Question about Toshiba MD20FM1 20 in. TV/DVD Combo
DVD player won't play some of my discs, and has trouble with most of them. I keep getting an error message "incorrect disc". Some of the discs have been able to read after repeatedly inserting and ejecting the disc. Wondering if a cleaning disc would help if available. thx.

Sometimes the problem is CD DISC, Next Is the laser lens, cleaned the lens with 100% cotton buds.. or if not working after you cleaned the lens, replace the laser eye A new one!

This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.

LOCAL TV REPAIR SAYS THAT, WHEN THIS HAPPENS, THE DVD PLAYER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND WILL COST ABOUT $125 TO DO SO, WHICH IS NOT AN OPTION AS WE ONLY PAID $100 FOR THE WHOLE THING.

If the player displays this message for every disk you've tried to play (presuming you've tried several) there is likely something wrong with the DVD mechanism and it needs to be repaired or replaced. Some would telll you to purchase DVD lens cleaner and try that, however, in my experience this is usually a waste of money. I have yet to see a DVD with a lens so dirty that it wouldn't play any disk until it was cleaned and then it played everything. If you're under warraty the repair/replacement will likely only cost you shipping of the player to an address you'd get from the manufacturer or your manual. If this is attached to your TV, you'll get in-home service if the screen is big enough. Oherwise you'll have to carry the unit in or ship it someplace for exchange/repair.

The DVD player is region locked and will only play DVDs from a particular region. The cheap DVDs are probably region 0 and so will work on any DVD player. You can scour the internet for a code hack to change the region (I've had a quick look and not found anything).
