Hello atahirkhelii,

This is an indication that your back-light or inverter has malfunctioned. This problem is tricky, because if the back-light is a separate unit you will be able to repair this problem by replacing the back-light or one of its associative components, however if the back-light is part of the screen so as to make it one unit, then the repair job becomes cost prohibitive.

The troubleshooting process is as follows:

1) take the cover off of the screen panel and expose the back of the screen and the circuitry of the main board.

2) with a multimeter measure the test point voltages as compared to the schematic and note any abnormalities.

3) using the schematic as a guide determine if the back-light can be turned on manually (this is just a test to see if the back-light or its circuitry is the problem)

4) if the back-light circuitry is faulty replace the malfunctioning components,if the back-light is faulty replace the back-light (if possible, because the back-light may be part of the screen)

5) If you can replace the back-light order it from the manufacture to insure compatibility.

6) if you can not replace the back-light because it is part of the screen, contact the manufacture and ask them the cost of a new screen/back-light combination.

7) replace the components, close the unit back up and then do a 48hour burn it test on the player.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

There is a small switch on the right side where all the audio/video ports are. If that switch is forward in the "video-out" mode, the onboard (TFT) screen is shut off. Move the switch back to "TFT" mode. Hope this helps.

No picture on screen


Hi,

Initially, this would either be a defective LCD panel or its interface. A way to verify is to play the portable DVD using an external video monitor such as your TV. If still gray or blue screen (no video) even in the TV/monitor, then it would be the video interface/circuitry. If the video is displayed, then it would just be the LCD panel display.

If it turns out to be the LCD display, it is very possible that it is a backlighting issue. Most likely, it would be in the inverter and/or CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamps. This is a relatively easy repair by re-soldering. It is perhaps more of a task to open the panel lid/cover of the LCD display.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have the LS91 model and it tells you in the instructions what you need to do to get the extra time. Essentially you need to reduce the brightness to -5. This dulls the picture but if you are in a low lit room then it's no problem. To do this for this model you hit monitor mode twice and then reduce the brightness.

If you shine a torch into the screen and see the picture then the backlight has gone and needs replacing, although it would probably be cheaper to buy a new dvd player.
