Screen has a "haze" over 1/3 of is okay

This may be due to a bad contact in the connector. If you unscrew and remove the back cover, there is bunch of wires coming from the LCD with a male or female, I forgot, connector on the end, which plugs into its counterpart on the main board. That connector may not be fuly plugged in. The chance that this is indeed the case is no more than 10%. Unfortunatey it looks like this the electronics failure - 70% or LCD itself - 20%

No Disc message

Turn off the power.

Open the lid and gently push the laser mechanism to the outermost point of the slot.

Power on and try a disc again.

Also try cleaning the laser lens with a mild foam cleaner and cotton swap. Leave to dry and re-try a disc.

If neither work, then the laser is probably faulty. If the unit will play CDs but not DVDs, then this is a good sign of a faulty laser.

No picture but has sound

Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!

Cause: DVD+VCR was turned off while setting the Progressive scan mode. Correction: Keep pressing the STOP button for more than 5 seconds.
