Question about Protron PDV-288 7" LCD Portable DVD Player

Battery pack charge

Mine didn't come with instructions on how to charge the battery that attaches to the bottom. I have tried putting the battery on and plugging in the player overnight but when I unplug the power cord the battery isnt working. The charge light kinda tries to light up but nothing. How do I charge up the battery?

From your description, it sounds like a bad battery pack. You may find it hard to locate one, maybe check on Ebay every once in a while, or take the pack apart and see what kind of cells are in it.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but replacing the pack will probably fix it.

Hope that helps...

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

How do I recharge the battery? This is a portable DVD player with a battery pack and the instructions say recharge battery before useing, so I put the battery in place and plug in the power cord and left...


Hello, You are doing it right! the battery should be charged with in the 24 hour period. There are two things to consider : One, is the possibility that the rechargeable battery has dried(due to wear and tear)and is not accepting the charge or The second possibility is that the power supply isn't working properly, therefore, not charging the battery.
It is possible to know at least if one of the two is working just by operating the DVD player while connected with the AC adapter. Turn the DVD on and play a disc, if the unit operates, this eliminates a defective power supply and only leaves a defective battery pack, if it doesn't work than consider the power supply defective and repairs are due. As to where to buy a replacement part is for someone else to answer. Good luck!

The battery does not charge


My mother has one of these units, it was working fine until recently I took it to play with it, and found the same problem you describe. The unit works with the power supply (what some people call the "cord") attached directly to the unit, it works through the connector on the power pack itself, but the LED on the battery is not on as used to. I opened the battery pack and found it has an electronic board close to the power connectors, that board might be defective now, yours might be have the same problem. I'm an electronics tech, but I can't fix that board with surface-mount compontens.

Solution: Contact Haier to see if you can purchase the battery pack. In my case I could replace the internal charging board, if they sell it separate, which I doubt but never hurts try contact the factory.

CHARGING FAULT


hi friend,
step 1
Make sure you have all of the accessories. Some phones need special adapters for charging. If you're having problems fitting the charger into your cigarette lighter socket, check with your cell phone company. You may need an adapter ring.
  • Step 2 Find the right battery. Certain phones can only be used with batteries from the same company. If you are using a counterfeit battery, be aware that you may not be able to charge it with your current set up.
  • Step 3 Read the manual. Something as simple as charging a battery may take specific instructions. For example, some cell batteries need to be charged immediately while others come fully charged.
  • Step 4 Use your charger. Most cell phone chargers are easy to use plugging right into your phone and home outlet or car electrical cigarette socket. Read your manual on specific steps needed for charging your phone.
  • Step 5 Try Cellboosts. These convenient devices are disposable battery packs that plug into your phone, charging it when the charger isn't accessible. Cellboosts usually last for an hour and are not compatible with all cell phones.
  • Step 6 Go solar. This innovation allows you to charge your phone wherever there is light. Just attach your cell to a portable adapter and let the light do the rest
  • hope this helps u

    the battery pack is charging but not holding charge beacause it was not used for a long time as you said.try to recharge and completely drain the batteries a couple of times and the batteries should start holding better the charge.Another thing you may want to check is if there is power coming out at teh battery pack connectors(you will need a small volt meter)

    Battery cahrger


    The battery should be attached to the bottom of the player. It may also have it's own DC port to plug the charger into. Some players charge back through the player itself but Polaroid made batteries that have to be detached from the player and connected to the charger. Remember, unless tou have a battery on both units, one battery alone is not designed to power both screens, that is what the car adapter is for.

    My Brand new never used Curtis dvd 8017


    Give it a about 24 hours. It might need to declimatize. Also, thry charging the battery pack first and/or try turning it on with the power adapter only (battery pack off the unit). If this does nothing, they to get or borrow a voltmeter to make sure the power adapter is giving out a votage. This will troubleshoot wether it is the unit or the adapter. Let us know how it went.

    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
