One of my CM-7000's is cantankerous only working half the time. And you can see why in post#5 picture: They have a few dozen of those disastrous Chinese silver 'lytic caps on the motherboard! The COBY has even more: trouble waiting to happen.

Yes, I completely agree. Fix the actual problem instead of jury rigging it in a way that still makes it inconvenient to use, and will not solve things long-term.

The Zeniths and Insignias even when brand new, out of the box, have a strange trait. When you tap gently on the case, the screen will freeze up for a split second. Same thing will happen when a light or other electrical item is turned or off. Everyone I had did the same thing, outside of that worked perfect.
