Question about Polaroid Portable DVD Player PDM-0822BD

1 Answer

Brightness hidden DVD plays but screen is black. I am having trouble turning up the brightness. I have not used the unit in a while and i think it got turned down to black by accident. I assume it has to do with the mode button. Thanks in advance. JD

Black TV screen: no image, just sound


Sounds like the brightness might have been turned down. Does it have a manual brightness control? Sometimes there is a combination of buttons you can push on the remote to reset the TV to factory specs. Add some more info about the TV, Make, Model #

ACER ASPIRE BRIGHTNESS STAYS AT EITHER 100% BRIGHTNESS OR 0% NOT INBETWEEN


You are correct in thinking it may be a driver issue. Check the device manager and see if the drivers are installed. Under "Display Adapter", you should see the make and model of your device. If it shows up as Standard VGA Adapter, then you are using built in drivers and should look for the right drivers.

If everything looks good otherwise, then you are probably looking at a faulty LCD/LED. A faulty LCD/LED can yield all kinds of problems, and replacing the entire unit is usually the easiest option. On average an LCD/LED is more or less $50.

Brightness bar is always on the screen.


What you have described is the brightness control being actived all the time. Did you spill any liquid in to it? You may try cleaning it with alcohol and a cotton swab on the inside too! Be carefull it you open it up.

Audiovox D1812 disc loads & plays but VERY dim screen


Sounds like the backlight isn't working, could be the flourescent tube or the inverter that powers it. At least those are the likely suspects in other LCD monitors that have similar problems.

I have a bravo 10.4 montitor


if it's still under warranty, rma it. the website for your product manufacturer is http://www.bravoview.com/
I can't say for sure if it is worth repairing or not, it sounds like either the backlight tube or inverter is going out, if it is not under warranty you can disassemble it and locate the backlight inverter then do a search for the part number. unfortunately without the inverter part number i can't give you an idea of the repair price.

the most common problems i have seen with these units are broken or loose ribbon between monitor and processor, blown backlight ccf (black screen, but can see display using a flashlight), inverter or ccfl dying (dim picture, blotchy brightness, flickering brightness)

hope this helps

To even things out you need to use the controls on the monitor to lower the brightrnes. to acceptable levels. When playing a DVD there are seperate controls in the software and your graphics driver to adjust the Video Overly settings. Look for settings called gamma and brightness in the video overlay settings in the windows display properties panel. This should help even things out some. Deal is to crank down the brightness on the monitor and crank it up in the video settings in windows. It will make the DVD's brighter and rest of the time the regular screen darker.
