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
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Static is interference between the source device and the WHAT? Headphones, Speakers, Amplifier, or TV?
I assume you are trying to send a signal wirelessly from your player or computer to an independent receiver of sorts?
Hi , this is a common problem with this type of dvd player it starts happening after it has been used for a while the problem is actually with the speakers they tend to start getting this problem after regular use. Their isnt an easy fix for this problem the only wat to solve this problem is to get the speakers replaced if you take it to repair shop they will do this for you. On your model if you have a setup menu you can enter the sound options and turn down the bass and treble a bit doing this might reduce the crackle but it wont be long term fix. sorry their is know easy fix for this. Do you get this sound whilst using head phones or just the internal speakers if you get the crackling noise through headphones also then the chances are the lense needs replacing if you have tried a good lense cleaner then replacing parts is the only way to solve the problem your having. Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
I call this a problem with a capcitor inside the unit has leaked or has bulged.. Witch is not provding the power it needs to function properly see www.badcaps.com just for a example what are bad capcitors.
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.
The PCB board for the CD controls has slid out of its bracket slightly into the pathway of the CD.
Open the DVD player, there are 3 screws on back corners and one on the bottom. Use a penny in the slots where the speakers go and gently separate the back from the front, but only very slightly. Be cautious now, because there are several wiring bundles between the front and the back. Reach into the gap, at the top where the CD control buttons are, find the PCB for the CD controls and gently push it back into place. Put the front and back together, power up and see if you've cleared the pathway.
Similar experience with a D1020. A very small component on a surface
mount PCB developed a cold solder joint and eventually came off
altogether. If you have a small low power soldering iron and
experience with very intricate soldering, you can attempt a repair. Do
not imagine that a repair shop can repair for a reasonable expense.
Have you recently used headphones in this device? I have a portable DVD player that had a similar problem. It thought that headphones were plugged in and that turned the sound in the external speakers off. If i plugged in headphones the sound worked in them. So I jiggled the headphone plug in while in the jack and removed it and the sound came back on.
These units have a remote which provides controls not on the player itself. Be sure to check that the mute is not on. The other obvious question (but it still needs to be asked) is have you checked the volume control setting. When you move the control do you hear static or anything over the speakers which could indicate a bad volume control. Have you checked audio with headphones? If you have sound with headphones then you may have a loose connection in the speaker wiring or the headphone jack may be malfunctioning.
