Question about Polaroid TDA-03211C 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

My DVD doesn't work. It indicates that it is loading but does not turn on. Sometimes when I turn the TV on without a disc in DVD in it, it makes a loud humming sound like it's trying to find the DVD.

    Thank you, Sir.

  • chargerz1206 Dec 31, 2010

    Thank you. I went ahead and took your suggestion because we already had a blue ray player hooked up to it but the noise coming from the TV was aggravating.

    Yes I will. Thanks.

It's normal that it tries to find out if a disk is inside it at startup, it's not normal that you can hear it: it should be quiet and almost instant. Just 2 possible causes for why this (and the disks not being recognised) happens, and neither is good:
1. the laser sensor in the reading head has ben caked in dust or has failed: you will have to open the dvd unit and clean it manually with a can of compressed air and a q-tip. ; if the problem isn't fixed then the sensor is dead - the entire mechanism will have to be replaced.
2. the control processor of the dvd unit is malfunctioning and is unable to process the data correctly; unfixable, the entire dvd unit will have to be replaced.
In either case is will be unreasonably expensive: for the same money you could buy a good separate player. Best solution is to just disconnect the power cable going to the dvd unit to disable it permanently and buy a separate one.

I have 2 problems with my lg hb 966trw: a)


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


No power
  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
  2. Check if the main power has been switched on.
    (DVD player's power supply transformer could be burned out)
Screen is "frozen" or completely black, or Power button does not work
  1. Try turning the power off and wait 3 seconds before turning it on again.
  2. Make sure the TV and VCR (if connected) are set to the correct channel or line.
Does not play disc
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
No sound
  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.
switching regions:
    • 1
Turn on your DVD player.
    • 2
Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.
    • 3
Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.
    • 4
Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.
    • 5
Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

My DHA-S680 dvd changer will not playback any of the movies I load into the unit. After shuffling through the discs in the sleeve, the changer indicates that no discs have been loaded.


It probably needs a new magazine. The other possibility is that all of the discs are loaded upside down, but I'm sure that's that's not likely.

Technika tv


It sounds that the problem to your TV is with its DVD loading tray. A pure mechanical fault indeed. Not loads the disc properly to its seating. A motor fault, or a gear wheel fault, or a leaf switch fault could be. Anyway, you have to take the DVD mechanism out from the TV, to get the actual problem could be resolved. Really this is a semi skilled work. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case.

GPS indicating check map dsc error


This is a common navigation radio issue on this vehicle. The message "Map DVD read error" comes on randomly.... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Make sure your Map DVD is clean and without fingerprints or scratches first. If it the disc is okay, the issue, unfortunately, is within the radio itself. The only correction I've seen for this problem is to replace the radio itself. Also note, that if the radio is replaced, it will have to be reprogrammed by a GM dealer to correctly set up your vehicle's options and learn the vehicle's VIN so the radio will unlock.

Dvd reading error


Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs

Sony dvd player doesn't read disc says no disc when loaded


This would indicate the laser pickup assembly is the problem, try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if no change, far cheaper to replace the stereo.
