Unfortunately, Mintek seems to have gone out of business, so there is no way to purchase replacement parts without finding them online somewhere.

The problem could be caused by one of three things:

  1. The battery is dead and cannot be recharged
  2. One of the battery connections is broken in some way
  3. The cord is bad and will not provide power
If the battery is dead, you're stuck with keeping it plugged in or trying to find a battery online. If one of the battery connections is bad, the only way to test it is with a new battery and you're back to finding one online. If the cord is bad, it wouldn't provide power at all, so it sounds like both of your cords are fine.

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

Fisher price dvd player - Need instruction manual


Check the Fisher Price website for an instruction manual. My daughter has one and when you plug it in and the red light is blinking that means the battery is charging. It has a battery pack inside (not removeable) that needs to be charged for 8 hours before the first use, but I'm guessing yours is used, so just let it charge until the light goes off.

Can't seem to get my dvd player to charge.


I have this model dvd player and it has worked very well for over a year. Lately it has not had a picture but has had sound when fully charged. When the green light is on, it is charging. When the light goes off, it is fully charged (or should be). I plugged the wall charger directly into the dvd player and it works fine with pic and sound. I think maybe the rechargable battery is on it last legs. I am looking for a longer cig lighter charger cord to reach the headrest so kids can watch from backseat. I will be able to keep it plugged in to charger at all times. Hope this helps!

Need help charging my mintek dvd player battery


The way the battery is usually charged is by plugging it into the player and plugging the player into the a/c outlet. Do not use the player, Just allow the player to charge the battery. The way you tell if the charging is working is the light on the front will usually be a red color and it will be steady color or blinking while charging. When the battery is fully charged, the light will turn green or turn off . This lets you know that the battery has fully charged.To test this try using the dvd player on the battery only. Play a dvd or cd and see if the battery is working properly. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

If the battery is not charging but the player works on AC power then yes you need a new battery. I can possibly help you with that if you give me the make and model # of your player.

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.
