Hi I just went through the same plight with the Shinco SDP-1750A I won from a local online auction. Sounds fine but no display what so ever. when I went to try and charge the connected battery to a standard 12v auto battery charger I noticed the display would spike with a quick flash as I connect the power. This is of course led me to believe the display wasn't a total goner. Charged it all the way and still zipola.

Seeing that I wasn't real excited about a DVD player that was nothing more than something like an old time radio show I decided to disect the monitor. VERY carefully and gingerly I removed all those tiny knat like screws around the screen frame (put them in a cup or such container so you don't lose what you can barely see). When I removed the dispay I carefully scrutinized all connections nothing looked out of the ordinary or visably at fault.

I then noticed that the main video ribbon interface type connector (wide see thru orange coloured flat cable which connects to bottom center of display was a bit crooked looking. I then unplugged and inspected it then plugged it back in and BINGO the picture was back bright and clear. I then made sure it was held on securely with some electrical tape and now it works a treat.

Hope this helps however this is only one of many things I suppose that can cause lack of display.

ALL The Best

I was in the states on holidays and bought on 8" personnel dvd player and retuned to Ireland and I am unable to play any DVDs as a error is on the screen INVALID REGION there is nothing saying that if...

There are 7 different regions 0 is region free and 1-6 are country codes. Your region 2 and america is region 1 so this is why the player isn't working with your discs. Usually you can hack/overide the region setting on some DVD players. Sometimes this can be done with the remote but sometimes the player has to be modded. This link will take you to a hack page for audiovox players. If theres a hack for your player then it'll be there.

Screen got really hot and now it won't play DVD's

I was going to see if you DVD player has a reset button on it but it isn't popping up on Audiovox website.

If you open up the player see if there is a reset button on it. Hold it down for about 5 seconds and see if that works.

Unplug power from the unit and remove the battery as well. Put them back in.

Try a different DVD in case its warped or damaged.

If those don't resolve the issue you should take it in and have someone look at it.

Screen is completely black

There is a switch on the right side of the unit labelled Video Out (switch facing front of unit) or TFT On (switch facing rear of unit). First make sure that the switch is on TFT on. If it is then switch to Video out and then back to TFT On. This made our screen starting displaying again when it was black.
