Question about Durabrand DUR-1700 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Unable to locate Manual, battery charge or car and wall adapter.

I have checked for days trying to locate a new or used DVD Player with parts so I can get the items I need to no avail. I can find used players without charger or adapters on EBay, but no manuals and would like to know if there are still places that have new ones in a box somewhere. The website that has manuals does not have my brand.

Do you have any suggestions. My player worked just fine when I had them, but they disappeared after family had garage sale. Now I can't find them, and I need them to charge the unit in order to play.

I tried to buy the generic adapters at Walmart but did not know how to figure out what type or strength I needed to use and did not want to damage my unit buy plugging in the wrong strength. I also tried to find help on the internet that services Durabrand and they did not know how to get a manual either.

Please Help!    Sincere Thanks, Pat

Hi Patreeves,
Please give me the specific brand/model of the DVD Player. Actually most of appliances are having indicated sticker label or written where the output, input description on such device are located. Sometimes you can find it at the bottom of the device, sometimes at near at the hole of the electric plug where you connect the adapter and sometimes it was located inside the body of your dvd player.
I'm a pretty sure, a lot of electronic shop that know's how to evaluated the current voltage needed to run your dvd player. 
Please follow this link maybe this is more helpful for you to obtain you aim they are ac adapter power conversion specialist for appliances.
Hoping that this information is very helpful to you.
Best regards,

I have the dvd player...that's all. What other parts do I need to be able to use this Model dvp615

I looked on line and found the manual at : It looks as though you need a 9.5v wall adapter, or vehicular power cable. The internal battery may be shot and need replacing, but perhaps you can take the battery out and use it with the wall adapter. I hope this is helpful to you.

Charging light not coming on

Good day sir, my guess is that your adapter is the culprit, if you have access to another charger please use it, if you may have the time, try to visit your dealer, and they be wiling to test your adapter. Other causes may be the charger DC port, or the battery, but let us stick first to the common adapter problem, hope this helps.

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.

Brand new dvd player just shut off and won't turn on or charge

Your problem is most likly the ac/dc adapter, try your power cord for your car see if that works. if it does then its the adapter. Venturer has had some problems with their chargers.

Magnavox MPD850 DVD Player Doesn't turn ON

Many people buy electronics and never read the manual.
The first thing to do before operating an electronic device is to
read the manual, is for the best. I have had this unit for two years now
and have no problems with it. The most commond mistake people make
with this portable DVD is that they plug in the lighter without removing
the battery. You can't charge the battery with the lighter adapter and
you must remove the battery before you turn it on.

Charge light does not come on???

I had the same problem after buying a new dvd from bestbuy.

although this may sound wierd, but check if you have a battery in there, since its coming without it inside.

maybe you bought it without a battery.
