Question about Televison & Video
We have a new portable DVD player from Digital labs. Hardly used. It plays movies, put after about 5 minutes, the "loading" screens comes on and the movie starts from the beginning. The movie will play for about 5 minutes again, and again the "reload" screen comes on. This happens whether you are using the AC adapter, the battery pack or plugged into the car outlet. Digital Labs K725 Portable DVD player
I have a K715 that was having the same problem. The "line select" had been switched from "in" instead of "out". Once I switched it back to "out", the player worked normal.

I had the same problems from this product! PERSISTANCE is the key!!
I tried to call the tech support numbers that the other people here had suggested, all I got was a recording that wanted me to leave my info and theyd "contact me in "0 to 2 business days".
Sorry, Im quite impatient .... had to keep fiddling with it myself, till someone calls me back. Hell, if I break it, it was already broke, right? lol
THE SOLUTION is to clean the lense! I stuck one of those disc cleaner discs in and shortly after, it started working just fine. Mind you, Ive spent at least an hour popping disc after disc, in .... thinking it was a problem with HOW a DISC played/read. I truely believe the player just needs to be cleaned of dust.
I suggest giving the device to a responsible child in your household, to mess with/attempt this (as MY mother did). She got this Portable DVD Player for X-mas and when it arrived from Ebay, she waited 2 months before seeing if it even worked. She was quite disappointed to find that "it was ****" and shed waisted her money. She gave it to me to try and fix, with no luck. So she tried numerous times to toss it out .... me, being a pack rat, holding onto it for 7 months, found I had nothing else to do today, remembering I had this thing, decided to give it another try. About an hour of persistance, its working perfectly fine, like brand new.
PUT A DVD CLEANER DISC IN AND SEE IF THAT FIXES THE PROBLEM, continue to try and play discs a few more times. If not, Im sorry I couldnt help ... but I tried. AND I promise, this did it for me.

My wife & I have a model k725 that had failed to start. We tried re-charging the battery until the l.e.d. went from red to green, then started the unit. The player would only start for a moment, then the red indicator on the player would lite, and shut down. After recharging the battery for overnight again, I tried once more and "snapped" the movie down firmly. The unit has since played on demand, so I'm at a loss of what was happening. If you're looking for help, in the owner's manual is a tech hotline. Starlite Consumer Electronics, @ 800-321-5976 or 612-344-4700. Also www.griffininternational.com is listed as the distributor for the U.S. Best of luck with your player. Gene

I tried cleaning, recharging, plugging in, and unplugging. When the disc is loading (as this is all the machine will do), sometimes open flashes on the screen. Does this happen to anyone else? Perhaps this is why it keeps loading and slowing repeatedly. Anyone have any other ideas? Also, I went through a few numbers before getting the office I needed to deal with the problem. The number is 866-387-2027.

Response to Solution #4
You have listed Griffin International website as being a distributor for these DVD players. I work for this company and you have posted the wrong link, our company has nothing to do with these DVD players. I have received several calls about them and was trying to find where this was coming from. So the above link to Griffin International is in no way connected with Starlite DVD players.

Yea I had this problem where i kept putting my dvd into the player, and I kept getting a red light at the base and a blue screen. To fix it you hav to turn the line select from in to out

If it is plugged in, unplug it. If not, try plugging it in... It has worked for me before. Also, if its brand new, I'd look at your warranty.

I finally threw it out and bought a new one. It will not work, I took it in to be looked at, you are going to pay more to fix it then to get a new one.
