Nextar-mp007 portable dvd

I have tried your tips previously posted about the black screen problems and believe it to be the ccf inverter. I was just wondering were i could get a new one to replace it or is there a way to fix the old one.

Appreciate the "Ask Me". I am assuming that you tried the flashlight test.

Fixing the old one would of course require familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM & a soldering iron as well as availability of discrete components (your friendly neighborhood electronics part store may have them in stock). Normal culprits would be dried up, blistered or leaky capacitors. Rarely do the semiconductors break down (switching transistors) in an inverter circuit (but they would also from time to time). Often, it would be a case of cold/open solder and repairs involve is simply re-application of heat with a soldering iron and a dab of soldering lead. In instances where mostly everything checks out OK, it would be a resistor that has opened or gone up in value.

A replacement would be available (easiest to do). Most inverters used by portable DVD players are also used in laptops, GPS, depth/fish finders and other electronic devices that uses LCD display. That being said, the inverter would be manufactured by another company and would have their own part number not necessarily that of the player's manufacturer. Doing a Google for "inverter P/N" where P/N is the part number and you might be lucky.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The inverter board which provides the backlite for viewing has died.
This is a portable player, right?

In any event, the cost to repair these things is not really cost effective given the price of new ones. So ...................

Black screen

Two things. Inverter, or CCF tube. The CCF tube in a LCD is equal to a florescent lamp but is usually .05mm thick, and 103mm long and is placed (soldered in) at the base of the LCD screen. The inverted goes out more then the CCF, but it does happen.

The inverter in most notebooks are placed under the LCD like this pictured.
Just below the base of the LCD is the inverter. This is a Gateway Notebook showing the location of the Inverter to the LCD. Best thing to do in these cases is to purchase a new inverter from the company who made your notebook as a new screen can cost over $100.

Blank LCD screen


The description "comes on very faint" is indicative that the backlight is not turning on. The backlight as the name implies provide the illumination of the rear panel of the LCD display. It is made on 1 or more CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent lamps) and are powered by an inverter that provides the high frequency high voltage needed for the CCF lamps to work. Since the entire screen is dark and it is highly unlikely that both or all the lamps would go out at the same time, it would highly be likely that the inverter is the culprit being the common denominator to all the lamps.

Should you venture to perform a DIY (do-it-yourself) (with the necessary precautions and safety in mind), look for a board that would have small transformers and have connectors that leads to the CCFLs. They often go bad because of dried up/blistered capacitors, cold solder or a general failure in the electronics.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

This could either be a defective CCF Lamp or the inverter that powers the lamp. In some instances, it could also be a simple case of cold solder/loose connection in the inverter circuitry or the connector to the lamp.
