Re: No picture

And if that doesn't work, try carefully unscrewing the screen and the hinge and reseat the tiny connectors of ribbon wire and wiring harnesses.

If your portable DVD player work with the AC power adapter in the wall outlet.100% the litium battery doesn't take any more holding charges.The litium battery should last u about 2 years with minium usages 2-3 hours a day.But that the DVD player and the litium battery must keep in very well conditon and wheather wise.Not in the heat or cold and the humitnity well shorten the lituim battey life very quickly and also could damages the portable DVD player too dosen't matter how much u used it.Tries webites like,, to buy a new litium battery or a compatible one.

Bought the PDV-709 a few years ago and never really used it. Took it on a trip and found that it would not work when plugged into the outlet in the van while the van was running. If you turn off the van...

That's an odd one for sure, but it might be some safety feature so DRIVERS won't use it while driving.
The cheap solution is a 7812 votage regulator - but since the safety circuit is likely in the cigarette plug itself, it's not easy to put the regulator between the source voltage and the circuit input.
So, here's the not-so-technical solution.
It's a 100W power inverter with USB
For under $20, it turns your cigarette lighter plug into a 120V AC outlet plus has a USB 5V port for things like MP3 players etc that charge off the USB port in the PC.
So basically you just plug in the home adapter into the 120V outlet, and you can watch and charge while driving. Not only that, it'll be good for other low power devices later on, not just this one (like laptop/notebooks blackberry/cellphones, any low power plug in device).
For the price, it's a perfect solution, and you can order online and have it delivered!

Portable DVD PLAYER: I don't get any audio. I'm batteried-up, plugged in, volume high, remote working, picture good -- just no audio. Any suggestions:

Maybe it has a failure in the audio amplifier, if there's no sound even with headphones or the internal speakers, if there's audio only with headphones.

Screen went black

That is a low battery warning icon. Check first the DC adapter/charger output. It might be not working so the battery is drained. Then the player will not turn on. The player will still turn on even the battery is dead when plugged into an outlet.

PDV880 will not work even when plugged into an outlet

I have the same problem. I ordered a new AC adaptor for this thinking (hoping) that was the problem. Alco Electronics sent me a power cord which doesn't even fit into this.....

Power source.

Well I am not a technical person, but i imagine it should be possible to use all such products while they are charging.

How do I charge battery

Simply hook the battery up to the player, plug in the adapter (house AC outlet, car adapter will not recharge batter), and turn the unit off.

The charging light should come on and when it goes out it's fully charged.

Mintek 8" TFT portable dvd player MDP1810

DO NOT continue to try to charge that battery. The company recalled those batteries because they explode or start on fire. Do a google search of "mintek" and you can read about the recall.
