    I believe the battery pack may not be working and I cannot charge it through the plug in charger b/c the metal peice inside the plug has broken off inside the dvd player. I want to continue using it but I am not sure what to do. I have been unable till now to even find some help with this.

Is there any way to keep this charged? Or is it just batteries?


It runs in 4 "AA" batteries. You can buy rechargeable batteries (we keep two sets so one is always on the charger) or you can buy a rechargeable battery pack designed specifically for this game. For my money, the rechargeable "AA's" were a far better deal, less than half the cost.

Even after putting a new fully charged battery camera shows battery empty


The reason you are still getting this error despite the fact that you've placed a new fully charged battery means that the battery is not compatible with the camera. The fact that it states this is because the battery isn't capable of handling the Olympus camera. I would suggest for you to buy a recommended battery pack by Olympus, or a rechargeable battery pack to avoid these errors.

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.

Maybe you have to buy a new rechargable battery pack. I have had one before and for some reason it no longer charged well. It too would hold a charge for only a small period of time, definately not long enough to appease my daughter! :) Try giving vtech a call and see what they say. At the very least they can help you get a new pack. Here's the number! 1.800.521.2010 :)

Dvd battery


Hello sara_lou,

I have 2 suggestions for you:

1) Look into purchasing an external rechargeable battery pack for PDVD units (available at Best Buy). It is an external pack that will connect to the players AC port.

2) Prepare for surgery! You will need 6 rechargeable AA batteries, a soldering iron, super glue, and patience.

You'll need to open the battery case and look at the batteries within. Note the direction and polarity of all the batteries and how they are wired/soldered together. You will need to replace all these batteries with the new ones you have purchased. Wire together the new batteries in the exact same order and polarity as the old dead ones. Remove the old ones and replace with the new ones. Solder in where necessary and be sure not to bridge any contacts. Put the case back together with a little super glue on the seam. Replace into the PDVD player when the battery case is dry (or else you may permanently mount the battery case into the player) and set to recharge using the AC pack. if everythign was wired correctly, you should have a charged battery pack in about 1 hour (since most rechargeable batteries come with 3/4 charge in them).

While I don't recomend this second solution, it is plausable for the hobbiest electrician or DIY-er.

Best of luck to you!
