Hi I hope somebody can solve this, It sounds easy but we really try and follow the trouble shooting guide but nothing happen. We bought a Philips portable DVD model DCP750/37. The first time i use it, works really well the after 30 minutes of watching my movie. It turn black and white so i turn it OFF and turn it ON again, so it back to normal. Then the following day i let my son watch his favorite cd after 10 mins of watching, again the same problem as yesterday then the next time we used it, its totally black and white and we follow the trouble shooting guide nothing happen we did not return the product 'coz we are in The Bahamas and we bought it in Florida.

I have had this problem all you do it wobble the screen back and forth until you find the right spot. if that doesnt work. unplug it from the charger assuming it is plugged in. If THAT doesnt work, believe me a little "thwap" on the back will.

Will not turn on.

DVD players are compact complex pieces of circuitry. They're easy enough to manufacturer on an assembly line, but there are so many little components that could break like diodes, chips, or a burned out resistor so unless you have the tools to trouble shoot that level of component there may not be a lot you can do.

Sounds like you have a voltmeter anyway I'm assuming you used to check for power coming into the unit, and you opened it up to check fuses.

Can you see if there is anything coming out of the transformer inside the unit? They don't usually go bad but some component between the transformer and the board could go bad.

As I eluded to above...once you get past the transformer, now you're talking about troubleshooting at the component level which with the tools you have you may not be able to do.

So I would as far the input power which you did, then what's coming out of the transformer. If you see nothing coming out of the transformer then the problem is somewhere between the transformer and input voltage.

If there is something coming out of the transformer probably in the 5V range or lower, then you'll have to trouble shoot components and circuits. At that point you either take it to a repair shop that has the tools (oscilloscopes, circuit testers) to trouble shoot that level of component. OR just go out and buy a new one. The prices on these things has really come down so you may pay more to have the thing repaired.

Good Luck!

I have a flat screen vizio n I'm having trouble

Should be fairly straight forward. Red goes t red White to white and yellow to yellow. You can get an adapter that will plug your cables into one HDMI and this would be a much better way to hook it up. But It is pretty easy to Hook up just following The colors. Look where your hooking it up . And change your remote to that particular Accessory. Hope this helps.

How do I fix my Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-XW380

U99 Hi. This indicates a communication error between the timer and main processor unit. Try unplugging from the wall for a minute or two, and plugging it in again, to reset everything.

Philips portable dvd player (white tab or) wire strip is out

This is a really easy fix. There should be a little black bar that is right about the point that the white tab looks like it should go. The black bar will snap into place or pop up if yours is already snapped down. I took the entire DVD player casing off to re-attach this tab but it could probably be done without that in retrospect. I needed the room to maneuver however. The blue tip will insert just below that black bar and when you've met resistance (which will be rather soon, I could see all of the other color stripes) snap the black bar down. The tab should be held in place and the DVD should read again. Hope that helps!

Hi there,

The disc lock function has been activated on your JVC XV-N320, when in this mode the tray cannot be opened or closed.

If you press the 'eject' button whilst pressing down the 'stop' button on the machine in standby mode the disc lock will deactivate. To turn it back on you follow the same procedure. This is also described in the user manual for this model of TV umder trouble shooting on page 13.

Hope this helps,

Won't power up

if you already tryed to unplug the unit then you did all you can unless you know how to trouble shoot the power supply with a multi-meter. It sounds like what you described to be one of the switched supplys to be defective., Sorry I could assist you more.
