Question about Polaroid Portable DVD Player PDM-0722

Will not play

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.

SOURCE: My daughter's DVD player is not working. Not sure of brand but has CSIR in kryptic type writing, purchased duty free.

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.

WONT SPIN ?


There is a switch..(interlock) that activates when the lid is open or closed...not allowing the unit to go into spin if the lid is open. It may be that the machine thinks the lid is open. The switch could be dirty or broken or loose. There is a little leg sticking out from the underside of the lid, that goes into a slot on the machine when the lid is closed, that activates the switch. Make sure this all looks good, (no obstructions or debris in the slot) and the leg goes all the way into the slot (lid closes all the way).
You should see a little plastic lever in the slot that the leg on the lid will contact when you close it. If it is there and unobstructed, try gently pushing down on with your finger or the back of a pencil or something, until you hear a faint click (switch). It should spring back into position when you release. Its a quick and easy check. Good luck.

LID CLOSED STILL SHOP LID AS AN ERROR


Looking from the back of the 8650 counter with the lid open, there is a safety switch on the left side. It is either not pressed in when the lid is closed or it is broken. To test, take the two wires from that switch and connect them together. That will by pass the switch and allow the machine to work. Good luck.

The flash is spring loaded and does not fully open when the release button is pushed. Must be manually held in upper position in order for the flash to work. Help me fix it


The Spring mount breaks in the flash and loses tension.

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

Replace lid switch assembly on


Most whirlpools open this way:

The control panel must be detatched- it is held on with small spring clips under the left and right side of the control panel, and you can release them by pressing in on them with a putty knife -OR- it is held on with screws at the back of the base, which when remove will allow you to move the base and release the hooks from their slots.

Then you need to unplug the lid switch, and then release the two brass colored "funny s shaped spring hooks" that hold the cabinet to the back panel. Then you tilt the cabinet back (or actually forward-- away from the back panel) and pull it off of the hooks on the base.

Display gives message;Top is open,but it's closed.


Your lid sensor maybe broken.
to check open the printer like you would when you put new ink in and you will see a white sticking down from the lid on the right side. what that does is depresses a switch which tells the printer if the lid is closed or open. if you put your hand under the tab and feel in the hole if the you feel a tab there and it moves and then springs back in position then it is ok but if it is not there or doesn't spring back then the printer is shot.
also call lexmark if it is there but keeps coming up saying lid is open, and they will walk you through some quick fixes that may or may not fix it.

Drum seems out of balance does not allow water to drain because water pump hose kinks


Hi, you will have to open machine, and check spring, maybe one of your spring are broken, or strain, first lift top, and remove sides of machine, put hands on tub and rock complete assemble back until tub centers, if tub is tilted left, spring on opposite side, is loose or broken, if broken, replace, but most time they slip out, this is cause, if machine are overloaded, or not level properly, when washers are not properly leveled, when they reach spin cycle, they could go outside and come back in, just making a point, check you machine level before you start. good luck.

How do you open the dryer to fix the belt


First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.

Broken disk lid


Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.

Disk won't spin


My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...
