Question about Durabrand PDV-705 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Same as other poster: Player only plays black and white

I've had this Durabrand PDV-705 for about a year. It worked fine until about a month ago. Now it works fine except the built in screen only displays black and white. I know the color electronics works because if I hook it up to an external TV the color is fine. Any ideas? or is the internal display fried?

It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.

Screen B&W only: Same as other poster


Screen works you get a black and white image. The colour stage works you get colour output to TV So my guess is the ribbon connector from motherboard to screen is loose or adrift. Is this something you fell you can fix or 'know a man that can?'
