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.

Re: Battery pack doesn't charge
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
the battery is dead. that happened to me and i had 3 choices: 1)buy a new dvd player 2)buy a new recharable battery or 3)keep the portable plugged to the wall while i watch movies. i chose number 3 because i usually just use it at places plugs are available. but yeah, the battery is dead.
