Question about Durabrand PDV-705 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Connection my charger wont connect internally to charge the battery. If I wiggle it around the red light will go on but won't stay on -- I can't get in contact with Durabrand - the phone # on the DVD player is disconnected and I can't find their website.

Re: connection

If it isnt more than 1 year old wal mart will exchange it. if they wont the connection in the unit might have come loose from the board if so you can have it soldered back onto the board. or you might have to replace the the plug in in the unit.

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.

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.

I have a accurian portable dvd player APD-3955 and it works but the charger doesnt charge it anymore. Now the battery died and I was wondering if it just needs a new charger. I got it June 2008.

I had the same problem and I found out that is definitely the battery. I had used mine only a few counted times and after 1 year the battery would not charge. I would plug it and the charge light would turn on and stayed for about 4 minutes and then turned off. I called axion and talk to customer support. The tech said that the internal batteries only last for a year whether you use the DVD or not. They would replace the battery for $60 + shipping costs. As you can see... it is not worth it....sometimes you are lucky and get good stuff for cheap but sometimes... you just get what you pay for.... and this is one of the cases. Yes, I am also very disapponted. What a piece of junk!!!! I can still watch DVD with either the charger plugged in or with the car charger. But it lost its Portable side.....

Will not charge - light goes out . We used a no name brand in car charger, and by mistake I out the poles (+ and -) the wrong way round - and since then, the charge kigth wont go on......for the in car...

Unplug and open the player's casing. Check the player for a blown fuse or a busted fusible resistor. Do a connectivity test on components along each terminal and replace if found open.

Battery wont charge.

Unfortunately, Mintek seems to have gone out of business, so there is no way to purchase replacement parts without finding them online somewhere.

The problem could be caused by one of three things:
  1. The battery is dead and cannot be recharged
  2. One of the battery connections is broken in some way
  3. The cord is bad and will not provide power
If the battery is dead, you're stuck with keeping it plugged in or trying to find a battery online. If one of the battery connections is bad, the only way to test it is with a new battery and you're back to finding one online. If the cord is bad, it wouldn't provide power at all, so it sounds like both of your cords are fine.

DO NOT continue to try to charge that battery. The company recalled those batteries because they explode or start on fire. Do a google search of "mintek" and you can read about the recall.

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!!
