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.

Your question was posted under the Nuvi 680 GPS, so I am assuming this is the model that you have.

On the main screen, you will see a green battery status indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The battery is divided into 4 parts. Each part represents 1/4 power. So if you have one green bar, that indicates that the battery has 1/4 of power left. If there are 3 bars, that indicates that there is 3/4 power left.

When the unit is charging, you will see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the green battery status icon.

When the lightning bolt is not there, this means the unit is running off of the battery.

When leaving the unit to charge, press and hold the power button until you see that the screen says Charging Battery. A few seconds later, the screen will go blank to save energy.

Pressing the screen again later will either say Charging Battery or Battery Charge Complete.

My bauhn TV screen stopped working. DVD plays sound but no picture. Can the TV be reset or rebooted


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

Vm9424 unit will not power on pressed reset button and it beeps and lights around function buttons come on and go back off fan comes on for about 10 seconds and turns off checked power ground fuses.is...


Hello lumberjack623,
When the jensen starts acting this way, it is simply a power problem. The device is not receiving power from the main source. The battery is weak and need to be charged before the unit can turn on once again. The battery power is too low to turn the unit on.
Try to check the power source or the connection to the power source. It is not charging the players battery. You need to have the connection port replaced. Also the power connection needs be checked.
The battery is simply weak that is why it goes right off when it comes on.
Hope this was helpful to you. All the best Elect_Comp

My Coby mp3 player won't connect to my computer


QUESTION ONE:
Can you see it in "My Computer"? It will show under "Removable Drive/Storage"

QUESTION TWO:
Double click the removable drive to open the folders. Can you see your music, photo and photo folders?

QUESTION THREE:
Can you see the player in Coby Manager - under the "DEVICE" tab?

QUESTION FOUR:
When disconnected from the computer, how long can you listen to the Coby player before it goes off?

If not present in My Computer or in Coby Manager, then it is not plugged in correctly.
a. Disconnect the player from the computer.
b. Wait for it to cycle through "Please Wait" and "Updating Library" screens.
c. Make sure the player is TURNED OFF ! ! !
d. With player TURNED OFF, reconnect wire to the player then to the computer.
e. You will see a USB connector icon on the player screen and the player battery charging.

It will appear to be charging all the while it is connected to the computer. After it has been plugged into the computer for an hour, it should be well charged unless the battery is completely run down. In that case, you need to do an initial 8-16 hour charge with the player turned OFF connected to the computer.

IT WILL NOT CHARGE WITH A COMPUTER UNLESS IT IS TURNED OFF WHEN YOU CONNECT IT.


f. Use the Coby Manager to disconnect the player

(Found HERE if you have had to format the player)
CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

1. Go to the DEVICE TAB
2. CLICK on EJECT Button in lower right hand corner.
3. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
4. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system."
5. The Coby will now show "Please Wait..."
6. It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the "Please Wait" screen and then on the "UPDATE the Library" screen - Be PATIENT

You should now have enough battery power to use it. To check the battery level,

1. Turn on the player
2. The battery icon is in the upper right hand corner of the screen - it is ALWAYS RED until it starts to go down... I've not had mine down very far, but believe the red line gets shorter as the battery is wearing down.

Hope this helps

Hello how come my rca mp3 player doesnt charge when i plug it in my computer


You most likely have not turned the player off. Connect to your USB port, switch on the player using the slide switch on the side. The screen will light up. To make the battery charge, turn off the player by holding down the 'play' button until you get the bye-bye message. A couple of seconds later the screen will go black and the battery will start charging. Leave overnight if the battery is dead flat.

My Sansa Clip won't turn on even thought the battery is full.


Unfortunately there was a manufacturing flaw with many Sansa Clips which caused one of the battery leads to detach from the battery. A symptom of this is that the Clip will turn on and charge when connected to an external power source, such as USB or an AC adapter, but will not actually turn on using the internal power source (eg, the battery).

If your Clip is still under warranty, you should return it for a refund or an exchange.

I cant seem to turn off my zune completely, only pauses the unit, the screen goes black after holding the pause button, it appears to be off, then i go to use it hours later and the battery life has...


The Zune never really turns off completely. To turn it off, hold the back button and up on the Zune pad. As soon as the screen turns black, let it go, and turn on Hold.

This will turn it off completely.

BIG problem. PLZ help!!! :(


The Samsung YP-F1 has a reset button located under the black Samsung cover plate. It can be gently removed via a finger nail or mini flat blade screwdriver. Once plate is removed a hole labeled reset will be seen. Use something like a paper clip and press in. MP3 will power down/reset. MP3 data is also retained after reset.
