Question about Protron PDV-288 7" LCD Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

My screen is all blue but I can hear the DVD playing.

Even when the player is first turned on, all I get is a blue screen. I have only used the DVD player a few times but have had it for a while.

    Yes if you can find a cable for it, typically the unit has (2) compression terminations, one on either end. Use care when undoing those keepers as they are Fragile!...accordianman

What color is the e brake wire on clarion max385vattempting to overide the park brake issue so I can watch dvd's car is a 98 Camry


The most common way to solve this is to ground the E Brake wire and the deck thinks the E Brake is always on. if that fails you may have a somewhat smarter deck and may have to go to plan B.
This is a common solution to bypass the e-brake screen,

1st you will need to purchase a 12 volt or above Momentary Push Button/(Toggle)switch (about $5 Radio Shack)

2nd Using the Diagonal Pliers adjust the length of the Radio's Emergency Brake Wire to your desire. Make sure you have enough wire so you can mount it where you can easily access it like beneath your steering wheel/ on the Dash Board.

3rd Connect one end to the emergency brake wire from the radio and then connect the other wire from the switch to a ground to your car. You can use the same ground connection that you used for the radio and it will be fine. Make sure you wrap up the wires using the Electrical Tape to prevent shorts.

4th (Using Button Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just press the button (4x Times)for one second and release it. On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.

5th (Using Toggle Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just flip the switch on and off (4x Times). On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.

Hopefully this helps.

    Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD


    Very Good Daniel,
    if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
    Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
    You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
    I've done a few times.
    Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

    Toshiba Flat Screen Problem


    Is there a switch on the side of the remote? If there is make sure it is switched to TV. If there is not, try removing the batteries from the remote for 5-10 minutes. It should revert to the TV mode. Thanks for using fixya.
