Ok, here's the deal...

My In dash DVD player has packed in...

Its a single DIN DVD/VCD/MP3 player. Cheap crap I bought in the states (Made by Lanzar), but does the job.

I am pretty sure the problem is the ribbon cable that runs from the fascia into the unit itself.

It has a fold down/flip fascia and I reckon its just crap build quality and the cable has gotten fcuked up over time.

Anyone on here any good at repairing these things?

Driving me mental not being able to watch music videos or porn in the car!

:D

stuff these days is just made to be thrown away when it breaks, doesnt stop me opening things up when they break to see why tho:D

you might be able to solder a new ribbon cable in but how long will that take!

until you get it sorted you might have to memorise the porn before you go for a drive

Opened it up already....... Bit of a bad habit of mine.

To get at where the ribbon attatches inside the unit itself requires stripping out the whole motor unit etc etc, quite a job and certainly not one I wish to undertake!


:D

Pass. If it is a fly cable she could make another one but if it is down to deconstructing I would think she would be better doing the washing up

Bugger! Cheers anyway.... The front panel attatchment is easy enough to get at, but to get to the internal connection involves removal of the enitre innards of the head unit, and there are a lot of innards. Loads wee screws, circuit boards, wires and crap.
