Question about Polaroid 7" Two-Screen Portable DVD Player

2nd screen not working

I have all the cables connected properly, the 2nd screen is getting power but stays blue and doesn't show the DVD. In the upper left hand corner there is a circle with an exclamation point in it. Do I need to change the mode to something else? Do something in setup for it to recognize a 2nd screen?

Re: 2nd screen not working

So I had the same thing and I was pretty upset because Walmart wouldn't take it back!  So, I don't know what inspired me to do this, but I simply switched the yellow and black plugs that go in between the screens.  So plug the yellow connector into the black hole on both screens and then the black connector into the yellow holes.  Now it works perfect.  It still doesn't work if I try to switch it back.  Weird, but you might as well give it a shot, it worked for us!

The screen shows a green/ orange screen, even when we play a DVD... How can we make that go away?

How is the player connected to the TV? It could be S-Video, HDMI, RCA, or Component Video cables. My guess is that you're using component video cables. There will be three wires that carry the video signal to the TV, and each wire carries one color. There will be a blue, yellow, and green cables. If one of these cables is not seated properly, it can cause only one or two of the three color signals to make it to the TV, causing the image to be discolored. You should check the connections of the cables. You'll also see the sound cables, probably red and white. Do not get the red video and the red sound cable mixed up!

I also have the TruTech Dual DVD Players with the model Number LMD-5702RT. I need the cord that connects the two screens and provides audio/visual as well as power to the 2nd screen. On it...

I need the exact same cord too. It has stopped working and I can only use one of the two screens for now (the main unit). I have been to BestBuy and RadioShack, but they only have the two-prong version, not the 3-prong one that transmits both audio and video. I was hoping I can buy it on amazon, but did not find it over there either.

I have a v8p4000 does the cord have to be plug up to the screen as as the player in order for the system to work

on mine, the screen/speaker module plugs into the player/base. note the power switch on the upper right side of the screen; this must be on as well as the main power on ( left side of the base). connect the power supply, power on; no other external connections are needed.
the screen can be detached and used as a low quality monitor; connect a/v cable & power supply to the right side of the screen, connect the other end of the a/v cable to vcr or whatever.

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

I have a trutech LMD5702RT portable duel screen dvd player the cable is broke that goes in 2nd screen we get sound but no picture. Can I buy just that cable

If its the red white and blue AV cable on both ends yes you can. If its a red white and blue AV on one end and a audio looking jack on the other end you can too. They sell all those cords at Radio shack or most electronic stores.

I keep getting a Bad Disk error when loading DVDs that I know are fine. When there's no disk loaded, all I see is the blue load screen with the message "loading" in the upper left

there is a ribbon cable in the DVD player that connect the moving laser head to the main circuit board. When this cable becomes damaged from moving over time, it will claim that your DVD is bad (even though it is not). Best to scrap the player and buy a new one.

The cd is working fine. however there is no display on tv.

Ensure that your connections are securely in place; a loose cable can cause signal loss and yet may not be totally obvious from a qick inspection.
