Question about Sony DVP-FX820 DVD Player
If your unit is out of warranty as was mine, I removed the battery, removed all the screws from the bottom side of the player, to gain access to the inside components, and reseated (unplug & re-plug) the LCD Screen's connector to the main system board and corrected the issue.
The only issue I had in doing this was finding all of the screws! You will need to remove all of the rubber pads from the 4 corners of the unit, and also remove the warranty validation sticker that covers one screw. Once all of the screws were removed the bottom lifted off of the unit easily thus providing access to the components inside.
The LCD Screen's connector is what feeds the signal from the player's video output to the the screen. For my unit it was a small white rectangular plug that had several wires attached to it. This plug fits into a receptacle on the main system board.
I guess with all of the movement of the screen that this unit provides the connection had worked lose over time.
I hope this helps!
