Question about Toshiba SD-3800 DVD Player

1 Answer

My dvd player skips.

I've tried different discs so I know it's not the disc itself. I can also hear the motor/fan running, which I don't remember before.

Run a good dvd cleaner. After cleaning check with a known good dvd. Hopefully the problem is fixed. Good luck.

Disc inserted but NO DISK message appears


Try other discs to see if its still working properly...most likely the recording on the disc is not burnt properly or there's something wrong with the disc, (ie, scratched or surface dirt etc) or the DVD player just can't read the disc...for example can it read the type of disc(does it read dvd+r or dvd-r, or both?--- if i remember rightly)..... I've had discs that have had bad recordings but can still be read if placed into tray a particular way around... randomly try different positions, also cleaning disc as you go...depending on how desperately you want it to read the disc...could also be bad disc batch... there could be many reasons...

My CH-300 dvd player's door won't open when I try to insert a disc.


Unplug it for a minute or so. Maybe it just needs to reset.

How to repair dvd player v zon says wrong disc


Hi Vzon DVD Player,
Before you fix anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem first to know what needs fixing. Since DVD players can play different kind of media formats like Audio CD, VCD, mp3, etc, please try the following
1. Turn on the DVD player and set the program to DVD. some player needs to be setup due to multiple functionality (can play mp3 on flash drive, etc..)
2. insert different Media CD as mentioned above if your player will play them. (if they play, try to insert the DVD you want to play)
3. Try different DVD disc
4. If all the above don't work, try to clean the laser head using the standard disc cleaner.
5. retry the DVD disc
6. If the player still don't play your DVD, probable issue would be the laser head or the disc motor.
7. Please bring them to you nearest Electronic repair shop for further assessment.

Good luck and thanks!

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

A disk in a series of exercise discs plays only in Spanish. My young daughter had the remote and, in a few quick buttons, made the language and writing change to Spanish only and I cannot, no matter what I...


The problem is not the disc itself but your DVD player. If other discs still play in English, and it is just this one disc that plays in Spanish, then your player is using some sort of stored setting to recognize your preference for spanish on that particular disc.
Forgive me if you've already done this, but try turning unplugging the DVD player for a period of ten seconds or so, and then plug it back in. If there is a reset button, press it. See if the disc still plays in Spanish after that.
If so, you may need to navigate the DVD menu of the offending CD to turn off the language setting your daughter selected. If you don't speak Spanish, try navigating to the language settings on one of the other discs with the English menus. Memorize how you got there, and take the same path through the Spanish language menu. Return the language setting to English, and exit.
Hope this helps.
