That broken part you refer to could be better known as the disc platter. It is part of the spindle motor in many models (it is either attached to the motor by a special compound or it is molded to the shaft).

I am not sure if this part is available or economical to replace in this model (alignment could also be a factor), a majority of service centres, once they see that the disc platter is damaged, assuming it is bonded to the motor, will declare this unit U/S.

Sadly, that is the death knell on this one. It would be cheaper and easier to buy a new player. But, as I have often posted, it is up to you. You can ask a workshop about this one, but they may say something similar to (or the same as) what is posted here.

A broken disc platter in any optical device is serious, and usually non-replaceable.

No Disk


When I try to play a DVD, operation seems normal, the unit makes a slight noise like the disk is rotating and "Loading" is displayed. Then after about 30 seconds the message "No Disk" is displayed. Then just the Polaroid screen is displayed. I have lost the remote control but surely the unit will play using the front panel buttons. One thing, only the remote is named as having a Setup Button in the manual but the unit has no such button.

No video - just a white screen


So I am guessing you have audio and no video, your monitor has went out. you can check and see if ribbon cable is slightly uplugged, but maybe just a bad monitor. These happen usually from a drop or hard hit to the unit.
