Technicians charge $40 just to look at it. Then $80 an hour.
Throw it away and buy a new one for $100.

Strange noise when i turn on my portable dvd player

Hi, I wonder if the player has taken a bit of a hit on the lid and pushed the spindle table down a millimetre or so and causing the disc to rub - check the disc for scratches around its edges and inside the player for axial scratching from the disc rubbing. If there is none, then it sounds like spindle motor bearings may be on their way out.

My granddaughter spilled water on our player and it does not work. Is there possibly a fuse or is it just dead?

even if a fuse did blow the water most likely shorted out the solid state components inside therefore it probably wont work even with a new fuse

In put jack has disappeared inside the unit, can't charge battery. Can this be repaired?

it can be repaired, what you need to do is open the unit, and be careful not to loose the ac connection, and its simply a case of soldering the disconnected jack on to where it has fallen from. it may not be that damaged it may just be bent out of place.good luck.

Brightness bar is always on the screen.

What you have described is the brightness control being actived all the time. Did you spill any liquid in to it? You may try cleaning it with alcohol and a cotton swab on the inside too! Be carefull it you open it up.

You might try gently cleaning the laser eye with soft dry Q-tip. Other wise the laser will probably need replacing. I repair and sell portable DVD players.
