What is a Portable DVD Player:
- Portable DVD players were created in order to aid the ability to watch DVDs away from home. They were created in 1998. They are practical for on the go use, and many perform secondary functions such as playing music from audio CDs and displaying images from digital cameras or camcorders
- Most PDPs have an LCD or LED screen attached to them. The most common PDP screen size is 7 inches (18 cm), although some are as large as 10 to 12 inches (25 to 30 cm). Some have swivel-screens that rotate 180 degrees & fold flat. Portable DVD players generally connections for additional screens and a car lighter plug
- Some PDPs now have iPod docks, USB and SD Card slots built in. Some can play videos in other formats such as MP4, DivX, JPEG and PNG either from CD's, flash memory cards or external hard disks. Also some DVD players include a USB video recorder
- Wireless connections (bluetooth and/or wifi) are useful to wirelessly manage (play/record) content from or to other devices (i.e. cell phones)
- A growing complaint among PDP users is that the closer you get to a PDP's screen, the worse the image becomes, this is because the current industry standard for built-in LCD resolution on PDP's is usually only 480x234. The highest built-in LCD screen res. offered on current "high-end" players is still only 800x480
A DVD player has to complete these tasks:
- Read a DVD disc in ISO - UDF version 1.02 format
- optionally decrypt the data with either CSS and/or Macrovision
- read and obey the DVD's Regional lockout codes and display a warning if the player is not authorised to play the DVD
- decode the MPEG-2 video stream with a maximum of 10 Mbit/s (peak) or 8 Mbit/s (continuous)
- decode sound in MP2, PCM or AC-3 format and output (with optional AC-3 to stereo downmixing) on stereo connector, optical or electric digital connector
- output a video signal, either an analog one (in NTSC, PAL or SECAM format) on the composite, S-Video, SCART, or component video connectors, or a digital one on the DVI or HDMI connectors

How to Hook Up A Blu-Ray Disc Player To Your TV:
- To enjoy your Blu-Ray Disc Player to the fullest, your TV should be Hi Definition 1080P capable, though lower resolution capable TV's will work as well with the player. Your Blu-Ray Disc Player will also play DVD's as well.
- The simplest way to hook up your Blu-Ray Disc Player to your TV is to use an HDMI cable, which carries both video and audio over the same cable. Using this type of cable reduces the amount of cable clutter behind your TV as well. You will need to verify that your TV has an HDMI Input on the back of it in order to use that type of cable. If it does not have an HDMI Input on the back, the next best selection would be to use a Component Video (Y/Pb/Pr) cable, however you'll also still need to use a separate cable to carry the audio signal as well if you go this route. You'll need to verify that your TV has an unused Component Video Input connection on the back, as well as an input for the audio.
- Once you have selected a connection method to hook up your Blu-Ray player to your TV, and have made the connections from the output on the Blu-Ray player to the input(s) on your TV, plug in the player, and you're ready to start enjoying Hi Def 1080P (if your TV is capable of that resolution output) movies!
Portable DVD Players Buying Guide:
- You should carefully consider if you'll be primarily using your portable DVD player as a carry-along device or a car player. If want the former, then pick a laptop-style portable DVD player that would rest comfortably on your, well, lap
- If your goal is a portable DVD player that serves as a car player, then get one designed for vehicular use. Most of these come with two screens that can be installed behind the headrest of the front seats so passengers in the back can comfortably watch the same movie. Ideally, you'll want both screens to have earphone jacks as well for greater flexibility
DON'T FORGET THE 'TWEENER':
- Speaking of flexibility, some "regular" players also come with mounting straps for car use. These are great for folks who want to buy a portable DVD player that they would mostly carry around but still want the option of being able to mount it inside a vehicle should the need arise. Just make sure you strap them properly. You don't want your reasonably-priced-to-mighty-pricey investment crashing on the floor or hitting some poor passenger in the back
DIMENSIONS OF COMPATIBILITY:
- Are you planning on using your portable DVD player as a device that you can carry around from room-to-room at home? Maybe you just need sanity insurance during the occasional family gathering in case the relatives start talking about the horrors inflicted by your evil aunt? If so, you can go with one of the bulkier ones with a bigger screen and enjoy the larger, face-shielding viewing experience that comes with it
WHAT IF I FLY A LOT?
- If you want a frequent flying companion, however, then you may want to consider going for a smaller player. Not only does weight easily add up when you're cramming stuff into your carry on, you also don't want to be fiddling around with a honking-huge player when you're taking off your shoes and emptying your pockets as other passengers give you the evil stare while going through airport security
- Do you, er, I mean "your mom," love watching Korean or Asian dramas? Then you'll likely want a portable DVD player that can play video CDs. Maybe you like watching Japanese anime that you've downloaded from the Web? Then perhaps you'll want a player that plays DIVX or AVI files (unless your files are primarily formatted in MKV, which is admittedly a bit of a challenge to find a portable DVD player for). Newer players that can play Blu-ray discs are also starting to pop up. Some players can even play non-video content such as MP3s or JPEG photos if you want something that doubles as a media player
DOES IT HAVE THE JUICE?
- As with any portable device, battery life is a prime consideration. After all, there's nothing more horrible than running out of juice just as your favorite beach volleyball scene with the lowered nets from Top Gun gloriously plays on your portable DVD player's screen
- Ideally, you'll want a device with a battery life of at least 3.5 hours to 4 hours so you can watch two regular-length flicks or one of those extended cuts of the Lord of the Rings movies. Well, that or being able to rewind and rewatch the Top Gun volleyball scene with Tom Cruise over and over and over and over....
- Portable DVD players aren't just about taking your movies on the go. Sometimes, it's also nice to have the option to connect it to your television at home?
- If you like that capability, make sure you get a portable DVD player with audio-video connectors that plug into any standard television. Devices such as Panasonic's DMP-B15 Blu-ray player even have an HDMI port that allows you to connect it to a high-definition TV?
- For audiophiles, some players also offer surround sound capability
EXTRAS & COST:
- Extra features can go a long way in adding a bit more enjoyment to your portable viewing experience?
- Some players, for example, feature screens that can swivel around for easy viewing, fold into a tabletlike shape, or even stand up like a picture frame. Others throw in YouTube access via wireless connectivity?
- As far as cost goes, the good news is that portable DVD players are available at pretty much any budget. Naturally, devices with bigger screens and lots of features will come with a higher price tag. But you can also still get some pretty solid devices under $200 if you shop around
How to Fix a DVD Player:
- A dirty laser pickup lens will inhibit the laser inside a DVD player from being able to read a DVD correctly--resulting in video skipping and freezing during play
- To correct this common problem, clean the laser pickup lens. No disassembly of the DVD player is necessary, nor do you need any tools
- All you need is a laser-lens cleaning disc to remove the dirt and dust that has deposited on the laser pickup lens
- The procedure cannot harm the DVD's laser in any way, although it will not correct for any electronic problems that might have developed, which may require a trip to a service center
- Remove the laser-lens cleaning disc -- many brands are available, including Memorex -- from its protective jewel case. Turn the disc over so that the shiny side is facing up.
- Apply a few drops of the lens cleaning solution included with the laser-lens cleaning disc onto the shiny side of the disc. Start at the top edge of the disc's center hole and apply drops while rotating the disc clockwise until you reach the starting point.
- Turn the laser-lens cleaning disc over. Eject the disc tray of the DVD player. Place the laser-lens cleaning disc on the disc tray. Close the disc tray
- Press the "Play" button on the DVD player's remote control. Count up to 20 seconds. Press "Stop."
- Eject the disc tray and remove the laser-lens cleaning disc. Reapply the lens-cleaning solution in the same manner as in Step 2 and repeat the procedure. Put the laser-lens cleaning disc back into its jewel case when finished
Tips & Warnings:
- A DVD player that refuses to play a DVD correctly might have a defective laser
- This can be fixed only by having the laser replaced by a service center, due to the complexity involved
- Opening the DVD player for any purpose whatsoever voids any warranty that is in effect
