panasonic es40v issues ???

    I've had the ES40V for some time, no problems till now.
    Last night I was watching a rented dvd, the display information was on the top of the screen and wouldn't go off- I figured it had froze so I attempted to turn off the unit and it was completely froze up. I've had this problem before and was fixed with unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes and pluggin it back in. That didn't work this time.
    Now my unit has major issues-
    when you turn the unit off- NO clock- no lighting on the front of the unit where the clock is-just completely black
    when the unit is turned on and dvd is inserted it gives me a err message
    when you insert a vhs tape it will play, and there is sound- but the tv picture is the blue screen my tv gets when their is no signal. It's like the video part of the unit isn't plugged into the tv.
    I have unplugged every cord and waited - plugged everything back in and still no help
    any suggestions???

    ooops forgot to mention i had left the unit unplugged overnight and when I plugged it back in this morning the clock blinked (like it does when the power has gone out and needs to be reset) - it blinked for about 30 seconds and then blackness again.
    Powered the unit on and still the same problems.
    and I have tried using the dvd cleaner disc to see if I at least get the unit to recongnize the discs, it went thru the cleaning process ( I could hear it, no picture as the tapes had done) and it still doesnt' recognize discs
