Re: Portable Car dvd player

Here is the link to the owner's manual and the installation manual for your player;,,2076_310070347_38318,00.html You have to register to access the info, but it is free. The player runs from the car battery power source, so it can be run from a transformer in your home - available from any good hardware store. The player itself specifies a power source of 14.4 voltsDC preferred, 10.8 - 15.1vDC is allowable. maximum current drawn is 10Amps. If you take these specifications to a hardware store they will be able point you in the right direction. a car battery charger could do the job, but i would recommend putting it through a battery not directly to the player as this will possibly damage it. make sure you put a fuse in the system near the player i would recommend a 5A fuse, if that blows too much then try a 6 or 8 A fuse - dont go over 10 amps and make sure it is a quick blowing type. If you have a charging car battery in your home, be very careful to ensure there is proper ventilation - when charging, the battery gives off hydrogen gas which disperses without problem from a car engine bay, but can build up to explosive concentrations in a building without adequate airflow. Some batteries have a small connector for a breather tube, which can be led outside through a window or a hole drilled in the wall. other batteries need to be boxed, and a breather tube put on the box. If you are careful about the hydrogen gas then this can be quite safe - make sure you keep the battery well maintained - follow the safety instructions about dealing with acid, insulate the battery terminals properly to avoid shock, sparks or power surges. Box the battery in a vented box - make the lining acid resistant (polyester or epoxy resin for instance) if possible. Simpler may be to charge the battery elsewhere and connect it alone to the player - you will have to move the battery around a lot which is inherently a bad idea in many ways. still make sure it is fused regardless. Easiest would be a proper mains transformer/rectifier as described. there is no other reason why you would not be able to use this player at home. Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)

The picture on the screen of our portable DVD looks broken

Portable DVD players are fairly inexpensive. You should be better off buying a new one than having this one repaired, after you figure in parts and labor.

Connecting an External Portable Hard Drive?

You are connecting it to a car DVD player, but how many types of music format is it capable of playing? It should be in the Manual, however it will be able to play mp3. *.flac, *.wmv, *.wav, *.cda. But how ere you going to power your external hard disk? If it has provision for use of 12V DC voltage, same as that of the car. After its powered, only then will it work, but the USB connector will provide the output into the DVD players USB slot(just like attaching a flas drive like pen drive which uses the USB slot for power too....sodeep
