Question about Radio Shack Accurian APD-3955

1 Answer

I have an Accurian 8" Portable DVD Player, not sure if it is the APD-3955, but it will charge, turn on, etc, but it won't read a disc when I put it in. I have tried cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol like a Radio Shack employee recommended, but did not work. Can someone please help?? I don't want to buy another one.

if cleaning it does not solves the problem then its necessary to open the player and replace the lens.usually when a dvd player reads "no-disc", even on a new dis, that points to a problem with the laser itself. The laser uses two focus voltages, one for CD and one for DVD.

The most common one i see is DVD Laser current drops and you have to re-adjust it.

It is a bear to do. You have to disassemble the whole unit to get to the laser head, underneath it there is two screws to turn, one is labelled DVD. You have to turn itslightlyone way and reassemble to test.... you can see this is tedious. You can try it, just take the  batteries out and don't lose the screws.

in portable dvd players the disassembly instructions are mostly the same in all brands. click this link directly  http://www.polaroid.com/company/compliance/electronics.html
if you are not familiar with disassembling and if dont have proper tools to open the player.its advisable to get it repaired from local electronics repair shop.as it will not be too costly issue to get the lens replaced.

thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated,.

My 4 year old APD 3955 stopped working. You can


Check the lens, sometimes dirt gets in there. Try to run a DVD cleaning disk... they are sold at many places, they are cheap and you can still use them for cleaning your CD players and DVD players at home. This should fix the problem.... if not ... try to shake the DVD player gently to remove any foreign matter that could be stuck somewhere...good luck!

after 2 or 3 years of service the battery needs to be replaced.

Batteries have a finite charging "cycles". These cycles runs out every time you charge the battery.

This may sound overly simple but try disconnecting the power from the unit (i.e. unplug it from the wall), wait a few minutes and plug it back in, kinda like a hard re-boot.
