Polaroid drm-2001g repair


When I purchased this item I absolutely hated it but once I got past the poor documentation and the lame tech support from Polaroid, I actually began to like it. I seem to have a problem with the dvd burner/player in the unit. It has been giving interment problem for some time now and it seems to have died. The hard drive, recording to the hard drive and play back from the hard drive seem to work fine, but I can not burn programing off to DVD's. Is the DVD unit in the machine replaceable, where can I get one, and it it a simple repair. Or can someone refer me to someone who can make this repair fir me. I don't mind replacing the entire unit but I need to get the recorded data off the hard drive,

    I have the same unit, the Poloroid DRM2001G and I cannot play or burn DVDs. Also, when the machine is cut on it has a loud whine which stops after a few seconds. Everything else works fine.

SOURCE: DRM-2001G weak remote

The range problem with the remote can be fixed by replacing the LED in the remote with a Radio Shack 276-143. The LED is a lot stronger and now the remote works a lot better.

You may also find that the 'receiver' inside the cabinet is pointed at an angle instead of directly towards the 'window'. You can trim the rubber(?) to allow it to point correctly.

SOURCE: replacement remote needed for Polaroid DVDR DRM-2001G

There is a group on the Web that messes around with what they call "JP1 remotes". All remotes of this type have a 6-pin connector that can be accessed/connected by a PC using a special cable. A parallel port, USB, and maybe serial RS-232C connection work.
Go here: http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/mboard/rc-one4all/thread.cgi?5101,4

Read the article. I would suggest reading from page 1. You can program a JP1 remote to do all the functions specified in the graphic on that web page.

SOURCE: vertical flipping

I bet you put it into PAL mode, the European standard. I believe that you can reset to factory default using the menu and it should be okay. If you cannot read and navigate the menu tree, then I think that if you hold the power button on after you start up, it will reset itself. I have not checked the doc to make sure of the last.
You can also get display problems if you pick the Y/R/G component setting in the menu. It is designed for connecting to a high definition using 3 different cables, one for each color. It only supplies vertical on one of those cables, and the TV just doesn't know what to do without the vertical blank signal from 'somewhere'.
Again, a menu setting.

Replacement remote needed for Polaroid DVDR DRM-2001G


You need to change the IR LED in the remote. I swapped in a new one from an old remote and it works great, no pointing and walking up to the unit with the remote.

DVR making bad DVDs


Three suggestions:
1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on
OR
2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode.
OR as a final suggestion
3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine.
This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives.

Polaroid Will NOT edit out Commercials!


You need to post edit the recording;
First unprotect then do a split before the commercial
than split after, then recombine the parts without the ad.
Cumbersome, but it works
