After trying to use the cord that became frayed, when I plugged it into the car adapter the unit started smoking! It will do nothing now. Where do I send it for repairs. Target won't replace it since we couldn't find our receipt.
Call Todd @ 1-612-344-4730 and ask for a car adapter for that model. He will have you go to UPS web site and make out a shipping label fax to him he will ship you one. I did it yesterday and its on its way to me I know because I tracked it. Be nice to him and he will do it asap. I will have it by next tuesday UPS says.

Usually where the power cord goes it tells you what kind it is (i.e. 12vDC). From my experience, Radio Shack offers different kinds of cords as well as plugs for the unit that match up with the plug on your player. I'd go there and check it out but bring the unit with you and they will match things up.
See my other posting. I doubt it's your power cord at all. These units
are notorious for this. Do a 'google' search on them and see what I
mean. I can only reccomend that you invest in some research before
buying another one. Price is NOT everything! It ain't a bargin if it's
worthless! (Or: Paying anything, however little, is TOO much for
something worth nothing) I will canabolize mine for the screen. I paid
$20.00 for it at Goodwill. I know how to do this, but I realize most
folks don't, or do not have the time, nor inclination to do so. I'm
disabled, so time I have, money I don't.
I would suggest Radio Shack or similar local electronics store that specializes in electronics for hobbyists(meaning Best Buy and Circuit City would not be my first choice). The trick will be to match the output voltage and amperage, which should be listed on the label attached to the unit (sometimes on the bottom) or listed on the old home AC adapter if you still have it. The other thing to keep in mind is the size of the plug connector which the adapter uses to connect to the unit. Take the unit to Radio Shack and they should be able to figure out which AC adapter is right for your unit.
