      First of all, I must say that I am completely amazed by how much these portable dvd players have came down, and how much the generael overall quality of them has been raising. I’ve never had such a great portable dvd player, and I’ve had 3 now! The first few I paid around 200 dollars for, and this one was less than 100!

      PORTABLILITY Features a 7″ widescreen for watching all of the movies you want, while on the go! I thought it was crazy how cheap it was, but also the size of the screen and how easy it is to take with me wherever I might want to


      watch movies, television shows, or music videos.

      Anything you can put on a dvd, you can take with you and watch wherever you want! The included Nimh battery can allow the user to watch full-length movies for up to 3 hours at a time, without charging.

      That means I could watch somewhere around 2 of the average-length videos without even having a nearby source of electricity! The battery actually lasts somewhere around 3 hours too, it’s not some sort of over-exaggeration which most battery life-estimations tend to do.

      GREAT SOUND Not only is the display quality of the movies excellent, but the audio quality is great, especially while considering the ...


      • fact that the only speakers installed are very small, unique speakers.

        They put out a lot more power than you would imagine, and are perfect for watching videos by yourself or with a friend or 2 while on a road trip! You can also choose to listen with headphones (standard 1.

        5mm jack) or you can hookup your own stereo-quality speakers into the headphone jack.

        PREFERENCES/EXTRAS You can always customize your movie-watching experience with several different preferences and customizability options.

        There is the aspect ratio selector, language selector, subtitle selector, zoom, and several different play options to make watching movies the funnest and most enjoyable experience possible, while having the ultimate

        option of portability! The player also includes a remote control, just in case you need the extra convenience of not having to get up if you’re watching the TV from a distance, or if you’ve hooked it up to a television, using the player as a normal non-portable dvd player, you can still just use the remote to play, pause, stop, skip scenes, etc.

        OVERALL SATISFACTION Overall, I love the portable dvd player.

        It does just as much as a normal dvd player, and more, and it also is extremely portable and light! I would recommend purchasing this product to anyone interested in watching movies wherever they go, or using the device just like they would a standard dvd player!

    my Digital Labs 7 Dual Screen Portable DVD Player k715-D does not work tells me wrong disc.. please help me

    John says :

    If you’re getting a no disc error message, it means that it’s not properly reading DVDs. It’s like a problem with the laser. You should clean it if you’re able to, but it’ll likely need to be replaced.

    Galega says :

    You are encountering two problems. First, the machine says that there is no disc. It means laser is not able to read it. That can be solved by cleaning the laser. Then, sometimes the player reads the DVD, but still couldn’t play it. It means we can rule out the first possibility. There may not be any issue with the laser. It seems to be an internal technical problem. I would suggest you to call the customer care and let them fix it.

    i want to know … how to unlock the region code in Digital lab 7 DVD player ???

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    Vinay, unlike with a computer’s DVD drive, you’re unable to adjust the region code on this model.

    Galega says :

    There are some hacks which can make the DVD region free. But, that can also destroy it, if done in a wrong way. This player won’t make it and that’s for sure. I would suggest you to buy region free DVD, which will be little bit costly. Or, settle with the one which you have.

    Where does the cigarette lighter plug into the dvd player?

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    Dave, if you’re using a cigarette lighter charger, it would plug into the same port as the wall charger.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    There isn’t any cigarette lighter plug with this DVD player. You can check it out in the manual that you have gotten with the product.

    looking for a carrying case for our portable dvd players in order to hang them on the back of car seats. any suggestions?

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    There are many choices, and it will depend on your preferences. I’ve viewed several of them on Amazon. Here’s a link to one of several options:

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Digital Labs doesn’t sell portable case for this DVD player. However, you don’t need to worry. You can find many compatible case for its size in the open market. Get it from a third party store at your convenience.

    The DVD player DP281SA 7“ says no disc, when you put in a disc.

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    Jonesy, I assume you’ve tried multiple DVDs and the problem persists. If this is the case, it’s likely to be a problem with the laser. It will need to be either cleaned or replaced. If this is not something that you’re familiar with, you should seek a professional to have it repaired.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    No-disc errors are usually caused when the DVD or the laser-lens pickup has become dirty and causes the DVD player to not be able to read the DVD. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc.

    Judith, if you’re in the US and using US DVDs, the regional code is 1.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    You haven’t mentioned your exact geographical location. Region code will depend on the countries you are currently in. Region 1 - Canada, the United States and U.S. territories. Region 2 - Japan, Europe, South Africa, the Middle East (including Egypt) and Greenland. Region 3 - Southeast Asia, and East Asia (including Hong Kong).

    I have the model k725 and it is on but does not play the dvd. It states when I push play. Seq play and then it stops could you please tell me what it could be?

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    Sarah, it sounds like it’s not reading DVDs. The most likely thing to cause this is the laser, which is located internally. It’s not something that an average person would repair. If you’re under warranty, you should contact Digital Labs to have it replaced. If not you should seek out a professional to have it repaired.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    You need to do three things to diagnose the exact problem and to fix that accordingly. First, insert another DVD. If it is playing, then that will mean that your old DVD was faulty. If it is not playing, then clean the laser by gently rubbing through a soft cloth. If the problem still persists, then you may have to update the firmware of your DVD. The last problem will solve it, if the previous two doesn’t give any result.

    i have the rechargable battery and for some reason the wire that hooks to the dvd player just fell out.I took off the casing to reattach it and there is no visual sign of where the red and black wires attach to any one have this problem? or know how or where to attach them back to?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    This is a classic case when you need the manual to fix it. The manual will show the right combination of colored wire which needs to be inserted in a particular point. Start from left and insert red there. To the right of it, insert black wire. Check, it should be working now.

    I am trying to find a replacent battery for my Digital Labs DVD player. It is a 7.2v NiMH rechargable battery.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Replacement battery is also marketed by Digital Labs. Just visit any authorized store or its service center. You should find one. If there isn’t any store near your home and you need to replace it urgently, then you can buy a third party compatible battery from open market. Just ensure to get 7.2 NiMH rechargeable battery. There are many brands dealing in this segment.
