Re: Power supply for the 2nd screen ??

If you are not using the car power adapter that came with your PDV-768 for the 2nd screen, you are likely running into the possibility of "reversed polarity" with the power adapter you are attempting to use. This can & often will cause a problem with your unit.

Your Toshiba portable DVD player will have an AC adper [supplied] along with it when you buy it. Plug its DC pin into the "DC IN 12v" marked socket at its rear side. The charge LED at its front will light up. You can get these details from page [17] of its user manual.
If you don't have its user manual with you now, inform me by Fixya comment box along with your email address. I've the downloaded manual to your device, and I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.

What adapter can we buy to plug the venturer portable dvd player into a household mains plug. It only come with the 12v lighter car adapter

What I did with mine is check eBay for a 12 volt, DC LCD monitor adapter. These normally have sufficient amperage to handle these players.

I did a search on eBay today using search phrase:

"new power supply ac adapter for LCD monitor 12v 5a"

and came up with one for about $14.00 with shipping. You will need to check the plug when you get it and, if it does not fit, get one from Radio shack or, as I did, cut one from an old adapter I had laying around.

Most of these units require that the positive side goes to the center conductor of the plug (check the diagram on the player case over the plug to be sure) so make sure you set it up the way the diagram shows or very bad things will happen to your player.

You may be able to find a 12 volt adapter at Radio shack or somewhere else but these units need (according to the specs) about 1 amp from the supply to work and charge correctly. You "may" be able to get by with an 800 milliamp supply but I have not tested this.

Good luck

I have an insignia T.V. that I picked up on the curb. The power cord was cut. I want to rewire a cord to it. It has a white and black line. Does the white line go to the fat plug or the thin plug in the...

it will be a DC power supply normally so i would not plug direct in the mains.

normally there is a marking on the unit of required voltage also the white line is usually + and black -

and it could be anywhere from 12v onwards

best of luck.

I unplugged it and now it wont turn on after I plugged it back in to the wall outlet

The exact same thing happened to mine several days ago. I opened mine up, noted that two of the capacitors on the power supply are a bit puffed up, and tested the power supply's 12V and 5V outputs. The 12 Volt output is fine, but the 5 Volt output is only putting out 2 Volts. In short, all of the capacitors on the power supply are made by the same company (Jenpo) and apparently these capacitors were made using the stolen but incomplete formula for manufacturing capacitors much more cheaply. That "capacitor scandal" has cost electronics manufacturers millions. In any event, this would explain why Walmart blew out these Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 players for such a cheap price. Obviously all of the capacitors on the power supply will eventually fail. I have already experienced similar capacitor related problems with a few computer motherboards and other electronics equipment which I bought in the early to mid 2000's. I am contacting Cyberhome to see if they will send me a replacement power supply to go in my CH-DVD 300.

Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD - YELLOW light indicator of what problem?

Marlin P Jones & Assoc. Inc.. has a 5V 2.2A /12V 1.5A cord power supply that will fit into the space where the original power supply was! Lists for $6.95 but online price was $2.95. Works great! Connect 12V supply to the yellow lead and the 5V to the red lead of the output connector, black is ground, common to both supplies. Use QC terminals to the power cord input terminals, remove the cable clamp and the power supply will nestle beautifully in the space without need for support. (Remove the old circuit board plastic (3) and rear brass standoffs and use the front brass standoff for the output cable shield ground connection. (Part No. is 15955-PS) I bought two because I have a 2nd Cyberhome CD-DVD 300 which hasn't crapped out yet.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery
