Hi Patrick,

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Do you have any lights at all on the front that are lit. These dvd players do have a common fault that is caused by a faulty capacitor on the power supply board.

Would you be looking to repair the unit yourself?

no lights on at all and would look at getting someone with electrical experience to repair if it was worth it.

If it has no lights I suspect the capacitor may be to blame. I would need to be dismantled to check if that is the fault, It would be worth repairing if it is just the capacitor it should be <£50
