Question about Polaroid 7'' Portable DVD Player
When i try to watch a disk the player clicks, the disk does not spin, the lens head bobs up and down, then a few seconds later an error message comes up - "no disc". Please help.
The lens could be bad. Have you tried cleaning it ? The parts are sensitive, if it has been dropped there's a good chance it's broken.

Try another disk, if not this unit may be broken and repair may not be economically to your advantage. These drives where out - they are a mechanical spinning part.

If you are using original discs and have the problem. Try with a cleaning disc and is still the same, check for calibrating the optic lens. About how much is the replace or the calibrating you have to ask on the repair shop or manuf. website. Sometimes, is better buy a new one because the technology moves so fast it makes the same technology disposable.

In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working , if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. hence the rejection but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive , if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
But if any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of the processor board
