AS long as its a newer SD card you will be fine. Stick with name brands like Kingston, Samsung HP etc. Stay way from cheaper cards as they wont work as well.

On one or both? Take a flash light and look close at the screen while playing something. If you can see the picture on the screens then it is a back light problem. They are not easy to repair.

Of course you can, or go to your local electronics supply store and see if they have one that will work.

Replace the strip wire that connects laser pickup unit to main baord at first. If do not help, repalce the laser pickup unit.

Remove the main battery and power on, if no! check power supply that it puts out the correct voltage, if okay! the main board would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace.

I would open it up and use some alcohol on a qtip and clean the laser. Small piece of round glass under the disc

If that doesn't work I would replace it, most likely coincidence on it breaking although you can't rule out being dropped or similar. However your dvd player parts are hard to get and rarely worth the time to fix they have gotten so cheap.. Thanks!

  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

Try a reset to this TV and check. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

It's the fuse in the electric engine. You can bypass this fuse by cutting it off and then you just connect the two ends together, wrap with electrical tape. It'll work, that's what I did to mine. Works great again

Did you finalize the DVD before you removed it from the VCR/DVD recorder? Until a disc is finalized, it won't work on another device. If you left some space, try to finalize it now. Does the disc play when in that Sylvania unit? It is possible that the unit is faulty and didn't focus the laser properly for writing to the DVD. (If you actually tried to burn to a CD and not a DVD-R, then no data was written to the disc. There are slight differences to the laser settings for CDs and DVDs.)

I hope this helps.
