AS long as its a newer SD card you will be fine. Stick with name brands like Kingston, Samsung HP etc. Stay way from cheaper cards as they wont work as well.

On one or both? Take a flash light and look close at the screen while playing something. If you can see the picture on the screens then it is a back light problem. They are not easy to repair.

Of course you can, or go to your local electronics supply store and see if they have one that will work.

Replace the strip wire that connects laser pickup unit to main baord at first. If do not help, repalce the laser pickup unit.

Remove the main battery and power on, if no! check power supply that it puts out the correct voltage, if okay! the main board would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace.

I would open it up and use some alcohol on a qtip and clean the laser. Small piece of round glass under the disc

If that doesn't work I would replace it, most likely coincidence on it breaking although you can't rule out being dropped or similar. However your dvd player parts are hard to get and rarely worth the time to fix they have gotten so cheap.. Thanks!

  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

To keep it short, that is the way most tvs are wired nowadays, so you are out of luck. You are limited even on Bluetooth connections to only two headphone sets. There are some ways around it though if your tv sound output is going to a decent receiver with its own speakers.

use the buttons on the TV set. Thats what they are there for. Also, you can buy a universal remote and program it for your TV.

only if they use the same system
PAL (European)
NTSC North American.

UK uses PAL, Canada uses NTSC

So to answer your question: No it will not work.
