Question about Televison & Video

I have a Venturer PVS166W portable dvd player. It was working fine the last time I used it but have had it in storage(a box under the bed), for months and it won't switch on. I've had it plugged into the mains and tried it on it's battery but will not power up. Please help!

I recommend pulling the cover off of it. You should see a glass bus fuse. Inside the fuse, there should be a thin wire running all the way across it. If the wire is broken or it looks burnt, then replace with same size fuse.
If fuse is good, then you could have a faulty power supply/high-voltage transformer (the box that is attached to plug-in cord)
You can possibly order a new one from shopjimmy.com or partstore.com or tigerdirect.com
The old one will have to be soldered off and new one soldered on.
If you see a DC voltage output sticker on the player, you can use a voltmeter and test the connection where the supply/transformer wires attach to the main circuit board. Test here and see if the voltage is the same as what the sticker says.

Venturer - PDV880 9901321 The Disc goes too fast. It started OK then all of a sudden stopped working. Put another dvd in and does the same thing. We have used this 4 times. Got it as a gift. Don't know where they bought it.

Venturer dvd problem


You can sometimes find discs on the internet for failry cheap that changes the region of the disc before the disc loads. So you might try and find a "region changer disc" on the net. Otherwise, lots of times, once a players region has been changed more than once or twice it will not allow another. If you have already changed it back to region 2 and it is still not working, you might have a bad dvd player now. Hate to be the barer of bad news.
