Why is it that everyones solution is to dump it and buy another? Thats why our planet is going to ****! how hard is it to give directions to fix it rather than toss it in the trash? So far I have found 20 sites saying that they have the answer to your DVD players malfunction, untill you read the comontary you find that they all say "well you got you moneys worth, even if you only turned it on once". I say BS. to you people!!!

Sound as if the ccfl backlight tube is may be able to fix this yourself..but getting parts may be a battle...most consumer electronic manufacturers won't sell parts to may need to find a distributor for oem distributor I used to work for and is a Phillips parts supplier is Union electronic distributors( Of course you will need to know the part number for the ccfl lamp tube...which you obtain fron the service may be able to get the part no. from Phillips Customer service....anyway, the lamp should either have a connector on it of may need to be soldered in..either's not too hard to replace...a word of caution though..the ccfl inverter driver circuit that the tube connects to puts out as much as 2000 be sure not to touch it while it's on..

Portable DVD player PET719 image not available, the screen goes totally white. Sound is ok


this problem is usually common with portable DVDs.

The fault is from the flex that connects the screen to the main board.

Fault also usually comes for screen board and the screen itself.

I would advice that you take it for a checkup so that the problem would be fixed.

This problem is a common one.

I wish you the best.

is that a portable DVD player? if so it sounds like the backlight had died on you. I would contact the manufacturer and see if it is covered under warranty.

Check the screen switch on the right top side where the door closes there is a little circle and the release switch usually gets jammed (this is a common defect) you will need a small thin flat head screwdriver to pry out the switch.

The back light of the monitor might be defective. or the drive signal might not be getting to the screen you will need a schematic, multimeter, and an oscilloscope to troubleshoot this issue. This is how you will have to go about this using the schematic locate the screen test points measure the voltages with the multimeter and look at the signals with the oscilloscope. this will lead to you finding the exact problem.
