My friend give me hers in frustration for the same problem. Turned out to be that little tiny switch under the lid. Inside, just to the right of th play button, is asmall black needle-looking thing sticking up. It's protected by a little plastic fence. This whole thing is less about 5 mm across. To test it, open the lid, then use a pencil or something to hold down the switch ALL THE WAY, then see if the unit springs to life. If so, then look at the bottom of the lid and find the little bump that presses down on the switch. Find some way to build that up a little bit, maybe a few layers of fingernail polish, or a small felt sticker, or some glue. Once it starts pushing that switch down a little further, the unit will work OK. I ended up using a teeny tiny little screw like the kind that mounts a hard drive in a PC, but I had to drill out a hole for it first. I wouldn't do it that way again. Now if that fixes your problem, let me know exactly what that wide/normal switch does! I can't tell if it actuall keep the correct aspect ratio or if it just stretches the picture. Drop me a line at [email protected] and let me know. Hope that helps you out!

My Magnavox vcr/dvd- dv220mw9 takes the tape then ejects it.


I returned it to Wal-Mart and got another one that I hope acts better. Perhaps if more of our electronic products were made in the U.S., Germany or Japan they'd be more dependable.

Durabrand portable dvd player Model: pdv-722 SERIAL: a7138900199 Charger not working


The company that made these DVD players for Wal Mart has gone out of business in November. Wal Mart is exchanging them for a player of equal or lesser value.

You could check Radio Shack to see if there is an ac adaptor that will work with your player as well.

Durabrand DVD-1002 burned up


Wal-Mart recalls 1.5 million Durabrand DVD playershttp://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090820/ap_on_go_ot/us_recall_dvd_players

WASHINGTON – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 1.5 million Durabrand DVD players after the company said it received five reports of the products overheating, leading to fires and property damage.
No injuries have been reported, the company said.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday announced the recall of the Durabrand DVD players, which were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from January 2006 through July 2009.
The agency said it didn't immediately have the details of the property damage amounts.
The DVD players, made in China and imported by Wal-Mart, can overheat, which poses as a fire and burn hazard to consumers. Wal-Mart said it has received 12 reports of the DVD players overheating, including the five reports that resulted in fires.
The recall involves a single DVD player with a remote control. The silver-colored electronic device has a U-shaped opening at the top to insert the DVD.
The safety commission said consumers should stop using the DVD player and return it to Wal-Mart for a refund. Details: by phone at 800-925-6278; by Web at http://www.walmartstores.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.
