Venturer Digital Photo Frame DPF811SE

I bought this as a gift for my mother in law - she has since given it back because it is not working. THe screen is completely blank - I suspect it is not getting power. Is there a way to test it before I spend the money ordering/finding a new ac cord?

    Same problem, bypassed the burnt out input resistor in the ' wall wart' = It's been good ever since!

    I also have a Venturer DPF811SE, screen went blank while running, I have tested the cord/power supply & do not have the 9VDC required to run the unit. I do not know where to get replacement parts for this unit.

    I have the same moel and it just went out- blank screen -after I unplugged and plugged it back in. What is the "wall wart" amd how did you bypass it?

    I also have a DPF811SE that went out. After plugging in from moving it, the screen no longer comes on. How did you bypass the burnt out resistor and what is the "wall wart?" This was from my husband's daughter and she will be very upset to see it is not working!

SOURCE: help with venturer pvs6100w

i had the same problem. there is a switch that gets pushed down and there is something sticking on the back of the screen. i put layers of tape on it to build it up to push it down further to fix it. can also try to stick something where the switch is but you will need to turn it off to switch discs. if you really know what you are doing you can try and take it apart and try and fix it right.

All photo editing must be done on the computer before transferring the pictures. The frame will only display your images, not edit them.

Downloading from pc to digital photo frame


1. I don't think the USB Cable was given to Download Photos from the computer - I think it was given to upload photos to the Computer.

2. The manufacturer has either gave you the wrong cable for a different type of Operating system or you are trying to put it in the wrong port.


1. Call a Technical Support Line (Probably found on back of instruction booklet.)


2. Send the Product back to the company.
