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.

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.

The home theater system wont read my disc:(


Well from what I have found in trying to get this problem figured out is that it is a common problem with Curtis Home Theatre Systems; not just your model 6041. Here is a POSSIBLE solution:


Q: The screen is blank!
To reset the video output on your DVD, follow these instruction. Connect to standard composite connection (yellow video input on TV and yellow video output on DVD). Remove any DVD's from the unit. Turn the unit off, wait 10 seconds and then turn it on again. Using the remote, press SETUP, then RIGHT ARROW button 4 times. Press Enter. Then DOWN ARROW button 3 times. Press Enter.
That is for your 6041. For what I have discovered elsewhere it may or may Not cure the problem. Give it a try and let me know one way or the other.

Oh, here is a link to the Curtis website Support area: http://www.curtisint.com/support/support.asp?brand=CURTIS .

My dcd is working but cant read file


You must use a writeable DVD to burn files. You need to match your DVD burner to the proper DVD disc. They are not all alike.

Curtis DVD 5091 Home Theatre System


I believe I have the solution....but it depends on your dvd player's zuxilarily capabilities. Do you have a second set of OUTPUT plugs that are colored Red and White on the back of the TV? Do you have a separate Red and White INPUT plugs on the back of the dvd? The TV must use the speakers in the DVD system by pushing the sound OUT. You cannot accomplish this if the dvd is only pluged into the INPUT of the tv.
\Another option is o make sure your DVD player has a "auxilary" or separate input channel on the console or remote.
I have a DVD home theatre system as well, not the same brand, but that shouldn't make a difference . Its a matter of how the sound is received.

Hope that helped.
