Question about GoVideo DP7240 Portable DVD Player with Screen
I have a Go Video DP7240 and initially it worked fine. I connected it to a 13" tv that I have with the rca cables in the front of the tv to view some dvds on a larger screen. The picture initially showed on both the tv and dvd player, but then went out on the dvd player, but continued to show on the tv. when I tried to go back to use the portable in the car, the picture would show for 10 sec (I would get thru the loading screen, then it would show dvd) then it would go black. when I push the lcd button on the remote, it flashes the pic for about 5 secnds then goes black again. Also, I can now only hear thru the head phones. I can no longer hear thru the speakers on the player. HELP!!!
it sounds like your remote has got damp or over time the dust builds up behind the buttons you should be able to take the controll apert and remove the buttons check the pads are clean and not greasy then wipe over the board with some clean cotton cloth where the buttons pads press on to activate usually its just a bit of grease but check their is no button jammed it sounds like this could be the case as you get a different response to pressing the play button so try this first then if dont work still clean the buttons and pads be carefull not to dammage the pads they should come out all together and have little black pads stuck to them make sure their xlean and grease free if this still dont work then you can get but make sure its not one of the cheaper ones a all in one remote this should solve your problem hope this helps

I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".
Hope this helps.

You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

As far as I know, my Go Video machine when there was no box involved...
The cable came from the wall to the IN of the Go Video box. Then another cable coming from the OUT of the video box and to the IN to the TV. TV should be on channel 3. As far as I can remember, I don't need to push the TV/VCR button, but instead, have to channel down to below channel 2 on the TV to the LINE/INPUT selection. Once you go there, and the Go-Video machine is on, you should be able to see a clear picture.
You'll push the TV/VCR button if you want to toggle back and forth from the VCR picture to the TV picture (which will be technically blank since it's on the 'line input selection.)
Hope that helps.
