Our car dvd player has audio and a dark screen you can barely see. HELP

    This happened, though, right after the car was jumped (in the wrong spot) with jumper cables and blew a bunch of fuses. Could there be a fuse or wire that could be replaced for the DVD?

    Thank you for your help. We can remove the player ourselves and take it to a repair shop, but do you think replacing the inverter is a huge cost? More than $100.00??

Hello,

Have you tried unplugging it from the power source already and leaving it overnight? This will help the system to do a reset.

Let me know how it goes.

If you can see the image and it's ok then the problem is in the back-lighting of the screen  (the part that makes the light shine thru the screen) - when you jumped it the power spike it generated has fried the inverter that powers the CCFL tubes for the screen. This damage is in the screen itself (inside the player) so no, it's not a fuse or wire, if it would been one the entire unit would have been dead.
To fix it the player must be removed from the car, dismantled, the screen accessed and the inverter replaced. All this is a job for an electronics repair shop , take it to one, there's nothing more you can do.

The back light that illuminates the DVD screen is defective, the cost to replace this is more than most players cost, suggest you replace it, if it is a factory unit that came with the car as standard equip then you will need to have it repaired by a factory approved repair center

Screen will not stay bright


That's the battery saver feature of that Philips portable. If you use an A/C power adapter, the light will stay bright.

Screen is dark


If it uses the same technology as a laptop screen, there is 2 backlights behind the screen, they are like very thin fluorescent tubes (cold cathode) and there is a power supply that these use. It may have gone out like many PC's bad displays. I think it is due for replacement or an operation if you are skilled enough. Might just be an unseated ribbon cable which can be fixed by yourself.
