Question about Televison & Video

Portable DVD player

The player will not operate properly using the supplied car power cable but operates perfectly using the home power lead. I have used an inverter in the car and plugged the home power lead into this, this method works. Could you provide a possible solution why the car power lead will not work.

I've overcome the problem by using an inverter thus enabling me to use the mains power adapter in the car. An observation: The lead for the in car adapter is 24 AWD and the power adapter is 20 AWD, would the in car adapter work if the lead was also 20 AWD?

Hello, You are doing it right! the battery should be charged with in the 24 hour period. There are two things to consider : One, is the possibility that the rechargeable battery has dried(due to wear and tear)and is not accepting the charge or The second possibility is that the power supply isn't working properly, therefore, not charging the battery.
It is possible to know at least if one of the two is working just by operating the DVD player while connected with the AC adapter. Turn the DVD on and play a disc, if the unit operates, this eliminates a defective power supply and only leaves a defective battery pack, if it doesn't work than consider the power supply defective and repairs are due. As to where to buy a replacement part is for someone else to answer. Good luck!

Try cleaning the dvd compartment of all dust and debris with a can of compressed air. Check and make sure all the dust and debris is cleared of the laser transport and lens. Use cotton swabs and small amount of isopropyl alcohol to clean off the laser lens and tracks and gears of the transport . Use a cotton swab with a small amount of alcohol on the tip to clean the laser lens. Rub the swab gently across the lens, until it appear bright and shines. Use the other side of the swab to remove any excess moisture from the lens. Use cotton swabs to clean the rails and gear of transport. Applie small amounts of alcohol to the tips to loosen caked on dust or dirt. Use compressed air again to clear the dust and debris from transport area. After the through cleaning. Try the player again, using a dvd to see if the operation returns to normal. If not, try resetting the dvd player to factory setting. You can do this using the on screen menu to go into the settings.

Now try using a dvd to test the player to see if it operates normally. If it does not play normally, you may have a proplem with the spindel, check it to make sure its is making good contact with motor, if it appears loose, applie a drop of super glue to snug up the grip. After it dries completely. Test the player again with a dvd. If the unit still fails to operate normally, you may be having problems with either the drive motor or the power supply circuits. For these problems you need to contact a service center. They will have all the service information to troubleshoot these problems properly.

Battery won't charge


Borrow or get a cheap volt meter to see if the power supply is working. Insert one probe on the inside, and one on the outside to see what is going on inside the power supply/charger.
Does the power supply hum or get warm? If not, it was probably made pre-broken at the factory in china. Either that or it's power lead has a break, it's power output jack or where it connects to the main board on your portable DVD player.

Salutations jwatts325,

There are specific models that have auxillary monitors that will be powered from the main unit. Unfortunately if its not configured with an auxiliary unit there isn't a way to chain two portable units together.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Screen is dark


If it uses the same technology as a laptop screen, there is 2 backlights behind the screen, they are like very thin fluorescent tubes (cold cathode) and there is a power supply that these use. It may have gone out like many PC's bad displays. I think it is due for replacement or an operation if you are skilled enough. Might just be an unseated ribbon cable which can be fixed by yourself.
