Re: no picture on screen
Initially, this would either be a defective LCD panel or its
interface. A way to verify is to play the portable DVD using an
external video monitor such as your TV. If still gray or blue screen
(no video) even in the TV/monitor, then it would be the video
If the video is displayed, then it would just be the LCD panel display.
it turns out to be the LCD display, it is very possible that it is a
backlighting issue. Most likely, it would be in the inverter and/or CCF
(cold cathode florescent) lamps. This is a relatively easy repair by
re-soldering. It is perhaps more of a task to open the panel lid/cover
of the LCD display.
This of course would require a fair
familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures,
use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage
access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram
with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY
(do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the
services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If you look very closely, is there an extremely dark picture, or a solid black screen?
If it's an extremely dark picture, you just need a new backlight.
If it's a black screen, you either have a bad connection (broken, shorted or unplugged cable), or need a new LCD.
Let me know, and we'll go from there.
If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.
Give this a try. Using your user's manual, locate the "Configuring your recorder" section. Under this section there will be "System setup - general" subsection. Being that you are unable to see anything on your tv display you will need to use your manual as your display. Press the "SETUP" key on your remote. Once again using your manual as your display, scroll down to "Restore factory settings" and press "ENTER" As long as you are located in North or Central America and using interlaced video outputs you should have your normal display back.
Hope this helps.
Sounds like the back lighting of the LCD screen is faulty. Is it a new unit - take it back. You might try the brightness and contrast controls and turn them up. If that doesn't help it needs to be repaired.
sounds like a faulty Backlight.. If you just bought this take it back and get it replaced, Check if the Manufacturer's warranty is still valid. if this was bought second hand (out of warranty) I would take it back. as it is unlikely that the prev owner did not know of this issue.
I responded to Parisica's problem, so you have read the "bad news" already. All I can add, is that we see your problem quite often, and without spouting a bunch of tech jargon, lets just say it is easier for the laser to read Cd's than DVD's, so quite often when the laser begins to fail, DVD's will no longer play, but Cd's are fine. I'm not an expert on your model, but Parisica mentions a menu setting that turns DVD video on & off, which may be worth checking, and also cleaning may help, as a dirty laser lense can give the same symptoms as a weak laser.
I don't want to get your hopes up, 2-3 years of service can certainly be long enough for laser problems, depending on how much you used it.
On the remote control of the DVD player, just press the P-scan, reset or video SW button.. That would fix it...
