Re: Lid Came Off and I cant get it Back on right

This is not a small job. The lis is one of the first chassis pieces that is put in place, then the drive, boards, buttons and so forth.

Make sure that both tabs on the back of the optical door are still there. I've seen a few where one of the tabs breaks off and the lid just flops around. The small metal plate needs to have it's screws that will mount it on one side, and the spring needs to be there as well.

If you have a screwdriver and are very brave, you can repair this yourself. Otherwise it's a repair for the Insignia repair team.

Durabrand PDV-705 portable dvd player plays beautifully but no sound... Any ideas?? went through manual and still no sound on speakers or with headphones

I fixed one with this problem today. The problem was in the switch that is depressed when you close the lid. That switch turns the the screen and the sound off when the lid is closed, and back on when you open it.

I has to remove the back cover, spray the switch with contact cleaner (and immediately press the switch in and out several times quickly to help the contact cleaner to work). This solved it. Put the cover back on and all is well.

It has no power

It is possible that the fuse inside the DVD player has blown, to check this you will have to unplug from the mains and take the lid off the dvd. There should be 6 screws holding the metal lid on 2 screws each side and 2 screws at the back. Once all the screws have been taken out you can gently take the lid off the DVD.
Check the pcb inside for the fuse, it is usually on the the main power board, pop the small fuse out of the fuse holder and take it to your local electronics or repair shop and they should stock those fuses.
When you have the new fuse put it in the fuse holder, put the lid back on and secure it with the screws and power on. hopefuuly this should solve the power issue.

I put an HD-DVD in my player but it keeps coming back out.

Temporarily you can hold the lid closed with your hand and press play and leave the lid after it loads the disc. But for permanent solutuion you will require to repair its lid switches,

Initial screen shows "OPEN" in the top right corner

I had this exact same problem with my Protron DVD player. It was driving me crazy. I was about to just trash it, cause I was so tired of dealing with it. Then I decided maybe I should open it up and see what the issue is. I am not sure what exactly I did that fixed it, so I will just tell you everything I did. It works great now!! It's as if I know what I'm doing... but I was just playing really.

Here's what I did:
I unplugged it, took off the battery pack, turned it over and unscrewed the four screws holding it all together (one of the screws is located under a sticker that warns about voiding the warranty). Then I turned it back over, lifted the screen back and pulled apart the top from the bottom. It did kinda sound like something might crack as I pulled it apart, but it didn't. I just moved slowly and eventually got the entire thing separated, even the plastic around the hinge area will pop off, leaving just a couple cables connecting the top to the bottom. Again... I am not sure what I did that fixed it. But I found the button that would be located under the right small hinge of the DVD door that tells it if the door is open or closed. I pushed it a few times, thinking at first that something might be missing or broken that should make it work. I blew it out (just because it was opened up and I thought it couldn't hurt). I did notice a small white plastic piece near the back that fell when I had pulled open the entire thing. I thought it had to do with dvd door, but then realized it was the control that told the player if the lid was up or down. It had a wide side and a skinny side, with a flat piece in between. The skinny side actually sticks through the top section I had just removed. It shouldn't have had anything to do with the other problem, and it could have been in place just fine before I opened it up. I did put it back through the hole, using a piece of tape to keep it there while I assembled the entire thing back together. And then I was excited. I fixed it. I'm not sure how, but at least I don't need to buy another one. I don't know if it was me blowing it out, replacing that plastic piece, or playing with the dvd door open button. I would think it is the latter. (when it all apart there are two little black buttons near the back. one is just right of center, and the other is another inch or so to the right of that. the first is the dvd door open button, the furthest right is the one that lines up with the white plastic piece and the hole for lid open or closed).

That is probably really confusing. Sorry. I just explained as best I could. Let me know if further explanation is needed.

Remote doesn't work

Slide the bottom part of the remote control down. Switch the bottom right button to DVD 1. There might be a white sticker that covers it so remove the sticker first. Then hold down the "Enter" button and the "1" button down at the same time for a few seconds. That should make the remote work again.

Portable dvd player Film's stop and go back to loading screen

Not sure it's a solution, per se, but I discovered that my Matsui was acting as if I was opening and closing it, so I guessed that it was the lid. Once I put a paperweight on the "Press to Open" part of the lid, the DVD played through. I'm looking how to fix the lid but that's a workaround for now. Best of Luck - M
