Contact me at I am in desperate need for a battery as when I bought it used, it was not included so I just have to use the cords. Also, for anybody looking for a car or home adapter....go to walmart...I found many chargers around the house that work in the home and in the car. I have a Medela pump charger for instance that works on it. As long as it fits in the plug in hole well it should work.

I could sell you my battery since my player no longer works. The battery is still good as far as I know.

Won't turn on

If a portable, could be no charge or bad battery---output voltage is marked on the charger and can be tested with a meter---if voltage and battery are good (most units will work with the charger hooked even if battery is bad) then the unit has either a damaged jack where charger connects or has a power supply problem inside it.

Battery not holding a charge

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.Since you did not supply details of your device and the type of battery I cannot advise where to purchase the battery.
I suggest you Google the Internet for the rechargeable battery you require.

The player will not charge anymore. The charge light won't stay on.

It is more than likely the rechargeable battery is exhausted and must be replaced.

My Mintek portable DVD player's battery will not charge. I have rarely used the battery so I can't believe the battery is dead. The AC cord works to power it when plugged in. Why won't it...

After a while even rechargeable batteries loose the ability to hold a charge. This process accelerates when the battery is allowed to lie completely discharged for long periods of time. NiCad batteries especially have this issue. If you left the battery sitting for long periods without occasionally charging it, it losses the ability to hold a charge. It appears you are going to have to either do without the battery or replace the pack. I would take out the old one, it will eventually start to corrode and leak and if its still in your machine it will cause damage. If you get a new battery pack make sure you charge it fully and then depleat it completely before recharging it. hope this helps.

Suddenly, despite using the power cord, we get a "battery low" message and soon the player stops working. We've been using the DVD player for some time with no issues and this just started...

it is possible that the battery has been reset at a low level so it won't hold the charge. You may need to have it emptyed and then recharge it for the max time or you need to replace the battery.
