Recently the sound has been cutting out and the dvd player returns to standby.Sometimes i can turn it sraight back on other times ill just hear a crack and it will stay in standby.Seems to be completely random but never lasts more than a couple of hours without cutting out.Ive narrowed the problem down to the amplifier but that seems to be ok no dry joints,ive even replaced a couple of capacitors on it but still no joy.Im just about ready to give up
Any help greatly appreciated

Re: Sound Cutting Out
If you looked for dry connections and found none, there is probably a componet that is intermittant, and these can be tough puppies to troubleshoot, without monitoring the power supply voltages and sittinfg with the unit.

open up your dash get 1 short RCA cable (red and white) male ends on them
now place the red and white RCA into the back of DVD in-dash player next step the aftermarket CD player should have 2 rca plugs that say aux put the other end red and white RCA cable that you just put into DVD unit into the aux inputs on back of CD player when this is done reinstall both units back into the dash now on your CD player press the source button till aux appears once this is done you will hear the DVD player sound...........now if you press the source button and no aux appears......hold down the source button till the CD player powers off...........once CD player is off hold down the F (function) button till beep or unit turns on a display use the skip buttons or F (function) button to go threw features once you get to aux turn aux to on now hold the source button down again till unit powers on normally once this is done press source button again till you find aux........if you get sound and the TV doesn't work let me know and ill guide you to get that running too (if there are no aux RCA plugs on the back of CD player) let me know (sometimes there is a headphone looking plug on back of CD units) if what i told you doesn't work let me know the brand of CD player you have so i can give you correct setups I'm only going by your in-dash DVD player right now

test the capacitor with a meter to make sure it has the value stated on it. the work on this unit is quickly exceeding its present value, most likely. consider upgrading to a higher resolution unit if the fix is more expensive in parts and time than a new unit costs. good luck mark
Sometimes the standby factory setup (electronically) should be unplugged. In most types of dvd players and other players it's the main problem. It should be taken to a repair tech and fixit, anyway this could not be absolute could be especifically in the power management circuitry. Some times power peaks and other anomalies could kill the standby feature nad reset on and on your dvd.
do you see the laser light come on when the disk spins if not it has probably lost power or failed, if so sometimes the laser head gets moved to close to the drive mechanism and the motor cant pull it out. i have found several of these that had this problem.
