PVS1965 Monitors wont come on

The monitors will not come on. Neither of them. I would think it was the cable but neither of them work and the odds that two cables went bad isn't too good. Didn't know if somebody knew if the monitors go out easy or if it maybe the out on the player. Don't know which end to start on and its hard to test either way. I have an idea on where to start but would be nice to know if somebody else has tackled this problem already

Re: PVS1965 Monitors wont come on

I had the same problem with my player, I took it apart and began troubleshooting. What I discovered was a blown 3.5 amp 125V fuse.

The fuse cost about $3.00 and if you can solder this is a very easy fix. Just pay special attention to the ribbon cables when you are reassemling the unit, their is a white ribbon cable that is not attached well and will just slip right out, when I was putting it back together I secured the cable to the cable end with a small drop of super glue. Be sure that the cable is attached correctly before glueing it, (exposed metal strips on the end of the cable are facing the right way). towards the pins on the board it attaches to.

I was also able to fix my neighbors venturer DVD player with the same exact problem. Internally it is almost the same player, it just costs about a hundred dollars less.

These are made by a company called Alco Elecronics Inc. You can find their web site and submit your problem and they will direct you on how to send them in for repair/replacement or call them at 1-800-252-6123. I sent mine in three times. The first time they rejected disks. I sent them in with 25.00 and they replaced the player with a repaired one. Then it started skipping bad and they athorized me to send it free of charge.And again replaced it with a repaired one. Now a year latter the screens won't power up. And I'm getting ready to contact them again.The trash can is where their going next time!!!!!

I had the same problem. I am an electronics technician. I have had my unit for 2 years and I fixed it by throwing it in the trash. Fixed it real good!

My dvd player works but i am not getting anything on the monitors

Well the actually the player isnt working.

If you get no video output, and the wires are hooked up correctly, then the video output circuits are bad and the unit will need replaced.

How do I put it together?

Plug the fat cables into the monitors on the bottom, and then to the player in the D shaped holes. Plug the 12V (car) adapter into your car's power outlet and then to the player in the small hole that may be marked AC/DC in. There's only one hole that will work - can't mess it up.

You can order replacement parts from the following web site. We had accidentally cut one of our player to screen cables and I ordered two through this site. Had them within 2 weeks, no problems.

Kawasaki dvd screen damaged

Visit the official customer service website for this product,, or call them at 1-877-252-6873. They should be able to sell you one. Target also sells an item that should work. It's called the Kawasaki AVM678 or Audiovox AVM6781, and designed to work specifically with the PVS1965 or PVS1965S. I believe it's $79.99, but only available in their stores, in the portable DVD section of the electronics department.
