Take a voltmeter and test charger or borrow a known good one from a friend if you know anyone who has one , sounds like bad charger word--- it is much better to run all rechargeable devices mostly all the way down before recharging as these batteries will do what is know as establish memory and will shorten battery life do not leave on charge except when charge is needed

-Battery is too old. All charge able battery last only 2-3 year or maybe even less than that depend on how you use.
-If just a little low and keep charging then it life is short.
-If let it fully empty (dead) before charge the it last longer.

Good luck

Why red charge light keeps blinking?


Is your battery a LiPo (Lithium?) If so ... These special batteries are charged by a computer circuit that holds the charge amperage constant and adjust upward the charging voltage until the required battery voltage is reached. At this time the charger hold a constant voltage and decreases the amperage as the battery capacity is "topped off". the charger circuit charges the entire battery at once but monitors each cell (cells are about 3.7 volts each) and controls the charge so that all the cells are ballanced.

When one of the cells that makes up the battery starts to go bad, the ballance circuitry prevents over charging the others, so one weak cell hold all the cells back from full charge and better charger circuits will signal you with an led or such that the battery is' going' bad.

My Mintek portable DVD player's battery will not charge. I have rarely used the battery so I can't believe the battery is dead. The AC cord works to power it when plugged in. Why won't it...


After a while even rechargeable batteries loose the ability to hold a charge. This process accelerates when the battery is allowed to lie completely discharged for long periods of time. NiCad batteries especially have this issue. If you left the battery sitting for long periods without occasionally charging it, it losses the ability to hold a charge. It appears you are going to have to either do without the battery or replace the pack. I would take out the old one, it will eventually start to corrode and leak and if its still in your machine it will cause damage. If you get a new battery pack make sure you charge it fully and then depleat it completely before recharging it. hope this helps.

My Portable DVD Player Battery can't hold a charge


Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged so many times. They begin to slowly lose their capacity after about the first 5 charges until ultimately it won't hold a charge anymore. It appears that this is your problem. Look for a model number on the battery & do a Google search for it if you want to try & replace it. You might also find it is cheaper to buy a whole new DVD player than it is to buy a replacement battery.

Looking for a replacement battery for Durabrand PDB-702, does not hold charge


Good luck finding a direct replacement for this unit. A universal replacement can be found at many internet vendors for $30 to $50. RB-270 manufactured by INITIAL. 9.0V and 5400mA which is a great improvement over the OEM battery. Fully charged this battery should last 2 hours or more. NOTE: This is not a direct replacement and will not attach to your DVD player as the form factor is universal. It will reside next to the player during operation... a minor inconvenience. I think WALMART carries the same model.

Insignia PD10135 Portable DVD Player Battery won't work


I have the same unit, and had the same problem numerous times. I finally removed the battery and sprayed CRC electronic cleaner over the battery terminals as well as the units terminals. Put the battery back in hooked up the charger and it went green. It is playing as I write this.
