Hi,

Initially, this would either 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 still gray or blue screen (no video) even in the TV/monitor, then it would be the video interface/circuitry. If the video is displayed, then it would just be the LCD panel display.

If it turns out to be the LCD display, it is very possible that it is a backlighting issue. Most likely, it would be in the inverter and/or CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamps. This is a relatively easy repair by re-soldering. It is perhaps more of a task to open the panel lid/cover of the LCD display.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

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.

If the DVD is connected to the TV properly using the yellow, white & red AV cable and the TV is switched to AV and there is still no picture, plug the yellow lead from the back of the DVD player into the green socket. If you see a black and white picture now the DVD output is on Progressive Scan mode. See user manual to turn off Progressive Scan mode.

Sound but no picture!


I had thesame problem and I took off the battery, disconnected all power to the unit, and then unscrewed all the screws located under each grey circle as well as the one under the "warranty void if removed' sticker. There I found the ribbon that went to the monitor had been pulled from its place from what appeared to be twisting the screen in the wrong direction. Upon carefully lifting the motherboard I found the slot the ribbon went into, worked it back into the slot, put all back together and it works fine. Good luck!

Daewoo combo - DVD is fine, sound works but not picture appears


The video heads have been clogged. You can try a cleaning tape, but those often do not work. If that fails, you will need to have a professional clean the heads and verify the head alignment. This should not cost more than $50 or so.

DVD Player Stuck In Progressive Scan Mode


A simple solution that works with electronic items many times, so give it a try. Turn Off your player, un-plug the electrical supply, wait about 2 minutes then re-connect the electricity and turn on the player. Many times this will force the machine to reset itself. This technique can be used for ALL electroinc devices.
