It won't unfortunately. The ports on the DVD player itself are output only. You would literally need to open it up and solder input ports onto the board. I'm not sure how skilled you are in this particular area so I wouldn't recommend it. You can't just strip off one of the cables and connect them directly to the monitor because the internal board is responsible for maintaining power levels and recoding the source signal into something compatible for the monitor itself. I wish I had better news for you.

SOURCE: Initial 7'' TFT Monitor Portable DVD IDM-1731

I've had mine for four years now and I occasionally get the 'no disc' message. On mine, the problem seems to be with the sensor that checks if the cover is closed. It's a round cylinder white in color, about the diameter of a toothpick, located near the lower-left corner. Anyway, after opening the unit and tinkering with it a little bit, I found if I just tilt base of the DVD player a little bit as it is reading a disc I can get the player to work. Yes, it sounds hokey, but it works for me everytime I get the 'no disc' message.

On a related note, does anybody have a dead IDM-1731 they don't want? I would like to replace the LCD bezel on mine. If you have one, please send me an email, five_hole @ hotmail. Thanks!
