Question about Initial 5820 Portable DVD Player with Screen

Open Question

Portable DVD player Initial DVD-5820 screen out of synchrony

I have a portable DVD player Initial DVD-5820 and the screen is out of synchrony, the image are distorted and moving from up to down.

Do you know how to fix this?

I thought the cable from the main unit to the screen was broken, but no, the cables are fine, I opened the screen case and there are several pots, I don't know if one of them can adjust the synchrony of the image.

Have you any idea on how to correct this problem?

SOURCE: Initial 7'' TFT Monitor Portable DVD IDM-1731

I've had mine for four years now and I occasionally get the 'no disc' message. On mine, the problem seems to be with the sensor that checks if the cover is closed. It's a round cylinder white in color, about the diameter of a toothpick, located near the lower-left corner. Anyway, after opening the unit and tinkering with it a little bit, I found if I just tilt base of the DVD player a little bit as it is reading a disc I can get the player to work. Yes, it sounds hokey, but it works for me everytime I get the 'no disc' message.

On a related note, does anybody have a dead IDM-1731 they don't want? I would like to replace the LCD bezel on mine. If you have one, please send me an email, five_hole @ hotmail. Thanks!

SOURCE: my portable dvd player shows no disc when i put my dvd in player

Hi....
Very lightly clean the laser lens ( looks like a very small eyepiece)
with 91% or better alcohol on a swab. Then very lightly dry it off.
Also..have you tried another DVD or CD in it?
Check for dust or debris in where the laser pickup is

Disc says loading and goes no further


First try different DVD discs. All players of DVD or CD are likely to fail in this way over time. You can try to clean the lens inside the unit, but it may not fix it. Its wise to buy the cheapest replacement, because they never last much longer than a year.

How do you charge battery i have all pieces just not sure what gets plugged nto what


Take the A\C adapter and plug it into the wall. Insert the rechargeable battery pack (if the unit is rechargeable then it would have came with a special battery pack, you cannot just put rechargeable batteries in the unit and charge them!) into the unit. Take the other end of the A/C adapter and plug it into the back of the unit (will probably have a label like D/C input or something), it will probably only fit in one spot. Did you not get a manual, if not try googleing it??
Hope this helps
