Wall charger I lost the wall charger for my Initial portable DVD player model IDM-1731. On the side, it says "DC IN 9V". Where can I get a replacement wall charger without paying a fortune? THanks.

Radio shack carries a universal kit with choices of many different voltage and milliamp combination. Bring your DVD player to them, and they can help find the one that best suits you.

You can try and use any 9volt output AC to DC converter you have around at your own risk - 2.2 watts is what is marked on mine. No mention of milliamps.

If you use something with a lower wattage it may take longer to charge but there is also the possability of things getting warm - just keep track of things the first several times you do it 'till you trust your configuation.


PS - I do this quite often - right now I'm using a speaker power supply to run a flatbed scanner - same volts out DC - different milliamps with no problems - needed the scanner more than the speakers - LOL
