Question about Toshiba MW27FN1 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

Open Question

Toshiba DVR16 STB combi won't record on DVD's.

I am using the usual discs CD-R and it just comes up with a message saying the disc cannot be recorded or played. Also when I press the eject button it just says open and then does not do anything. I just wondered if anyone knew how to do a factory reset on toshiba?

I had to use the product title below as mine wasn't listed

SOURCE: Toshiba TV Combo MW24FP1, DVD player doesn't work on some discs

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.

Hello, you can go to the toshiba web site and download the manual from there.
The other option is to go into the TV menu, and select the timer rec set selection and access it there and fill in the times for the program you want to recording and that should do it.
I hope tihs helps.

SOURCE: DVD PLAYER SAYS "INCORRECT DISC" AFTER "READING DISC"

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.

SOURCE: DVD Computer Compatibility (Toshiba DVD/VHS Recorder D-VR7KC

You need to make sure you close the DVD when you finish recording. Then put it in a PC and use Intervideo Win DVD to play it. My problem is that I am trying to convert it to an MP format so I can capture it with video software and make a movie. Not sure if I can save it in an MP format in the first place with my toshiba d-vr7kc dvd to vhs recorder. Do you know if this is possible?

Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Need Toshiba remote access code for this product so I can use a universal remote to operate the VCR and DVD

remote codes are set by the manufacurer of the remote not the tv. if there are any others not listed in instructions for remote, the manufacturer of remote would have them. most combo unit are not able to be programmed into universal remotes due to the fact that there are alot of specialized function buttons on original remote. you can obtain a replacement remote thru toshiba

My alba tvd3407 tv combi does not play my DVDs it just say no disc I have used a cleaning disc to no prevail can anyone give me any advise as to weather I can fix the problem or if it is beyond repair


If not reading or saying no disc it is either a dirty optical pickup unit or a bad one.

Dirty can be dealt with--bad usually means but a new set or external DVD player.

DVD recorder not recording any more


I have found that you get what you pay for in electronics. I bouoght a Cyber Home recorder, it lasted about 15 months before it went out.
I had another off brand ( don't remember name) that also didn't last. I have an older, I think it's a Panasonic, at least 5-6 years old. It won't reord on DVD+R, only on DVD/RW discs.
So, first I say you bought ****.
Buy name brand only it lasts longer.
Second, these things don't last to long.
I have a player only that is 5 + years old that still plays movies.
I haven't used the Panasonic for about a year. I do use it to PLAY movies still.

WRONG DISC ERROR WHEN PLAYING A DVD


HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main board doesn't receive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.

Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.

You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.

you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Please rate and have a great day:)

My tv dvd combi 21pt6820/05


These units use a belt for the loading mechanism. If the belt slips at all, the loading will not complete and lock. This will prevent the unit from reading the disc. Try loading a music CD. If hte CD plays ok, then the optics assembly is in need of at least a cleaning or replacement.

Can't record DVDs


OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!
