    It does have a switch but that is not turned on. The screen goes black after the loading screen comes on. And I can still hear the sound.

Black screens, set checked everything but can not


The only "kill switch" I am aware of is the switch on the DVD compartment door. I don't have your exact model but, on my model, this switch is activated when the door covering the DVD is closed and deactivated when this door is opened (kills the DVD spin and reading laser). Look for a small square hole in the DVD player deck and a corresponding raised piece of plastic on the DVD door.

Good luck!

Sony dvd player... black square appears


this feature is related to the tv.
The black square is an space reserve for text. Most of broadcasting companies dont use it at all. Now to evoid it you go into menu look for close caption options and make sure to send the TEXT feature to off, Again in the TV MENU. Details and information about this feature is in the user's manual, specially how to turn it off.

Black screen with sound


Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was left the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...

All the best.

Cheers

Some sort of box across the screen


Try to look at your captions on your tv...you probbally have them set on text 1 or 2 which cause the box to pop up also why it goes away when you push a button. Turn all caption functions of your tv off...cc and text this should take care of the problem.

DVD player isn't showing anything


do you hear movement inside like disc rotating, if so then the switch that closest lid is damaged. This is when you fold dvd down it hits this switch to turn monitor off. It could be damaged. If there is no noise or movement then power supply has damaged or batt dead and no power goes to it from power cord.
