Change screen on portable dvd

My kids have a portable dvd player. you can not see the picture, just the outline of a picture. but it plays perfectly. you can hook it up to the tv and it plays. my question, should I change the screen, is it worth it? new ones can be less than $100.
thanks for your time.

My grand daughter dropped her DVD player on the rug and now it only has half a screen. Is it worth it to have it repaired and who repairs trutech.

Re: change screen on portable dvd

You can try pushing the little black button at the top middle of the main part of the dvd player when it is open, where the screen folds down onto it. This has worked for us. Good luck.

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.
