Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD

Very Good Daniel,
if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
I've done a few times.
Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

Vcr/dvd player will not let me watch cable through it

There should be video in and video out on the dvd player. You shouldhave the wires going from video out on the cable box to video in on the vcr. Then you should have video out on the vcr going into the tv

Portable dvd wont play movies

I was getting the blue screen and open, then a black screen after loading the disk. If you have the AV switch in the wrong position, it will do the same thing. My kids must have moved it on me.

DVD Tray won't open

The quickest way I've found is to just remove the upper casing, unscrew the disk holder and take the disk out that way. The disk holder will look like the silver part in this picture although your could be black or other color.

Screen doesn't display when car is running

I have noticed with other devices in the car plugged up to a cigarette lighter, it will work while the car is running and once it is turned off, but once the car is started again, I lose power. Evidentally this is an issue with car electrical systems either resetting or surging so it isn't anything wrong with your dvd player. It would be best if you could unplug the player and let it run on battery just before the car is started and then plug it back it once the car is running. I hope this helps.
