Try running a dvd drive cleaner and a variety of different angles of loading discs into drive: Different tilts and different rotational positions (pivots) and prepare to be patient. Can you help me? I need a scan of the manual, or a fax. If you give up on your drive, I'd like to buy your remote control...-... Is your unit a pdv388?

Says "Wrong Disc" whever I out a DVD in.

Mine also sat that long and now battery won't charge well. Perhaps I can help you. After a variety of repeated attempts, I got mine to play discs with power supply hooked up. I varied the rotational position of the disc I was loading relative to that of the spline into which it clicks when I push it into place. I also changed the sequence in which each of the four latches on the spline-like thingie clicked into place by varying the angle of tilt (i.e. noon lowest, 1:30 lowest, two o'clock lowest, three lowest, on&on around clockwise toward 12:00 position being again lowest) until it started right and seemed to vibrate less.
Gradually, It got easier and easier to get it going, with each of the discs I was trying, instead of only with the one of them it likes best. now it plays all my discs but I think I feel and hear more vibration than before three or four months of storage. I suspect that balance was somehow compromised during storage that has now been partially restored. I have no idea, though, how to go about telling it to input a tv signal from the coaxial cable of my satellite dish or vcr, since I have lost the instruction manual. Perhaps you could help me. I brouse through all the menus I can find with the buttons on the surface of the player and don't see an input selection menu. The remote is also missing in storage, so I suspect that a button only found on the remote is required for the setting/selecting that I need. Could you look in your manual and advise me?

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.

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.
