This is the 2nd portable DVD player - the first was returned as it didn't work and neither does this one. It will only play certain types of movies - no Dreamworks or other normal brands. The screen goes balck but their is still sound if I can get it to read the disc at all. It is a piece of junk and many times I have almost launched it out my truck window - HELP!
I tried what you suggested,didn't work. I got an email from fixya tried to pay for help but nothing happened. I bought this isn 2004 from Radio shack they won't do anything. $199.00. It never worked right i thought it was me. I bought to cheapo's since and one still works fine the other I threw out. Under $100.00. I don't want to throw this one out. i have everythinghat came with it eventhe box and original receipt.
Hi Mulvey....I see that you have discovered, grasped, and walked into the light regarding this, and all other posts for this 'ahem' brand. So why don't we just convert it to a Region Free player by following the steps below. Please keep in mind that this will not correct all of the problems with this 'ahem' brand, but it will certainly enable greater DVD compatibility. Turn on your player, and using your remote, (i'm assuming that THAT still works) enter the following commands: 1) Menu 2) 1 3) 9 4) Highlight "Region" 5) Enter 6) 0 7) Enter 8) C Please update your post regardless if your results were positive or negative, so we can either continue chipping away, or so that others with similar situations can glean their corrective measures from your post.....good luck my friend
