Question about Directed OHD900 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

No power to DVD portable unit

Lights work, LCD works but DVD won't start - seems there is no power to the DVD unit. DVD unit by itself works fine. Can someone help? I have a service plan with BestBuy but turns out they are no good unless they still carry that unit - and they don't - so I am left to try to fix on my own - hopefully with the help of someone in the forum.

Re: No power to DVD portable unit

If you purchased an extended service plan from Best Buy, then it's not voided just because they don't carry the product any more. Mobile electronics change yearly; almost nothing that was sold two years ago is still available. If your local store won't help you, contact the corporate offices at 1-888-Best Buy. They may not be able to replace the unit with the same model, but they are legally responsible for either repairing it or replacing it with something comparable.

Sounds to me like you have a bad LCD. The DVD player itself will not play a disc if it is dirty, and it is digital data, so if there is something on the laser, it wont play or it will skip. Color generation comes from the components that control the LCD. It sounds to me like these were damaged or dropped and the cables that goto the LCD are either loose or the LCD itself is damaged.

Flip up screen won,t illuminate. dark

if the screen needs to be wired to the dash light switch it will not change unless the lights are on, if the wire is disconnected it is possible to bypass it making the screen stay bright.
although it would seem more likely that the brightness could be adjusted on the unit settings or by a button on the unit itself

Dvd screens in headrests are not getting power

The problem seems to be that the video out from the kenwood head unit is either faulty or the leads from the head unit to the monitors are faulty. Have you checked to see that the head unit when playing a DVD is set on ZONE 2 so that it transfers the video signal to the headrest monitors?

Lost signal to DVD player

There is a 12" black ribbon cable that feeds from the mounting unit to the lcd. You can see it when you have the lcd fully open right in the center where the hing is. I am curently working on this problem myself. this is the second time I have had to take it out off the ceiling and disassemble the whole DVD. It seems to pinch it in half. Ive owned this for 5 years. Good Luck....

My Head Unit stop working/shut down unintentionally

Mine is doing exactly the same thing! I suspect its a protection mode- the unit is overheating. I'm not sure what to do, there is no mention in the manual.
