Frozen up with please wait read out on unit

Hello MrBrokeit, Shotgunning works sometimes, but the effort spent is often not worth the time spent. Let me explain if your power supply is defective then shotgunning will produce results, however if the problem is elsewhere you will never know it. I would suggest troubleshooting the unit, to determine where the problem really is. For this task I would suggest that you get a schematic diagram of the unit, a multimeter, and an oscilloscope. use the schematic to find the various test points, use the multimeter to measure the voltages at the test points, and then use the oscilloscope to measure the signals at the test points. Troubleshooting in this fashion will produce better results than as with the shotgun method. I would suggest checking for ripple voltage in the DC path. This voltage is due to AC bleed over from poor regulation by malfunctioning filter capacitors. you will not see physical signs of the problem but a quick check of the capacitors will let you know if the is the problem. Also check to see if the DC voltage across the positive terminal of the capacitor is held at the level it should be at. Then check all points on the power supply and compare them to the schmatic. Thank you, Shuttle83

Dark tft monitor

Hello atahirkhelii,

This is an indication that your back-light or inverter has malfunctioned. This problem is tricky, because if the back-light is a separate unit you will be able to repair this problem by replacing the back-light or one of its associative components, however if the back-light is part of the screen so as to make it one unit, then the repair job becomes cost prohibitive.

The troubleshooting process is as follows:

1) take the cover off of the screen panel and expose the back of the screen and the circuitry of the main board.

2) with a multimeter measure the test point voltages as compared to the schematic and note any abnormalities.

3) using the schematic as a guide determine if the back-light can be turned on manually (this is just a test to see if the back-light or its circuitry is the problem)

4) if the back-light circuitry is faulty replace the malfunctioning components,if the back-light is faulty replace the back-light (if possible, because the back-light may be part of the screen)

5) If you can replace the back-light order it from the manufacture to insure compatibility.

6) if you can not replace the back-light because it is part of the screen, contact the manufacture and ask them the cost of a new screen/back-light combination.

7) replace the components, close the unit back up and then do a 48hour burn it test on the player.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Black box on top of screen during HDD playback mode

Problem solved! Thanks Panasonic Tech Support!!

In case anyone else has this problem, I'll tell you what I found out. This model DVD recorder does not have closed captioning functionality at all. So if this happens to yours, it is not the DVD recorder causing the problem. It is a setting on either your TV, cable box, or whatever else you have hooked up to it.

In my case, my daughter must have accidentally hit the "Text" option on our TV's caption menu. I changed that option back to its original setting, and the mysterious black box is gone.

My Brand new never used Curtis dvd 8017

Give it a about 24 hours. It might need to declimatize. Also, thry charging the battery pack first and/or try turning it on with the power adapter only (battery pack off the unit). If this does nothing, they to get or borrow a voltmeter to make sure the power adapter is giving out a votage. This will troubleshoot wether it is the unit or the adapter. Let us know how it went.

Dark Screen

sounds like a faulty Backlight.. If you just bought this take it back and get it replaced, Check if the Manufacturer's warranty is still valid. if this was bought second hand (out of warranty) I would take it back. as it is unlikely that the prev owner did not know of this issue.

Picture going dark then brighter

I had a similar problem on a different DVD player and found that if I plugged it into the TV the problem went away.
