I have a portable 7" dvd player PDM-0743. When I insert discs it says "bad disc". I have tried several discs and it says the same.


First thing-- try a disc drive cleaner (available at electronics stores) OR if you can see the laser lens when you open the tray you can clean it with a Que-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
If that doesn't work, let me know.

Polaroid portable DVD player error code ''bad disc''


You'd need to open the unit, and the problem is either that the laser and the tray are misaligned, which can be tricky to fix even, or worse, you need a new laser. Either way, the Polaroid dvd player may not be worth getting repaired if it is no longer under warranty.

Good luck!!

I get the message "bad disc" with every disc I put in the player.


ok best bet is that your laser (what reads the discs) in your laptop is dirty, use a cd/dvd cleaning disc to clean the laser, can buy them from most computing, music shops

either needs to be clean or the REGION needs to be set up to 1 or ALL , LETS TRY WITH cleaning the OPTICAL LENS with a dry Q tip , gently rub a few strokes at the lens , and give it a try, if NOT then try to set the REGION to 1 or all, if still not reading the disc , then have to replace the optical lens, good luck , AJ

You might try gently cleaning the laser eye with soft dry Q-tip. Other wise the laser will probably need replacing. I repair and sell portable DVD players.
