idea of what to buy.

It should have a/v cables that connect from the dvd player that will go into your tv, it depends on the connections on your tv and dvd player, if there is HDMI you can connect this way as well

Check the lens, sometimes dirt gets in there. Try to run a DVD cleaning disk... they are sold at many places, they are cheap and you can still use them for cleaning your CD players and DVD players at home. This should fix the problem.... if not ... try to shake the DVD player gently to remove any foreign matter that could be stuck somewhere...good luck!

I had the same problem and I found out that is definitely the battery. I had used mine only a few counted times and after 1 year the battery would not charge. I would plug it and the charge light would turn on and stayed for about 4 minutes and then turned off. I called axion and talk to customer support. The tech said that the internal batteries only last for a year whether you use the DVD or not. They would replace the battery for $60 + shipping costs. As you can see... it is not worth it....sometimes you are lucky and get good stuff for cheap but sometimes... you just get what you pay for.... and this is one of the cases. Yes, I am also very disapponted. What a piece of junk!!!! I can still watch DVD with either the charger plugged in or with the car charger. But it lost its Portable side.....

This is because the laser wears out over time. DVD requires it to be much more precise then a cd, it gets very technical. Depending on the age of the unit your options are limited. If it's under warranty then contact the manufacturer and have it repaired/replaced. If not I would just buy a new one as there are a lot of sales at this time and you can get them fairly cheap.
Thank you,

2 things first:
These players have a switch to ensure the lid is closed. Verify if this is ok.

Some discs could have some scratches that turn them unreadable. verify every disc first.

after 2 or 3 years of service the battery needs to be replaced.

Batteries have a finite charging "cycles". These cycles runs out every time you charge the battery.

keep the power off or the battery will not charge properly

Absolutely, as long as the radio has connections for an auxiliary antenna. You can also connect to an indoor antenna that's a lot better than the wire antenna that your set comes with. For options, try searching eBay for FM antenna.

if cleaning it does not solves the problem then its necessary to open the player and replace the lens.usually when a dvd player reads "no-disc", even on a new dis, that points to a problem with the laser itself. The laser uses two focus voltages, one for CD and one for DVD.

The most common one i see is DVD Laser current drops and you have to re-adjust it.

It is a bear to do. You have to disassemble the whole unit to get to the laser head, underneath it there is two screws to turn, one is labelled DVD. You have to turn itslightlyone way and reassemble to test.... you can see this is tedious. You can try it, just take the  batteries out and don't lose the screws.

in portable dvd players the disassembly instructions are mostly the same in all brands. click this link directly
if you are not familiar with disassembling and if dont have proper tools to open the player.its advisable to get it repaired from local electronics repair it will not be too costly issue to get the lens replaced.

thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated,.

Ensure the radio/AUX/Ipod is off (hold down the power button)

Press & hold MODE until 12:H flashed. Use the TUNE/SKIP buttons to make your selection

Press MODE again to see the hours flash and again use the TUNE/SKIP buttons to set the hour

Press MODE again to see the minutes flash and use the TUNE/SKIP buttons to set the minutes.

Press MODE again and you are finished.

To set the alarm: Press and hold the ALARM button until the time flashes and then use the TUNE/SKIP buttons to adjust.

Unless your have some technical background and a multimeter, you are risking at least the battery pack of your laptop and worst case, the laptop itself.
Most devices that accept an external adaptor are somewhat protected against applying the wrong polarity of voltage but that protection is primitive and depending on the 'universal' (this really should be 'multipurpose-not 'universal) adaptor used, the protection itself can fail, exposing the circuitry inside the laptop that controls the voltage from the adapter to damaging voltage; this would get much more expensive than replacing the original adapter from the manufacturer of the laptop.
You did not mention the brand/model of laptop you have and with only the adapter listed, we can't help you much.
