I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.

You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.

In the lid should be a mgnetic plate that holds the disc to the motor spindle (much like slight pressure would). Inspect it to make sure it's free moving and seating all the way when the lid is closed. I had one unit where the spindle on the motor shaft had slid down slightly causing the magnetic plate to not seat down all the way. Also, if the magnetic plate is removable, try placing it on the disc with the lid open and bypassed and see what happens.

Hope that helps...

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Other than that there is little that can be done. The optics are having trouble reading the disc. You can confirm this by trying a music CD. If the CD works, it is a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs


Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

Player Does not play any type of Disc


Press case lid where it attaches to player. If this makes unit react you have a defective lid switch. You can probably put some weight over it to hold lid down and it will operate. Otherwise switch must be repaired
