Question about Toshiba MW27FN1 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Disc ok when played on other dvd players. In Toshiba tv/dvd player, the disc stops. skips or has static. Can it be repaired? or can external dvd player be connected to by-pass built in unit?
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.

Here are the codes: take a deep breath:
0181, 1283, 0183, 1292, 0087, 0677, 0859, 0872, 1183, 1383, 1683, 1731
You may find that these don't work. Often, with combination pieces like yours, you will find you are lucky if you can get a universal remote to turn it on and change the volume and little more. The fact that Toshiba did not build this peice can compound the problem. My suggestion, if you can't get the universal to program up, is to use the original remote for the set. If you do not have the original remote it is available from www.encompassparts.com for around $15.00 plus shipping. The original part number for the Toshiba remote is 72796929.

The DVD drive on that unit will probably no longer be available for replacement from manufacturer but you can usually find a good working drive on Ebay at a reasonable price. just type in model number and see if one comes up. Another place to check would be shopjimmy.com
