Mdp 1760 - car adaptor wont work-universal quit also
The original car adaptor stopped working, I purchased a universal power cord. It worked for awhile then stopped. I purchased another universal power cord and it won't work at all. Our inside power source works fine. Any suggestions? I would like to purchase an original power cord but I haven't had any luck finding the part. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

You can find one here and they claim it has a longer life then the original. http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/363190/Lenmar-Battery-For-Initial-IDM-1731/?cm_mmc=Mercent-_-Google-_-Power_Protection_and_Batteries-_-363190&mr:trackingCode=5154DB1A-EC81-DE11-B7F3-0019B9C043EB&mr:referralID=NA
If you look at your DVD player, it will have information such as 5V, 2.2A. This information will help you choose the correct AC adaptor. Head over to The Source, FutureShop, BestBuy, etc and bring the DVD player in.
As for a universal AC adaptor. These range from $15 - $50. Just make sure the one you get has the correct plug and voltage/amp range and polarity for it. The salesperson should be able to help.
Unfortunately, Mintek seems to have gone out of business, so there is no way to purchase replacement parts without finding them online somewhere.
The problem could be caused by one of three things:
The battery is dead and cannot be recharged
One of the battery connections is broken in some way
The cord is bad and will not provide power
If the battery is dead, you're stuck with keeping it plugged in or trying to find a battery online. If one of the battery connections is bad, the only way to test it is with a new battery and you're back to finding one online. If the cord is bad, it wouldn't provide power at all, so it sounds like both of your cords are fine.
