The manual says it should last for 2.5 hrs after being charged 3-4 hrs. I charged my used one I just bought all night and can only get 20 min out of it. But when its plugged in, its fine.

Charged battery only lasts 30 minutes


Try fully draining the battery and recharging it fully. If that does not work chances are the battery is going bad. How old is the dvd player ? If its still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement.

Battery won't charge


A couple of things could be the problem.
A special circuit detects when the battery needs charging, it is suppose to charge the battery, that could be bad.Sometimes, a special circuit charges the battery WHILE playing the movie.
The battery could be 'dead' not charging and the same circuit tells it to bypass charging and go directly to turning on the set.
If you got it from a person that has the knowledge, they could have bypass the charging circuit and wired it to just turn on.
You did not say that you got it new and in 'charging ' working order.
Usually the batteries have to be replaced after a number of charging. [you did not say how long you had the machine.
If you know how to do it, replace the batteries. If not get someone to do the job.The cost of batteries and labor.

When is the battery charged?


these small dvd player are built with less options

normally with cheap batteries, so usually it will turn green when fully charge or even turn off. hard to say. but since it cheap batteries, it probably wont do anything at all.

i would charge it for 10-14 hours then unplug the device.
the battery will get hot, and then the device will no longer work after over charging the player.

so charge for 10-14 hour only UNPLUG the player
play til it dies then start process all over again.

if you find that the battery is dying faster and faster then you have a cheap battery

theres no easy fix for this, some battery cannot be interchanged
when buying something make sure you can exchange the battery like a laptop. this way if the battery is overly charge it doesnt leak into the player.

or into the device

HELP!!! my portable DVD player isn't charging correctly


If it is under warranty, then try to get another battery from the company or you can get another battery yourseld on ebay like item number 250261738286. When rechargeable battery operated devices act like this, it is most likely due to a battery that just does not charge to full capacity because it is old (I did take not that you mentioned that it is fairly new) or just bad. Let us know know how it goes.

Panasonic DVD-LS80


I have the LS91 model and it tells you in the instructions what you need to do to get the extra time. Essentially you need to reduce the brightness to -5. This dulls the picture but if you are in a low lit room then it's no problem. To do this for this model you hit monitor mode twice and then reduce the brightness.

Hi Phylis, You don't mention the plug-in battery pack which slots into the 4 pin socket on the back of the player. If you don't have the battery pack it will only play when plugged in. Peter
