In Car DVD Player 7

Comment by n300zx, posted on Nov 05, 2008Unithas been removed from the car for several days, checked for visual signs of damaged components, and replaced in vehicle. No sign of screen coming to life when plugged into wiring and switched on, however Automatic Radio Antenna extends when Power button is activated.
Any more ideas?

    Further trial and error testing reveals that the Radio,DVD,CD,and possibly GPS touch screen buttons and sound are all functioning, but not visible on black screen. This would seem to indicate that there is some malfunction of the video output.
    Ideas please.

Well the radio is really functioning based on what you are saying. there was a comment post by world vet in the premiums that you opened up. i saw and he has a point. the display could have been damaged by voltage surge. but you did not jumped start it right?.. it could happen during jump starting or starting with a big electric charger. if there would, be non sense response from some of the experts here, might as well have it repair or if the repair is so much as to buy a new one, then i suggest this is a lesson learned to turne off all electronics before jumps starting or pushing the car to start.

tnx 4 using fixya,


just don't accept any solution unless you are satisfied with it. you will only see one solution at a time.

    that could be true. but the video cables are not external right? is internal with the radio. so it seems. either that connection had the problem (the internal connection of video) or the display itself was fried due to the voltage fluctuation that happen when it was started by pushing it. could have been rev too high once it started. that would be our instinct.

    tnx again,

    hi n300,

    i know i was not able to fix your problem but ratings are much important to us as answering your questions, now a TFT would give me a minus 0.4 and a Helpful would just be a minus 0.1.

    can i ask for a favor and the rating would just be a Helpful rather than a TFT, just for ratings sake.

    tnx in advance,

    tnx n300 for a helpful rating.

My SSL DD888 double din 7" car stereo/dvd player won't turn on. The fuses and wiring have all been checked and are fine. What could be wrong/is it fixable?

If it had been working fine before, it means either the powerconnection to the player is not available anymore (loose powerplugs) or there might be internal damage to the player. This can occur when the polarity of the car-battery got reversed accidentally while repairing the car. Another thing might be the internal battery of the player is dead. This battery is used to store date / time and other data.

So, first check the Voltage of the car-battery. Second, check the power-connections at the back of the player. If you still can't locate the problem, you should check if your player is still under warranty.
If not, and as a last thing, well, if you got some electronics knowledge and tools, open up the interior of the player and look for suspicious looking components, like broken fuses, blown capacitors, black spots at the PCB (*) etc.

(*) PCB is the green board inside the player, where all tiny electronic components are mounted.

Plastic arm of water dispenser broken off - need help trying to remove plate to access screws for replacement

Try looking under bottom edge of control pad that says monogram on it. You should see 2 or 3 holes. Push in with a blunt object in either end hole while pulling panel forward. Then dot the center if has one, then the end one. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE POWER OFF!! Now you can see 4 screws to access rest of dispenser.
