Question about Polaroid 8" Portable DVD Player, PDV-0813A
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.
