You should be getting in touch with the conumer protection, or any government agency in your location that deals with consumer product safety.

This is another reason why for myself I always buy major brand names. At least if there is a problem, there will be easy support.

I need help!!! I'm trying to use this universal remote for my bedroom and I can't figure out how to do the codes for the DVD player ....please help!!!


The manufacturer of your remote has codes for the DVD player that you are using.
If your DVD player is not listed, then you may need to go to your remote's website to get the code ?
Also - if your remote has an auto setup feature - you may be able to let the remote scan for the correct code to work the DVD player.If you bought a no-name remote - you may have trouble finding help with getting the correct code or codes to operate your brand of DVD player

The white piece of plastic attached to the rail so it can move the eye ball reading back and ford is broken. I want to know where can i buy that part? thanks


This is something you'd have to contact the manufacturer for,
Though in all honesty it would be cheaper to just buy another portable player.

Wal-Mart recalls 1.5 million Durabrand DVD playershttp://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090820/ap_on_go_ot/us_recall_dvd_players

WASHINGTON – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 1.5 million Durabrand DVD players after the company said it received five reports of the products overheating, leading to fires and property damage.
No injuries have been reported, the company said.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday announced the recall of the Durabrand DVD players, which were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from January 2006 through July 2009.
The agency said it didn't immediately have the details of the property damage amounts.
The DVD players, made in China and imported by Wal-Mart, can overheat, which poses as a fire and burn hazard to consumers. Wal-Mart said it has received 12 reports of the DVD players overheating, including the five reports that resulted in fires.
The recall involves a single DVD player with a remote control. The silver-colored electronic device has a U-shaped opening at the top to insert the DVD.
The safety commission said consumers should stop using the DVD player and return it to Wal-Mart for a refund. Details: by phone at 800-925-6278; by Web at http://www.walmartstores.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.
