Yeah, you were correct. Motor had packed up. Sent to shop. Got a replacement motor. Cost almost as much as a new player though. Thank you all the same for the pointerand sorry for the late reply.
Neither the button on the player nor the one on the remote work? Does it make a sound at all? Does the disc play at all? The disc might be wedged - perhaps a few good whacks will loosen it.
There is a slight possibility it could be a driver error, but most likely, its a mechanical failure in the DVD drive. Yank it out and replace it, its cheaper than trying to repair. If you have a disk stuck in the tray, look closely at the face of the drive. You should see a small hole about the diameter of a paper clip just under the disk tray. Straighten the paper clip and push it in the hole. When you feel some resistance keep pushing and it should open the tray.
