Hello tcbman93,

It sounds like your backlight circuit is bad. This usually can be replaced, but, I have bad news for you, Amphion Mediaworks is no longer in business. The closed their doors a few years ago. In addition there is very little to no service documentation on their products so finding a repair shop willing to repair these units will be a task in and of itself.

Your best bet is to buy a new unit, or attempt to find a shop willing to repair the unit. I have had 4 customers I had to turn away for lack of finding the proper documentation to begin repairs on their systems.

I even had one customer try to sue me because while I repaired his DVD player I had to use what I knew about DVD players, and he wanted copies of the service documentation, but refused to believe that there was no documentation.

So I do wish you well,

Thank you,
Shuttle83

    Hello tcbman93,



    I did not work at AMW, but we did a lot of work on their electronics. They were very secretive about their schematics and enegineering data, but it was not until they went under that we understood why. They did not have complete diagrams of their own stuff, since they bought everything in bulk off-shore (Taiwan and Hong Kong) and paid for off-shore (China and Mexico) assembly of the purchased components. They were basically a sales-house with no technical personnel to speak of.



    Thank you,

No Sound!!!!


That is called a TV, DVD combo. You either need the 6 legged sound IC chip replaced or the tuner needs a resolder on a cold solder joint inside it. (i've done this a few times, with a large magnefying glass)

No picture, but can hear sound


hold down the stop button for 5 sec on your dvd player not the one on the remote control

Check your connections. Make sure they are hooked up correctly(ie yellow to yellow. Check both the connectoins on the dvd player and the tv.

Your unit has a composite output. Hook a standard TV up to this connection and try it. If you have a picture your display on the portable unit is bad. Sounds like you lost the backlight. You would need to have a tech look at this to fix it. Good luck.

Dim screen


This could either be an inverter issue, or a backlight issue. Lamp replacement varies from very easy, seconds, to impossible without returning the entire panel to a service depot. There are some other possibilities (cables, motherboard problems controlling the backlight) but they are RARE. Inverters are relatively cheap (they are not "cheap", but they are still 80% less than a new LCD panel and 75% less than replacement backlight IF you could get it replaced). A new inverter is likely to be in the $50-$75 range. Any difference when working with batteries as opposed to AC? If so then it could be related to a power saving setting. But if your screen is completely dark, only visible with a light flashed at the screen, then that's not it. Good luck post a comment for the result
