Had similar problem. Found the disk was not rotating. Adjusted the torque on the hold down screws of the drive unit allowed the disk to spin. Still had some motor noise, but DVD would load.

Our dvd player now only works showing movies in black and white. What can we do? It use in color but for some unknown reason the movies are in black and white.


someone must have pressed something mistakenly.

Check the DVD remote and press PAL/NTSC. The color should appear.

Or you could also check the video wire at the back of the DVD and TV, maybe it has loosed contact.

I wish you all the best.

"No" message appears on player front.

Try inserting a cd, almost all dvd players can play cds as well, if it displays the same message you may very well have a defective dvd player, if it plays then you may have a damaged disc. If it plays the cd try a mint condition dvd; also, I'll assume that you know better but in many cases if the dvd player is not defective users are simply loading dvds in upside down. If all this fails return your dvd player to the store or check the warrenty.

I hope this helps, good luck

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...

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Hi Koji, My Toshiba DVD player does the same. It stops playing the disc, and the icon for incorrect disc displays. Often I cannot even start a movie. I keep getting BAD on the readout display also. I try hitting the player, or the stand in which the player is sitting, and sometimes it goes away and the movie plays. I will never buy Toshiba again.
