senses DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I saw the commercial for this player, got online, and read about it. It looked like/sounded like the perfect solution for parents of preschoolers. We thought this player would be perfect for our 3-year-old to take on the road and watch her DVDs in the car, or to watch in any room of the house, including right beside us, as we watched something else on TV, and being able to withstand a fall down the stairs and keep on playing was an awesome feature. At the time that I was shopping for this item, it was a HTF hot Christmas item, and it was virtually soldout everywhere. I paid top dollar for this piece of junk, the matching pink travel case, and also got the on-the-go kit, which includes kid's headphones, headphone jack splitter, car charger, and RCA cable for the TV. We were excited to give this to our daughter, and she was excited about having her own DVD player that she could take anywhere. We charged it for 8 hrs. as per the instructions, but the LED that indicates charging shut off before 8 hrs. We then plugged in the RCA cable to the TV, popped in one of her favorite DVDs, and it didn't even get through that first DVD before it spontaneously shut itself off, and restarted the DVD from the beginning. We shut it off and restarted it multiple times, and the malfunctions just got worse. The screen went black, even though the picture appeared on the TV. It kept shutting itself off and restarting itself, and then, it just wouldn't play. That was the first DVD that we tried to play! We tried other DVDs, and it's still junk. Those same DVDs play fine in our other DVD players and laptops. When I got back online, I found that there were multiple identical complaints about the Fisher Price DVD player at another webstore. I plan to call Fisher Price, but don't have high hopes for a remedy, as other parents stated that they contacted Fisher Price and the customer service (or lack thereof) was horrible, and Fisher Price already seems to know that these players are junk. Even if I can get a refund for this piece of garbage, given the other similar complaints that I've read, it doesn't seem wise at all to exchange it for another piece of junk. Some parents were on their 3rd Fisher Price DVD player before finally turning it in for a refund! JUST DON'T BUY THIS, and you'll save yourself a lot of money and frustration. IT DOESN'T WORK. Or may fool you by working very briefly before malfunctioning, or no longer holding/accepting a charge.
KAILANIS MOMMY MY 2 1/2 YEAR OLD HAD NO PROBLEM FIGURING IT OUT, VERY EASY TO USE...A LITTLE HEAVY FOR KIDS, BUT STILL PERFECT THE BATTERY LASTS A LONG TIME....MY DAUGHTER TAKES IT IN THE CAR, TO DADDYS BASEBALL GAMES, AND THEN CAN GO PLUG IT IN AT HOME AT USE IT ON HER TV AS WELL.

Trisha This product is a piece of garbage. Please dont waste your money into buying this product. My daughter used it a couple of times and the one time she turned it off that was the end of that. It stopped working completely. I thought that the battery was completely dead and i recharged it and when i went to turn on the player nothing was on the screen. Retailers and stores should stop selling this product because it is not good. A complete waste of money.
