Ok i will try to not have you find the model # XXXXX was hoping it was listed on the front, if you click on the link below does any of these look like your dvd player.
Ok do any lights flash at all are any error codes appearing on screen of dvd player?
Has this unit been giving you any issues in the past several weeks?
Ok unfortunatly it sounds like the power distributor within the dvd player may be going bad, the only way to verify this is to take it into a local repair shop where they can test the components within the unit, plus they will be able to successfully remove the dvd disc from within the unit without furthur damaging any components within the unit.
Sorry i could not be of furthur assistance with this,
Honestly with the DVD players being so reasonable in cost nowadays i agree it is more practicle to just replace the unit as the cost to repair would easily be approximatly the same as the cost to replace.
