The car charger doesn't light up and doesn't seem to be working. I have plugged it into different cars and tested the cig. lighters in the cars and they do work. The second screen doesn't work because the place where the car charger plugs into, the silver thing that sticks out is borken.What should I do?

I have this model dvd player and it has worked very well for over a year. Lately it has not had a picture but has had sound when fully charged. When the green light is on, it is charging. When the light goes off, it is fully charged (or should be). I plugged the wall charger directly into the dvd player and it works fine with pic and sound. I think maybe the rechargable battery is on it last legs. I am looking for a longer cig lighter charger cord to reach the headrest so kids can watch from backseat. I will be able to keep it plugged in to charger at all times. Hope this helps!
So I had the same thing and I was pretty upset because Walmart wouldn't take it back! So, I don't know what inspired me to do this, but I simply switched the yellow and black plugs that go in between the screens. So plug the yellow connector into the black hole on both screens and then the black connector into the yellow holes. Now it works perfect. It still doesn't work if I try to switch it back. Weird, but you might as well give it a shot, it worked for us!
If you are not using the car power adapter that came with your PDV-768 for the 2nd screen, you are likely running into the possibility of "reversed polarity" with the power adapter you are attempting to use. This can & often will cause a problem with your unit.
i went to radio shack and bought an DC to AC converter (plugs into your cig lighter and has a DC plug at the other end) and just use the other DC provided plug. it works much better. I bought one by "powerline" that has dual plugs and a usb port. it has a long estension and the unit can sit away from the cig lighter.(great for lap tops and other stuff to be used in the car as well!) its also fused. solved all my problems. it cost about 30$.
