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

Portable dvd player dropped now has sound and faint picture


I usually prefer to fix things but here unless this is a very expensive unit let it go, it did enough damage to cause image issues and a screen hinge broken, if it can be repaired it will always be prone to some collateral issues that may show up later, like a small car in a accident, no matter how good the repair place is it will never be quite the same.

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.

The cyberhome no picture when playing a dvd on the ch-ldv 712


Sometimes portable DVD players allow you to switch to a secondary TV for playback. When this happens it disables the primary screen on the portable DVD player.

Thats usually the culprit as to why that happens.

If you have that feature on your portable DVD player you should check it out.
