    My Mother In Law asked me to fix this unit (polaroid PDM-1040) which is playing the vids upside down. The Polaroid logo when the unit is turned also displays upside down.

Hello,

If you press and hold the mode button it will cycle through 4:3 , 16:9, after 16:9 it should flip over.

Thanks

Monitor 2 - Image is upside down and backwards


Check your graphic card settings. I have a 6600gt, and can invert my screen. Try going: right click your desktop, select properties. Go the settings tab. Clieck advanced. There do you have a tab for your graphics card? Mine shows I have a 6600Gt. After selecting the tab it displays options. I have NVrotate. That rotates my screen.

Stops Playing: screen freezes


My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

Our VENTURER PVS6271 DVD PLAYER keeps playing upside down.


I called Venturer's support line. They are aware of the problem (a connection between the player and the monitor). True in my case because i can connect it to a television and it plays fine. For $45 (flat rate) they will repair or replace the units with new 1 yr warranty. The $45 includes their shipping it back to you, but naturally I'll have to play postage to send it to them. (The number I called was 800-252-6123)

The shipping address is:
Venturer Electronics (make check out to this name)
203 Eggert Road
Buffalo, NY 14215

I was given a reference number to put on the outside of the box, but I'm sure it was specific to my name and address they requested.

Good luck to you (and me)!

On most of the set top DVD players you use the monitor button or the remote control menu button to access the mode that flips the display (invert). The mode is for those who mount the units to the ceiling of a vehicle for rear passengers to view. You might have to have a DVD playing at the time or just loaded in the stop mode to access the feature.
