Re: Battery Charging

Perhaps one of the contact pins are slightly bent, best to remove the power lead from the wall, grab a magnifying glass ... and have a closer look.

A bent pin will appear to be out of line with the others.

The connector may also be worn in such a way that it will not make contact... no matter which way hold your tongue. :)
Take extra care when straightening the pin or pins.

Also a worn connector can build up a type of scum on the surface of the pin or pins, otherwise known as oxisidisation and corrosion or in simple terms ... RUST !
Carefully clean the pins with a Q tip dipped in methylated spirits and allow 5-10 minutes to dry, before reconnecting the charger to the DVD player.

The other possibility remains that the battery or charger may also be past it's used by date and may need to be replaced.

DUR-7 charging problem

Are you sure it is not the charger itself at fault here?

If you have or know someone with a multimeter get them to check if any voltage is present on the charger plug of the cord. Batteries do not suddenly stop they usually give less and less time in uptime mode before they finally stop altogether. I would suspect the charger or charging circuit.yes it can be fixed

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Need help charging my mintek dvd player battery

The way the battery is usually charged is by plugging it into the player and plugging the player into the a/c outlet. Do not use the player, Just allow the player to charge the battery. The way you tell if the charging is working is the light on the front will usually be a red color and it will be steady color or blinking while charging. When the battery is fully charged, the light will turn green or turn off . This lets you know that the battery has fully charged.To test this try using the dvd player on the battery only. Play a dvd or cd and see if the battery is working properly. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

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.

DUR-7 portable dvd player battery life?

Wal-mart does sell replacement batteries. For this particular unit. However; in the future I would suggest researching a particular item before buying esp from Wal-mart. As Durabrand doesn't even have a website.

Battery not charging

Try connecting the Adaptor directly to the battery and charge it for 4-5 hrs and that should work...

Hi Phylis, You don't mention the plug-in battery pack which slots into the 4 pin socket on the back of the player. If you don't have the battery pack it will only play when plugged in. Peter
