Re: Powering On and Charging

I have the same exact problem with my DVD player. I might just end up getting a new battery if anything.

Faulty dvd player sold by croma, malad west. withing 2 weeks of the purchase the dvd player stopped working. DVP5996K is the product number. The service center people came home and took the player, for 1...

take it to the retailer and simply demand a new one, or that they contact the authorised reapir agent, ive worked for LG, Teac, Sanyo, Sony, AWA, Pebble Electronics, DSE, and always, when it got to desperate measures, simply go to place of purchase with receipt and explain situation. Good luck.

HELP!!! my portable DVD player isn't charging correctly

If it is under warranty, then try to get another battery from the company or you can get another battery yourseld on ebay like item number 250261738286. When rechargeable battery operated devices act like this, it is most likely due to a battery that just does not charge to full capacity because it is old (I did take not that you mentioned that it is fairly new) or just bad. Let us know know how it goes.

I have the same problem after abt 4 months. I found that If it get hot It works. It looks like some broken electrolytical capacitor, but unsure. It worked in this way about next 6 months. But now stops. I've replaced all electrolytical capacitors in power supply (cost abt 100 CZK = 5 USD) and now it works in the same way as after 4 months, it works only if it is hot. In my opinion there is still some cappacitor that must be replaced somewhere in the control board, but I dont now where. Next step I'd like to do is to buy freeze spray and try to find where is the rest of the problem. It should not be so hard to find it. I dont know if it is outside the power supply. I am also thinking about following mod. Remove the original power supply and use ordinary PC ATX power supply. It looks like it has the same singals, so it should work. In my opinion, theese problems are caused by the power supply.
