set your hdmi output to match your tv, probably 1080i. You may have to turn your volume up higher when using the hdmi cable than not. I hooked my audio up directly to a surround sound and don't use the tv's speakers.

hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

Make sure that hdmi output is activated in box setup. If there is no settings, turn off box, connect different cable and turn on tv and box. If still no go then possibly you have damaged hdmi output in the box

Use code search on your URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.

if the display shows a progress bar when lowering and increasing the volume, that's a system built feature. you will not be able to remove that feature.

You can't do anything without a remote. How can you not have a remote for it! Just buy a facsimile remote, the same as the old one.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.
