You have a couple things to check first off.

1. Using a VOM, measure the output voltage of the Wall Charger power cord. You should measure 9VDC +/-10%.

2. If voltage is present, then ensure that the pin located in the center of the female jack on the DVD Player is not loose by using the end of a Click-able ball point pen.

3. If the pin is secure, attempt to plug the jack in and move it slowly and slightly in a circular motion and see if the LED on the front of the unit comes on at any point.

4. If you have a battery pack that plugs into the side power jack of the unit, measure that voltage as well and make sure that it matches what's listed on the battery pack. If you have the battery pack that latches onto the back side and connects via the plate connectors, then you will need to use something very thin and metallic to measure the output and ensure that the voltage is accurate for that battery.

5. If all the voltages are accurate and present, then you most possibly have a broken solder connection within the unit or a defective DC input jack.

Try this using a differeent computer. Some computers generate a lot of digital noise. Also use a lot of gain from the guitar to improve the signal to noise ratio.

Did I get you right, 200 pcs of brand new Protron PDV700 DVD Portable Player?

In any case, chances are the problem is the switching 5V regulator which supplies the logic circuitry or any part of the circuitry of the power supply.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
