I have a Proton PDV-768 dual portable DVD player. The main screen will not play, but the 2nd one does. On the underside of the main unit, there is a connection of some kind that does not go to anything. It is some kind of 4 pin connector, and is just there...I was wondering if that has anything to do with my problem.Any idea what that could be?

Do you have it connected to the correct input on your TV and have that input selected in the "Source" control of the TV? If you're using HDMI cables, be sure they're connected to the correct input on the TV (some have multiple inputs) and you have selected the one you connected to.
If your unit is out of warranty as was mine, I removed the battery, removed all the screws from the bottom side of the player, to gain access to the inside components, and reseated (unplug & re-plug) the LCD Screen's connector to the main system board and corrected the issue.
The only issue I had in doing this was finding all of the screws! You will need to remove all of the rubber pads from the 4 corners of the unit, and also remove the warranty validation sticker that covers one screw. Once all of the screws were removed the bottom lifted off of the unit easily thus providing access to the components inside.
The LCD Screen's connector is what feeds the signal from the player's video output to the the screen. For my unit it was a small white rectangular plug that had several wires attached to it. This plug fits into a receptacle on the main system board.
I guess with all of the movement of the screen that this unit provides the connection had worked lose over time.
open dvd and look at the capasitors on mains power board and if any have raised tops replace them with same value e.g (2000mf 10v)
capasitors look like little battries with white line on side
The first and foremost thing is that you verify that your dvd recorder is compatible with DVD+R discs and not just DVD-R.. This can cause the problem's you are having with it, you can check the manual to see what media types it accepts.

Check to see if the little button that the screen closes down on (which turns off the screen and only the screen) is stuck, or jammed under the little hole that it comes up. This button is about the size of a pin on most DVD Players, and is located very close to the screen on either side.
There is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds (some solutions say 20 seconds).
