Question about GPX PDL705

1 Answer

Battery pack doesn't charge

When I plug in the red charge light goes on (red) foe one second and thengoes out, Leaving it plugged in for hours does not result in a charge. It does run when plugged in. When I measure voltage on the battery using a volt-ohm meter, I read 0.3v on the right hand most contact and nothing else.

    I cleaned the terminals but it did not help. Is there a repair or fix-it place that can check the circuitry. I am in Gaithersburg, MD 20886.

The battery voltage is perfect as what you have mentioned.its the problem of the connectors to which the battery is connected that connectors r either loose or dirty thats why the battery is not getting detected.the connectors needs to be checked and made proper.

No problem just bought a mpd-1760 from someone its brand new never even been used ,but no instructions/need to know how long to charge battery for first time or at all //charging time for battery to watch...


Hello,
To charge the battery back you want to
  1. Turn the power off the DVD player first as the battery pack will not charge with the power on.
  2. Attach the battery pack to the player.
  3. Connect the AC power adapter and the power cord to the player.
  4. Charging will now start and the Power/Charge indicator should now be orange.
  5. Do not unhook either cord until the Power/Charge turns off.
  6. Time of charging is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
  7. The battery pack will more than likely get warm while charging. This is normal. Keep it as much in the open as you can for the best ventilation possible.
  8. You will get a low power indicator on the screen when the battery has a low charge.

As for playback time you will get about 2 1/3 hours of actual playback and about 4 hours of standby with the DVD player actually on.
Regards, Tony

How do I recharge the battery? This is a portable DVD player with a battery pack and the instructions say recharge battery before useing, so I put the battery in place and plug in the power cord and left...


Hello, You are doing it right! the battery should be charged with in the 24 hour period. There are two things to consider : One, is the possibility that the rechargeable battery has dried(due to wear and tear)and is not accepting the charge or The second possibility is that the power supply isn't working properly, therefore, not charging the battery.
It is possible to know at least if one of the two is working just by operating the DVD player while connected with the AC adapter. Turn the DVD on and play a disc, if the unit operates, this eliminates a defective power supply and only leaves a defective battery pack, if it doesn't work than consider the power supply defective and repairs are due. As to where to buy a replacement part is for someone else to answer. Good luck!

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.

Charge battery for zenith dvp615


michelle,

not so familiar with this model but try this:

1) Plug your power adaptor to main unit
2) locate "power on" switch and change it to "off"

after doing this steps you will see a red light which means the unit is charging.

note: for some portable player once the charging is complete this red light changes color either orange or green which means the battery already full charge. but it is adviceable to charge battery for atleast 2hrs.

cheers,
mark

Make sure the battery is installed in the correct direction, turn off the player, plug in the AC pack and look for the red charge light to illuminate on the front lip of the player. Give it a few hours to charge.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery

The second question, I couldnt work that one out at first, but now i think I understand. If you plug the player into the mains, turn it on, red light shows. Light turns green when battery charged. Do not use until light turns green (if plugged into mains). In other words dont use the player while the battery is charging. If it isnt plugged into the mains then the battery cant be charging and you can use. Until battery gets too low :)

Hi Phylis, You don't mention the plug-in battery pack which slots into the 4 pin socket on the back of the player. If you don't have the battery pack it will only play when plugged in. Peter
