I think that if you haven't used your portable dvd's battery pack and followed the directions about not leaving it plugged in if not using that Kawasaki should be responsible in replaceing the battrey. Why should I be responsible for a battery that obviously didn't do what it was supposed to do. Why should I be the one to pay to replave something that was deffective when I purchased the unit as a package. When I purchased the player at Target, I had good faith that I was purchasing a quality product, I am obviously disappointed in the battery back-up portion of this product. Is there anything anyone can do to help resolve this problem? I am disabled and on a fixed income. I splurged amd purchased this item so I would have it available when I had to be in the hospital waiting for tests or at one of my several Docter's appointments that usually take several hours. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Eugenia Cook [email protected]

After a while even rechargeable batteries loose the ability to hold a charge. This process accelerates when the battery is allowed to lie completely discharged for long periods of time. NiCad batteries especially have this issue. If you left the battery sitting for long periods without occasionally charging it, it losses the ability to hold a charge. It appears you are going to have to either do without the battery or replace the pack. I would take out the old one, it will eventually start to corrode and leak and if its still in your machine it will cause damage.
If you get a new battery pack make sure you charge it fully and then depleat it completely before recharging it.
hope this helps.
The battery it is dead,even u plug the dvd player power in directly into the power source.Must have the battery inside and the must have some juiced left before for the dvd player to work.Tries websites like Partstore.com,Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy a new battery or a compatible one.
Hello, You are doing it right! the battery should be charged with in the 24 hour period. There are two things to consider :
One, is the possibility that the rechargeable battery has dried(due to wear and tear)and is not accepting the charge or The second possibility is that the power supply isn't working properly, therefore, not charging the battery.
It is possible to know at least if one of the two is working just by operating the DVD player while connected with the AC adapter. Turn the DVD on and play a disc, if the unit operates, this eliminates a defective power supply and only leaves a defective battery pack, if it doesn't work than consider the power supply defective and repairs are due. As to where to buy a replacement part is for someone else to answer. Good luck!
No. do not leave plugged in indefinitely . There is a max. charge time. Check manual. Also run your' charge down all the way approx. every 3 uses, and this will extend the batteries life. Yes you can charge while in use.
Good luck finding a direct replacement for this unit. A universal replacement can be found at many internet vendors for $30 to $50. RB-270 manufactured by INITIAL. 9.0V and 5400mA which is a great improvement over the OEM battery. Fully charged this battery should last 2 hours or more. NOTE: This is not a direct replacement and will not attach to your DVD player as the form factor is universal. It will reside next to the player during operation... a minor inconvenience. I think WALMART carries the same model.
Make sure the battery is installed in the correct direction, turn off the player, plug in the AC pack and look for the red charge light to illuminate on the front lip of the player. Give it a few hours to charge.
