Question about Polaroid PDV-0700 Portable DVD Player
I have this devd player about 4 years, and now when i put dvd's in its trys to load then it says no dic. what should i do????? and is it easy to fix
Use an ohmmeter to determine the resistance on the potentiometer (variable resistor) on the side of the laser assembly. I don't know what they read on your model, but on an Xbox the laser should read about 4500 ohms on a new laser, or as little as 2000 ohms on one that is at the end of its lifespan. Once you get your reading, reduce the resistance, no more than 200 or 300 ohms at a time, by turning the potentiometer screw with a jeweler's screwdriver. On the xbox, you turn it counterclockwise, but it may be different on this dvd player. Be sure you check it with your ohmmeter, and don't make too big of a jump. If you go too low, you can cause the laser to burn out completely. On an xbox, 2000 ohms is the minimum, going below that can make it burn out. Once again, it may be different on your dvd player. Good luck!

Replace the laser drive assembl ribbon cable or the laser drive assembly itself. But first try to clean with a soft dry Q-tip.
