    Hello,

    Bought a Shinco 7" portable DVD player from Play.com just over a year ago and it's started sticking in the menus. When you select an episode of something like Futurama it'll often just hang there or return to the title menu. Anyone any idea on how to fix this or any idea where I might be able to take it to get it repaired?

    Thanks

    Sorry for hijack

    On the same note I've had my Shinco just over a year from Firebox and the laser mechanism has become extremely noisy, a real metallic grating noise, so any advice to RockStromgo applies here.

    Cheers.

    Bought mine fromAmazon about 4 weeks ago .I watched 3 films on it and it then started to play up. When I put a disc in it would not read it (any disc). The disc just continued to spin at very high speed. I contacted Amazon and they told me to send it back and they sent me a replacement within two days, no questions asked. Mine also makes quite a loud whirring noise, I think that this is normal
