Question about Apex Digital AD-5131 DVD Player

Open Question

I have an Apex DVD player, AD-5131. When the power button is pushed, the red light blinks. Should it be solid red. Also, the "open/close" button does not open the DVD drawer.

SOURCE: Change picture on Apex AD-1500

Yes, though it's a bit complicated. It's explained in detail here: In a nutshell, on most models you can change the bios with a CD that you can burn. This includes adding your own background image. I'd say, even if your model number shows one you can't upgrade, try it anyway. It's likely the previous owner upgraded to a CD flashable bios.

My daughters had the same problem, try replacing C411 (I think that was the number on the board), its a 10V 1000uf capacitor in what appears to be the 5V power supply section toward the right rear of the main board, that fixed it. On hers the capacitor was swelled up on the end. I checked it out of the circuit and the DVM I used only indicated it had about 500uf capacity.

SOURCE: dvd player not loading

I openned mine up and found that the lens carrige was not in the fully retracted position. I pushed it all the way back to the back of the slide. Then I removed the two screws on either side of the spindle support so I could get to the lens. I hit the lens with some compressed air, plugged it in and loaded a disk and it worked like a champ. Listening to some Stevie Ray Vaughn right now!!! And going to watch some movies later. ;)

Good luck, I hope this helps someone.

I have an apex ad-5131 dvd player i want to hoook up speakers to to but how? i dont understand the coaxil i matched all of them by color to color but it still doesn't work

The outputs on the dvd are line level and will need to be hooked up to an external amplifier or stereo receiver in order to make speaker work...all you do is hook the audio output right (red) and left(white) to the amplifier and then hook the speakers to the speaker outputs on the amplifier

The Laser Pickup Assembly is malfunctioning, try cleaning the Laser Pickup Lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol. If this fails cheaper to replace than repair.
