    I have the same problem. Absolutely no power at all. This was purchased for my son as a christmas gift in December 2007. Worked fine for a while and now does not work at all.

No Power?

see the cause and fix it : God bless you
  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
  2. Check if the main power has been switched on.

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...

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.

No power

I have a friend that had the same problem, I opened the machine and found that the fuse had blown. Took a small piece of wire and just touched it, very brief, and every thing came on, just breifly to test, not prolonged because you don't the rated fuse for that part, I now know what is the problem, I just have to get the fuse and souder it in.

Battery wont charge.

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.

Battery pack charge

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...

Have no manual

It sounds like a bad power cord. Check your cord to make sure there are no kinks or breaks in it. I have that problem where my cat chewed the cord and now the unit cannot charge properly. Additionally, check to make certain the battery is seated properly. Try cleaning the contact with an Q-tip dipped in alcohol. Once you have done that, leave the unit powered off and see if you get the red charge light. If not, you probably have a bad cord.

My DVD player does not charge!

I think you mean the "charge/power" light doesn't come on? One thing I've noticed on the PD-758LP I have, is that the power connector on the back of the player is none too good, my DVD player quits if the cable isn't set just...right... Try moving the power cable around on the back and see if it lights-up briefly. I suspect problems with that connector first.
