Question about Polaroid DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I had the same problem, which I attributed to having the plug in a power strip. Once I plugged it directly into the wall socket, I haven't had a problem since.

the battery pack is charging but not holding charge beacause it was not used for a long time as you said.try to recharge and completely drain the batteries a couple of times and the batteries should start holding better the charge.Another thing you may want to check is if there is power coming out at teh battery pack connectors(you will need a small volt meter)

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"

The battery you use may be new, but haven't enough current capacity to supply the DVD player. DVD players will take much more current in ampears. Check if voltage drops when your DVD player works. You can check it with the help of a multimeter, set to measure voltage. Fist check the battery voltage. Keep the probs of the multimeter connected to the battery terminals, switch on your DVD player, and check whther the voltage drops to a considerable rate. That is, if the voltage at no-load condition is 12VDC, it may go down upto 11.5VDC, and no more drop must be there. If it is so, make sure that the battery is bad. OK.
