Portable dvd player now plays only black and white

Polaroid 10" Portable DVD Player PDV-1008N with original power source cable recently began playing only black and white. Picure sharp but no color. I read existing info on this site about same but am tech-ignorant and do not understand meaning of answer. Am wondering if problem is in the device itself or if replacing the powersource connection cord would fix it. Or what?

My PDV-088PT White Screen?

The video processor has failed, or the LCD panel display, either way the cost to repair cannot be justified.

Player freezes partway through movie

If this happens on all disk and you have cleaned with proper laser disc cleaner there are small caps that are almost naked to the eye that needs changing in power supply

No video - just a white screen

So I am guessing you have audio and no video, your monitor has went out. you can check and see if ribbon cable is slightly uplugged, but maybe just a bad monitor. These happen usually from a drop or hard hit to the unit.
