    I just stumbled upon this web site and boy was it a good thing. We could not use our "like new" dvd player because we had misplaced our battery charger a long time ago. I got a response from someone who had the same player but it did not work anymore. He gave me his charger and battery. I just reimbursed him the shipping charges. It was just what I needed to get the use out of mine. I apprecite and the guy who generously helped me out.

    For the record, I hope I'm not breaking any rules. I'm simply offering the part for free. I'm just asking to be reimbursed for shipping charges. Nothing more.

    Also man, if you want the whole thing you can have it. Maybe you can use it for parts one day. The battery should work since we always used the wall charger and the screen works great in case your screen ever goes south. Ah well, just a thought. Later!
