- Samsung DVD-V530 turns on then off

Samsung vcr/dvd player model DVD-V530.
When Standby/on button is pressed, the display briefly show "ON" then
The display seems to flicker a little during this time.
I had hoped to find a faulty capacitor in the power supply unit, but
was not able to.
Has anyone seen and repaired this problem before?
Thanks in advance,

It is possible that the VCR mechanism is jammed, many VCR units will do
this kind of thing when the mechanism is in an unknown state and the
motor can't drive it to a known state. Can you hear any motor running,
or trying to run, sounds when it tries to turn on?
I dislike the VCR/DVD combo units because VCRs are very mechanically
complex and frequently have mechanical failures and it kills both units
