Zenith DVP615 backlight problem

Hi,
I have a Zenith DVP615 which when turned on, the screen will display with backlight every once in a while. Almost seems like a back connection somewhere. I have already opened up the unit to unplug and replug cables but the problem remains. DVD video displays just fine when connected to a TV. I figure that it may not be worthwhile repairing the unit. A new unit from eBay would run about $70. Any ideas please?

Charge battery for zenith dvp615


michelle,

not so familiar with this model but try this:

1) Plug your power adaptor to main unit
2) locate "power on" switch and change it to "off"

after doing this steps you will see a red light which means the unit is charging.

note: for some portable player once the charging is complete this red light changes color either orange or green which means the battery already full charge. but it is adviceable to charge battery for atleast 2hrs.

cheers,
mark

Negative picture??


Make and model number? What type of screen? Computer or TV. Are you using composite cables? If so, you may have them crossed over.

RE CHANGING REGIONAL CODE FROM US - AU


Yeah I could not find the manual myself. Email Zenith with details on the problem, ask them:
A reset procedure or a Master Password for the system password, without password you cannot change regional settings.
A copy of the user manual possibly in PDF sent into your Email.

With the master password you change old password and regional settings.

Movie is playing, but will dont display on screen


Try increasing the contrast. If that doesn't work, then make sure your input is on the correct setting. Press the input button and wait for a picture to load (about 5 seconds each) while trying to play a DVD. Also, make sure that the backlight is enabled. If you take it out into the sunlight and you are able to see a faint image of the movie on the screen, then you need to turn your backlight on. Most likely an option in the main menu, but it may also be caused by a broken sensor that senses when the player is closed and turns the backlight off, but also turns it back on when the player is opened.

No picture


It sounds like the backlight in your player may have failed. You will have to take the unit to a qualified technician for repair, because there are no user serviceable parts inside. I wish I could give you better news.
