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

1 Answer

While working the Video images breaking up and freezing? While playing a DVD-R the image skips, breaks, hesitates. I can play this dvd on my pc and a cyberhome dvd portable player and it plays fine. It is a newly created disc so there is no scratches on the disk. The Protron I have will not play DVD+R's. I tried cleaning the lens without any luck. I checked power pack vs. straight power without any luck. Any other suggestions to check?

Some sets, including this series, have a propensity for not being able to play DVD+R discs due to the colorization of the layers. Sorry...accordianman

DVD Freezing / skipping

It almost has to be the discs. Try them in a friends unit.

I had a similar problem with DVD's I burned and had printed labels and put the label on the discs. It caused the disc to be out of balance. I peeled them all off (what a job) and the discs play fine now. I'm now a "magic marker" person... :)

CyberHome DVR 1500

The 1500 needs to have a cooling fan installed and possibly the power supply repaired if it has been damaged from overheating to make it work reliably. It's rare but the DVD drive sometimes breaks or wears out. You can test it on a PC with instructins on my website here:
