Customer Question

I was given an Insignia portable C.D. Player for Xmas but it uses up too many batteries, where can I buy an external plug in for it.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Insignia is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: We purchased a Compact switching DC Power adapter but that does not do the job.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I just need to know if there is something out there to make this work with a Plug in, it works great with batteries.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Yes, there is an AC Adapter for this device.

You can buy such an adapter from at least 3 sources, one is eBay for less than $20 up-font price, the other two are about $20 and from WalMart (online, at least, if not in a store near you.)


for about $21.00 up-front price, and this one

for about $23 and with a longer cord.

If these three possible sources aren't any of them good enough, just Reply To Expert and let me know, and I will locate other sources.
