Question about Durabrand PDV-709
I had the same problem with my Player I went to walmart and asked them about it and they said if you charge the battery before its completly drained or play the play while plugged in it will ruin the battery. Then I was told I had to order a new battery from Durabrand
Whoa careful there leethedeuce,
"but yes not draining it all the way and then charging it fully will decrease the batteries life."
That's not such a good idea; Li-Po's have no memory but they don't last long if over discharged.
It's better to keep Li-ion and Li-Po batteries charged and at 1/2 charge for storage.

Well actually it charges while plugged in even when running. but yes not draining it all the way and then charging it fully will decrease the batteries life. So they will not last as long if you take care and charge them properly. Durabrand is actually a walmart brand, made only for walmart. These dvd players are actually outsourced through Lennox. Here is the warranty info you can still have it repaired if it is out of warranty as stated:

You could try and contact them for a new battery but their are alot of rip off reports because of no way to contact them. Thats what you run into with these "low price" brands. Unfortunately you save money right away and it will cost you in the long run.
