Question about Durabrand DUR-1700 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Picture upsidedown This unit has worked very well for 10 months. (Manufactured May 2006; Purchased Nov. 2006) Today the picture reversed itself, and now only plays upside down. I am the only one who uses this, and I have not changed any settings, etc, since I played a disc yesterday. Please help me fix this! Diana Durabrand Dual 7-C

Re: Picture upsidedown

This has happened on my player, I think I closed the lid and then switched a switch on the side or front that is related to screen orientation either up or down and wide or full screen. Then I reopened the player and it was right side up. Hope this helps.

Ok I purchased a philips dvd/vhs combo today and I can watch dvd and hear it great... but when I put a vhs in I get picture and no sound can anyone help me on this.. please

Check sound settings . If unit is set to Dolby change it to PCM. Most likely you have already went through other settings. If this does not work let me know the models of he unit and tv and what you have tried already and I will try to help

Sorry the unit itself probally have a major or micro cracks into it PCB board.After it repair by a tv tech.The unit still could be also have bad or damges picture to the LCD screen panel too itself.The unit was drop hard or high up like from 3 or 4 feets?Not worth and a wast of the money for a repair for a drop electronic equipments with a LCD screen panel.Unit now only have 50/50 chances for the unit to work correctly again or without the unit LCD screen panel to have damages or picture to the LCD screen panel be effected.Best just buy a new one.

Tries unplug,replug it back like an hour later.Letting the DVD player resetting itself back to the factory setting.Tries it than,see if it work than.Not,than tries hook it up with the RCA component cable Y,R,W.If still have the same problems,the PCB in the DVD player is bad.Not worth repairing.Trash it.DVD players are very cheap these days.U can get a brand new one like for $40 dollars.

Toshiba DS5000KU no picture

how is it connected - what cables do you use? If it is HDMI try unplugging it and plug it back in. Sometimes this will reset the picture. If it's not HDMI then you will need another setting.

No picture, but can hear sound

hold down the stop button for 5 sec on your dvd player not the one on the remote control

Check your connections. Make sure they are hooked up correctly(ie yellow to yellow. Check both the connectoins on the dvd player and the tv.

New Player freezes up on or after track 12

this is the same response to another post
the unit i purchased ran great for about 2 months then the video started to freeze. power cycled solved the problem initially, but when power cycling did not cure the problem, i started shaking and tapping the unit. at a point of throwing the unit away - took the cover off to see what's inside. with the cover off, it ran just fine . put the cover back, ran ok for a while then started freezing video again.
twisting the unit appears to make it function..
my solution that appears to work for my unit. .
loosen only the two back screws holding the plastic drive mechanism down to the bottom plate (chassis) assumption is that the metal chassis was twisting the drive mechanism and offsetting the photo pickup.
this has worked for the past 2 weeks without a problem.

No Picture

sounds like the digital video controller went out. you can test this on this unit by using the coax out and connecting to your tv, it seems to have its own video card looking inside the unit, however it is possible it is controlled centrally thorugh the main card in that case you will confirm by it not working and still only gettting sound through the coax.
