Re: 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.

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 .
From Curtis' website: "Q: Where can I purchase a replacement DVD battery? Replacement portable DVD batteries can be purchased for $30 from Curtis International Ltd. Please mail a certified check or money order (payable to Curtis International Ltd) to 315 Attwell Drive, Etobicoke, Ontario M9W 5C1, ATTN: Customer Service Department. Make sure to include your name, complete mailing address, phone number with area code, model number of your unit and part required. "
Weigh you options....a new portable DVD player can be bought for not much more.
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.
