Question about Polaroid PDM-0723 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

PDM-0723 won't recharge batteries. HELP!

No problems with DVD player for 2 yrs until it stopped charging the battery and we couldn't use it unless it was plugged in. I figured the battery was toast and I bought a new battery through Polaroid. It comes in the mail, we test it, and it also won't charge, so it's not the batteries. I hooked up the AC cord to another item and it gave it power, so I think it's something internal. Any suggestions out there?? Thank you!!

Hello,
Try cleaning the batter contacts with a pencil eraser, sometimes they build up a residue that prevents good contact between the battery and the system. If that does not work the problem is either in the rectifier circuits or one of the many small transistors on the board. A rectifier circuit is made up of diodes and it's main purpose is to change AC current to DC current as that is the type of electrical current all electronics work off of. The transistors act as switches with special purposes and properties. The proper way to test these components is to remove them from the circuit and test them with a multi-meter. The bad news is you will have to have a qualified technician to do this, so that means a trip to the repair shop. Hope this give you some idea of what might be going on.

The plugin on the side of the player is loose I have to keep pushing on it til I get it in the right position before it will charge. Can this be fixed?


Usually. Most of the time it is just broken solder connections on the jack. Just a matter of taking the board out and repairing those connections.

DC2017 PORTABLE DVD PLAYER WILL NOT CHARGE


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

How to charge battery, is there a charger that we have lost or does it charge while on player & plugged in


Hello,

The player charges, with or without playing a disc on it,

First step to charging your battery is having it plugged without playing it for a while.

There should be a light that comes on when you plug it to a power source.

When it is full, there also is another light that comes on to signify it is full.

You can also charge it while playing a DVD on it.

But if it does not charge when you plug it without playing a Disc on it, then there is a problem that need to be fixed on it.

test if the battery is charging.
  1. plug the player to a power source for some time,
  2. wait for some time for it to have charged very well,
  3. unplug it from the power source,
  4. test a disc on it to see if it will play.
if it does not play, then it means there is a problem.
which could be that the battery may be faulty.

All you have to do is to replace the battery and it will work perfectly fine again.

take care

My Portable DVD Player Battery can't hold a charge


Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged so many times. They begin to slowly lose their capacity after about the first 5 charges until ultimately it won't hold a charge anymore. It appears that this is your problem. Look for a model number on the battery & do a Google search for it if you want to try & replace it. You might also find it is cheaper to buy a whole new DVD player than it is to buy a replacement battery.
