The Sony Portable DVD Player (model DVP-FX820) makes it possible for you to watch DVDs anywhere you go. It's perfect for a long car ride or if you have a little free time between classes or work. After you've begun using your DVD player, you might experience a setback where the power light starts blinking and the player refuses to work.

Low Battery

On the front of your device two indicator lights are labelled: a "Power" light and a "Charge" light. The "Power" light is illuminated when the device is on or in use. The "Charge" light illuminates when the player is charging, turns off after the battery is fully charged and blinks when the battery is drained. DVDs won't play when the "Charge" light is blinking until it is plugged into a power outlet and charging.

Remove and reattach the Battery

Before charging the battery, remove the battery pack from the bottom of the player and replace it to ensure a snug fit. The battery pack can be removed from the bottom of the player by pushing the "Release" latch on the front of the battery in the direction of the arrow. The pack will come loose. Lift the battery and realign the hooks on the bottom of the battery pack to the holes on the bottom of the player. Lower the pack onto the player and slide the pack forward until it clicks into place.

Charge the Battery

Plug the supplied AC power cord into the back of the supplied AC adaptor. Plug the other end of the AC adaptor into the "DC In" jack on the right edge of the player. Plug the pronged end of the AC power cord into a wall outlet and allow the player to charge for approximately six hours. You can use the DVD player while it charges, but a full battery charge will require more time. Playback lasts approximately six hours before the battery will need to be recharged.

Charging in the Car

If you're using Sony portable DVD player on a road trip, plug the supplied car battery adaptor into the cigarette lighter socket. Plug the loose end of the adaptor into the "DC In" jack on the Sony DVD player. Charge the player for six hours. Make sure the power isn't interfering with the driver. If you notice interference in the clarity of the picture move the player further away from the car battery adaptor.
