Question about Bravo OH-104R 10.4 in. Car Monitor

1 Answer

I have a bravo 10.4 montitor

Thanks for your time. My monito only flashes the pitcure for second when I put a dvd movie in the player unit. I thought it was the dvd player at first but when I plug a camcorder to the monitor unit from teh side rca inputs i get the same response. The problem I found out is that the picture brightness is very very soft. It only shows the full picture in brightness for a second and then shuts to very very low light. I tried to turn up the brightness but no luck. It sounds like to me that this monitor is going bad. If so, can it be fixed? and is it worth it? or is it something i can fix myself??? what part is the most common problem??
thasnk again for your time.

If it's still under warranty, rma it. the website for your product manufacturer is
I can't say for sure if it is worth repairing or not, it sounds like either the backlight tube or inverter is going out, if it is not under warranty you can disassemble it and locate the backlight inverter then do a search for the part number. unfortunately without the inverter part number i can't give you an idea of the repair price.

the most common problems i have seen with these units are broken or loose ribbon between monitor and processor, blown backlight ccf (black screen, but can see display using a flashlight), inverter or ccfl dying (dim picture, blotchy brightness, flickering brightness)

hope this helps

    no pic, but they all look pretty much the same, if you remove the back of the monitor, you should have a rectangular pc board with at least one heavily (in comparison to the rest) insulated wire, thats going to be your inverter. it will have the least amount of wires going to it and coming out of it. usually it only has 2, but i have seen them with 4-5 wires.

Dear Sirs, Recently, my Sharp dvd-video combi player has been encountering some problems regarding the playing of dvd's. When I watch a movie, in several occasions the movie will freeze up. And for...

the DVD unit in your sharp is a self contained unit. IT is only repaired by replacing the DVD as a assembly. the cost of replacing may exceed the cost of purchasing a new one.
The most likely cause of your problem is in the brass gear assy that runs the optical pick up in the traverse deck. IT is not an available part.

3. Turn the unit back on, wait for the time to display.
4. unplug the unit and leave unpluged for 30 seconds
5. plug the unit back in and turn it on, the time should not display should be blank.
6. Unit should go into startup wizard like it is being started for the the very first time. follow the prompts.
7. In the setup menue, I believe it is under disc settings, select set to factory settings.

Once I completed these, I put the netflix movie back in and it now runs,

Hope the same works for you

I had one of the Coby DVD players. Mine did the same thing. Figured out that the unit was overheating. Kids were using it on the floor on the carpet. It would also freeze in the middle of movies and the only way to fix it was to unplug it. Avoid putting it inside of an entertainment center. You might want to try blowing a small fan on the unit to keep it cool

My head unit wont play dvd's wile im driving

There is no e-brake override code. You have to hardwire it to bypass the e-brake. Take the peach-colored wire and ground it to metal inside the dash. Put a toggle switch inline on the wire and mount it somewhere you can reach it. When you get the blue screen when starting a movie, open the switch for 3-5 seconds, then close it again to reapply the ground. Your movie will start up, and you can then drive away with it playing.

How to reset recorder

The solution to hold the pause button for 5 seconds is a winner. Just make sure you press the DVD button first. This doesn't work in VCR mode. This button is on the actual unit, NOT the remote. Thanks for this help.
