Question about leaving the AC adapter plugged in to the dvd player and the wall


There is no hazard if the unit is a name brand and the batteries are OEM. It might get warm and the battery life is shorter over time but there is no reason to worry about fire etc.

We need information on how to repair the battery pack for the audiovox vbp800 portable dvd player with screen


Batteries are not repaired (it is dangerous to open a battery yourself).
I suggest checking a battery refill company online. These companies are equipped to replace the chemicals inside your existing battery or might sell you a refilled battery, if yours is damaged. This is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than buying a new battery.

Tray seems to be out of alignment


I removed the Li ion battery pack from the base of the unit. It had swollen severely and was actually distorting the main unit itself.
I subsequently found out that this battery pack had been recalled four years ago for dangerous swelling and potential for explosion.
I stuck the battery pack in the garage and will recycle it.

Thanks!

I HAVE A MINTEK 5" (I THINK ) DVD PLAYER MODEL#5860....I CANT GET THE BATTERY OFF THE TOP OF THE UNIT....I RECIEVED NO INSTRUCTION BOOK(BOUGHT ON E-BAY)AND I NEED YER HELP.....THXS


I bought one at Best Buy for my daughter a few years ago. I'm glad I bought a psp for it to replace the battery.

They haven't had a good reputation. The consumer product safety comission recalled a battery from a unit they made three years ago after reports of it catching on fire. It was a different model than the one you have.

The model number should be a an MDP-5860.

Here is a source for batteries and power supplies for that model

Mintek 8" TFT portable dvd player MDP1810


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.

CHARGING


Lulu1121 and guest, red means no charge and will remain red till its fully charge. Then it will turn to green. In fact, coby battery can be charge directly without the whole unit attached. But if on charge too long and still red, battery is dead, kaput, finish. some even show evidence when the casing is swollen...gel chemicals inside is swollen. The power supply that came with it is the only way you can use it...portability is out of the question.

Good Luck
