Like computers, when a DVD or CD drive give you the 'no disk' error, chances are the the drive has a bad disk motor. The motor tried to spin the disk but cannot so the machine will default to the 'no disk' I found a used machine at this link: http://www.recycler.com/home_electronics/detail.classified?id=RCY-196-12613837&search_zip=&class=5440

    1. Insert the disc and listen closely by placing your ear to close to
      the drawer of the DVD player. After the disc tray has closed, you
      should be able to hear the disc spinning. If you hear no such sound, it
      is common that the disc is not spinning up, which is why you would
      recieve a "No Disc" message when a disc has been inserted. In some
      cases, it can be difficult to hear the disc spinning, so you could
      remove the lid of the player to actually see if the disc spins.---------------------If this is the case, you could try to determine the cause of this,
      which is usually the "hat" above the center of the disc is stuck and
      needs to be repositioned to lay against the top surface of the DVD. If
      you are uncomfortable doing this, you'll want to bring the DVD player
      to a service center.

    2. if it is an older DVD player, and I'm sure it has had its fair share of use.
      Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the
      disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs.
      You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a
      tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try
      it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a
      DVD.

    3. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is
      that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its
      ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will
      still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the
      only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center
      for repair.

    4. There are other possibilities for the players failure, such as a
      defective laser motor (the motor that moves the laser), bad spindle
      motor (the motor that spins the disc), as will as other various circuit
      falures that could be the cause.

    5. Try all things you can do yourself to repair the unit. If none of them
      are successful, you will need to have the unit repaired, or purchase a
      new DVD player. As a general rule-of-thumb, if the unit repair cost
      exceeds 2/3 the cost of a new comparable unit (in both features and
      quality), then don't bother fixing it. You'd be better off with a new
      player.

I have a polaroid 8"


Hello
The battery you use may be new, but haven't enough current capacity to supply the DVD player. DVD players will take much more current in ampears. Check if voltage drops when your DVD player works. You can check it with the help of a multimeter, set to measure voltage. Fist check the battery voltage. Keep the probs of the multimeter connected to the battery terminals, switch on your DVD player, and check whther the voltage drops to a considerable rate. That is, if the voltage at no-load condition is 12VDC, it may go down upto 11.5VDC, and no more drop must be there. If it is so, make sure that the battery is bad. OK.

I have a Polaroid pdm-08228bd that whenever we put


when you open the cover for the DVD you will see the laser ..its a small lens like device mounted on a spring like assembly .. you can manually clean that laser with a soft paper towell soaked in eyeglass lens cleaning solution .. dont spray the solution on the laser directly .. make sure the spindle spins freely in the center where the disk mounts ... when you close the lid and turn power on you should be able to hear the disk spin .. if you can hear it spin and hear some clicking but still wont play then you likely have a worn out laser .. unfortunately the cost of installing a new laser is often greater than the cost of a new DVD player ...
here are a few models that might be worth looking at ..

Polaroid DVD Player won't charge.


I had the same problem, which I attributed to having the plug in a power strip. Once I plugged it directly into the wall socket, I haven't had a problem since.
