DVD player quit working - Toshiba 20HLV16S

The DVD player is not heavily used, but has stopped working. Only advice I have seen is to take out the DVD player and clean it manualy. Probably dust in the player. Does this sound right?

    I have the same problem. The DVD player just stopped working and is no longer reading discs. The Loading indicator flashes but the DVD will not play. I've tried several DVDs and I have the same problem so I know it's the DVD player that's not working. I've tried to clean the DVD player but that didn't help. I think it's the motor.

SOURCE: My dvd player won't read disks anymore

Yes, put lens cleaning disc in eve player and try to clean its optical lens, if that does not solve the problem, optical lens may need cleaning manually, take off top cover and clean optical lens with good quality cotton swab gently in circular motion and check if it reads disc now.
If problem still not solved then I'm afraid, dvd player needs new optical block and local tv repair shop will help you because optical block replacement requires expertise.

All of a sudden the sound just quit on my Toshiba SDK990 DVD player. Any ideas? TV works fine and have checked different audio settings and cords and all.

First: be sure the TV sound is ok. then, try the DVD sound by using headphones. If it sounds, then try moving by do a little pressure aside the audio connector from DVD to TV while it is connected

DVD Player On Laptop Stopped Working

Does it work for anything? Does it read data or audio CDs? Canyou save files to it? Can you format a CD/RW? If NOT reinstall the DRIVER.
If it does I would reinstall the DVD display program,such as WINdvd.

I was in the middle of watching a dvd and the player stopped working. the stand by light stayed on but nothing else worked. the drawer would not open. I ended up un screwing the machine when I opened it...

Take the thing back for refund if your within your 30 day window and you got the receipt.  Stick with brand name products instead of off label. DVD players are cheap enough now a days to just throw them away and purchase replacements.  Were such a throw away society.
Brands with good luck cause they have better R & D: Sony, Samsung, and Pioneer.
Buy you a new DVD player on Black Friday when they are heavily discounted.  Deals will be abundant this holiday season because retailers are hurting bad for business.  CNN says Blue Ray players will be heavily discounted down to $150-200 depending on what model and features you get.

The Toshiba DVD player won't play a DVD nor will Windows Media Player play a DVD. Downloaded another free DVD player from web and it worked momentarily then quit.

Check the Toshiba site for updated drivers for your dvd player. Also check the recall section for your particular model dvd player. They had several that were recalled.

The DVD player could be defective. If it is not seen in the device manager within Windows, then it is not being seen at all by the Operating System.

Check your connections to the DVD drive. On many laptops, the DVD can easily be removed and reinserted.

DVD stop playing after 20 minutes

Hi Liorpe,

It is possible the Laser is not sliding all the way up and down its rails. Lint , dust, screws sometimes get in the way of the lasers travel to completely read a disc. They do start at the center of the disc and read outward. Sounds like if it will do 20 minutes or so and then quit, its not a heat problem so much as your laser has only 20 minutes of dvd play travel on it rails before it gets stuck. Seen it bunch.
