Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Jack is broken on portable CD player

A few days ago the power to my portable CD player kept cutting out when I used my AC adapter. It works fine with batteries, but I don't like using batteries when I don't need to. I thought the AC adapter was shot (it's probably nine or ten years old) but I bought a new one today and I'm still having the same problem. The CD player turns off by itself if the plug that goes into the AC/DC jack is moved or turned at all. The CD player itself is only about seven months old. Is it possible to be fixed? If not I may have to actually join the 21st century and spring for an mp3 player, which I really can't afford right now, unless there are any that sell for <$75, which I highly doubt, especially since I'd need at least a 20 gig player with all the music I have. I don't see an area to put my email address, I don't know if I'm just missing it, but if you need it it's mystical_chicken@yahoo.com .

Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.

If your portable DVD player work with the AC power adapter in the wall outlet.100% the litium battery doesn't take any more holding charges.The litium battery should last u about 2 years with minium usages 2-3 hours a day.But that the DVD player and the litium battery must keep in very well conditon and wheather wise.Not in the heat or cold and the humitnity well shorten the lituim battey life very quickly and also could damages the portable DVD player too dosen't matter how much u used it.Tries webites like Amazon.com,Partstore.com,Ebay.com to buy a new litium battery or a compatible one.

Battery compartment disconected by the AC adapter


That could be any number of things. Broken solder joint on the board where the battery terminals connect, dead batteries, and now that I think about it, if the connection is broken or loose in any way inside the hole where the ac adapter goes, it's not going to work with batteries. It needs that completed circuit regardless if there isn't an ac adapter inserted.

The battery will not charge. The player was bought 10 mnths ago


Test the voltage at the end of the power supply cord. perhaps the cord is broken or the power supply is dead. The output voltage should be listed on the adapter or by the DC input jack on the unit.

No power via batteries


The batteries are put in wrong, or there no good, or the dc jack in the back still has the plug in it for the ac adaptor. You see theres a small switch on the jack inside the unit that switches from the ac adaptor to the batteries, when the jack is iserted. Also if the plug is not pluged into the jack, then there could be a bad jack or a broken solder connection on the jack inside on the printed circiut board. good luck
