If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.
If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.
If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)
The Polaroid TDA-03211C has the Play/Pause and Stop/Eject buttons on the TV on the side of the TV near the DVD slot. They are separate from the other control buttons. (They are closer to the back of the TV relative to the DVD slot with the stop button the lower of the two. The play button is just below the media card slot behind the DVD slot.) The original remote also a Play button (center two rows above the channel and volume toggle buttons).
If it is a real DVD, try other DVD's to see if they are working. If none of them work, try to see if you can get a warranty replacement on that TV because it's broken. If you are using a burned DVD, there is a good chance that that player won't read many burned DVD types. If you are trying to play a file that you burne onto a DVD and it isn't an actual DVD disc but movie files stored on a DVD then your player isn't playing the fie because it does not have the required codecs to play the file. DVD players that have DivX codecs usually solve this problem. And for 30 bucks at walmart, can't beat it...!
With the dvd loaders in these particular units the laser tends to fault in them relatively fast. Replace the laser loader assembly, which is the entire assembly containing the laser, the mechanism where the disc slides in and out as well as the small motor that spins the disc. Good Luck.
I have a working DVD unit from my 03211c and I part with it for $30.00 you pay the postage. This DVD Polaroid TDA-03211C DVD MECH 926-V00-DSL900Dhas no markings but was built into my 03211c in June of 07. cell: 1-717-781-7907 I also have anything else you you need for his TV. I'm parting it out because the LCD screen is cracked.
