No. Battery is not the problem, appeared to some charging circuit board issues. Got two Sony DVD player one (DVP-FX820) and the other (DVP-FX811) exclusively for Sam's Club. I keep switching batteries to charge on the FX811 (good one), haven't found a solution yet.

A couple of things could be the problem.
A special circuit detects when the battery needs charging, it is suppose to charge the battery, that could be bad.Sometimes, a special circuit charges the battery WHILE playing the movie.
The battery could be 'dead' not charging and the same circuit tells it to bypass charging and go directly to turning on the set.
If you got it from a person that has the knowledge, they could have bypass the charging circuit and wired it to just turn on.
You did not say that you got it new and in 'charging ' working order.
Usually the batteries have to be replaced after a number of charging. [you did not say how long you had the machine.
If you know how to do it, replace the batteries. If not get someone to do the job.The cost of batteries and labor.

Sony Bravia flat screen TV when turned on has black screen. Green light on the bottom is lite up, electric plug is plugged into house socket, no picture only black screen.


If audio is OK, the fault is with its backlight section. If audio too is absent, the fault is with its digital main board. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Black screen, green light on the bottom is on, electric plug is on house plug, no picture, was working fine last night, now only black screen!


Do a hard reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, check and replace its main digital board. It will be faulty.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.

Portable DVD PLAYER: I don't get any audio. I'm batteried-up, plugged in, volume high, remote working, picture good -- just no audio. Any suggestions:


Maybe it has a failure in the audio amplifier, if there's no sound even with headphones or the internal speakers, if there's audio only with headphones.
