As have been posted in a post of similar concern...
You can try calling Target Customer Service 1.800.440.0680 and inquire cost & availability of the charger for the TruTech PVS12701.
Additionally, you may want to contact the manufacturer direct.
ALCO Electronics, Inc.
8392 Six Forks Rd., Suite 104, Raleigh, NC 27615,
Should you need direct Customer Support, please try here.
Alternately, you can just look for an AC adapter/charger that has the following specs:
Input Voltage - your country's standard AC mains;
Output Voltage - 12VDC
Output Current - at least 1.5 Amp (the higher the better)
Connector - one that will fit and match the polarity of the TruTech PVS12701. (am guessing crown type center positive, pls confirm with the store. It may also help to bring along the unit when doing the purchase over the counter).
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Only a temporary solution....
Target sells a scam with their Trutech brand, this entire line deserves a recall, nobody is getting support or refunds. NOTHING. Target deserves a class action suit against them.
In the time-being, your DVD player probably still can play movies, just that the drawer gets stuck. What is happening is, the mechanism that raises the DVD to be scanned when the disc is in doesn't lower properly so when the drawer is supposed to eject, it is held back. You can manually eject this.
The cheap flip-down door is flexible so when you press the center of it, the outside edges become bowed and can be pulled down with a fingernail. Under the drawer (you may need some light to see for the first time), about 1/2" from the left inside, there is a black plastic wheel. Using a paperclip, you can catch the "teeth" on this wheel and turn it counter-clockwise (from left to right) and this will lower the mechanism and likely your tray will automatically eject.
You might be surprised that after this, your tray will open and close fine consecutively by hitting the eject button. But keep in mind, the problem is the mechanism that raises the DVD to be read is what holds back the eject from working.
Do yourself a favor and scream at Target. Make yourself heard, everyone is having problems with this line.

Go to PS3 / Display settings. Set superbright OFF, even if you don't have HDMI. Set Cross Color Reduction to OFF. Set Display to only one resolution, not all of them as you probably have it now. Set it ot the highest possible resolution and uncheck all other boxes. The 480i is always on by default. The issue, which was very annoying, was fixed for me. I have a mitsubishi 65 inch RP that is pretty bright on daytime/sunlight scenes, so I never thought it was the PS3, but only whet the PS3 was used did this occur. I scanned this site via google to find that nobody else appeared to have resolved this. So after some changes and testing this solution worked for me. Enjoy! - Dave Walz
P.S. I think the only real fix was to set just one display resolution, but I am now watching a movie and am not going to stop it to find out. :) That's for whomever follows this posting to find out for themselves. Either way, this is working great.
