    On mine the led on the power supply flashes when it is pluged in, but is on solid when unpluged. Opened the case to find a 3.6volt ni-mh battery on the main board the had exploded blowing one end completely off the board. When I unplug the power board (the one where the supply pluges in) the led stays lit, but just connect that board back to the main and it just starts flashing. Now I know chips and other devices usally don't blowup when they fail, Iam thinking some else is the cause of the problem and sent to much voltage to the battery causeing it to fail. Since I can't seem to find a service manual or a schematic on the web I'm going to had to try and trouble shoot it the old way.The time and tedious way. When I find out anything I 'll write again.

    I have done research on-line and found that the black lcd screen is probably caused by the back light failing and it appears to be a very common problem. I brought my unit (which I love and can not live without) to the local electronics repair yesterday. They should have it about a week and I will send a blog once I have info on the repair. Good luck!!!

Hi everyone, I don't know if you have solved your issues yet or not, since these posts are from a while ago, but I have had the same issue. The problem is that of the back-light inverter circuit. The original part is defective and the chip that powers the coils will continually burn out. You can pick up a cheaper replacement substitute here:

The part can be found just behind the screen on the bottom if you take the back panel of the screen off.

Hope this helps1

Remote does not work

try replacing the battery.

What I have done is open up the case and make sure all the water is dry. If not, use a hair dryer to dry it clean, being careful not to 'overheat' the unit in case you burn up any chips on the board.

If this does not work, replace it.

Backlight doesn't work

Hey Nascar580, you can pick up an replacement substitute part from here:

The original part UI8007S-1 is defective and the IC chip that powers the coil will contually burn out. The replacement was designed due to this flaw.

Good luck!

Ok this is a sure fire way of getting that DVD out. Open up the unit, find the load and unload gear, rotate the gear and that should eject the carriage slide. That's it.
