Question about Philips PET702 Portable DVD Player

2 Answers

Power source. Early in the manuel it says to turn off the player when charging. Later under troublshooting it mentions the problem of the screen going dim when removed from AC outlet. It says that it's an automatic response to save battery power. It seems conradictory. I'd like to know wether it's possible to use the player while its charging without causing damage to the player, battely etc. Sorry if this comes out twice b/c it didnt come up the 1st time I asked it.

Actually, if you use AC power the battery is removed from the charging circuit so to speak. In other words the battery does not charge while the player is plugged into AC power. This may seem harmless, but in my experience with a PET702/37 it actually shortened the time the built-in battery will power the player. I started out with the player fully charged, letting it run down to power off and then fully charging before using again. I got a little lazy after about a year and started watching dvds with it always plugged into the AC. I now get less that an hour of run time unplugged. I believe I shortened the battery life by watching a lot with the player plugged in and the battery not fully charged. It's said the the LiPo batteries do not have a "memory" like older rechargeables, but my experience has proven otherwise.

Well I am not a technical person, but i imagine it should be possible to use all such products while they are charging.

You can try unplugging the units--no picture often means the DVD has a dirty or failed optical unit.

How to charge dvd plug in to ac get a red light some time yellow and do you charge with power switch on or off need a manual.


I have seen no rechargeable device that requires the power switch that lets the device function turned on. Often, it is mentioned that the length of time for a full charge will be longer if the unit is in use at the time since the unit and recharging function both require power and if the player is in use, it logically has priority over the recharging function. In other words, it should charge more quickly if the player is turned off.
Unfortunately, Initial's website: http://initialdvd.com/ is no longer in operation so finding the manual could be a problem. Initial Technology has sold a number of 'turkeys' in the US (we own an Ilo TV) and I think they no longer exist.

Message on machine constantly says "please wait". It will not turn off unless unplugged.


This machine has problems with the power supply board that can cause a continuous please wait on system check or please wait triggered by trying to dub to DVD-R. The first problem is likely to occur with the older power supply boards and the DVD dub problem on the later boards. The bad capacitor problem was on the earlier power supply boards. The following link is to the solution for this http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display The later power boards have a voltage regulator problem and the fix for this is at http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 You will notice from the photos that the early and later boards look different so it's easy to see which one you have. I replaced the voltage regulator in my machine and it now works like new.

If it won't turn on with the switch in the on position, check the fuse in the cord (you must unscrew the tip portion that goes in the cigarette lighter).

HELP!!! my portable DVD player isn't charging correctly


If it is under warranty, then try to get another battery from the company or you can get another battery yourseld on ebay like item number 250261738286. When rechargeable battery operated devices act like this, it is most likely due to a battery that just does not charge to full capacity because it is old (I did take not that you mentioned that it is fairly new) or just bad. Let us know know how it goes.

Portable DVD Player will not power up


This player should be charged up until the green light goes out to be fully charged. I usually leave them on over night.
