Portable dvd player won't charge

My son owns a Durabrand portable dvd player...model PDV 702. He bought it in June of this year (2007), it was manufactured in March of this year. He plugged it in to the charger this evening and the light will come on for about 1 second then it goes off. His battery on screen shows low battery power. I tried wiggling the cord a bit to see if it could be a broken wire but couldn't get the light to stay on for more than a second. Wondering if it could be a bad battery, do they only take so many hours of charging or if there's something else. thanks in advance for any help you can give this stressed mom with a crying son.

    I have the same problem, except we have only had ours for 2 days. I got two of my children the PDV-702 for Christmas 2007. One only charged for a couple of hours the first day. The other one stopped charging the second day. The lights don't come on at all with the battery attached to the player and it won't play, even with home adapter. Unless the battery is removed. Then it plays normally. I hope I'm doing something wrong. Otherwise, I'm not very impressed with this product.

    it is the same problem, we bought it last christmas - 2007. and the manufacturing date is may 2007. My daughter was watching in the car when the dvd screen started showing low battery, we connected it to the car charger but within minutes it went blank, I tired charging it at home but in vain. We think it could be teh battery....please advice

If anyone would know it would be the company who made it. Walmart buys from small electronics companies and puts it under the Durabrand name. Very Sneaky. The company that makes the DVD player is called Lenoxx. There website is www.lenoxx.com. Here is the rest of their contact info.

Durabrand DVD players are no longer supported because the company went out of business in November of 2007. Walmart was aware of this.

They have been exchanging them for equal or lesser value.

Need power cords and phone chargers

They are available on eBay for quite cheap, I just did a quick search and they can be had for under $10 including shipping. Depends on the exact model number of your unit, there wasn't a huge selection.

Well, you could bring it in to radio shack and have them check what type of tip you need, and then just buy a universal charger with that tip included.
