Re: Battery WILL NOT Charge

4 months after buying the Durabrand PDV-705 Portable DVD Player it stopped charging the battery. At first if I held the connector in by hand it would worked but after awhile that stopped too. Now It wont work at all. The problem appears to be at the connector in the DVD player How do I fix this charging pin?

I have a polaroid 8"

The battery you use may be new, but haven't enough current capacity to supply the DVD player. DVD players will take much more current in ampears. Check if voltage drops when your DVD player works. You can check it with the help of a multimeter, set to measure voltage. Fist check the battery voltage. Keep the probs of the multimeter connected to the battery terminals, switch on your DVD player, and check whther the voltage drops to a considerable rate. That is, if the voltage at no-load condition is 12VDC, it may go down upto 11.5VDC, and no more drop must be there. If it is so, make sure that the battery is bad. OK.

When I am playing my movie, one & 1/2 hrs later the DVD movie will stop and say battery low. Put I did charge the battery days before I used it. What could be wrong? I have tried different dvd...

If you are waiting days and this unit is sitting you have to take in to account that batteries do degrade over time. Also if this unit is say in a car and you are in cold temperature climate right now, then the battery will loose charge quicker when idle.

How old is the unit? if the unit is a few years old, the degradation of the battery to this point is totally normal.

Rechargeable lithium batteries have a half-life of about three years. That means half of the capacity is gone is three years - another quarter in another three years. Replacement batteries can be found online. Even if your battery is not that old, this is the most likely reason for short run-life.
It is often possible to get the chemicals in the battery refilled by an online vendor. This is not only cheaper and makes the battery, literally "better than new", but is also easier on the environment.

My acurrian apd-3955 doesn't charge and play dvds

after 2 or 3 years of service the battery needs to be replaced.

Batteries have a finite charging "cycles". These cycles runs out every time you charge the battery.

Looking for a replacement battery for Durabrand PDB-702, does not hold charge

Good luck finding a direct replacement for this unit. A universal replacement can be found at many internet vendors for $30 to $50. RB-270 manufactured by INITIAL. 9.0V and 5400mA which is a great improvement over the OEM battery. Fully charged this battery should last 2 hours or more. NOTE: This is not a direct replacement and will not attach to your DVD player as the form factor is universal. It will reside next to the player during operation... a minor inconvenience. I think WALMART carries the same model.

Battery not holding charge

I had the exact problem as the other two above but resolved the situation as follows: I connected the battery to the charger and switched the power on. The charge light on the battery glowed 'red' as it should and some time later, not as long as it should have been, the light changed to 'green' indicating it was fully charged. At this point I removed the charge lead from the battery and then replacedit. The charge light reverted to 'red' again. When it eventually changed to 'green' I repeated the above step and did so for the next 18 hours. I then connected the battery to the player and played a dvd 1hr 55min film. It worked fine. I hope the solution works for yuo!!
