A car without a sound system is hard to find these days, especially since the journeys have become longer and people have become more accustomed to listening to music on the way. And nowadays, even simple music doesn’t please the people who are travelling, especially when they are with family. DVD players car have successfully solved this issue of boredom, and nowadays, almost all of the families in the US or any other country of this world have a DVD players car.
The solution to this problem was introduced way back in the late 90s with the introduction of the DVD players car, since the availability of the option of playing a 4.7 GB disc inside the car. This option made it possible for high quality movies to be played inside. Although a CD could perform such a task in a lower quality due to its smaller size, it could not compete with DVD because a DVD is much more durable than a CD. Hence, people immediately switched to the DVD player when it came out for cars because now the DVDs that they owned did not corrupt due to scratches like a CD did.
Although these advantages are associated with DVD players car, it still is a machine. And just like any machine, it gets broken. So how to repair it? Well, if you have some prior knowledge of DVD players or want to experiment yourself and try to fix it, then there are some basic tools that you will need. For starters, you will need to know what the problem is, which is quite hard to do as you are not an expert and don’t know about the DVD player system. Also, there are many components of the DVD system such as the car video monitor, and the sound system which might be broken and not the DVD player itself. So a good diagnostic is necessary before you do anything with the DVD system. What you should then do is check if all the plugs are properly connected to the player, and also ensure that there is no interference with the power. If that doesn't solve the problem, then take out the DVD player, open it up until the lens is visible, take a soft cloth that is clean, and gently rub it on the lens to clean it up since there might be dust on the lens that’s causing the entire problem. If you have canned air, then that would be better than the cloth, and you should use that to remove the dust of off the lens and wherever it is in the entire DVD player. Put it back now with the help of a screwdriver and check if that solves the problem as, in most cases, it will.
