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
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.

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.
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!
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.
follow directions from the owners manual. while unit is powered up, unplug power cord from back of unit - wait 5-seconds. Depress the DVD open/close button while re-plugging the power supply cord to the unit. LG splash appears onscreen and unit goes into re-set. you do not loose any of you programing or settings.
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!
