    same here-- don't have any idea what's wrong-- The sound is great, when I turn it on there is a very quick flash of the blue Mintek screen but then it goes completely blank. The last time I used it was through and LCD- I have tried to change the "source" but that doesnt work either.

    I have the exact same problem. I hope there is an easy fis, because it appears that the screen is not completly out because the screen flashes MINTEK when you first turn it on perfectly.

    The DVD plays and the sound is good. The screen is black unless I push and release the little peg that pauses the play when the lid is closed. If I continue to bob it up and down the screen flicks on and off instantaneously. Do you think it is something with the closure switch and can it be replaced and where can I get the part?

    my player keeps turning off suddenly, like the power will be on, but no audio or sound is happening. I thought it might be overheating, but it keeps doing it.

I think it's because the screen on/off switch is broken. I took it apart, and think that I need to buy a new switch.

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black

There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

Video out problem

I own a DMR-ES20 and had that problem. Panasonic Customer Service gave me a fix that works.
On the unit itself, press STOP and PLAY at the same time for about 10 seconds. This fixed my player.

If it works fine with only the battery, then the lcd should be fine. Your power adapter might be bad.
