Won't hold a charge I guess is the problem

I charge it up and it says fully charged after a few minutes, but then does not play... Not even plugged in. I rarely used this thing and it doesn't work! Is it the battery already or is this just another bad product?

Battery will not hold a charge


The battery is defective. I could not find a replacement battery online. The player is less expensive than the cost to repair unless it is covered under warranty. IN future, donot allow the battery to fully discharge. It will shorten its life or end it completely!

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.

How do i know when the dvd is charging?


When you first plug it in, the green led should flash for a few seconds. It will then go on solid green while charging. The green led turns off after it thinks the battery is fully charged. Not sure what it does with a defective battery but this is the basic charge sequence.

Fisher price dvd player - Need instruction manual


Check the Fisher Price website for an instruction manual. My daughter has one and when you plug it in and the red light is blinking that means the battery is charging. It has a battery pack inside (not removeable) that needs to be charged for 8 hours before the first use, but I'm guessing yours is used, so just let it charge until the light goes off.

Need help charging my mintek dvd player battery


The way the battery is usually charged is by plugging it into the player and plugging the player into the a/c outlet. Do not use the player, Just allow the player to charge the battery. The way you tell if the charging is working is the light on the front will usually be a red color and it will be steady color or blinking while charging. When the battery is fully charged, the light will turn green or turn off . This lets you know that the battery has fully charged.To test this try using the dvd player on the battery only. Play a dvd or cd and see if the battery is working properly. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Charged battery only lasts 30 minutes


Try fully draining the battery and recharging it fully. If that does not work chances are the battery is going bad. How old is the dvd player ? If its still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement.

Have no manual


It sounds like a bad power cord. Check your cord to make sure there are no kinks or breaks in it. I have that problem where my cat chewed the cord and now the unit cannot charge properly. Additionally, check to make certain the battery is seated properly. Try cleaning the contact with an Q-tip dipped in alcohol. Once you have done that, leave the unit powered off and see if you get the red charge light. If not, you probably have a bad cord.

Battery not holding charge


I had the exact problem as the other two above but resolved the situation as follows: I connected the battery to the charger and switched the power on. The charge light on the battery glowed 'red' as it should and some time later, not as long as it should have been, the light changed to 'green' indicating it was fully charged. At this point I removed the charge lead from the battery and then replacedit. The charge light reverted to 'red' again. When it eventually changed to 'green' I repeated the above step and did so for the next 18 hours. I then connected the battery to the player and played a dvd 1hr 55min film. It worked fine. I hope the solution works for yuo!!
