Question about Toshiba SD-6980 DVD Player

1 Answer

Won't play any DVDs

Worked fine one day, then stopped working today. Discs won't load - after about 30 seconds of noises, display says "bad disc." Tried multiple discs, so not a disc problem.

I mostly first always recommend a dvd lens cleaner to clean the lens incase there is something on the lens.

Is the player underwarranty? the lens may have a issue other than dirt and might need to be replaced.

What happened last time it worked fine? try unpluging the dvd player for 5 minutes and try again.

    If you have unusual noises you most likely have a faulty drive or something extra is inside the drive.

Won`t play dvd`s.try a cleaning disc no luck!possible dvd diode gone?any help please.Nigel...


Hi Nigel,
There are three reasons for discs not playing.
First, if the set has been lying for some time, the loading belt becomes lose and the loading is not complete. The result is no disc play.
Second, there is dust on the lense. Again the result is no disc play.
Third, the lense unit has gone bad or weak. Here also the result is no disc play.

Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds


You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

Cds fine; dvds won't load


Most likely the DVD laser lens is dirty. Unplug the CH-DVD 300 from the wall outlet, wait 5 minutes, then remove the top cover. Next, remove the rectangular metal plate which covers the area where the CD or DVD disc would be when in the player's tray. Underneath the rectangular plate you should see two small lenses. Gently clean these lenses using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol. Reassemble the CH-DVD 300 in the reverse order that you disassembled it, plug it back into power, and now it should read your DVD discs just fine.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs


Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.
