I can't get the battery to charge. If I plug in the DVD player the DVD works, but the charging light isn't lit and no matter how long it's plugged in, I can't get the battery to charge. Once the unit is unplugged it doesn't work.
Borrow or get a cheap volt meter to see if the power supply is working. Insert one probe on the inside, and one on the outside to see what is going on inside the power supply/charger. Does the power supply hum or get warm? If not, it was probably made pre-broken at the factory in china. Either that or it's power lead has a break, it's power output jack or where it connects to the main board on your portable DVD player. -Pro Hack

The unit still,work?The battery when it low,the battery light turn yellow or red?Than when it fully charge it turn green?Just unplug the unit and use it dosen't matter,if the light don't turn off the light,that find.Or the battery is old and not taking full charged anymore that another resoan the charging light still on.
There should be a external port,plug in,plug the tranformer to the power source now,should have
indicator light will light up.Fully charge light will go out.Have to put it in the DVD player to charge that the extra battery only way.
The way the battery is usually charged is by plugging it into the player and plugging the player into the a/c outlet. Do not use the player, Just allow the player to charge the battery. The way you tell if the charging is working is the light on the front will usually be a red color and it will be steady color or blinking while charging. When the battery is fully charged, the light will turn green or turn off . This lets you know that the battery has fully charged.To test this try using the dvd player on the battery only. Play a dvd or cd and see if the battery is working properly. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
The blinking went away as I had charged it for a very long time. However, it was noted that it would not work on the DVD. The battery needs to be replaced. That solved my problem. I still have to look for a new battery for this device: US Logic 680p DVD player with recharging capabilities due to the portability option. It works fine if plugged in, but the battery just needs to be replaced if I want to use it independent of the plug. Thanks for asking how I resolved the issue.
Perhaps one of the contact pins are slightly bent, best to remove the power lead from the wall, grab a magnifying glass ... and have a closer look.
A bent pin will appear to be out of line with the others.
The connector may also be worn in such a way that it will not make contact... no matter which way hold your tongue. :) Take extra care when straightening the pin or pins.
Also a worn connector can build up a type of scum on the surface of the pin or pins, otherwise known as oxisidisation and corrosion or in simple terms ... RUST ! Carefully clean the pins with a Q tip dipped in methylated spirits and allow 5-10 minutes to dry, before reconnecting the charger to the DVD player.
The other possibility remains that the battery or charger may also be past it's used by date and may need to be replaced.
