Disconnect whatever's connected to the blue wire behind the unit, and re-connect it to the blue/white wire instead.

I have a question. Everything is working perfectly except for there is no picture on the TV nor DVD. It was working fine until the other day when I messed around with some wires seeing if any of them were loose. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: power won't stay on, can't get dvd out

One of the motors in the mechanism died making a near short circuit. When the DVD tries to energize the motor, a lot of current passes through the circuits making the PSU protection to shut down the power supply to avoid damage or fire.
To get the movie out, you'll have to disassemble the DVD player and remove the disk. After that the DVD will be unusable because of the failing motor. The replacement often is more expensive than buying a new Chinese DVD player.

ok you have two possible problems one is the remote wire comeing from the brain is hooked up wrong use the second remote wire to the remote hook up for your amp the one you have hooked up is for the power antena if you had one thats why it works when you have the radio on.
ok now the second problem is with your zone cotrole sound like to be on try playing with your audio controls.
or at the very bottom of the screen is about 3or 4 buttons use those to change through the other options while the screen is up .

It won't play for one of two reasons:
1. There is something inside the DVD player, which keeps it from playing.
2. The DVD player's battery has run out of juice and can no longer play, meaning the player needs to be replaced.

Magnavox portable dvd mdp1810a - no picture

I have this player. It's sensitive to power fluctuations. If the power isn't steady, the picture goes out. You don't need to shut the lid, just quickly press the tiny plastic pin near the hinge under the screen. It does the same thing as closing and opening the lid would do. Not sure this will solve it, but I found that to help. By the way, I broke the car charger for mine and am looking to buy one. If you ditch your player, let me know.

DVD player froze, now only turns off

Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
