Question about Curtis DVD8017 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

HELP!!! my portable DVD player isn't charging correctly

I have a Curtis DVD8017 and it is fairly new. I plug it in and it says it is charging and then several hours later, I try using it and it works for a few minutes but then shuts off as if it is sucking up huge amounts of power per second. It has been happening non stop for over a month. When I plug it into the car adapter, it plays until I unplug it. When it is plugged into any outlet other than the car, it does not work.

    I just bought the dvd player about 20 mins ago and when I plug it in to the outlet and press the power button it will not turn on. I've tried several different outlets with no luck.

If it is under warranty, then try to get another battery from the company or you can get another battery yourseld on ebay like item number 250261738286. When rechargeable battery operated devices act like this, it is most likely due to a battery that just does not charge to full capacity because it is old (I did take not that you mentioned that it is fairly new) or just bad. Let us know know how it goes.

My CURTIS DVD 8017 is not working. The battery


Hello,

The reason your player is not working could be as a result of a faulty power panel or the main board.

To test the panel,

open the player from the bottom with the appropriate screwdriver,

get a meter reader and test all the components of the player,

start with the power pack and the main board to see if any capacitor is faulty,

once you detect the faulty component,

replace the board,

couple the player back together,

plug the player to a power source,

ensure the power source is at the level of current the player can work with.

do not expose to a very high current.

take care.

I lost my ac charger and need to know where to order a new one


I think the DVD Player was made for Target, you might be able to go there and find one and get the info off the power supply (charger) and take the unit and the info to Radio Shack for a replacement. If they can not help try calling MCM Electronics at 1-800-543-4330

My Brand new never used Curtis dvd 8017


Give it a about 24 hours. It might need to declimatize. Also, thry charging the battery pack first and/or try turning it on with the power adapter only (battery pack off the unit). If this does nothing, they to get or borrow a voltmeter to make sure the power adapter is giving out a votage. This will troubleshoot wether it is the unit or the adapter. Let us know how it went.

Curtis DVD8017 portable dvd player


Try cleaning the DVD lens with a cotton swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol. The DVD lens is what emits the laser from the unit. Let it dry and try again. Also try using a different DVD. Let us know if it worked and don't forget to rate me :)

Movie does not play


Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.
