Question about Durabrand PVS1966 Portable DVD Player

Durabrand PVS 1970 portable DVD player

My player will not hold a charge. The power adapter is working properly because the player works when I have it pluged in. When it is not pluged in it will not turn on at all. I would like to possibly contact the manufacturer to find out how to get it repaired. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Thanks, Bruce

    Hi,
    I don't have a meter to get a direct measurement of the voltage at the battery charging terminal. It does seem as though the battery will not hold a charge just because of the way the problem presents itself. I need to know who to contact to get the system fixed. Do you the information I need about where I can get it fixed?
    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Hi,
    The battery compartment is not easy to access and it does not appear as though the battery is meant to be "consumer removable/replaceable batteries".

I have a PVS-1970, and it does not have a battery. It is for use in the car or in the house. It MUST be plugged in to a power source - NO BATTERY!

If you have a meter, check to see if there is voltage present at the battery charging terminal. If there is not, it is the charging circuit. It is also possible you battery is cycled out and therefore will not charge.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

My dell inspiration 910 has just played up. it was working perfectly before and i was using dell speakers and my ipod, ipod was removed, and left it still pluged in and charging and noticed the orange...


This sound as though the power supply adapter needs replacement.
If you can find a compatible power supply adapter perhaps you can charge you laptop.
A company call Batteries Plus may be able to help or Ebay may have you adapter power supply if you do a search.
You may also contact Dell for support on this issue.
Some Dell power supply fail due to overheating.
you may also want to check the power supply connector.

The battery full charge only reach 98% & says pluged not charging!!!what this mean?


Due to regular use of the notebook, some static charges tend to stay in the computer, and sometimes results in not allowing the computer to function properly.

Please follow the power drain procedure to confirm the same:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30seconds to 1 minute.
4. Put the Battery in.
5. Reconnect the AC adapter.
6. Turn on the Notebook power.
7. Restart the Notebook.

Screen froze saying now playing and saying charging when it isn't


Do a reset.

Move lock slider to the left.

Hold down the center button down.

Press and hold the ring at MENU.

When the apple logo appears, let both buttons go.

The player should then work properly...

Not charging


I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.

External charger for battery?


I had the same problem just today,when I turned my Zen on after like 6 months- zen working fine from the charger but battery would not show any charging[no battery icon].What I did is cut the output cord from charger and strip the two wires just a little bit and hold the bare ends straight on the battery contacts - and + [plus is the one with white stripes] for like 30 seconds and than put the battery back to the Zen,turn on the zen [without the charger pluged in] and it worked,showing slightly charged battery,so I pluged the charger back and it started charging the battery normal like before.Hope this helps,Lukas

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery
