It's the problem with the LCD screen. That can't be repaired. Better claim your warranty. The LCD screen can be replaced but I suggest you to buy a new unit because the cost of the LCD screen is almost the same with the new portable unit itself.

This is going to be a problem with the video card in the machine. If the machine is new enough to have a usb port, you can try a firmware update from the manufacturer's support site. However, if this unit doesn't have a usb port, then I'm going to have to agree with bbtoast, and say that replacement may be your best option.

    Try the manufacturer for the vidoe card pricing.

This can be a problem with the screen of the portable player, by the way if you have an option to reset the unit try resetting it but if not I suggest you to call Homita for this concern for repair and replacement , this is the number 1-800-726-9493 .

Good luck........

What kind of cords are you using to connect it to the tv?

S-video cords frequently fail. Usually they just stop showing the red color (or show all red only, I forget) but it is possible that all colors failed at once.

Also, if you are using RCA (white, red, and yellow) make sure they are all still connected properly. Try replacing them.

It is always cheaper, easier, and faster to try new cords than take the player in for diagnosis or repair.

If you have extra connections on the TV, try moving the cords. It is also possible that your input has failed.

Hope this helps.

I am sorry to say that your player has a worn itself out. This is one symptom of age.

    The ic board that controls the color portion of the signal is not working. These DVD players are easier to replace than to repair.



    I am sorry!
