    I did see those review and I must admit to being singularly unimpressed, hence my question.

    What exactly has packed up, the DVD unit or the head unit(screen) ?

    The DVD player, apparently, The head unit functions without a problem but cannot detect the DVD. And, of course, the clock will not update without the satellite signal.

    Assuming you've cleaned the lens, I would suspect the drive mechanism inside the DVD unit.
    This can be repaired / replaced quite easily.
    If it's the DVD unit, these turn up on ebay regularly - But be careful to get the correct one !

    However, you can also get that fault if there is a problem with the DVD disc.

    Thanks for the Info. I did take the car into a Honda Dealer who tried his (Guaranteed Genuine) disc which failed to work
    I didn't get an estimate of the replacement cost, presumably less than this Koolertron thing?

    I can't remember the price to repair through the dealer.
    If you search through the posts in the 7th Generation Accord section, there's more info.
    There are also others on the net that repair them.

    If you're up for a little DIY, you can buy a drive unit inside the DVD for about £100 and change it yourself.
    However, that is assuming that's what's failed !

    The dealer should be able to narrow this down for you.
