Question about Polaroid Portable DVD Player PDM-0722
The little spring on the back left side of the lid that opens up to put the disc in is broken, or has come lose so it does not allow the back left to close all the way. therefor the disc will not spin, and no menu or anything will come on. i just get a blue screen. if i squeeze it gently it will shut, but still nothing. the front closes with no problem, it's just the back left that ever so slightly will not properly close. what i am sure i need is a repair shop. any help on one in my orange county area. thank you.

Did you try the laser. If the laser is misaligned it will not pick up the necessary information. It could be a case that this might even be broken, if so return it to where you purchased and ask for a replacement. I say this because this was the problem I had recently.

Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.
First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.
Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.
You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..
Make a suitable U shaped bracket that will slide over the broken plastic bracket and drill a tiny hole in the side where the spring will clip in.
make sure it fits really well and then epoxy into position.
Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.
I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash
