Question about Protron PDV-288 7" LCD Portable DVD Player

Blob on screen

My daughter recently turned her DVD player on only to find a "black blob" in the lower left hand corner of the screen.  It looks like what an inkwell spilled on a piece of paper would resemble.  Any ideas how this would happen or what I can do to fix it?

You will need to replace the screen to remedy this situation. The screen has been stressed somehow, and is broken internally...accordianman

Where do i put the dvd in at and how to turn it on


  1. Press the open/close latch on the front of the DVD player.
  2. When the screen drops down look up at the compartment where it was. Press the upper right hand corner button on the DVD player to drop the little black tray.
  3. Just place the DVD in upside down and click it into place.
  4. Now close the little black try.
  5. The unit powers up as soon you drop the screen down. You can also power it on with the remote power button which is all the way up and all the way to the left on the remote.
regards, Tony

When my daughter touches any object with the pen nothing happens. It will keep telling you to touch a picture on the screen with your pen.


You need to recalibrate. Try pushing B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take a few tries to get it to recalibrate correctly.

The blob is a phisically damaged part of the LCD screen. Unfixable, the screen must be replaced and it will be expensive.

Sony DVP-FX730 Portable DVD flashing "Hold on"


There should be a "hold" button to the left of the headphone jack that you can slide and it should stop your screen from displaying "hold on".

NO DISC


I bought a Dora DVD player for my daughter in March 2007. On November 2007 I inserted a disc into the player. It spun and stated there was no disc on the tv in the upper left hand corner. I tried 2 other DVDs and the same thing happened. I unplugged everything temporarily and plugged it back in and no improvements???
