Does your apex dvd player only play dvd audio without video ?
Or does it play audio and video but scrolling in black and white ?
Before you try to return the player or waste hours calling apex tech support , or run the player over with your car , try these simple troubleshooting ideas first .
No picture :
Hopefully you still have the remote control .
If you tossed it out the window , you need to fetch it .
Using the remote control , press the i/p button located on the bottom right corner of the remote .
The i/p button switches the tv display between interlace and progressive .
If this doesnt bring back the picture , try pressing this button without playing a dvd .
If you dont get video back , now you can run the player over with your car !
Picture scrolling in b/w :
You need the remote control for this so you better get it from your dog before he burries it in the backyard .
Press the p/n button located on the bottom right corner of the remote .
The p/n button switches your dvd players video output signal between pal and ntsc .
By pressing p/n , you should be able to get a good picture on the screen .

I hope i have helped you continue to enjoy the apex dvd player with these troubleshooting tips .
I have done some research and experimenting with the remote when my apex ad-2500 seemed to have lost its video signal .
Im a more happier person after discovering the i/p button !
The button was probably accidentally pushed to cause the black screen in the first place .
But , if you 're looking for my opinion of the apex dvd player , i love it !
It practically plays almost everything you give it .
I 've had the player for about 2 years now and it still performs nicely with the exception of an occasional wwhhhrrr sound from the motor .
For the price it is a well spent investment !
I would recommend buying one .
