adding a video input jack to a malfunctioning portable DVD player Answered

I have a Coby portable DVD player that is malfunctioning in that it won't play discs, but the video display appears to be working normally. The jacks on the player are output only and I'd like to be able to switch one of them to an input jack so I could have an additional screen running off of a newer portable DVD player. Are there any known instructions out there? Is it feasible? Thanks, Jim

Not possible. Data isn't sent to the screen as a video signal, its all digital.

im still kinda new to the modding game but if im not mistaken there should be a bank of cables going to the screen, one or two of them should be the video input to the screen you could probably tap in to those for your video. ( or it might all be trace lines or tiny ribbon cables in which case i dont think its possible)

not absolutely posotive i have a similar problem but i need to figure out how to battery power a slave screen
