check if

* might the flex connector/cable is dis-align or got loose contact.

* LCD components (some parts) are curroded and need to be clean

if you do it on your own,take a little care of opening it.

On Top (LCD screen housing) : just use a guitar peak in between the housing

On Bottom (Circuit boat) : unscrew all side and corner of it..(beware of hidden wires and flex connectors.

* using hot air or a hair blower... target the LCD components attach at the back of the screen,maintain the temp cause my burn the screen and assemble it properly and fit each socket.

if you got the same problem... might need a replacement and bring it to a authorized service center...

good luck.

There is a small switch on the right side where all the audio/video ports are. If that switch is forward in the "video-out" mode, the onboard (TFT) screen is shut off. Move the switch back to "TFT" mode. Hope this helps.

Optical lens problem. I assume ure not a pro in repairing it, so send it for repair to local tech. Before u do that, get a lens cleaning kit and clean your optical lens. Usually the optical lens cleaning kit comes with a cd and solution. Use it according to the instruction manual. If still the same, then send it to tech for repair.

The charger=look on side of durabrand where power plug should go.there s/b somethine like [C+] or[ c-]
it is not really the letter C but the symbol of the outer rim of the plug that goes into DVD player.[C+] means that the outer shell of THE PLUG is negative (-) with the INSIDE being positive (+) with respect to a battery. [C-] again, the outer connection is (+) pos., inner connection (-) neg.
Look for power rating, as an EXAMPLE ( 5v at 1.5a [5 volts at 1.5 ampers]

You can trick the player into thinking the cover is closed and still play DVD's.
Open the lid and notice the small button on the top right side. Pressing the button will simulate the "lid down" so the disks will play.
You can even see the cool red laser when there is no disk.

I have the same DVD player and it no longer works. The battery worked just fine a month ago when I used it last, but now the player won't power on. It appears to be a problem with the "on" switch.

Would you like to buy the battery for $10 plus cost of shipping from Georgia??
You can email me at [email protected].

turn on the power and open the dvd axcess door, inside where the dvd goes is a small little push down switch, push this down, it is in the upper right side. this will let you see if the laser is powering up,if you see no red light ,your laser is bad. hope this helps
