Re: dvd stuck in the dvd / tv

I had this same problem and fixed it too. It was from a flat torsion spring on the loading mechanism that had moved position. It hits against the chassis of the DVD housing preventing the mechanism from seating the disk on the spindle. Result is a stuck disk and/or constantly running loading motor.

Remove the one black machine screw behind the DVD player. DVD player will slide out of TV with its black plastic trim fascia from bay.

Remove two screws that hold fascia panel, remove fascia and lift off top metal cover.

With CD loading slot facing you, the problem spring (in our situation) was at the left. Also identical spring on the right side too. These are the two torsion springs near the front on sides of chassis. The helical loop on the left should be towards the top. If it shifted to the bottom, it can hit the tab with screw used to secure DVD chassis. When this happens, CD loading mech can't complete loading disk onto the spindle. If spring flips when the CD is on the spindle.... disk can't eject.

I used a pair of tweezers to gently grab the spring and "flip" it upwards by pulling it upwards. Spring will work for mechanism in up or down position, but needs to be up to avoid interence.

Solved my problem and DVD has been great since. If it flips back for some reason, then I will try attaching a small piece of plastic to the side of the chassis to contain spring in upright position only.

Re: dvd stuck in the dvd / tv

Same TV, same problem. This TV is terrible. Anyway, I tried the afore mentioned solution, got no results. So then I hit the back of the DVD player. Hard. That worked. Woohoo! That always works.

How to play dvd

If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.

If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.

If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.

I hope this helps.

(note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)

My mother-in-law has a Polaroid HDTV woth built-in

I can help you with your Polaroid HDTV.

If the DVD doesn't start when you place it in the player, look for the Play button on the remote control. There may be a TV/DVD switch on the remote that would need to be changed to DVD.

If the manual below doesn't match your TV, please post the model number of your Polaroid HDTV/DVD combo for more specific help.

I hope that helps.

Built in DVD player on my Polaroid flat screen quit working!

Unfortunately if you tried to remove just the dvd player it would void your warranty under most agreements. the only thing you can do is call the manufacture as for a repair authorization number and take it or send it to an approved repair station.
