Re: Unit will not charge

Usually what happens is the power jack the cord plugs into is broken its solder joints. The manufacturers usually break the first rule of soldering which is to not rely on the soldering for mechanical strength.
If you feel up to totally dissassembling your unit to get at the bottom side of the circuit board, all you have to do is an easy resolder of the power jack.

I plug in my DVD player and I get nothing, not even the power light comes on....

You have a power supply problem, if the cord is detachable from the player make sure it is snug tight, next pull the cover off and follow the cord to the power supply board to see if the fuse is blown, the other thing I come across is a bad capacitor near power transistor but this will require some technical know how. One final thought, check your unit on another wall receptacle.

How do I recharge the battery? This is a portable DVD player with a battery pack and the instructions say recharge battery before useing, so I put the battery in place and plug in the power cord and left...

Hello, You are doing it right! the battery should be charged with in the 24 hour period. There are two things to consider : One, is the possibility that the rechargeable battery has dried(due to wear and tear)and is not accepting the charge or The second possibility is that the power supply isn't working properly, therefore, not charging the battery.
It is possible to know at least if one of the two is working just by operating the DVD player while connected with the AC adapter. Turn the DVD on and play a disc, if the unit operates, this eliminates a defective power supply and only leaves a defective battery pack, if it doesn't work than consider the power supply defective and repairs are due. As to where to buy a replacement part is for someone else to answer. Good luck!

Won't turn on.

"Player is getting power. (It's) making a faint sound and the output jack is flashing but shows nothing on the display"

So, it is obviously NOT 1, 2, or 3 above. It IS getting power.

The first thing I'd try is a re-boot, try unplugging the unit and waiting about

No power no responce from unit fuse and cord are good

Check to make sure that your power supply printed circuit board is getting power from the wall socket and if so, check for any blown components, most likely a capacitor on the power supply circuit board. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Ac Adaptor does not charge DVD Player

I am well aware of what you are experiencing with your DVD player power connection. What has happened is that the power connector on the back of the unit is actually mounted on a circuit board by soldering connection tips. Unfortunatly it is not the best design because after the power cord has been plugged in and removed a few times it weakens and loosed these soldered tips and it nolonger has a good connection on the board. Short of removing the board and re-soldering the connection there is little else that can be done. Your expertise with a soldering gun depends as to whether or not you are successful in re-establishing the connection. It seems to me that if it is re-soldered, then it is just a matter of time before it breaks loose again and the board will damage after so many breaks. What I have done to repair this is to try and find a female connector like the one mounted to the board except find on that is on a cord instead. Solder the wire in the cable to the board and attact the cable to the case in a fashion that when the wire is being connected for charging that it won't pull the soldered connections out of the board. Sure, you will have a short piece of wire hanging from the rear of the unit, but this way you won't have to be concerned with the cable detaching and loosing your ability to use the unit with an AC adaptor or for charging the battery. I hope you can find a remedy for this that works. If you stumble across a better Idea Please let me know. best of luck!

Battery charge

Simply plug the included power cord into the power input on the DVD player. Leave the unit "off". Allow to build a charge. The included power supply items are:

Flexible power supply: up to 2.5 hours rechargeable Li-ion battery,

12volt car cigarette lighter adapter and AC/DC power adapter

The battery will not charge. The player was bought 10 mnths ago

Test the voltage at the end of the power supply cord. perhaps the cord is broken or the power supply is dead. The output voltage should be listed on the adapter or by the DC input jack on the unit.
