Question about Polaroid PDM-0742 Portable DVD Player
Sometimes my dvd player works, but most of the time anymore it tells me bad disc. I know the discs aren't bad.
Hi the chances are the problem you are having is going to be with the laser lense, you will probably find that it is covered in dust and is not reading the disks properly, so if you go into a computer repair or hardware shop you can buy a cd lense cleaning kit you then put the cleaning disk into your dvd player and it will then remove any dust build up and should get it working properly.
If after doing this your still having problems then the chances are the laser is on its way out and may need replacing, the problem with this is that the cost of repair could cost more than buying a new dvd player, so for now i would try the lense cleaning kit and see if that solves your problem.
9 out of 10 of the times it solves the problem so it is worth trying the cleaning first.
Also make sure you dvd's are clean and free from scratches you can run them under a cold tap to clean them and then dry them using kitchen roll just dont press to hard when drying.
