Polarioid dVD ''bad disc''

Our polaroid portable DVD player stopped working about 6 months after we purchased it in December 2006. My son did spill a little pop on it and wondering if there is any chance of bringing it back to life. I've tried a qtip with alcohol, but not helping.

Did you clean the lense with the alcohol? You might try again, also wipe away the residue.

If no dice, you might try to contact Polaroid to see if you can get it replaced/exchanged under warranty.

Polaroid portable DVD player error code ''bad disc''


You'd need to open the unit, and the problem is either that the laser and the tray are misaligned, which can be tricky to fix even, or worse, you need a new laser. Either way, the Polaroid dvd player may not be worth getting repaired if it is no longer under warranty.

Good luck!!

My portable dvd player is not working good


It sounds like U have a bad lens. Try a lens cleaner. If it is the lens, it wont read anymore discs. Sometimes it will also make a clicking sound and show disc error/no disc cryptic messages on the screen.

Dvd freezes on a frame


Well, when that has happened to me, I have examined the DVD and there are usually fingerprints on the disk and removing them with plain water on a sponge and drying with a cotton cloth has solved the problem. The more oil from the print the more disturbed the picture.

You might try gently cleaning the laser eye with soft dry Q-tip. Other wise the laser will probably need replacing. I repair and sell portable DVD players.

Polaroid pdm-0732 wont read dvd


I just solved my issue. My 2 year old son set the AV switch on the side of the player to 'in'. I switched it to 'out' and now it works fine.
