Cant get a solution.
Since 3 years it has not worked.
In the earlier period it would not pick up some DVDs and at other times it would pick up the same DVDs it had not picked up earlier. Eventually it stopped picking any DVD.
What should i do?

Some times dust can collect on the laser lens of the pick-up assembly and cause this. If you can get to the lens, which is under the disc tray where the disc gets clamped and starts to spin, it can be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. Just be gentle with it. If this doesnt help the pick-up assembly will have to be replaced.
I was a circuit board engineer for the on-chip set. there was a major techical issue with the units but due to the cost of investments by polariod, they decided to sell them to the public anyway. the promblem is in the chip that only works for a very short time before is overheats and the system will show "bad disk"
Since I posted, I THINK I may have solved my problem. I unplugged the unit for an hour or so, plugged it in again, and it DID play a "commercial" DVD that I had tried earlier. I don't know if this is a permanent solution -- we'll see. If not, I'll take the next step in seeking some help.
my solution may be to never buy this companies products again as I have been having the same issue and since the machine is not been used much and since the disks worked before it really ticks me off. The suggestion noted to my issue recently really didn't seem to be valid due my above statted time period of no problems then sudden isses tends to show me poor quality of equipment by manufaturer.
I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the
United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by
instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu
will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.
I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.
