This may not be the solution but its worth a try to asking you. Make sure the player is not too cold. LCD's like to be at a comfortable room temperature. Good luck.

Do you mean usage time with one charging then you will get approximately 2.5 hours at full charge.
If you mean the how many years the battery will work with out replacement then it will depend on the way of usage. Also the company itself cant tell how many years it will work perfectly.

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?'
