The cd player won't read any of the discs

I honestly don't know what happened, i went away for just a few months, when i came back the player wouldn't work, the antenae was broken and my adapter for the cable is gone, lol, i guess i left it in bad hands, but i took it to get fixed at a repair shop and the guy said it would be cheaper to buy a new one, but i paid so much for this one and i love the way it used to work, can anyone help?

Your cable problem I can't help with. The antenna is fairly easy... you just need to replace it with a second-hand one preferably from an old radio that is no good. Just make sure that it is the same size where it screws into the unit. The CD is the easiest part of the lot to fix, contrary to what Repair shops tell you. I don't think these people are dumb, and I don't think they intentionally try to rip us off by selling a new item instead, but I have found that cleaning the lens in the CD player fixes the problem. I buy old CD players that don't work, and within two minutes they are playing again. First try to use one of the commercial lens cleaners. I'll be really surprised if this works , though. It usually takes a LITTLE more effort than that... but that is the quick and easy way, and it's best to try that first. If it works OK, please let me know. I'd be interested to find out. If it doesn't, it means you will have to open the case, and clean the lens by hand, using a soft cloth, and what is known in Australia as Methylated Spirits, and then wipe it again with a soft dry cloth.I don't know the Yankee version of "Metho", but you should find it if you google it. If you need any more help, please don't hesitate to ask........ Please remember to rate this answer.

I was getting the same error and I could not get regular dvd or blu ray discs to play either. I dug out my old cd player lens cleaner and put it in and it started playing. I let it clean the lens for a couple minutes and now it is playing my movies again.

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...


Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.

Hard to get dvd player to work


How old is the set? As the player's laser ages it becomes harder for it to read discs. Audio CD's don't have as much data and are formatted differently from DVD's so they are easier to read. This is one possible cause. Hope this helps!

Polaroid FDM-0700A


Don't know that it's worth the money, but here's a source for a replacement inverter board (powers the fluorescent tube back light that provides 'brightness'). Manufacturer/designers of screen and back light power circuit, not Polaroid, are at fault . Screen and back light are used in equipment made by others as well, and all suffer same design deficiency :
