If cleaning the lens on the laser does not solve the problem, then you will need a new laser or optical pickup. You may as well buy a new unit.

Shows all disc as bad


if you have a dvd lens cleaner tried to clean it first. if still no disc error, look for the spindle motor if it is rotating while you are playing with a disc. if not, check for motor worn out at this time you will need to remove the cover to access the internal part.

I have a portable 7" dvd player PDM-0743. When I insert discs it says "bad disc". I have tried several discs and it says the same.


First thing-- try a disc drive cleaner (available at electronics stores) OR if you can see the laser lens when you open the tray you can clean it with a Que-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
If that doesn't work, let me know.

Polaroid portable DVD player error code ''bad disc''


You'd need to open the unit, and the problem is either that the laser and the tray are misaligned, which can be tricky to fix even, or worse, you need a new laser. Either way, the Polaroid dvd player may not be worth getting repaired if it is no longer under warranty.

Good luck!!

It Loads but doesnt spin and said "no disc."


Try cleaning the lens with a DVD Disc Cleaner or Methylated Spirit and a Q-tip, rub the lens slowly in a clockwise motion, leave to dry and put in a DVD, if it doesnt work try a CD but make sure they dont have any scratches or dust on them, if a CD works ( or not ) then your lens is knackered.

DVD Player that repeatedly says NO DISC for Polaroid PDM-0752


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

Shows bad dics all the time


I have finally fixed ya you BAD DISC error message on the Polaroid PDM-0743 ok, listen carefully, first try cleaning the eye lens in the dvd player with a Que Tip with "distilled water" or with "rubbing alcohol" and then let dry, put movie in, turn power on, and it MIGHT WORK? but my guess it will still say BAD DISC, so if that happends it's take apart time you will only need one tool <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/Tools.jpg"></p> Take out the battery and Flip the unit over where the DVD players LCD SREEN is sitting on your lap you should find alot of black screws just un install the screws on the back <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/backofplayer.jpg"></p> but wait take this sticker off too. <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/sideofpalyer.jpg"></p> and after that <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v609/goodold56/laserlensscrew.jpg"></p>
