Question about Polaroid PDM-0723 Portable DVD Player
I have a Polaroid pdm-08228bd DVD player that whenever we put a disc in it spins and says it is loading but never does. We have tried many discs, tried a lens cleaner for the DVD player, all with the same results - nothing! Granted, we have had this player for about 7 years and never had a problem til now; but my 4 year old has just loved this thing ever since he knew how to operate it. We would love to think that there is something simple we can do to fix it. Please help if you can!!
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 ..
