Question about GPX PD708B Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

GPX portable dvd player does not play on bigger tv with rca cable

The instruction manual says the dvd player should be able to be hooked up to a different tv with the AV output. But when I hook it up, the video does not work. I went to Radio Shack and they could not help me. They tried one of their rca cables, but it didn't work there either.

You have to buy the $15 video cable from GPX. I tried several differant cables including RCA to S Video as a last resort. They say theirs is propritary and I now believe it!!!

The pin on a regular 3.5mm av to rca is TOO SHORT. If you get the unit from GPX, you'll note it is a bit longer. I found this problem also affected Sony and other portable DVD players - the regular 3.5mm plug is TOO SHORT. I haven't found a source other than GPX for the av cable with the correct length plug. Weird but true.
