There are probably only two reasons for this that I've seen. One is the button is stuck or the button circuit board is faulty. You can removed the bezel from around the screen and operate the control button at the board itself to see if the exterior button was sticking. If this doesn't work, the other cause will probably be in the video ciruit located within the main board and is unrepairable but replaceable.

Screen will not stay bright


That's the battery saver feature of that Philips portable. If you use an A/C power adapter, the light will stay bright.

Hope this helps!

Can't see "Setup" screen, or any other screens on t.v. monitor


There should be a tv vcr button on the remote control. What you done was you accidently shut off the VCR function. If you hit that button again the tv vcr button it will come back on.

Brightness bar is always on the screen.


What you have described is the brightness control being actived all the time. Did you spill any liquid in to it? You may try cleaning it with alcohol and a cotton swab on the inside too! Be carefull it you open it up.

Audiovox D1812 disc loads & plays but VERY dim screen


Sounds like the backlight isn't working, could be the flourescent tube or the inverter that powers it. At least those are the likely suspects in other LCD monitors that have similar problems.

Wrong disc message displayed on screen for dvd-2026


I found these posts. I have only been able to get the fix to work once, though. :(
I found a "hack' to make mine work :)
1. Open the tray
2. Press "Setup": Menu Screen should appear
3. Press "8-8-8-8" ( if you changed the password, you might have to change it back to 8888 ) The region number should appear on upper right corner. No other notation. Typically just the numeral "1".
4. Use the right (->) or left (<-) arrow keys to change the region to 255 for all regions.
5. Use the up or down button to go to 3001 and 4000. I had to change 4000 to 4001 to get mine to work,
6. Press "Setup" to exit.
It was a big relief to find this hack, because I misplaced my receipt and thought I was simply out of $30.
Region code hack posted by jeff777, December 15 2004:
This works.

1) With remote control, power the DVD player on.
2) With remote control, open the DVD tray.
3) With remote control, select SETUP.
4) With remote control, press the VOLUME UP button, then the VOLUME DOWN button, then the VOLUME UP button again and finally the VOLUME DOWN button again.
5) You should now see a number 2 on your screen. If you do not, this hack will not work on your system or you have done something wrong. If you do see the number 2 on the screen, proceed to 6).
6) Use the LEFT and/or RIGHT arrow to select the number 255.
7) When you see the number 255, press the SELECT button.
8) Press the SETUP button again to end procedure.

Newer Sungale 2026 players are a bit easier to set up:

1. Open the tray

2. Press "Setup": Menu Screen should appear

3. Press "8-8-8-8" Region number should appear on upper right corner. No other notation. Typically just the numeral "1".

4. Use the right (->) or left (<-) arrow keys to change the region. "255" all region.

5. Press "Setup" to exit.

Tested Region 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 PAL and NTSC disks. They all work just fine on an older US NTSC TV. It's a little bigger than the Cyberhome, but works much better. There is no jerking at chapters with either factory or homemade discs. Plays VCDs just fine.

Sniff around the internet. This machine is availabe as of 5-18-05 for about $29 plus shipping ($11). Arrived in two days.

Other hack posted by Hurricane, January 23 2006:
If you do the Setup>8888 thing you get a region code 1-6 & 255.
Well if you press up and down on the directional pad you also get 3001 and 4001 these can be changed to 3000 and 4000, I know that one of them is a Macrovision on/off flag but I don't know what the other is.
