My dvd player starts the movie over every time I turn the car on. Previous reviews said it would start back where it stopped. the manuel gives no information on this. Help!

Hi Arlene,

I checked Amazon for this player and looked at the questions and reviews. As luck would have it, I found this:

Q: dvd player: Does the Sylvania SDVD8791 dvd player remember where the movie stopped?

A: No, It's starts the movie over everytime the player is turned off.

So it appears that at least one other person is having the same experience as you are having. At first, I thought if you had it wired wrong it would "forget" but since it is portable and lacks batteries - that wouldn't be the case. For these same reasons, I can't imagine how a player can remember the location on a disk if power is removed from it. In any case, I doubt there is anything wrong with the player, it simply doesn't function as you were erroneously told or as hoped. When in the car, you should probably tell those watching to note the location on the disk before shutting off the car.

The Amazon link I used for my reply can be found here:

Good luck!

I need warranty for portable dvd player from walmar

As far as I can tell this product hasn't been sold in years. If you bought it new and recently ask Walmart for warranty info. It would have had a 90 day or 1 year warranty when new.

My DVD player will play some DVDs but not others. I have no idea how it picks and chooses, but it is frustrating. Someone said they thought the lazer may need replacing. If this is true, how would I go...

Good day! in some reasons dvd player will not play other dvd's.
1. The dvd player you have is not multi region meaning it will not read dvd,s coming from other country. or the dvd's you played is unsupported format of your player.
2. The the spindle motor is malfunctioning, this is the one that rotates the dvd's you played. here in the philippines we tend to replace that one. but most of the time it is sold as a lens assembly. witch includes the spindle motor, lens assembly, and ribbon wire. if that is the case most of the possible parts that would be deffective are already address. try to look in the e bay for parts. i hope i have help you in some way.

Blank Screen

I don't know if you ever got an answer or not, but we have this same unit and also had this problem. (now we have a different problem) Anyway, there is a small button on the mail base that I think is on the upper right. When the screen is closed the button is compressed, when the screen is opened it should fully pop out, but ours did not. It appeared to be, but if you pressed it in, it would fully pop out and the screen would work. Sometimes we had to do this several times during a trip. For some reason it would not stay fully popped out? We had already taken the exact same DVD player back to Target because of this same problem, only to have the second unit do the same. I bought this particular player because I assumed with the "Eddie Bauer" name it would be quality. I was mistaken. Hope you already figured this out. Sincerely, T
