Hi, I own a Polaroid Portable DVD Player, Model No. PDU-1063…

Customer Question
Hi, I own a Polaroid...
Hi,
I own a Polaroid Portable DVD Player, Model No. PDU-1063 that has recently developed a fault.
It plays perfectly for approx. 1.5 hours, then the screen display freezes. When the screen displays again it is in real time:- I.E. The disc has been running but not showing on screen so part of the film has been missed. The screen display then continues to stop/start erratically making normal viewing of the film impossible.
Any ideas???
Can it be repaired, as in all other respects it is operating ok!!!
The picture quality is superb on this model and I am , therefore, reluctant to dispose and replace if repair is a viable option.
Thanks in anticipation of your assistance.
Kind regards,
Allan
