Re: DVD plays with sound but no picture

Have you checked the unit on another input or another set to eleminate the video input? also try the video cable. If theres sound and no video and you tryed then the video output amp in the player has a problem and the only way to fix this would be with a schematic and a scope to trace out the video signal. Good luck

Check the line carrying your video signal. See if it is damaged or not hooked up properly. It is usually the yellow wire, although it can be any number of colors.

Loud clunking when loading & playing....

Same problem. Took mine apart, and it appears that shaft of the motor that spins the CD/DVD has gotten wobbly - probably due to a worn bearing. This would explain

Not worth fixing - even if you could find a replacement motor. DVD players are so cheap and feature-rich now, that it would not be worth the time and money to replace just the motor.

I would not continue to use the player in this condition. I noticed some white dust around the rim of the tray when it is open - that tells me that the DVD is scraping on the tray. There is a serious risk of damaging your media. And considering that you can get a brand-new DVD player for the price of 2-3 DVDs...

Toshiba DVD SD-3980SU2 or SC2 player loads every disc as "bad disc"

Toshiba says:
Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players spacer.gif To ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to maintain the integrity and quality of our products, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. is issuing an important product update. This is not a safety issue.
Toshiba is committed to customer service and to continuously improving the quality of its products. It has come to our attention that certain DVD players bearing the model numbers SD-3980 and SD-K750 may at some point in their life stop playing discs due to a component part failure. In such case, the error message "bad" will be shown on the unit's display. Affected units will have "SU2" at the end of the model name (e.g., SD-3980-SU2), which can be found on the back of the unit.
If you own either of these models and experience the issue described above, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at 1-800-631-3811 for information on how to obtain a replacement unit.

I've had the same symptoms on the last two Sony DVD's that I've rented. I managed to get around this by hitting one of the menu buttons after the loading message stopped.
