    I have a GPX DVD that worked fine until I attempted to connect it to my new LG 55 inch TV. Trying to utilize the S-Video method and there seems to be no way to get this thing properly tuned. Have a picture, (black & white), no sound. Having trouble interpreting setup. Help! Need detailed instructions.

I have the same problem, and I am really disappointed in the product. I am a mommy, who knows absolutely nothing about electronics. I hope this solution works, needless to say though I will be waiting for my husband to disassemble it- before I make the product even more screwed up! Thank you for your suggestion, and I will let you know if it works!

Get display : NO DISC or BAD DISC

Probably the laser lens needs cleaning.
Purchase a laser lens cleaner disc at Radio Shack ($13). No chemicals are involved.
Read & follow the instructions. It cannot harm the player if not done right.

I heve worked with so many DVD players including playstation2 a while back. Almost all the time this problem is caused by a bad laser diode assembly. You can order one for your particular model, but they are not easy to replace, even for an electronic guy like me. A mechanical talent is a must.

My gpx dvd player model d2816 keeps saying bad disc even with new disc

Either the lens is dirty or the optica are starting to fail. If you can gain acces to the optical assembly, try cleaning the lens carefully using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem and you are able to read CDs but not DVDs, the optics are failing and need to be replaced.

No color on dvd player

A cable could cause this problem. I would try using a standard RCA patch cable and go from the composite video output of the DVD player to a composite video input of the TV. See if that produces color. If not, the DVD may be at fault. On the other hand, if you get normal color, the S-video cable could be bad.

Hope this helps.
