Horrible Static on both headphones and van speakers when playing
We have a D1020 unit and had no problems originally. The first problem started to occur when my girls would move from directly in front of the unit - their headphones would go dead. We went to just broadcasting the sound over the van's speaker system and this was okay for a while but now there is HORRIBLE static. The static remains even when I switch to a different channel. Could you suggest a solution - I would really appreciate it.

Re: Horrible Static on both headphones and van speakers...
The most probable cause it broken solder connections on the headphone/ext speaker jacks. If you know someone who can solder fine detail parts...have them try. I dont know what a TV shop would charge but it DOES need fixing

That means that if too much power is going to the speaker or extraneous signals are being picked up by the wiring, it can come through the speakers as static. Stopping static requires finding and eliminating that extra electricity from transmitting through your speakers.
If you're still hearing distortion, turn down the volume on your amplifier until the distortion goes away. If the volume is too low to be easily heard, the problem may be that your amplifier produces too much power for your speakers to handle or that your amp and speakers have different impedance ratings.
I think you will need to disable the Van speaker connection to the DVD system. Can you tell me what is the model of your DVD system. You can test your wired headphones on other devices to see if it works. Then you can check the menu options and see if there is settings about which speakers to use.
It is, most probably, behaving like that because some application is taking too much processing power, hence, consuming battery, which, by its turn, heats up. Besides, active data connections are known to drain the battery very fast. Anyway, Google for Dotfred's TaskMgr.exe, copy it to your device and run it You'll see which application is taking more power than others.
Just my 2 cents...
I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.
