Probably one of two conditions is causing your toilet problems -    


A) A clogged toilet.  Since plunging hasn't addressed the issue you need to use a closet auger.  Most home improvement centers sell them and YouTube has instruction videos on their usage.  


B) You have a blocked toilet vent pipe.  This is a vertical vent line that permits air to enter the sewer line.  If this is blocked the act of flushing the toilet causes a vacuum that can contribute to clogging the toilet.


If you aren't comfortable proceeding, then you probably will need to call a plumbing service.  Best of luck.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.
