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?

Re: Blob on screen

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

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".

Black screen with sound

Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was left the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...

All the best.

Disney Princess dvd player will NOT turn on or eject.

On front of television is the video, left and right audio plug ins. This is where you will plug the adapters from your dvd player. They are color coded for easy installation. Step2Make sure the adapter is also plugged in to back of dvd player. Step3Plug dvd player into power source and turn on. Step4On the front of television there is a tv/av button. Press this button twice or until it says video 2 in upper left hand corner of television. Step5Insert movie into dvd player and enjoy. To get your tv back to cable press tv/av button once.

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???

2nd screen not working

So I had the same thing and I was pretty upset because Walmart wouldn't take it back!  So, I don't know what inspired me to do this, but I simply switched the yellow and black plugs that go in between the screens.  So plug the yellow connector into the black hole on both screens and then the black connector into the yellow holes.  Now it works perfect.  It still doesn't work if I try to switch it back.  Weird, but you might as well give it a shot, it worked for us!
