Question about Astar PD-3015 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Unit quits after 10 minutes/ screen black and static- noaudio files on card

Astar DPF 7" digital picture frame. After 10 minutes or so, the picture quits, and static starts on the speakers. There are not any sound files on the CF card only pictures. Unit has played continuously since Xmas 2008. Showing the same pictures without a flaw. This just started. If I turn the unit off, it will start up fine for another 15 minutes or so and problem starts over again. It seems as it gets hotter, it takes less time to quit working-thanks!!

    I'm guessing your are correct or not far off- The unit has only been used since Xmas however it is an electronic piece of equipment. I suppose it would cost more to fix than buy a new one- I can't find the Astar company to inquire.. I don't have the booklet- it disappeared...I have lot of manuals but this one got lost -
    I thought maybe some had an experience with these items.
    Thanks!!

My dpf-0802 digital frame will not read my sdhc card and it is unolcked and all photos show on my computer.


Some frames are not able to use an SDHC card. You might double check the requirements from the manufacturer... or even easier, try a card that is just a plain-jane sd card.

Hope this helps!

Pictures don't fill screen on Kodak M820 Digital picture frame


Because a digital photo frame's display ratio doesn't always match the original picture ratio, some pictures cannot be displayed in a satisfactory manner. For example they may be rendered too small, with black borders, or they may be automatically zoomed-in and randomly cropped.

With a computer, this issue can be resolved by using generic photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, or specialized software like DPF Manager, Digital Frame Master or FrameSize, to properly crop the pictures before transferring them to the digital frame. Without a computer, there is no other option but manually deleting incompatible pictures by using frame's built-in functions.

Also, check the settings and try the "Fit to Screen" but, with some models the width of each landscape image is stretched to achieve an aspect ratio of 16:9, which results in noticeable distortion.

Can't download pictures on the digital photo frame


Try another memory card. Or the frame might be bad. I have seen them not work before. If another card works you might just need to reformat the bad card.

To fix the freezing problem, all you have to do is change the file names to basic numbers. If you have long file names, it causes the pictures to freeze up. Change the names, and the problem stops!
