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?

    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.

Is there a firmware updates for dff 1002(Digital photo frame)

Unlikely this is a first or second generation Digital Photo Frame. Also typically digital photo frames don't get firmware updates, unless they're third party hacks.

I lost the directions for my venturer digital photo frame and forget how to configure it. The menu button is no help. I'm trying to change the viewing interval from 5 to 30 sec but none of the indicated...

Go to a retailer where they sell this Brand of Photo frame and be polite to the clerk or Manager and ask if they could PLEASE make you a copy of the instructions. You might want to offer them a couple of bucks for doing you the favor. If they tell you No, then ask for the phone # or web address off of the instructions or box so that you can contact the manufacturer and either get a new set of instructions mailed/faxed to you. You may need the instructions for another problem later down the road, so it would be WORTH it. Does that sound reasonable to you to have the complete instructions, rather than just knowing how to fix this one viewing problem. I would
definitely NEED the entire instructions, myself. Hopefully the manager of the store will take mercy on you and make you a copy. I have a good feeling
about this. If they are busy, be patient. It's a virtue.
Wait until someone is free of other customers. Let me know how you did OK. Best of Luck to You!!!

Was given digital picture frame . have no cd manual. haS 22 PICTURES ON IT .CAN I PUT MORE? MODEL NO. 7FF1

It depends on how big the existing pictures are. It has a 14MB internal memory, but it says about 12MB for storage. You can buy memory card to insert into the frame but it will not display internal memory once you insert a new memory card. If you bought a 512MB card, you could put hundreds to thousands of pictures in JPG format. You can hook the frame to your computer or directly to a digital camera. From the computer it takes a few seconds to convert the pictures. The frame will show up on your PC as a mass storage device and you will be able to delete photos as well.

I hope this helps

Sungale digital photo album TD350A

After playing with mine for awhile, I found that you can insert your memory card into the album, click "exit" until you get to the photo icon, click it, then it will give you a choice of "internal memory" or Memory card," click mem card. You can use the right and left arrows to scroll through the photos (time consuming), then when you see one you want to download, hit "OK" to pause it, then click the up arrow, it should say "saving..." hope this helps.

Venturer Portable DVD Player, twin 8" Screens, PVS6988

I manage to get the manual from Venturer. Google it. I am in UK and I have to phone them and than get them to send the manual by pdf to my email address. No charge. Easy.
The older ones are not on their listing.
If you have any problem come back to me and I will look it up for you.

Brand new dvd player just shut off and won't turn on or charge

Your problem is most likly the ac/dc adapter, try your power cord for your car see if that works. if it does then its the adapter. Venturer has had some problems with their chargers.
