Question about Polaroid Portable DVD Player PDM-0822BD

2 Answers

Not sure if I'm posting a second time, forgive me if so.

DVD Polaroid 8" portable player. Was working fine. Never dropped or misstreated. One day this past week was using it and the screen went black. Shut it off and back on again and it worked fine. Then 2 days later, using the charger, but no lights, no power, nothing. Unplugged, replugged and finally had power again. Now nothing is working at all. Even tried new outlet, nothing. Daughter taking it to the beach on Wednesday, someone please help so she won't blame her 6 yo brother!

    Correction, model number shows as a 7". Not sure about the battery. But remembered that it also was acting weird in the car with the car adapter the other day.

  • Zachsmom01 Jun 01, 2008

    Also, how long do warranties generally run?

  • Zachsmom01 Jun 02, 2008

    yes, purchased at Target this past December. Going to try to return and replace with Target. Anyone have any other ideas? I need to get it replaced or fixed by tomorrow night. Ugh.

It does sound like a hardware problem, is it under warranty? I'd have it checked and possibly get repaired for free.

    warranties can go from 1 year to 3 years in most cases. you have to check with your dealer. do you still have the receipt?

  • Ekse Jun 02, 2008

    warranty is your best shot, might take longer than that. takeing it apart yourself and trying to fix it would void the warranty and we would most likely end up with a broken player or paying for parts..



    Warranty is the way to go here.

I have a polaroid portable dvd player that plays cds fine but dvds take about 5 minutes just for it to say no disc. when I put in no disc it takes 5 seconds. I've cleaned the laser and it did nothing.

It sounds like there may be an issue with the DVD drive in your Polaroid portable DVD player. This can often be caused by a malfunctioning laser or a problem with the drive itself.
Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Check the DVD for scratches or damage. A damaged DVD may not be able to be read by the player, causing it to take longer to recognize the disc.
  2. Clean the DVD drive. Use a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe the lens of the DVD drive. You can also try using a DVD drive cleaning kit, which includes a special cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth.
  3. Check the connections. Make sure that all of the connections between the DVD player and the TV or other display device are secure.
  4. Reset the player. Try unplugging the DVD player and then plugging it back in after a few minutes. This can sometimes reset the player and fix any issues.
If none of these steps help, the issue may be with the DVD drive itself. In this case, you may need to have the player serviced by a qualified technician. Alternatively, you may want to consider purchasing a new DVD player if the cost of repairing the existing one is not cost-effective.

I have a polaroid 8"

Hello
The battery you use may be new, but haven't enough current capacity to supply the DVD player. DVD players will take much more current in ampears. Check if voltage drops when your DVD player works. You can check it with the help of a multimeter, set to measure voltage. Fist check the battery voltage. Keep the probs of the multimeter connected to the battery terminals, switch on your DVD player, and check whther the voltage drops to a considerable rate. That is, if the voltage at no-load condition is 12VDC, it may go down upto 11.5VDC, and no more drop must be there. If it is so, make sure that the battery is bad. OK.

The problem of Polaroid DVD-players is too suggen cuttofs during playback. Usually there is no "low battery" warning 5 minutes before it just cuttofs. Usually it has 4 hours playback time.
Probably you need to replace the battery.

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.
