In Oct. 2003 I bought a Panasonic DVD-S35 machine. It was working fine 'til last night when the first episode of a 2 episode DVD ended. As soon as the1st episode ended, the machine suddenly turned itself off. When I turned on the machine, it was on for ~ 2 seconds and then shut itself off. Same pattern over and over even when I was able to get the DVD out and try another DVD--> same problem: machine just turns itself off.
Has anyone else has this same problem? If I open the case up and look around, is there anything not-so-complicated that I should inspect or test? I read a brief webpage report about some problem similar to this one and a guy said he fixed the same unit as mine by pushing on or fooling with the white spindle. Does the problem of my machine seem to be serious or something simply fixed by pushing on a spindle? If something else is indicated by the symptom, what's wrong?
