Problems reading dvds


Have you tried cleaning the lens of the portable player? You can purchase a DVD cleaning disc, this disc has microfiber brushes which clean the laser len assembly of the player as the disc spins.

Hope this helps

After playing a cd in unit will no longer read DVDs


Had the same symptom. The unit would play CDs but not DVDs. The DVD laser was at fault. Purchased and replaced laser unit KHM-313AHC (ebay- $20) and it now works fine.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

My Poloroid DVD will play the Commercial DVDs like Fiox & Hound and Stuart Little, but suddenly will not play the 30 minute PBS Kids Songs DVDs and the Little Einstein Dvds-they played fine before, but I...


I read the other people's problems with the same type DVD player and discovered that the player is only covered by a 30 day warranty...and it would cost more to fix than it is worth. I will just never buy another Poloroid......a lesson learned! I will use our laptop to play the 30 minute DVD's that the player won't play and when the player dies, it dies!
