Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I have a Hitachi Portable DVD Player and the power is running low on the battery, when i try to plug in the power lead to recharge or run on the mains nothing happens, when i last used a few days ago all was ok and charging light lit up and battery was charged, now i plug the power lead in and i am told battery is low and nothing happens, can you please help?
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.

SOURCE: Won't charge
Does anyone know the warranty on this product? We should file a class action suit because obviously we are all having the same problem with the charger and they must know about it. Mine is only a couple months old and used sparingly - now its dead. I called Audiovox at 800-645-4994 and went thru automated hell to speak with someone. They referred me to www.18002526123.com which sells parts (chargers) for the DVD player. That is totally bogus - they sell a bad product then want me to flip the bill to get it repaired. I don't think so.

Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged so many times. They begin to slowly lose their capacity after about the first 5 charges until ultimately it won't hold a charge anymore. It appears that this is your problem. Look for a model number on the battery & do a Google search for it if you want to try & replace it. You might also find it is cheaper to buy a whole new DVD player than it is to buy a replacement battery.
