Question about Polaroid PDM-0723 Portable DVD Player

2 Answers

Image I purchased a universal car adapter for my PDM-0723. The cable was rated for a 9V, my player is a 9.5V. We tried it at the store and it worked. I got in the car and it worked fine for 15 minutes. After that, the screen went to black and white lines and a static sound. The adapter also felt very hot. Is the player ruined, or can I purchase a Polaroid cable and be OK?

The problem is that the universal adapter did not supply enough current (amps) for the dvd player. When the adapter got hot it signafied that the dvd was drawing more current than the adapter could provide.

Probably an adapter that supplied low as 9 volts would have worked if the current out put was high enough. this dvd normally requires a power adapter capable of suppling greater than 3 amps at 9.5 volts.

P>S. Probably the DVD is not ruined

I have purchased a replacement power cable for my dm5 pro and it doesn't seem to work. it is a uk ac 9v 1000Ma adapter. what is the problem? how do i solve it? thanks, lee

Make SURE the adapter is NOT a DC output adapter. You need 9VAC output at about 1000ma. (1 amp) Many people try to use "universal" dc adapters and they will NOT work with the DM5.

I lost the 9.5v adapter for my Polaroid PDM-1035 DVD player and want to know where I can purchase another one.

Go to Radio Shack or the like ANY DC 9.5/10 Volt adapter with suitable current rating, say 1 Amp at least should work, also note the Polarity of the Plug, usually though it is Positive to the centre connector but check the unit is usually printed by the power jack in. try to get a switch-mode if you can but a transformer type should work as well.
