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?

Blue ray player nothing happens when I turn it on

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.

I have a dvd stuck inside the player and when I hit the open button on the player and on the remote nothing happens. The screen on my TV says open but nothing is happening and it doesnt even do that much...

You'll have to take the case off.

Six screws hold the case on. UNPLUG the unit and take the back off. There's no other way but it only takes five minutes.

My view screen onmy sony dvp 820 player went blank even though i can still play cd's

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.

I hope this helps!

Screen is blank

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.

Blank Screen

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).
