Error 02-9E Means there is a scratched or otherwise unreadable disc. The problem could be the laser as well. This error can mean any of the following:
Improper media Bad burn/copy of disc
Improperly adjusted laser - requires an alignment
Dirty Laser Lens (smokers will experience this more often)
Laser failure etc.
Try changing the CD/DVD you are using and if you are still getting the same error, then try to visit you nearest Pioneer Service center and get your headunit's laser tested for allignment. How much you'd invest for repair must be below the cost of a new one or it's not worth it.
The error means that the player doesn't recognize the disc. This can be caused dirt on the lens or the optical drive lens not tracking properly (It isn't looking where the data was burned on the disc.) Problems with the disc can also cause the issue (disc not finalized, scratched, etc).
Try a lens cleaner and a different dvd. Otherwise, it probably isn't worth fixing, imo.
You'd need to open the unit, and the problem is either that the laser and the tray are misaligned, which can be tricky to fix even, or worse, you need a new laser. Either way, the Polaroid dvd player may not be worth getting repaired if it is no longer under warranty.
its about time you get a new DVD Player...What type is it??? if it is a expensive one it is probably worth getting repaired but if it is a cheapy..then throw it away coz its not even worth looking at...there are the biggest pain to fix!! Best solution is to buy a new one!
If you are using original discs and have the problem. Try with a cleaning disc and is still the same, check for calibrating the optic lens. About how much is the replace or the calibrating you have to ask on the repair shop or manuf. website. Sometimes, is better buy a new one because the technology moves so fast it makes the same technology disposable.
check to see if the disc spins......As in place the disc in the DVD player with the label in a position that is readable to you....Put the disc in close the tray and wait a few seconds. Open the tray and se if the disc actualy has moved. If it hasent then the motor is bad and not worth replacing!
Try the disks in another DVD player. If they play with no problems in another player, then you have a hardware issue with your Sony. Nowadays, if it is out of warranty, fixing it is not worth it, because it is cheaper to replace, at least in the USA.
