Either needs to be clean or the REGION needs to be set up to 1 or ALL , LETS TRY WITH cleaning the OPTICAL LENS with a dry Q tip , gently rub a few strokes at the lens , and give it a try, if NOT then try to set the REGION to 1 or all, if still not reading the disc , then have to replace the optical lens, good luck , AJ

Problem solved:) We have the Polaroid DPA-07046G. When you open the player there is a yellow sticker on the inside. This sticker had become slightly raised and was causing the disc to be off balance. Removed the sticker and now it works like a charm. Good luck and hope this helps!

You may find the disk is notcompatible with the player, refer to user manual to find out. If you need one visit their web site.

"no disc" error message


Did this problem just start? It may be due to the lens no longer reading the disc. Try a lens cleaner. If your lens went south, it usually is paired with a clicking noise or/and the combination of a no disc/disc error message. I would also recommend staying away from Polaroid dvd players and tv's in the future. They have a habit of not making parts available, especially after the warranty.

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.

Polaroid DVD Player won't charge.


I had the same problem, which I attributed to having the plug in a power strip. Once I plugged it directly into the wall socket, I haven't had a problem since.
