When is the battery charged?

There isn't anything in the instructions that explains this. Is it when the red light on the battery turns green? Does it turn green? Will the red light go out? Thanks!

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

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.

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.

Charge battery for zenith dvp615


michelle,

not so familiar with this model but try this:

1) Plug your power adaptor to main unit
2) locate "power on" switch and change it to "off"

after doing this steps you will see a red light which means the unit is charging.

note: for some portable player once the charging is complete this red light changes color either orange or green which means the battery already full charge. but it is adviceable to charge battery for atleast 2hrs.

cheers,
mark

Battery not holding charge


I had the exact problem as the other two above but resolved the situation as follows: I connected the battery to the charger and switched the power on. The charge light on the battery glowed 'red' as it should and some time later, not as long as it should have been, the light changed to 'green' indicating it was fully charged. At this point I removed the charge lead from the battery and then replacedit. The charge light reverted to 'red' again. When it eventually changed to 'green' I repeated the above step and did so for the next 18 hours. I then connected the battery to the player and played a dvd 1hr 55min film. It worked fine. I hope the solution works for yuo!!

CHARGING


Lulu1121 and guest, red means no charge and will remain red till its fully charge. Then it will turn to green. In fact, coby battery can be charge directly without the whole unit attached. But if on charge too long and still red, battery is dead, kaput, finish. some even show evidence when the casing is swollen...gel chemicals inside is swollen. The power supply that came with it is the only way you can use it...portability is out of the question.

Good Luck

The second question, I couldnt work that one out at first, but now i think I understand. If you plug the player into the mains, turn it on, red light shows. Light turns green when battery charged. Do not use until light turns green (if plugged into mains). In other words dont use the player while the battery is charging. If it isnt plugged into the mains then the battery cant be charging and you can use. Until battery gets too low :)

Charge light does not come on???


I had the same problem after buying a new dvd from bestbuy.

although this may sound wierd, but check if you have a battery in there, since its coming without it inside.

maybe you bought it without a battery.
