No Valid Disc

Our portable DVD player is now giving us an error message "no valid disc" even though the discs we are trying to watch are valid store bought movies. It is doing this no matter what disc we try to watch. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Re: No Valid Disc

Try this out; Go to your DVD player's settings/setup menu, find the "Disc Lock", set it to "off" if it is already set to "on"

Disc Error:

Take it back to the store if its new or if you bought a warranty and trade it for a new one. If not try calling an electronic store and ask them if they know whats wrongs with it. Be sure to read the instruction manuel for a support phone number and call there too.

"no disc" error message

Did this problem just start? It may be due to the lens no longer reading the disc. Try a lens cleaner. If your lens went south, it usually is paired with a clicking noise or/and the combination of a no disc/disc error message. I would also recommend staying away from Polaroid dvd players and tv's in the future. They have a habit of not making parts available, especially after the warranty.

Getting "Bad Disc" message after Loading message...

If you've had it a long time and used it often, could be the lens is dirty or something wore down and it should be trashed since newer players have more features like usb ports.

Suddenly quit working

Looks like the lens of the player is dirty or damaged. Try a lens cleaner CD first.
If it doesn't work then you will have to get the lens replaced. Since the Player is still under warranty use while you still can..

I put the disc in the player ithen tries to play then it says disc not valid .

Same here!!! We've only used it maybe 8 or 9 times. And it's been worthless for the past month because of it. It reads everything "no valid disk" and nothing will work. And I tried e-mailing customer support several times, with no luck.
