I have a used battery for the Proton pdv 388. I think it is still good. I will give it to you if you will cover the shipping.

I have a broken PDV-388 and wish I had the instructions!

Did you finally get your unit working?

Don't suppose I could get a photocopy of the User's instructions?

Plug in A/C adaptor to ubit and with unit off, see if you can get a voltage measurement from the terminals that connect to the battery. If voltage is present, dead cells in battery. If no voltage present, suspect switching regulator. These units are hard to service due to parts availablity and cost of a replacement unit vs shop labor and parts charge.

No user manual for Protron PDV-288 portable DVD player

nahh you cant over chargee silly;; when its done, its done, it just doesnt loose battery power. and im not positive about the light.. but i would most likely assume that when the green light is on, that means its charging.. thats how pretty much every electronic works.. light on-charging; light off-no charge. sometimes it varies by different color lights.

thanks ! hope i was helpful.

I need an DC adapter for my Protron Model No PDV-388 portable dvd player

I would suggest trying a store like RadioShack. They offer several solutions from universal plug sets to replacement plugs that should work with your device.

Just bring the unit in to the store and they should be able to find one that fits.
