    Same problem here with my PDM-2737 from Walmart. After disc is put in it says, "Disc not recognized". Pretty upsetting considering the unit is about a year old and we used it on maybe 3 road trips. Nice when it worked, but very low durability.

    Have same problem! Only use on road trips and owned for a couple years. Keeps saying "bad disc". We cleaned it several times but no luck. I thought Polaroid would have a durable product.

You might try gently cleaning the laser eye with soft dry Q-tip. Other wise the laser will probably need replacing. I repair and sell portable DVD players.

Cant read the discs,dvd,cd or blu ray, "no disc"


You need to purchase a dvd disc cleaner or buy a can of air from wal-mart and spray out the drawer and the inside of the player with the drawer open,the eye of the dvd player is probably dusty and can't read the disc...and make sure the dvd is clean with no finger prints on it.

If cleaning the lens on the laser does not solve the problem, then you will need a new laser or optical pickup. You may as well buy a new unit.

I get the message "bad disc" with every disc I put in the player.


ok best bet is that your laser (what reads the discs) in your laptop is dirty, use a cd/dvd cleaning disc to clean the laser, can buy them from most computing, music shops

Polaroid pdm-0732 wont read dvd


I just solved my issue. My 2 year old son set the AV switch on the side of the player to 'in'. I switched it to 'out' and now it works fine.

Bad Disc


First determine where the problem lies. This can be done by analyzing what is happening. Is the disc spinning. Is it spinning erratically? If the disc is not spinning, the spin motor is probably defective. But sometimes you can be fooled, if the laser does not detect information of the disc, it will not issue a start spin motor command. If you can get the unit to work with the door open by defeating the switches,(Do not under any circumstances look directly into the laser)If you see the laser then the spin motor is bad, In either case the unit is is probably cheaper to replace than to repair.
