Hi XX,

With the indulgence of XX..

The only possible reason why the unit will not work (on the AC adapter) without the battery is that the AC adapter cannot supply all the power requirements/demands of the DVD player.

It could be under powered, not an exact substitute/replacement, or something is wrong inside the AC adapter such as a regulator or a capacitor.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back with the brand and model of the DVD player, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Mintek portable DVD player's battery will not charge. I have rarely used the battery so I can't believe the battery is dead. The AC cord works to power it when plugged in. Why won't it...


After a while even rechargeable batteries loose the ability to hold a charge. This process accelerates when the battery is allowed to lie completely discharged for long periods of time. NiCad batteries especially have this issue. If you left the battery sitting for long periods without occasionally charging it, it losses the ability to hold a charge. It appears you are going to have to either do without the battery or replace the pack. I would take out the old one, it will eventually start to corrode and leak and if its still in your machine it will cause damage. If you get a new battery pack make sure you charge it fully and then depleat it completely before recharging it. hope this helps.

I believe it can play ought right from AC without battery attached. In fact always playing it with battery AND AC could overcharge and kill the battery before its time.
Enjoy your player

Check the leads of the remote where the batteries are inserted. Sometimes the leads corrode that causes a non-contact. Scratch it using a smooth sandpaper or even a utility knife to erase the corroded part.

Hope it will work.

How to charge battery, is there a charger that we have lost or does it charge while on player & plugged in


Hello,

The player charges, with or without playing a disc on it,

First step to charging your battery is having it plugged without playing it for a while.

There should be a light that comes on when you plug it to a power source.

When it is full, there also is another light that comes on to signify it is full.

You can also charge it while playing a DVD on it.

But if it does not charge when you plug it without playing a Disc on it, then there is a problem that need to be fixed on it.

test if the battery is charging.
  1. plug the player to a power source for some time,
  2. wait for some time for it to have charged very well,
  3. unplug it from the power source,
  4. test a disc on it to see if it will play.
if it does not play, then it means there is a problem.
which could be that the battery may be faulty.

All you have to do is to replace the battery and it will work perfectly fine again.

take care

The battery died. Can I purchase a new one can I use my portable dvd player without a battery?


hello,

you can purchase a new battery from an electronic shop close to you.

try to charge the battery for a while, then test it if it will work without being plugged to a power supply.

you can also use you audiovox PV33116 player without the battery, but you should take note that as soon as the power supply goes off, the player goes off too.

so it is advisable for you to get a new battery.

take care.

If the battery needs replacing will the unit still work with the charger?


Hello,

the answer is yes. The battery is there in case there no charger, but since there is charger, the player will definitely work even without the battery.

Good luck.

Hello... I have a Polaroid 7" portable DVD player that works off the ac, however, battery doesn't charge. Does battery need replacing?


No way to separate the battery condition from a problem with the charging circuit without making a measurement or two.
