    looking for durabrand pdv -705 9 volt 20w. power adaptor.

  • Joseph Smetona Jul 31, 2008

    We have two Durabrand PVD-709 DVD players purchased at Wal-Mart.

    Important: The adaptors are defective and present a fire safety hazard. The plastic used to cover the wires going from the transformer box to the DVD are made of an inferior material and will easily crack just where the wire enters the black case for the transformer assembly. This is NOT normal wear and tear and is NOT the result of any abuse. Both of our units have the same problem at the same location. The 9 volt, 2 amp output rating of the unit is enough to get a fire started if shorted. Both conductors leaving the black transformer box (on both of our units) are exposed and can easily short. If you experience this problem, DO NOT try and use the power supply.

    As far as contacting Durabrand, Initialdvd.com or Wal Mart, save your energy, because no one knows anything and they will just refer you around in circles.

    It's just an example of inferior materials used in a Wal-Mart product which can't be remedied no matter who you call.

This is a great response. The adapter from your link is inexpensive (around $20.00 with shipping) and is designed differently. The plug in transformer design should hold up better and hoppefully, the materials used in the wire insulation are more pliable and will not crack.

Thanks again,

Where i find ac dc adaptor durabrand portable pdv 705


You should go to a local electronics shop with the old adaptor.
They merely need to match: Voltage in Voltage out Current requirements Plug size Plug polarity (center positive or negative) There is nothing "magic" about the original vendors power adapter.
