Question about Polaroid PDM-0711
Player comes on but will not play, on the screen it has loading disk and i can hear the disk turning.what you think? Get bad disc reading
I think your DVD Player could have been damaged while it was in storage, this sounds like there is a problem with the lens (laser), i am going to suggest that you take it to a repairman and ask him to fix it or buy a new laser for your DVD Player attempt to fix it yourself.
If your DVD player is still under warranty, you should take it back to the retailer and have it repaired or refunded.
This could also be caused by "un-married" Player and Disc, if you bought the DVD Player in one country and bought the DVD's in a different country, this could also cause the problem. If the DVD's are copied, that could also cause it.
Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as if it helped you.

Often this is indicative of either a dirty disc (unlikely if you tried several) or a dirty or weak laser optics. The easiest user action possible is to clean the "eye" using cotton buds. It might help to likewise clean the inside (or at least what ever is reachable/exposed) with a can of compressed air. Additional lubrication wherever applicable. Alternately, a CD cleaning disc may also be used similar to those used for CD ROMs of PCs which are normally/readily available from most computers shops/stores.
Of course should cleaning fail, it may be time for replacement of the optics or considering cost, the entire unit. Sorry
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa..
