Venturer PVS1960 in-car DVD system- neither screen powers up

I have a Venturer PVS1960 in-car DVD system. For no obvious reason, neither screen will power up anymore. They haven't suffered any shock damage and the unit appears to be receiving 12VDC.The unit turns on and off, DVD spins, but nothing is sent to either of the LCD displays and there is no sound. I checked the AV IN/DVD switch on the side of the machine to make sure it is set to DVD. However, when I try to check the kill switch on the base of the unit, I can not find the pinhole that shuts off the screen when the lid is closed. Can someone better explain where this is? I don't see a pinhole on the exterior of the base and don't want to poke around inside. Thanks. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, could be:
  • cable/connector problem;
  • 12VDC power supply/regulator;
  • monitor itself. Could be tested with another external video source and a shorter RCA to RCA cable.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I have the same exact model and problem. MY sister has the same model so I tried troubleshooting with her equipment to figure what exactly was malfuntioning and it is the player itself that does not work. Nothing is wrong with my cords or screens but when they are hooked to my player nothing happens. I tried to find just the player to replace it and I can't. hope this helps.
Good Luck!
