Updating firmware on stand alone divx player
Can anyone guess at what might cause this to occur? Reply: Been acting up since roughly 9/2012Is it still under warranty? Most likely component in these cheap DVD players is the power supply.My thoughts are a bad HDMI port on the dvd and/or a hardware issue that is causing the random shutoffs. Shutting down on it's own would indicate some form of hardware issue. When they called the IT guy, his reply was you guys just got that DVD player and hasn't acted since. Reply: not worth repairing I know The checksum error would indicate a firmware or mainboard issue. Was hoping it might correct the issue if it was perhaps a copyright thingie.Most likely component in these cheap DVD players is the power supply. Not sure if the check sum fail was there beforehand or not though.The checksum error would indicate a firmware or mainboard issue. Reply: Funny thing is I fiddled around with the player after updating the firmware and after it shutting off a few times it stayed on through a full length movie.I have a DVD player (named in subject) that will play a movie for about 10-20 minutes then shut off for no apparent reason.It has also given a fuzzy picture as well after some minutes of play.I thought it might help to upgrade firmware which I did.
The checksum error would have nothing to do with "copyright" issues.
You would get an actual error like "format not supported" or now error at all, but it just wouldn't play.
The error, usually seen at boot up only, would indicate a problem when reading the firmware during bootup.
This can be caused by faulty firmware, any number of components on the mainboard, or the power supply.
In short, because of that error alone, I'd simply replace the unit.
