    Notre écran est noir, le son fonctionne et nous ne voyons absolument rien malgré les tests. Pouvez-vous nous recommander un technicien dans la région de montréal qui connait ce type d'appareil pour corriger le tout merci.

    I've got 1 for you guys- I have 2 of these units (one is the Myron Davis & the other is the Nextar) & both are displaying the same symptoms. The screen is dark but if you press the LCD/OFF button on the remote, the screen briefly appears as normal & then it goes off again. Press the button x2 again & it briefly appears & goes off. The same symptoms occur every time you repeat these steps with both units. Any ideas where I should be looking & what components to look for? I'm a tech myself & have access to most of these components & can do the repairs myself but if anyone knows something about these it would be much appreciated

I had the same problem. I switched the AV switch from OUT to IN and back, a few times, and the LCD image miraculously and surprisingly returned.

Hi Claude,

It could be any of the three video related sub-systems:
1. Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp;
2. Inverter board; and/or
3. Video interface board.

Of the three, 1 and 2 has been known to occur more often. To verify if it's either the CCF Lamp or the inverter, pls:
a. run the unit normally albeit you can't see anything. Pop in a known good DVD disc and play.
b. shine a flashlight at an angle relative to the screen;
c. see if you can see some semblance of the video (though it may really be very dark).

If yes there is display but dark, then you have isolated the problem to either of the 2, if none then the problem is with the video interface.

Corrective procedures would require knowledge and familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable on a Do-it-Yourself, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional or your friendly neighborhood electronic shop.

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.

Hey, I dont know if i have a solution, I stumbled on your posting looking for parts for my MP007. I have sound but no screen also and noticed that when I try to use a Playstation 2 on it and fidget with the AV in/out switch while in the "in" position, the picture cuts in and out. So im going to replace the switch and see if that works.

Appreciate the "Ask Me". I am assuming that you tried the flashlight test.

Fixing the old one would of course require familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM & a soldering iron as well as availability of discrete components (your friendly neighborhood electronics part store may have them in stock). Normal culprits would be dried up, blistered or leaky capacitors. Rarely do the semiconductors break down (switching transistors) in an inverter circuit (but they would also from time to time). Often, it would be a case of cold/open solder and repairs involve is simply re-application of heat with a soldering iron and a dab of soldering lead. In instances where mostly everything checks out OK, it would be a resistor that has opened or gone up in value.

A replacement would be available (easiest to do). Most inverters used by portable DVD players are also used in laptops, GPS, depth/fish finders and other electronic devices that uses LCD display. That being said, the inverter would be manufactured by another company and would have their own part number not necessarily that of the player's manufacturer. Doing a Google for "inverter P/N" where P/N is the part number and you might be lucky.

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.
