Question about Liquid Video MVBG619 Portable DVD Player
While I don't own the "MVBG619" *specifically* (the "LIDM-830" to be exact), it shouldn't matter across units.
I just purchased a used 8" LV portable DVD player with the intent of connecting external devices (VCR, etc) to it.
There are three 3.5mm "Composite", "Audio" and "S-Video" jacks on the unit and an "In/Out" selector switch to set the direction of the plugs.
The unit came with a "Y/R/W RCA Component to 3.5mm" cable. I plugged it in, switched the direction to "In(put)", but all I get is a dark, unviewable image (like I'm on the wrong channel) and no sound. (Yes, I did try switching the VCR's switch from Channel 3 to Channel 4. No diff).
I've used the Component video from the VCR to a TV with Component jacks and it works fine.
Has anyone else been able to display video from an external device on the player? I'd also like to connect other things to it. Thx.
First, the R/Y/W connections are "composite" not "component" video. Component connections are green/blue/red and are a superior connection basically on the same level of quality as HDMI. If you have your TV and VCR connected this way, it will not be compatible with the RCA Y/R/W. I think you are confused as to what component and composite connections are. And, why would you want to connect a DVD player to anything at all other than your TV or a DVD burner? I don't get it.
If you are using R/W/Y, that is basic and the least sophisticated connection available. Further, if you connected this unit to your TV, then you would want to set its connections on "out", not "in", then plug them into your TV.

SOURCE: Half the screen is dark
Sounds like half your backlight is not functioning. The only thing I suggest is to call the manufacturer thats listed in your user manual and see what they think it will cost to repair unless its still in warrantee. There are no user serviceable parts inside of this unit so i dont think it would be a good Idea for you to attemt to take it apart as it may be a system to dissasembly and you make tear or break on of the small flex cables. Good luck
