Question about Insignia IS-PDVD10 Portable DVD Player
My portable dvd player was playing fine and then suddenly there was sound but no picture. Occasionally the picture will flash on the screen. I have pushed the menu button and other buttons, but still only get a flash on the screen.
You unit has failed to overheating problems causing the unit to expand and break the internal connection of the video processor to the main board. If under warranty send unit in for replacement.If not you must try to shrink the circuit board back to the normal position. This is a last resort fix. You should have someone experienced to open the unit and see if they can find the bad component or area that needs reconnecting. If they have the right equipment they may be able to reheat the board and straighten it while heating the board with a heat gun. you must protect all plastic parts by covering them with tin foil.You must heat the board in the specific area of the video processor or the the other failing connections. These boards have layers and the solder connections may be hidden from sight in the inner layers. After heating for a few minutes, stop heating and let the unit cool down for a few hours in a straight position. This may or may not work depending on the damage done already. This technique is from repairing intermittent computer boards and video card that have had overheating problems or have been rough handled in shipping and handling. Again i say it does not always work and is a last resort before replacing the unit.You should go on the internet and research this problem before attempting it yourself. There is on video on you tube on this very technique and it worked on laptop computer boards that had intermittent video outputs. Hope this helps you with your problem.
