Question about Mintek MDP-1060 10.2-in 16:9 Portable DVD/CD Player Headphones&Case Included

Difficulty Recharging Battery

When I plug the AC adaptor into the DC IN, the power on/charge indicator lights. The battery would charge normally, with the light going off once the battery is recharged. Now, however, the battery is not recharging. When I move (jiggle) adaptor plug in DC IN socket, the power on/charge indicator light will flicker. If I put some slight tension on the adaptor cord (e.g., be stretching the power cord over the top of the player and pushing the cord into the area on the top left of player where the hinge is), there was a period where I could get the battery to recharge but this no longer seems to be the case. My suspicion is the the DC IN part has a loose connection or partial short inside the player (e.g., repairing the problem may only require making sure the connection inside is properly soldered). I tried to contact Mintek about the problem and found they've gone out of business. Have you had reports of this kind of problem w/ battery not recharging because of a loose connection between the DC IN part and what it connects to inside the player? Do I need a replacement part, or just open the player (myself?) and make sure a connection is properly soldered? Or should I take the player to a local electronics repair shop? If I can provide more info to help you diagnose the problem and identify a solution, please advise. Other than this the play works fine (other than, when battery is de-charged, I need to manually hold the adaptor plug in just the right position for the player to keep playing). Thanks, Kerry

I've seen a similar problem with a friend's laptop, he could plug it in and use the laptop but it would not recharge the battery.

The problem we found after opening it up was that a piece of metal had broken and all it took was a quick solder of it and it was solved. If that's not it then good luck but I believe you are right in your thinking. It's probably just a thin piece of metal that snapped from who knows what. My friend accidentally had his dog step on it I believe and it broke but it doesn't sound like a hard problem to fix. Good luck with it and let me know if my solution doesn't work.

Hi this is a common problem with most devices of this type expecially mobile phones what you can do is buy a new adaptor you can buy multi adaptors that you can change the voltage and come with different connectors you can fit onto the end.
You can buy these from most diy shops and are cheap to buy.
If you cant buy one then what i did but im not advising you to is strip back the wires from the outer case where the adaptor is and resolder them onto the adaptor as they split and short not allowing you to charge.
The problem is going to be with the adaptor and not the device i would suggest buy a multi adaptor take yours with you so you get the right one and ask staff to check for you as you dont want to damage your equipment this is the best option for you

  • paul proctor Mar 22, 2008

    As the battery light is flickering then it is going to be the lead is failing causing a short between the wires causing it stop charging.
    Its best not to try using it as it can cause damage to your equipment and even the battery so i would goto a diy shop and buy an adaptor that you can change the voltage on i have had to buy these before for things like psp and playstation2 so i know they work just remember to get right voltage and right amp as this can cause problem but the staff should point you in the right direction

  • paul proctor Mar 22, 2008

    If you read the voltage and amps of the mains adaptor ill have a look for you and tell you the best one to use as buying an original can take time and also be expensive but a multi one can be cheap to buy and just as reliable

This type of connectors become loose easily because of all the plug ins that take place to recharge the battery.
I would suggest to open the device, but be very careful when doing it and check for a loose solder joint just where the DC IN is solder on your device.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

You need to change the battery, not the adapter

Posted on Mar 22, 2008

    If the power on/charge indicator lights then the power adapter is fine. when you moved adaptor plug in DC IN socket, causing the power on/charge
    indicator light to flicker you were creating a short inside your dvd. By accident this used to deliver in some way some charge to the battery, but at same time you were risking all the time to blow your device.
    Before opening the device to eventually solder the ac adapter connector you should test if power is getting to the battery to recharge it. Do this with a multimeter tester or using a replacement battery.
    Only after this you open the machine and try fixing problems on the inside board.
    The adaptor is soldered to the board by four contacts, when one contact is faulty the unit will not power up.
    If it is not the battery itself, it is most likely a contact going to the battery charge that is interrupted. Probably you caused a short that in some way connected it back whilst pulling the power cable.
    I suggest testing the battery contacts(the ones inside dvd battery box, with no battery inside), or trying a replacement battery.
    If the above does not work I suggest to bring it to a service centre.

    regards

    Here is a price list for multimeter/tester.
    Cheap ones cost around $10, they are still ok for your needs.
    Apply it to power adapter male connector (the one on power adapter cable. If power is coming out with same voltage as specs on sticker then your power adaptor is fine, do not change it.
    Do the same with contacts inside battery box and power adapter plugged, if you have power over there, then it is the battery for sure.

    If it is none of the two above then may be the female power connector on the Device, as you suspected, or some other problem inside.

    regards

No problem just bought a mpd-1760 from someone its brand new never even been used ,but no instructions/need to know how long to charge battery for first time or at all //charging time for battery to watch...


Hello,
To charge the battery back you want to
  1. Turn the power off the DVD player first as the battery pack will not charge with the power on.
  2. Attach the battery pack to the player.
  3. Connect the AC power adapter and the power cord to the player.
  4. Charging will now start and the Power/Charge indicator should now be orange.
  5. Do not unhook either cord until the Power/Charge turns off.
  6. Time of charging is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
  7. The battery pack will more than likely get warm while charging. This is normal. Keep it as much in the open as you can for the best ventilation possible.
  8. You will get a low power indicator on the screen when the battery has a low charge.

As for playback time you will get about 2 1/3 hours of actual playback and about 4 hours of standby with the DVD player actually on.
Regards, Tony

1)If you have a friend or know someone who have basic knowledge with electronics better ask that person to check your charging adaptor ( AC to DC adaptor) In the adaptor itself it indicates the DC voltage output it produced(ex. 3V / 4.5V / 8.5V /12 V )

2) if you don't know someone having knowledge with electronics, check the Voltage specs. of your adaptor , voltage polarity and the Dc jack size. You can alternatively purchase adaptor having the same specs.,polarityand dc jack size in a cheaper price.It's also adviceable to carry with you ,your portable player upon purchasing new adaptor so you can actually see if you have problem with the adaptor itself or the player does.

cheers.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery
