Question about Polaroid PDV-0700 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Suddenly stopped working

Hi We have been happily using the player every day since we bought it a week ago, but now, for no apparent reason (we treat it very nicely) it won't play anything. When I power it up, instead of the blue screen that says 'loading' I get a screen that is black, but not as black as the screen when it's off, and I hear a quick attempt at starting, and then nothing. What can I do? Thanks.

Re: suddenly stopped working

First of all return it if you can, if not try tapping on the top of it and see if door is closing properly. this maybe a temp. fix. But if problem most stores already know how often they have problems with these players.

I bought this particular unit, years ago. And, though I don't watch dvds very often, the remote control stopped working this week. I thought that the reason was because of the batteries that were in the...


Apparently, the original remote is no longer available, but it always worth trawling eBay for used remotes. I've found many unavailable remotes for customers there. have a substitute remote available for $19.99 plus $7.95 shipping = £27.94 total.

I will try some other sources and will post back if I can find an original.

DUR-7 charging problem

Are you sure it is not the charger itself at fault here?

If you have or know someone with a multimeter get them to check if any voltage is present on the charger plug of the cord. Batteries do not suddenly stop they usually give less and less time in uptime mode before they finally stop altogether. I would suspect the charger or charging circuit.yes it can be fixed

The dvd recorder has stopped recognising dvds that previously it would play quite happily. Is the likely cause a dirty lens or is it more likely to be something to do with the spindle? I get the "cannot...

I presume you hade cleaned the discs and the players optical lense before posting this request and also tried them on another player?

Basicaly If they do not work on other players then the discs have now failed for some reason: many budget priced discs I have come across only work for a few years.

If you have a 'spindle problem' then your laser is probably slowly moving off track. If so you should be able to record and then playback on a GOOD disc for a while.

Pioneer DBP-51FD Blu-Ray

I bought mine four days ago and it would not pay the new James Bond Blue-Ray. The screen said your player needs an update. I downloaded the firmware, and it still did not work. I took the disc down to Best Buy and it played fine on an identical DBP 51-FD. Their tech came out with a replacement player and it played fine. Now, however, it will not play the DVD Happily Ever After 2, eve after the firmware update. Strangely enough, the other player played that DVD fine.

In other words, take it back and get another one.

Various LG DVD Player

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
