    Santastinker, how much does this cost to repair? Is it worth fixing or is it more cost effective to buy a new portable DVD player on sale. We really like this DVD player, this Mintek is the best one we have had yet!

    Santastinker - Next question, where is your shop? And how long does this repair take? I was hoping to have it fixed by Thanksgiving travel plans. I live in Raleigh, NC.

I think this is a common problem. The internal jack is broken, either itself or broken on the circuit board. These jacks are weak and easily abused. It needs to be replaced by a technician. What I do in my shop, is to hard-wire an external in-line jack to the C.B.A. so that can never happen again.

    msmon24, This is the most common question I ever get asked. The answer is going to be different at every shop you go to.
    At my shop, for this kind of problem, I charge about $30 + parts(at cost). I also detail clean the laser pick-up assembly. The problem with buying a new unit, is you'll still have a unit with the same weakness. It is because the jacks (headphone and power) takes the most abuse. You must remember that most units today are built by robots, and robots don't care much about quality control.

    I should be able to send it back the day after I receive the unit.
    If you want me to fix it, you'll need to send $40 plus return postage.
    Please pack well, and don't forget to send your power cord and car "charger".

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways


Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

DS Lite Will Not Power On


There is a possibility that your battery has developed a short circuit or is so bad that it pulls down the charge voltage on the charger. You are therefore left starved of a power and therefore no function.
If possible, disconnect the battery and run the DS on the charger power alone. If the DS starts to work, I suggest replacing the battery.

N500 will not charge


If the battery is old/cyclelife expired, it needs replacing. If the battery is new, try another cord/charger/transformer to verify.

My laptop is not charging. i plug the power in but still doenst charge. im not sure if its on the power cords or on the laptop please help asap i need my laptop for school :(


Does the laptop work on AC ? Is the battery or cord/charged a replacement? First, try another cord/charger of the EXACT same specs as original. Second, Is the battery good? How old? Over 4 years? Have it tested. Beware of inexpensive aftermarket batteries and cord/chargers. I assume the laptop works on AC? If you unplug the AC , with battery in, the laptop shuts down immediately?

When I plug in my Jet 3 Ultra 4500, it seems to charge - the charging lights come on - but it never charges. In fact, I can't get it to move at all, even when plugged in. I think I am using the...


when you plug in the charger do you get any amp reading on the meter located at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair. When you plug in the cord the meter should deflect and read 6 amps or so. If you aren't getting any deflection of the amp meter then either the batteries are dead or the charger is bad. If you have a voltmeter you can set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the charger port located under the front of the joystick Plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the port with the charger plugged into the wall you should be reading 27-30 volts. Unplug the charger and you will be reading the battery voltage and fully charged they should read 25-27+ volts. If you aren't reading 25-27 volts without the charger plugged in you will need new batteries( anything less than 10 volts will not let the chair turn on) if you aren't getting 27-30 volts with the charger plugged in then the charger is bad and you can get or borrow an off-board charger and charge the chair thru the joystick port Hope this helps

Have not used my Garmin since January 2011. Sitting on shelf. Plugged in to my car charger and would not turn on. Would this mean it needs charged?


After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.

Battery charger


Yes. Usually they either work or they don't so obviously when they test good they should charge the battery. Dell laptops have a "data pin" that determines what wattage of power cord is plugged. If this data pin goes bad on the power cord or motherboard the laptop won't charge.

I have a Gateway ml6720 and when I plugg it in to charge the light goes on and off now it will not even come on. Is it the cord or the peice in the back?


Most likely you have lost the charger "brick" itself. I have though seen an increase in the power cord that plugs into the wall socket go bad and that would be the last piece I would think of going bad but they do. The easiest way to test the cord is get another power cord that plugs into the power "brick", if the light comes on and stays on, then it was the actual power cord and not the adapter (brick) part. Less expensive "bricks" tend to run very hot and therefore do not last long. The cheaper "bricks" that are made in China, tend to last less than a year under normal load.

Panasonic vx37


My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.

Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.
