    I can confirm this did the trick on mine as well. I just bought mine off ebay and it wasnt packaged well. There was no padding so i'm sure it got bumped.

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!

    rich-in-tn...thanks for the suggestion. I was able to hear the dvd playing but couldn't see it; this fix was quite simple and worked on the first try. All in all it took less than 15 minutes to fix. For those with the same problem who want to fix it on your own, keep in mind that the four screws around the swivel base, including the one with the warranty sticker covering it are larger than the other eleven screws. Thanks for saving me the time and money to go out and buy a new portable dvd player. Now the kids can beat it some more.

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.
