Okay, I just had to replace both the DC power and a/v cable for this Trutech DVD player and here is the solution. The a/v cable is a 4 pole 3.5mm cable, which I found here: http://www.techcables.com/6-ft-3-5mm-4-pole-mini-av-to-mini-av-camcorder-a-v-cable-p-36.html I went to Radio Shack and bought the coax style DC power plug ends which were size B and soldered new ends onto the old power cable, tip to tip, sleeve to sleeve: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102598

I had to move my AV cable around quite a bit to get the second monitor to come on. I realized it was the cable and not the connection by holding steady the connections and moving just the wire. I checked Radio Shack and Best Buy - no luck...
Then I did the following (takes 30 minutes max):
1.) found the portion of the cable that was bad
2.) carefully sliced open the outer jacket (with a box cutter razor),
3.) carefully pulled the wires (white, red, yellow, and bare copper ground) out of the outer black jacket. Inspected and found no visible defects. Realized that likely the yellow wire (probably the video feed) was shorting against the bare ground...so did the following remaining steps to remove the ground away from other wires.
4.) cut and unwound the ground,
5.) put the white, red, and yelllow wires back inside the outer black jacket, but left the bare ground out
6.) wrapped the two ends of the bare ground (that I cut in step 4) around the outer black jacket (still containing the other wires)
7.) reconnected the two ends of the bare ground, by twisting them together (you'll use-up an inch or two of the ground to re-twist it, so you will have to leave a small bump in the cable from the excess black jacketed portion.
8.) use black electrical tape to wrap all the wires together from the portion we opened-up.
Works like a champ.

I lost the AV cord to my Zenith DVP-615 portable DVD player too. I bought a standard RCA AV but it did not work. I found my cord so I was able to compare.
The standard RCA AV cable has a 4-part mini-plug. The tip is white, next is yellow, next is ground and the base is red. For the Zenith DVP-615, the tip is yellow, next is white, next is red and the base is ground.I never found where to purchase a replacement but perhaps this will help someone make their own.
