Question about Durabrand DUR7 Portable DVD Player
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.
