I turned my off and let it reset itself

I hope that you have found the codes by now, but if not, here are the codes we have, and also the steps to program that remote.

1. Hold down the clear AUX button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the DVD on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

685 is the only code we have for this brand.

first, check the buttons on the remote control, look out for pal/ntsc. If you don't find such on your remote control, then the only solution to this problem is as follows:

Disconnect the player from your TV, connect it to another TV and it should certainly have a picture. Go to setup, change it back to ntsc.

The present TV the player is connected to is not compatible with PAL. So the next available TV might be Pal enabled and it can be changed to ntsc in order to work with your TV again.

I hope you understand the above. If you don't, please let me know.

Se puede grabar en formato PAL o en NTSC - depende de lo que configuras por el menu.

Hi Catherine - There are two possible reasons for this:

The first is that some DVD readers have a difficult time with some "home made" DVD discs, sometimes having problems with certain brands of media.

I think more likely in this case is that you are not FINALIZING the disc after recording it.

From the unit's user manual are the instructions for this:


Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya

I found the manual for the SpectronIQ PD-DVR100 available at Retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/SpectronIQ-PD-DVR100-DVD-Players-manual/id/926dj289/t/2/ . You will need to answer a query to prove that you are human.

I hope this helps.

This is a common problem with most of the players after few years. More likely this is an issue with either the power board or any of the connections seems to be damaged or broken. Unfortunately, repair is not a wise option as the cost of repair would be more than the value of the product. You could try to disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and see, if that helps. Unless, you need to open the player to check and inspect the cause. More often it is leaked / bulged / swelled caps that you need to replace which is easily available at radioshack or online.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Fixed mine by opening up and replacing ide cable to the DVD burner. Was flashing hello. When opened up and touched the ide cable it would spin up the drive for a second. Its possible it was loose connection to the power plug in the drive but replaced ide cable just in case. Has been working perfect since. Very roomy inside and easy to do.
