Disney-Branded DVD Players Being Recalled
WASHINGTON — About 102,000 Disney branded portable DVD players are being recalled because the battery packs sold with the players can overheat and possibly burst when recharging, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Thursday.
The commission said there have been 17 reports of batteries overheating with three reports of minor skin irritations and three reports of minor property damage.
The DVD players were sold at Walt Disney Co. (DIS) theme parks, through the Disney catalog, and at discount and electronics stores nationwide from April 2005 through March 2006 for between $70 and $130.
McNair Technology Co. Ltd. and Unitech Battery Ltd., both of China, manufactured the batteries, while Memcorp Inc. of Weston, Florida, distributed the battery packs.
The DVD players are about 6.5 inches by 5.5 inches with a 3-inch screen, and were sold with the following styles and model numbers: Princess, DP3500-PRN; Fairy Flowers, DP3500-FLR; Mickey Classic, DP3500-MC; Mickey Mouse, DP3500-MKY; and Power Rangers, DP3500-POW.
The commission said consumers should stop using the battery pack supplied with the DVD players and contact Memcorp for a battery replacement.
Memcorp's customers service department can be reached at 1-800-326-0315 or customers can view Memcorp's Web site www.disneyelectronics.com.

When I first saw that title I was like....darn it, but then I see it's just for the portable one. My Son has the TV and DVD player in his room, glad the recall wasn't for them!
my sis has the dvd player and it has not over heated or anything like that
