I agree.

One thing you can do is report it to ripoffreport.com and take some pictures of it. The media gets involved on that site from time to time. I know I was talking to them about a product line a few months ago and spoke with a consumer reported in Ohio. If you Google it by make and model number, you might be able to find out who the manufacturer is and see what the complaint area is like.

I see 9 blogs on ripoffreport.com so far.

    Here is the story on that product:



    http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/33...



    Apparently Lennox Electronics made the product and went out of business in December of 2007.



    Since the warranty can't be honored Walmart has decided to replace the product at equal or lesser value.

COPY RIGHT VIOLATION ERROR MESSAGE


It sounds like you are using unauthorized disc. If you are not using a burnt copy of a movie look in the back and see if it has a reset button. It will be very small. I hope this helps. If you want to watch burnt copies buy a cheap dvd player at wal-mart they dont have the technology to decode them.

My durabrand pdv 709 dvd player's screen went black and wont come


It sounds like you have a circuit overloading. But, is this one of the Durabrand models that have been recalled by Durabrand/Wal-Mart? They recalled most or all DVD players built since 2006 because they have a tendency to overheat and catch fire. Look into it by calling your local Wal-Mart.

Tracking control


Sounds like the remote control isn't working.  Getting support for Durabrand portable DVD players is impossible.  The company that manufactured them for Wal Mart went out of business last November.  I've heard that Wal Mart is replacing them with a unit of equal or lesser value.
There's a blog on Rip Off Report.com about it.

Durabrand DVD-1002 burned up


Wal-Mart recalls 1.5 million Durabrand DVD playershttp://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090820/ap_on_go_ot/us_recall_dvd_players

WASHINGTON – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 1.5 million Durabrand DVD players after the company said it received five reports of the products overheating, leading to fires and property damage.
No injuries have been reported, the company said.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday announced the recall of the Durabrand DVD players, which were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from January 2006 through July 2009.
The agency said it didn't immediately have the details of the property damage amounts.
The DVD players, made in China and imported by Wal-Mart, can overheat, which poses as a fire and burn hazard to consumers. Wal-Mart said it has received 12 reports of the DVD players overheating, including the five reports that resulted in fires.
The recall involves a single DVD player with a remote control. The silver-colored electronic device has a U-shaped opening at the top to insert the DVD.
The safety commission said consumers should stop using the DVD player and return it to Wal-Mart for a refund. Details: by phone at 800-925-6278; by Web at http://www.walmartstores.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

DUR-7 portable dvd player battery life?


Wal-mart does sell replacement batteries. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=2350787 For this particular unit. However; in the future I would suggest researching a particular item before buying esp from Wal-mart. As Durabrand doesn't even have a website.

Adapter plug size


Wal-Mart ectronics dept. has an "Universal DC Adapter Kit" it will have various size adapter plugs and a variable setting to adjust DC Voltage. It also should have a switch to set the polarity. I used mine to power several different devices. It was well worth the money I spent as opposed to buying a actual DC Adapter. Subsequently, the kit from Wal-Mart was far cheaper than the real deal.

Loud pop and smoke is what happens when capacitor blow off. These things happen. It doesn't mean product is dangerously defective. Faulty capacitor, or circuit board, or a power surge can cause this. If it's two months old, it's probably under manufacturer warranty, and you'd be able to get it fixed without any extra cost. Good luck.
