Found 29th Mar 2010
Ive got a disney in car dual screen dvd player and the power cable got trapped in the car door and is broken. I need a replacement charger but the dvd player has no makers name on it only disney. I googled and can only find a disney cable in america and they dont ship to uk so i was wondering if anyone knows whether another brand of cable would work? There is loads of different makes on ebay but not the one i want!! My girls are mad without their in car entertainment and want to try and get a replacement cable asap

Are you not able to cut the cable on either side of the damaged area and rejoin?

What voltage is it? 12v?

All you need is the original charger - will tell you voltage, ampere, polarisation etc. to get a new one in any electronics store.
If you really can't find it anymore, you can do the following:

Get one of these:
maplin.co.uk/Mod…423
(or similar, I don't work for Maplin, just the first one I could find)
then find the plug that fits in and start with the lowest voltage and work your way upwards until it works properly. My guess would be 9V but nevertheless start lower in order not to blow it.

Now there is one more tricky bit: you need to get the polarisation right. Usually next to where you can plug the cable in, there is a design showing if the 'plus' is inside or outside'. If you are lucky, at the same place you find even the voltage written.

Good luck!

Thanks everyone. I have managed to find one on ebay.com from a seller who has agreed to deliver to the uk for $4 so hopefully it will work when it gets here x
