Question about Polaroid PDV-0823A Portable DVD Player
When I open the cover and place a DVD in the player, it plays upsidedown. A niece used it for a weekend and when it was returned I wasn't able to play the DVD's without twisting the screen and folding it down backwards. I want to play the DVD's with the screen up, much like a laptop. I have tried resetting to factory defaults but that hasn't fixed the problem. Can someone please help me?!
The model 0823a has a button marked "rotate" directly above the swivel screen mounting base. each push of this button will toggle the image by 180 deg. this function is presumably for mounting the unit overhead. hopefully that is all that is needed to fix your problem.

NK, you have a solder connection or wiring that has come loose or is poorly soldered.. Unless you're really good with electronics don't tackle this one yourself... It's probably not an expensive repair either. A reputable shop can have this one back and running in less than an hour... If you would like to research a good shop in your area goto: http://www.nesda.com/locator/state_search.php and enter your state and zip info. That site is the National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn. kinda like going to the AMA to find a good licensed doctor... Good luck Bill
