Question about Lasonic DVD-8090 Portable DVD Player without Screen

Open Question

I have an older Lasonic DVD player. When I put in DVD the TV screen scolls and picture is in Black and White. Is it time to get a new DVD player or can this be fixed? I have looked for a scrolling/tracking control but can't seem to find it. Manual for this unit is long gone. Would appreciate some help

DVD player is black and white and screen is split

Make sure the player is compatible with your TV broadcast standards. A Pal player will show b&w pictures when connected to a NTSC tv and vice versa

Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.

  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    DVD Player is not tracking the picture

    DVD players are dirt cheap now. Just buy a new one, and if your TV has HDMI, get one that will hook up that way.

    Scrolling picture problem

    Mine was doing the same thing. I just did what someone wrote to try: Open the disc door, press in the numbers 00001, press clear, leaving the door open - turn off the DVD then turn it back on again. This actually fixed mine. Hope it does the same for you!

    check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
