SOURCE: Re: 8" Portable DVD Player

HI, the problem you are having is a very common problem with all portable dvd players and also all flip and slide phones and laptops and netbooks.

basically anything that has a screen that flips or slides open will get this problem, now whats causing you the problem is each time you open and close the screen this causes the data ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board to bend, its made to do this so it always keeps a connection with the screen at all times, but what happens is that over time and use the single strand copper wires running inside this ribbon become brittle and then this either breaks or causes a weak connection like you are getting with yours, now if this was a mobile phone it would be an easy fix as its a common fault so most phone shops stock this part and will fit it for next to nothing, but as yours is a portable dvd player then this makes it a bit more difficult as these are made to be thrown away when they go wrong, which is a waste as most can be repaired, the problem is getting the spare parts is near impossible unless you can get a damaged player to get the parts from or if by some chance your local tv repair shop may have a part that matches up with the ribbon on yours.

these ribbons are cheap to buy but you may struggle to get one, the best thing to try is find your nearest tv repair shop and take it to them and ask them if they can get the ribbon for the screen or if they can match it up with another part.

their is no easy fix you do need to get this part replaced as it will only get worse the more you open and close the screen, try tv repair shop as this is your best option but failing that you will struggle to get the part unless you can buy a damaged player off the well known auction site and hope that the part you need is ok.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a portable rcr dvd player. When turned on the green light comes on but nothing else any ideas on what i could do with It?

It may be a lose connector from the main board to the lcd driver board or lcd driver board to lcd panel. Also to check and see if its just a bad back light take a bright light I.E. a flash light or your phones flash light mode if it has one, shine the light vary close to the lcd as to almost touch it and look for a picture. Best done by having a dvd in the player to make sure you can see if the lcd is working. If you can see something distinctively like a video than the back light is out. If there is no picture than it is most likely a lose connector or bad lcd. The odds of getting parts are low. If you find it is a bad back light there are a few mods you can do to put a new back light in. If you are not electronically knowledgeably it my be best to have a friend who has the skills to do so.

I turned on the dvd player and them the screen came on and then immediately the screen went black and I cannot get the dvd player back. It is fully charges and I also tried to play using the dvd player...

This can be a faulty backlight bulb in the screen but more likely the screen inverter has developed a fault, replacing the inverter would probaly cure it or check the connections to the inverter for a dry joint and possibly reflowing the solder may also do it.
If your not sure what the inverter is then I would throw the player away and get a new one.

Sony LCD TV has Dark Picture

Hi there,

the problem is not the lamp.

This model has a set of two backlight lamps, and it is practically impossible that both lamps go faulty at the same time.

When the backlight lap in an LCD TV goes off in this way, the faulty part is always the backlight inverter, that is the high voltage board powering the lamp.

In your case you have to get the TV inverter booard replaced.

Are those line on the desktop / screen itself or within a program to play a movie. If those lines apear on th screen itself than the probem can be related to backlightes (laps around your screen) or inverter ( a part of backlights system). More possible those lapms needs to be exchanged. Please give more details.

Display light is dark

I have seen this problem before this is caused by a failure of the backlight which provides illumination for the LCD screen. You may also want to check the inverter also since it fails often and interacts with the backlight.

Dim screen

This could either be an inverter issue, or a backlight issue. Lamp replacement varies from very easy, seconds, to impossible without returning the entire panel to a service depot. There are some other possibilities (cables, motherboard problems controlling the backlight) but they are RARE. Inverters are relatively cheap (they are not "cheap", but they are still 80% less than a new LCD panel and 75% less than replacement backlight IF you could get it replaced). A new inverter is likely to be in the $50-$75 range. Any difference when working with batteries as opposed to AC? If so then it could be related to a power saving setting. But if your screen is completely dark, only visible with a light flashed at the screen, then that's not it. Good luck post a comment for the result
