I was on a trip and when we dropped down the screen to head home there was no picture (all black) when we looked at the DVD player itself the lights are on but it also will not accept a dvd to play, what could be the problem? This unit is barely 6 months old if that.

Re: Screen is blank?
The unit should be under warranty and should you disturb the case in any way, the warranty will be voided. Make an effort to somehow get it back to the manufacturer for service. Do it ASAP to avoid permanent damage whereby you will be responsible for the cost of repairs.

Dec 8, 2015 - There is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCDwhen attempting to ... Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD. IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD.
Press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously for at least 10 seconds. The screen will clear out and then the Apple Logo will appear on the black background. When the logo appears it means that the reset is done.
I had this same problem. Once I got over about 1200 pictures, the
screen just turned black, and the only setting that would work where I
could see the lcd screen was the easy setting. I had read somewhere
that this was due to the amount of pictures the camera had "counted",
even if those pictures had been downloaded and erased from the camera.
So I decided to reset the camera. Go to the tools list in the menu,
scroll down to "reset all", and when it prompts if you want to "reset
settings to default" click ok. This worked for me, and all of my
settings - sunset, landscape, etc. - now work. Keep in mind that if you have configured any parameters in any of the settings
(shutter speed, lighting, etc.) those will have to be reset.
the video heads are probably dirty.there is a steel drum 1/2 inch thick that you can see if you look thru the front lid where the tape loads.the video heads are little black spec looking things on the bottom of the drum.the easiest way to clean the drum for a novice is to put isopropyl alcohol on a piece of 2 inch square paper.hold the paper very lightly against the drum with your right index finger.turn the drum from the top,anti clockwise.you will see some black stuff on the paper.do the same with a piece of dry paper.otherwise the tape will stick to the drum if still wet.DO NOT use a q tip,as it will get caught in the heads and break them.
sometimes,just running a new blank tape for 15minutes will dislodge the particles and the picture will re appear.if you have recently rented a movie,and saw lines running across the screen,and noise from inside the machine,it is damaged tape going across the heads and drum and it can wipe out the picture just like that.run a blank tape first and then clean the drum if you have to.
Not sure I understand the half of the tv and half of the dvd player. Are you saying about mid way of your set is cut off and like the bottom half you have a picture and the top no picture? I can explain the dot, first you can open back of set and maybe take off hole back bezel. Get where you can put your head down in front of C R T's (tubes) and look down in them and see if you see the same thing in one or all three of the tubes. If so this explain the dot. The half problem sounds like vertical is missing. Not sure yet! Need feed back
