Hi,

Sounds like the player itself is OK. The white screen on power on is an indicator that the backlight and the inverter that is powering it is also OK.

A couple of things you can try:
1. If your unit has a video out, hook it up to a TV with Video INput. Normally this is a yellow colored RCA connector. On play and there's video in the TV, then your DVD decoder is OK and the problem is with the interface;
2. On the interface, any of 3 possibilities:
2.1 Converter which performs the Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC) among other things, this is a single IC chip;
2.2 the flexible flat cable; or
2.3 the LCD panel itself.

Of the 3 the only part that you can check without any special tools is the flat cable. It connects the inside of your player to the screen. You have to remove the front panel of the LCD screen and the top panel cover of the player. Once exposed, visually check for any breaks which can be caused by constant opening/closing of the lid. The preferable way to check is with the use of a continuity tester.

Should you not feel comfortable doing the above and/or it checks OK, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician since any further repair would involve electronic circuitry diagnosis, soldering/desoldering and/or component replacement.

In some instances, this problem may be caused by a faulty LCD bias from the power supply. You may have to check the voltages going in to the LCD panel.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a trutech LMD5702RT portable duel screen dvd player the cable is broke that goes in 2nd screen we get sound but no picture. Can I buy just that cable


If its the red white and blue AV cable on both ends yes you can. If its a red white and blue AV on one end and a audio looking jack on the other end you can too. They sell all those cords at Radio shack or most electronic stores.

Can't get signal from drc6309 to video/audio input


I dont have a Solution but I have the same problem with my RCA portable dvd DRC6309. I have connected it to three different tv set and I get no Video but I do get Sound through the tv sets... I have sent an e-mail to RCA costemer support hoping for a solution. If I hear anything back I will post it here...

I bought my RCA DRC6309 about a month or two ago at a Wal-mart supercenter. They no longer sell RCA portable dvd players. That is why I contacted RCA directly.

DVD Player connection to the tv... Theres three different colours on each side (red, white, and yellow) I already got it hooked up to the tv but the problem is that to hook the other end into the DVD...


Red is usually the left channel audio, white the right channel audio, and yellow the video. Look for something to the effect of "audio out" and "video out" on your DVD player.

No Sound when playing a video game on Coby Pertable DVD player


Do you have the audio plugs in the proper spot? The red & white audio plugs from the PS 2 need to be plugged into the audio in jacks on the portable dvd player in order to get sound. Should match up red to red; white to white for sound, yellow to yellow for video. Hope this helps.

No video - just a white screen


So I am guessing you have audio and no video, your monitor has went out. you can check and see if ribbon cable is slightly uplugged, but maybe just a bad monitor. These happen usually from a drop or hard hit to the unit.
