Re: No power via batteries

The batteries are put in wrong, or there no good, or the dc jack in the back still has the plug in it for the ac adaptor. You see theres a small switch on the jack inside the unit that switches from the ac adaptor to the batteries, when the jack is iserted. Also if the plug is not pluged into the jack, then there could be a bad jack or a broken solder connection on the jack inside on the printed circiut board. good luck

For use during an extended power outage, where of course you wouldn't be able to recharge the battery after it drained initially, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using a 12 volt lead acid rechargeable...

You simply need a DC - AC Inverter, these can be obtained from somewhere like Radio Shack, or the like, pretty cheaply. These convert 12V DC into 115/120V AC (Some are 24V - 115/120 V) for use with your household appliances. You can get them from 100 Watts to over 1 kilowatt (!000 Watts) They can be used on almost anything at all, except things with big motors in them. Then you can simply plug the AC adapter into the inverter and you are good to go. not having to worry if your laptop is getting correct power.
Often the DC input into a laptop is between 14 Volts DC to 22 Volts DC and a high current too, up to 5 Amps. So the inverter is your best option.
Anyway you would need to use at least TWO 12 Volt batteries and then you would have to make it the exact voltage the laptop needed.. if it was say 19V then you are still going to have to find a way to drop the 24 V to 19 V, anyway so.....

Where can i get an external antenna adapter to fit my tv/dvd from

Well I thought I had one of the mini-jack to F type connector cables ordered but then it became Discontinued at However, if Radio Shack still carries those F-connector to mini-mono earphone plugs then with another F-type Quick Connect you can make one with a length of RG-*.*/U cable with F-type screwon male connectors. Almost every one has some of those cable or satellite pieces laying around or stored and with proper adapters can fashion one for their portable TV's.

Toshiba 9" TV/VCR W/CAR AC/DC - No power when on battery

I would check on the inside for a disconnected wire or loose connection at the Dc imput if it still works on ac. You can most likely get a service manual at if the wires are intact on the DC imput and the jack itself fits secure to the adapter. Hope this helps
