Does anyone in town repair portable DVD players?

My uncle is very sick and I foresee a very long 14 hour car ride with our 2 little girls within the next few weeks. I want to be prepared

The charger port on our portable DVD player isn't working anymore. The charger works fine, but the charger won't stay connected in the DVD player, it falls out. Does anyone in town know how to fix this? Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,

Carli

You may be able to replace the charger. I am not sure if this would fix the problem, just a suggestion!

Is the jack broken or just worn so it doesn't hold the plug tight anymore? Can you just tape it or glue it in place?

Unfortunately consumer electronics aren't really made to be repaired anymore. You can't really get them apart etc. If the case comes apart it might be possible to solder in a new jack but most people just throw stuff like that away and get a new one anymore and that's kind of what they're made for.
