When I open the cover and place a DVD in the player, it plays upsidedown. A niece used it for a weekend and when it was returned I wasn't able to play the DVD's without twisting the screen and folding it down backwards. I want to play the DVD's with the screen up, much like a laptop. I have tried resetting to factory defaults but that hasn't fixed the problem. Can someone please help me?!
The model 0823a has a button marked "rotate" directly above the swivel screen mounting base. each push of this button will toggle the image by 180 deg. this function is presumably for mounting the unit overhead. hopefully that is all that is needed to fix your problem.

Re: Polaroid, 7" Portable DVD Player
NK, you have a solder connection or wiring that has come loose or is poorly soldered.. Unless you're really good with electronics don't tackle this one yourself... It's probably not an expensive repair either. A reputable shop can have this one back and running in less than an hour...
If you would like to research a good shop in your area goto:
and enter your state and zip info. That site is the National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn. kinda like going to the AMA to find a good licensed doctor...

1.- Turn on the unit on having the cover open. 2.- Press "Set-Up" button and advance to the far right-hand tab "Preferences". 3.- Using the remote control, Enter the follow code: 1379. 4.- Choose the desire region: 1-6 or 0 for all regions 5.- Once the region is chosen, press enter.
this problem is with close open switch.if open cover to insert cd you will find one very small switch which sences open or close.put a drop of cleaning oil in it press it 10 times or replace the switch
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.
