Portable dvd player dropped now has sound and faint picture

I usually prefer to fix things but here unless this is a very expensive unit let it go, it did enough damage to cause image issues and a screen hinge broken, if it can be repaired it will always be prone to some collateral issues that may show up later, like a small car in a accident, no matter how good the repair place is it will never be quite the same.

I recently purchased a portable DVD player and there is no manual to explain how to work the buttons on it . . . the arrows, the square and the circular control. Can you help me with this?

If you mean that the buttons do not work, then look at the controls on the side of the DVD palayer. There is usually one marked 'HOLD' which cause the buttons to be locked against accidental use. Try moving this to the OFF position.

After loading it says to after loading it says to check disc

Considering its a portable Its hopefully a dirty laser. You can use a q-tip with alcohol to gently clean the lens. with the lid open you will see a little clear plastic lens. It clouds up over time. If thats not it then the laser has failed and would not be cost effective to repair.. Cleaning it means just rubbing the qtip over the lens just a couple or so times.

Your three yr old has not shut you down. Open the lid of the player and make sure that the lens still slides backward and forward. If this is so, get yourself a clean cotton swab dipped in either methylated spirits or rubbing alcohol, and thoroughly wipe lens in circular motions. Few seconds to dry and you should be ok.
