A very peculiar issue - Graphical Artifacts and Auto Shutdowns when attempting to read discs on Polaroid DVD player

This isn't my usual player, I bought this faulty to try to repair but I'm not too sure what could be causing this, I suspect it's the main chip on the board which is a Sunplus sphe8203R chip but basically it attempts to read discs but everytime it does it either shuts down, displays static or starts displaying artifacts on the screen before shutting down, it does the same when it's just sitting with no disc inserted. It is a polaroid model PLA20DP001A, cheap little thing but would be nice if I could at least attempt a repair on it.

I'm pretty new to this, I haven't gotten into that stuff yet but I'll get my multimeter out and give it a go
I also know having opened it its all on one board
