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!

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.
Sounds like the optical drive either needs 1 of 2 things. (1)Try cleaning the optical drive with a cleaning kit (2) replace the optical drive. However it may cost more to replace/repair it that it is worth...
I was a circuit board engineer for the on-chip set. there was a major techical issue with the units but due to the cost of investments by polariod, they decided to sell them to the public anyway. the promblem is in the chip that only works for a very short time before is overheats and the system will show "bad disk"

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.
