  • Nick2448 Jan 31, 2009

    It used to work great and play a whole dvd.

    Now when i put in a dvd ,even if its fully charged

    it plays for like 10-20 mins then it turns of.It still works however.

    Why did protron make such a short lasting PORTABLE DVD PLAYER?

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

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.
