Question about Accurian 16-680 Portable DVD Player
Probably. Look on the charger for the output voltage and current rating. Unless the charge uses a proprietary connector, you can use any charger with the same voltage and a current at least as much as the original. The connector on the chargers must match. The three important dimensions are the outside diameter of the metal barrel, the inside diameter, and the length. If the barrel is too short, it may not properly activate the battery charge switch in the jack. If it is too long, it sticks out and is more likely to break something if it gets hit while plugged in.
Radio Shack has some of the more common models. Many electronic parts houses carry them also (Digi-Key, Jameco, MCM Electronics and Mouser provide good service over the Internet).
If you know the cable is still good near the transformer end, you can get a replacement cable and do a splice with solder and heat shrink tubing or crimp-type **** splices. Don't mess with "twist and tape" bare wire splicing - it's not reliable. If you go this route, you must make sure you connect the wires correctly; otherwise it will not work and may damage the player. Usually the inside of the barrel is connected to the + output of the transformer and the outside is then the - terminal. This is often marked on the transformer together with the voltage and current rating (look for a dot inside a "C" with lines going to "+" and "-"). If the output is AC, then there is no difference.
