    The same thing happened to me. I've been unable to find a battery replacement

    my battery did the same thing and i called spectron and was told a new battery would be 80.00. i think it should be replaced for free because of a defect in the battery. if anyone resolves this problem please let me know

    Same problem, Spectron PDV 700 battery casing swelled and opened up, thank God, the lithium cells did not burst or catch fire. Others had the same problem and the manufacturer should replace these batteries free of cost. I think the Consumer Review people should make a note and add this problem to their reviews.

    this happened to us while our kids were in the back seat watching it on our road trip in california. this is clearly a manufacture defect. -chris posted 9-17-08 how is spectroniq tech dept? I assuming their avoiding the problem. We got this unit free when we signed up for Direct TV.

  • sxsxqw Sep 22, 2008

    well mine did the same thing, their should be a law against selling defective batteries and force these companies to replace free of cost to the consumer if a certain amount of complaints about the same thing occurs. This is unexceptable and I will not buy or use their products again, I suggest everyone having this same issue to write a letter and let them know they will not get your money again.

    I have the same thing from a DirectTV offer, which included the SpectronIQ PDV-700. I was recharging the unit and the next thing I know is that it is no longer sitting flat. Upon further inspection the battery case overheated and expanded-no leak in the battery - praise God!

    yup mine too. Such junk i signed up for directv as well. At least the dish has been hassle free for the last year

The battery on mine swelled and burst open, too. I can't find a replacement. I wonder if it "exploded" because I set it too near the television and it overheated.

Where can i buy charger and ac adapter or battery charger for Spectroniq PDV-70x


Power adapters for most electronic devices can usually be readily found on EBay for a reasonable price.

Here is a direct link to an AC power adapter for that model currently available for around $16 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-AC-power-adapter-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-player-/250823360167?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a663cbea7



And here is a link to a 12V Car power adapter for that model as well currently available for around $13 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Adapter-Power-Cord-4-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-Player-/110734902621?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c850855d


Just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.


Just search for the term: PDV-70x in the EBay search box and you will see many items available for various prices. Just find the one you want at the best price, order it online, and have it delivered right to you. Just be sure to consider and include the different shipping charges to your location which are listed just below the asking price of the items.


I hope this was helpful.


Good luck and take care.

I NEED A BATTERY FOR MY PORTABLE DVD PLAYER MADE BY SPECTRONIQ


You will have to purchase a replacement battery from the manufacture or their authorized parts distributor. Don't waste time looking in electronics stores, because you won't find it there.
