Citizen Portable DVD Player Model #CO7PDV12

Hi,
The screen on the DVD player is all "scattered". Usually, when you start the unit you get a blue screen with the letters "DVD" embossed on the blue background. This is all scattered. Inserting a dvd and hitting "play" does play the dvd, but again, it is all scattered.

It would seem that the screen is OK because there is an image there (albeit, all scattered). So is the problem with the software? Hardware?

I don't want to ship it off to Citizen's repair centre in Ontario if they are going to charge half as much money for a replacement just to look at it.

I'm ready to buy a new one but hate adding yet another piece of electronics to the landfill.

Any ideas?

John

SOURCE: DVD player reloads after 5 minutes into the movie

I have a K715 that was having the same problem. The "line select" had been switched from "in" instead of "out". Once I switched it back to "out", the player worked normal.

Likely to be a classic laser failure. It will require technical person to replace it - try starting with the point of sale and see about warranty etc

I was playing with settings on my Zenith xbv342 and set the menu to progressive scan. I now have a blue screen with the words "progressive scan mode" I cannot get a picture and it is stuck in this m


Progressive scan mode is used by DVD players to artificially scale standard resolution DVDs to HD resolution, usually 720i. Is your set capable of receiving HD resolution? If not, that is probably why you are getting the blue screen.

Audiovox PVS69701 Dual Screen DVD player monitor has blue screen


I had the same problem, and it seems to be a short in the video cable between the two monitors. I can bend my cable until i see the second screen and then tuck it under the headrest. I am currently looking for a replacement cable. I see it at 1800customersupport.com, but will also check the local radioshack since I need it quickly.

Intermitting blue screen whilst watching my dvd


I'll need more information, but it sounds like an encoded (for copy protection) dvd being played through another device before going to the TV. That intermittent blue screen is usually that. How are you hooking up to your TV?

Screen is green when trying to play a DVD


Hi,
I think DVD player is hooked with TV via component video input.

Check component video connections and make sure each color wire connect in same correspondence color in both units, TV and DVD Player.

Red to red, green to green and blue to blue.

Scattered picture bars on screen


if the bars are not there when watching a dvd or vcr then i would point to a grounding problem with your cable antenna/.

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!
