Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

5 Answers

The unit displays only a random bunch of horizontal lines. It used to do this after playing nicely for about 10 minutes or so, but now it starts off with a screen full of lines, as though it's reading a lot of digital data. The device is a 7 inch portable DVD player, made by Protron. Model PDV 228. The lines keep filling the screen even after the disc has been removed, which tells me it's not the disc, but in the player itself.

    You say the problem is in the screen, I don't
    know about that, because yhe unit will play ok
    for about 20 minutes before it starts acting up
    again.
    Te unit is 3 years old, so it's out of warranty
    so your solution is bogus.

    Thank you, guys !
    I followed your suggestion about using a separate
    monitor, and it showed me that it was truly the
    LCD that was at fault.
    Now I can rest easy, knowing that it isn't in the
    interface area, so I'll just look for another LCD,
    or just junk it. Thank you especially, Benimur!

You need to give DVD player for service as the unit as the hardware problem, this usually happens when there is crack in the ribbon cable of the player which where the data is sent ..........




Good luck....

If you can open the DVD Player and try to re-seat(unplug and replug) the wires(cabel) for the display
check the lense of the players if it is blue or it is white as the issue could be with the lense as it has gone bad

if you cannot do this get a technician and he can check these for you may be you need a new lense that reads the DVD ot the display may be you can just get it resolved by re-seating the cable

I think it is a problem of the screen of the DVD player .

When it get heat some of the electronic item in the circuit board get loos connection ( I C or any other electronic item in the circuit board )

So the best thing is go to the electrician and check it.

Hi,

Initially, this would be a defective LCD panel or its interface. A way to verify is to play the portable DVD using an external video monitor such as your TV. If the lines are stll shown even in the TV/monitor, then it would be the video interface/circuitry. If the lines are gone, then it would just be the LCD panel display.

Though this is a simple repair job, the troublesome part would be looking for a replacement part and disassembling the unit. There are no soldering works required but one or two connectors only.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Yes this can be a problem with the player itself most likely with the screen part of the player that may need to be repair,, if its still under warranty you can contact the manufacturer for repair or for replacement....

Good luck......

How to reset to factory conditions without a remote a panasonic SAHT74


While stopped and "DVD/CD" is the source, press and hold [STOP] on the main unit and [>10] on the remote control until "INITIALIZED" disappears from the TV. Turn the unit off and on again. All settings will return to the default values. (This does not work during program and random modes, or when setup menu or START menu is displayed.)

Horizontal lines on screen.


Your unit may have a loose connection from motherboard to the display (video cable inside the unit), another distinct possibility is that the video processor chip is damaged or there is a power supply problem for the video chip (a bad electrolytic cap or similar somewhere around the video IC).
You can check the connection, but you'll need to take the unit apart, also check other connectors, but if it's an IC problem, this could get difficult or/and costly.

Please note that these are only suggestions and that the problem may as well be something else.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...


Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

SONY SLV-350P DVD PLAYER/VCR COMBO


I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.

You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.
