    My SpectronIQ PDV 700 the power cord doesn't work at all. Was ready to toss the whole thing when I thought that I'd try it in a vehicle. It worked. The Power cord has the little power supply box that has a light that it suppose to light up when it's getting power. Well this doesn't happen. Don't know why I waited till now to try this, (in the car) as this quit last April. Just set it aside and didn't mess with it.

It most likely has some broken solder connections on the jack. Unless you have soldering equipment there is nothing you can do yourself except to take it to a repair center. If you tell them that the A/C adaptor jack has some broken connections that need to be resoldered, they may give you a break on the normal repair cost since this is not a big job. It just requires the right tools. If you have the soldering equipment you can take it apart and resolder those connections on the jack yourself.

When I put in a CD or DVD on my Polaroid PDM-0743 star loading but after a while have a error. DAD DISC or NO DISC, any ideas what should be the prolem?


If cleaning the lens on the laser does not solve the problem, then you will need a new laser or optical pickup. You may as well buy a new unit.

DVD Player that repeatedly says NO DISC for Polaroid PDM-0752


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

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>
