Question about Sony DVP-FX820 DVD Player
1. Cord has power to unit.
2. Won't turn on with remote or with button on unit.
3. Charge light comes on briefly if I remove and reinsert power supply. Power light does not come on.
4. Was playing yesterday and gave no indication of problem. Wouldn't turn on this morning.
5. Won't run with battery removed and power cable in.
6. Won't run on battery.
7. Seems to be an internal problem in player, not charger or battery.
Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.
Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.
Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.
My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.
The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.

Please try adjusting the backlight. If the issue persists, try resetting the player.
To reset the Portable DVD Player, remove the battery of the DVD Player, then reconnect it after 1 minute and check if it helps.
If the issue still persists, then the player requires service.
