My Polaroid DVD player has been used very little. I charged the battery; put a dvd in and it says "Loading" and never starts playing the movie.

    Thank you. The alcohol cleaning did not help at all. I guess I'll either try your next suggestion or just throw it away, although I'm disappointed...I thought Polaroid would be a good brand to buy!

    My polaroid dvd player won't play discs. When inserting the disc the dispay reads bad disc or no disc. Could this be the electronic eye that bad? I've already tried swabbing the eye with alcohol.

Sounds as if the EYE is dirty. Look closely at the spindle (cd mounts on) and try to locate the glass eye. Swab with alcohol gently, I mean gently.

If still bad, then the eye transport mechanism needs to be replaced. Not hard couple of screws and flex cable, look for part number and then go to matelectronics.com good luck, be safe..

Hello
The battery you use may be new, but haven't enough current capacity to supply the DVD player. DVD players will take much more current in ampears. Check if voltage drops when your DVD player works. You can check it with the help of a multimeter, set to measure voltage. Fist check the battery voltage. Keep the probs of the multimeter connected to the battery terminals, switch on your DVD player, and check whther the voltage drops to a considerable rate. That is, if the voltage at no-load condition is 12VDC, it may go down upto 11.5VDC, and no more drop must be there. If it is so, make sure that the battery is bad. OK.

On most of the set top DVD players you use the monitor button or the remote control menu button to access the mode that flips the display (invert). The mode is for those who mount the units to the ceiling of a vehicle for rear passengers to view. You might have to have a DVD playing at the time or just loaded in the stop mode to access the feature.

It could depend on the type of media you're using. I noticed that certain types of self made dvd's don't play in this player.

Movie freezes


Grease the slide rails with a little smudge of vaseline - especially if the mechanism is noisy. There is another reason for it that I have not worked out, but on 2 machines the grease did the trick.
