Question about Toshiba SD4980 DVD Player
I assume that's short for "bad disc", but it happens for every DVD I try to play. Any ideas?
Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players 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.

hi... the problem might be in ur dvd... If ur dvd is perfect and u found that ur player has some problem means the best solution is that to clean up ur dvd player lense which plays a vital role in reading ur dvd when u insert into it...For cleaning up ur lense all u need is a lense cleaner dvd available in electronic shops.. u can purchase it and play that dvd as normal one.. ur problem will get solved..

yes that is very possible. cleaning the lens of the dvd player should happen atleast once a month. it can also be that the lens itself is scratched or the lase does not reach the disk tracks due to dust or bad handling

SOURCE: wont recognized disc
I got it work work with mine. Here's how: I removed the top cover and put in a disk to see what happens. I realized it had to be a motor problem because the dvd player was having trouble spinning the disk. I removed the part that had the motor and sprayed some air into it to clean it. It works perfectly now!!
