Try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner cd, if this doesn't work the lens itself is scratched or faulty and you will need to buy another dvd player

SOURCE: 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!!

Error: Bad disk


If you are using original discs and have the problem. Try with a cleaning disc and is still the same, check for calibrating the optic lens. About how much is the replace or the calibrating you have to ask on the repair shop or manuf. website. Sometimes, is better buy a new one because the technology moves so fast it makes the same technology disposable.

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.

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>

"no disc" error message


Did this problem just start? It may be due to the lens no longer reading the disc. Try a lens cleaner. If your lens went south, it usually is paired with a clicking noise or/and the combination of a no disc/disc error message. I would also recommend staying away from Polaroid dvd players and tv's in the future. They have a habit of not making parts available, especially after the warranty.
