Memorex MVDP1077 DVD Player

Some time ago I bought  this Memorex MVDP1077 DVD Player, I came across it. It had never been opened, I plugged in the battery and charged it, Turned it on, light came on in the front put nothing else happen, put a dvd in and still nothing happen. Scree was still black, no sign of life except for the on light being on. Tried to find a online service rep, or support, found nothing.

Does it behave the same if it is plugged into the wall?  I'm wondering if maybe the battery isn't holding enough of a charge.

The thing about portable DVD players is they are so cheap they really aren't worth getting repaired.

In fact, unless it is under warranty it would probably cost more to get it fixed than to just buy a new one.

Depending on how long ago,

A battery that sits around too long without being used will go bad.

Does it work if it's plugged in?



FYI, if you need a replacement power supply,

The battery showed it took a charge.
No it does not work when it is plugged in, when you press the on switch the on light lights up but nothing else works.

Then it's probably just dead and not going to work.

A bad battery might appear to be taking a charge but not hold the charge.

Agreed, but if it's plugged in the battery is bypassed.
