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.

I have a Polaroid pdm-08228bd that whenever we put


when you open the cover for the DVD you will see the laser ..its a small lens like device mounted on a spring like assembly .. you can manually clean that laser with a soft paper towell soaked in eyeglass lens cleaning solution .. dont spray the solution on the laser directly .. make sure the spindle spins freely in the center where the disk mounts ... when you close the lid and turn power on you should be able to hear the disk spin .. if you can hear it spin and hear some clicking but still wont play then you likely have a worn out laser .. unfortunately the cost of installing a new laser is often greater than the cost of a new DVD player ...
here are a few models that might be worth looking at ..

Polaroid Portable DVD won't work


First try a couple more discs. If it still doesn't work. Take a little bit of alcohol on a qtip and clean off the little clear circle under the lid. Make sure the dics you are using a not scraped and not foreign. If that doesn't work, order a new one and put the old one in the new box and send it back as broken.

WILL NOT PLAY A DISC


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

Shows bad dics all the time


I have finally fixed ya you BAD DISC error message on the Polaroid PDM-0743 ok, listen carefully, first try cleaning the eye lens in the dvd player with a Que Tip with "distilled water" or with "rubbing alcohol" and then let dry, put movie in, turn power on, and it MIGHT WORK? but my guess it will still say BAD DISC, so if that happends it's take apart time you will only need one tool <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/Tools.jpg"></p> Take out the battery and Flip the unit over where the DVD players LCD SREEN is sitting on your lap you should find alot of black screws just un install the screws on the back <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/backofplayer.jpg"></p> but wait take this sticker off too. <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/sideofpalyer.jpg"></p> and after that <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/laserlensscrew.jpg"></p>

DVD's will not load or play.


the DVD player is the problem, if its under warranty, call polaroid and they will send you the replacement one, it only takes on screw to remove the unit and slip the new one in. I had the same problem last year and it took them about a week to get me the part, all they ask is you send back the other one in 30 days or they will charge you for it.
