Re: 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

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.

This model of DVD Player is made primarily for Walmart Stores so am Assuming you bought it there. Battery Swelling is an acid combustion issue, meaning they over-expired or over charged. Don't leave these charged for too long. Other than recommending to get the replacement that is mentioned in the original Users Manual that came with it, it's quite difficult to get a replacement. I have added a site below for walmart purchases that may be compatible with your unit.

Unfortunately, without getting an exact genuine replacement, there is a down side to the Universal Battery. They claim to hold up to 11 hrs, but the average usage is about 5 hrs constant use. So you figure instead of 4 full length movies maybe 5, you might get about 2-3 movies if you're lucky. Trial and error and user results vary obviously.

And you may wish to check with Walmart. I believe this unit had a recall on it due to faulty wiring and or battery issues that cause a fire hazard. Silver Durabrand DVD Players as well as Purple and Pink ones were recalled. I would take it back if that is where you bought it and ask them about the recall. Or check with to see any updated info.

Wish you luck.

I have a Sylvannia SDVD9000 portable DVD player. My parents bought it for my son for Christmas and we've never figured out how to charge the battery. My son has watched many movies with it plugged in,...

In order to charge the battery you must plug in the power supply AND then turn the off/on switch to OFF. You should see the blue light in front change to red. and you are now charging... Tadah

How to charge battery, is there a charger that we have lost or does it charge while on player & plugged in


The player charges, with or without playing a disc on it,

First step to charging your battery is having it plugged without playing it for a while.

There should be a light that comes on when you plug it to a power source.

When it is full, there also is another light that comes on to signify it is full.

You can also charge it while playing a DVD on it.

But if it does not charge when you plug it without playing a Disc on it, then there is a problem that need to be fixed on it.

test if the battery is charging.
  1. plug the player to a power source for some time,
  2. wait for some time for it to have charged very well,
  3. unplug it from the power source,
  4. test a disc on it to see if it will play.
if it does not play, then it means there is a problem.
which could be that the battery may be faulty.

All you have to do is to replace the battery and it will work perfectly fine again.

take care

Tru-tech protable DVD doesn't charge.

Check out or Google "Batteries Plus" they have all types of batteries for just about anything. They may be willing to open your original battery case and replace the OEM batteries with comparable batteries.

According to the manual "the LED Indicator will flash when charging the battery and will be steadily on when the battery is fully charged."

If you would like a copy of the manual, I can sell you one for $8.99 including shipping to lower 48 states. If interested, email me at
warm regards,

The manual says it should last for 2.5 hrs after being charged 3-4 hrs. I charged my used one I just bought all night and can only get 20 min out of it. But when its plugged in, its fine.

Battery for remote of PDV288

Are you sure you got the numbers right? Anyway, according to all CR Lithium battery types are 3 volts. As long as they are the same size (or very close), either should work. One may last longer than another. Which one I cannot say without knowing the mAh or Ah rating (which stands for milliamp-hours or amp-hours). If it says on the battery (or its store packaging), the higher the number, the longer its charge capability.

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!!

Charge light does not come on???

I had the same problem after buying a new dvd from bestbuy.

although this may sound wierd, but check if you have a battery in there, since its coming without it inside.

maybe you bought it without a battery.
