Question about TruTech LMD-5702RT Portable DVD Player
Where can I find new cables for the trutech portable dvd player with dual screens?
I had to move my AV cable around quite a bit to get the second monitor to come on. I realized it was the cable and not the connection by holding steady the connections and moving just the wire. I checked Radio Shack and Best Buy - no luck...
Then I did the following (takes 30 minutes max):
1.) found the portion of the cable that was bad
2.) carefully sliced open the outer jacket (with a box cutter razor),
3.) carefully pulled the wires (white, red, yellow, and bare copper ground) out of the outer black jacket. Inspected and found no visible defects. Realized that likely the yellow wire (probably the video feed) was shorting against the bare ground...so did the following remaining steps to remove the ground away from other wires.
4.) cut and unwound the ground,
5.) put the white, red, and yelllow wires back inside the outer black jacket, but left the bare ground out
6.) wrapped the two ends of the bare ground (that I cut in step 4) around the outer black jacket (still containing the other wires)
7.) reconnected the two ends of the bare ground, by twisting them together (you'll use-up an inch or two of the ground to re-twist it, so you will have to leave a small bump in the cable from the excess black jacketed portion.
8.) use black electrical tape to wrap all the wires together from the portion we opened-up.
Works like a champ.
