Re: 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!!

Re: battery not holding charge

I have the same problem with my MP72. I bought it last year, never charged the battery, and just now pulled it out to charge the battery, and won't hold a charge for more than maybe 5 minutes, then shuts down. I also bought the performance protection plan for this, but come to find out that "consumables" like batteries aren't covered, so I'm stuck. Even though I had never used the battery and would assume they would include a new usable battery in the box. What a joke, Mustek products and Office Depot PPP plans seem to be worthless.

Re: battery not holding charge

Probably the battery is dead. You may need to purchase a new one.

Why the battery of my unit is not charging? and When do i know the rechargeable battery is to be replaced?Coy

You need to replace the battery when it no longer charges or when the battery won't hold a charge and dies quickly. the charging symbol will light, as the charger is working, but in your case, the battery is not accepting or holding the charge.

Is this a hand-held DVD player?

Why red charge light keeps blinking?

Is your battery a LiPo (Lithium?) If so ... These special batteries are charged by a computer circuit that holds the charge amperage constant and adjust upward the charging voltage until the required battery voltage is reached. At this time the charger hold a constant voltage and decreases the amperage as the battery capacity is "topped off". the charger circuit charges the entire battery at once but monitors each cell (cells are about 3.7 volts each) and controls the charge so that all the cells are ballanced.

When one of the cells that makes up the battery starts to go bad, the ballance circuitry prevents over charging the others, so one weak cell hold all the cells back from full charge and better charger circuits will signal you with an led or such that the battery is' going' bad.

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 Portable DVD Player Battery can't hold a charge

Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged so many times. They begin to slowly lose their capacity after about the first 5 charges until ultimately it won't hold a charge anymore. It appears that this is your problem. Look for a model number on the battery & do a Google search for it if you want to try & replace it. You might also find it is cheaper to buy a whole new DVD player than it is to buy a replacement battery.

There are only a few possible reasons...

  1. The battery is not being charged properly
  2. The battery needs to be cycled
  3. The batter is defective
Option 1 - If available try another charger
Option 2 - Run the device until the battery totally dead\depleated of power. Then charge the battery for the maximum charge time suggested by the manufacturer. If you do not have the manual and cannot find their website then attempt to charge the unit for apptox 24 hours. If this does not work then it is either option 1 or 2.
Option 3 - If available try another battery in the device and see if it is being charged and if it is holding the charge. If Yes, then the battery need to be replaced.

Battery won't hold a charge

Replace the battery. They have a limited lifetime and it is obvious yours has reached that point.
