Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I have this memorex dvd player it plays and sounds fine, I can see the picture but it is dark. Could it possibly be that the backlight is out? or something else?
It is unfortunate that the screen cracked and that your particular model can be found on the internet for nearly what it would cost you to get it serviced if you could get it serviced in a timely manner. For instance there is a Memorex MVDP1078 Player for $114.00 at Overstock.com. A tv repair shop would charge you almost that amount if they can even get the part. If you send it in to memorex you will also be disappointed at how long and how much their out of warranty work costs. Since it is your friend, I would suggest you replace it and tell them what happened. As long as everyone is happy the question of getting a brand new one or getting it fixed should not be a problem. Good luck and God bless.

yes it can be fixed.replace the capacitor c564 and c513 on the main circuit board to bring the picture back as this capacitors gets over heated and cause this problem.

If you still have use of the on screen menu functions, you can try using the restore to factory setting option in the preferences section of the set-up menu. Press the setup button on the remote control and use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the preferences section, press ok to enter the sub-menu.In the sub-menu use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the default option. Press ok. This will reset the dvd player to the factory settings. If you do not have the use of the on screen menu, you can use the a/v outputs to a external monitor or television to perform the abouve procedure to try to restore the dvd player to normal operation. If all this fails you can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477 They will be able to help you, either solve your problem or get the dvd player serviced.I hope this information helps you with your problem.

The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.
