Question about Polaroid PDM-0711
I used my DVD player last year in an airport, it worked fine. I got on the plane and turned on my dvd player and there was no image on the screen... finally after just listening to my movie.. I opened it up and ever since then I can see half of the screen and there are a million lines running through it... I never dropped it or anything within those 5 minutes. My warranty ran up that month... is there anyway to fix this?
Usually when you have a million lines running through the screen it means the screen is cracked and you have to replace the whole screen. This usually happens when you drop the product or maybe you put it under something that applied alot of force on to the screen. Try to think back and remember if you placed it under alot of pressure at any point. This may have bent the screen enough that it became permanently damaged. Another theory is if you moved the player around alot that the cable that connects the screen to the rest of the player may have come loose. I know that this is a portable device but it can still happen. If you decide to open the player up to check the wire be very careful because the cable is usually paper thin and can break very easily. Lastly it could be that the screen just failed though this is extremely unlikely because they usually test the screen very extensively before it leaves the factory and if it worked there it would most likely work for a long time provided no external factors such as dropping the player occur.
Hope this helps!
