It sounds stupid, but a small piece of a q-tip stick will work just fine. It fits the little hole and you can use the door to hold it down when closed.

Re: Broken Door: Polaroid PDM-0711

You probably cant replace the door because usually they produce a small run of these players and then create a new model and discontinue the old one very quickly. My suggestion is to look if there is a small button around the area the tab would normally go to when you close the door. If you can see this button try to find someting that would keep it pressed down. This tricks the player into thinking that the door is closed. WARNING: This button also activates the laser reading unit so you must have a dvd loaded before you press the button so you dont accidently look straight into the laser unit. IF YOU LOOK INTO THE LASER YOU CAN CAUSE PERMANENT EYE DAMAGE OR EVEN BLINDNESS.

Player comes on but will not play, on the screen it has loading disk and then goes to no disk

That means the disk is corrupted. Please make sure that data is burnt properly to the disk.
