Question about Toshiba MW24FN1 24 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

DVD problem When trying to play a store-bought DVD movie, occasionally some of them just won't play. A few that I've tried are brand new out of the package as well as other older ones- it doesn't seem to descriminate. Most of them I have no problem with. The DVD's in question will work perfectly fine on other players. I have cleaned the system and lens and this has had no effect. What could be going on here?

Re: DVD problem

Most likely your pickup table need to be replaced. In some cases you can turn-up the laser amplitude but this is a temporary fix at best. Pick-ups are about $40 - $80 dollars depending on the unit and unless you have the equipment to measure resistance and set the amplitude properly, especially on the new install, don't attempt this repair yourself... A qualified shop can do these in about two hours and probably get the laser for less money than you would pay... Bill

I have just bought a technika 3 in 1 tv but it won't **** the DVD in on DVD mode

if it is brand new take it back for exchange or repair---has to have a warranty if bought new.

Usually when a player will not play the disc it is a bad optical unit inside the set---not economical to repair since only the complete DVD portion is usually available.

Technika tv/dvd the dvd is only in black and white and wont play the discs

you can try using a DVD cleaner disk on your unit, try several times to make cretin it is clean then try your DVD`s again, if the unit was stored in a damp area this may be a problem, DVD players can be finicky due to this, there may also be a manufacturing defect in the unit that made it fail prematurely.

We have a 23" Toshiba with a internal DVD player.

No,tv internal DVD player are not on sale by itself as a seperate unit,only can buy it from the tv corporations themselves and it not cheap and have to have experience to putting it in into the tv internal tv itself.The tv internal DVD player now,could be the laser eye data reader have problems reading mp3 and mp4 files on the DVD disc,which are video files.Now tries to play more than one DVD movies dic,tries like to play like 5 to 6 original DVD movies.One disc don't play tries another DVD disc.Tries this might forcing the laser eye reader to read DVD dics again and than might fix it to read video files again.Or just buy an external DVD player hook it up to the tv and play DVD disc on to the tv video modes.DVD players external devices are really cheap these day,like can buy new one for $40.

The dvd player will play a movie for about 10 minutes then it gets freezes and does not play anymore. It's brand new. had it about 2 months.

I found out this tv/dvd will not play certain movies that are rented from netflix is that their dvd have a restricted thing, and this tv will not read the movies that are on certain disks. It plays movies good that I rented here in town. So theres nothing really wrong with the player itself. I did some reading and this is what I assummed.

Wont Play DVD

any remote should work but i suggest a name brand like sony logitech or phillips because you dont want to have to replace this for a while and namebrands offer more functions than generics.

As for the dvd not playing dvds it appears the parental lock may be enabled preventing movies from starting after previews .

after you obtain the new remote and have programmed it scroll through the tvs set up menu to see if parental lock function is on if not drop me a line so we can narrow things down also try to push enter button on new remote if the play button doesnt start movie.

is the dvd a store bought disc or a burnt dvd? If the disc is a store bought disc I unfortunately can't help you. But if the dvd you are trying to play is burned from dvd burner you are most likely using the wrong type of burnable dvd. There are two types of dvd's you can burn, DVD-R and DVD+R. You need to make sure which one you dvd player can play, some play one or the other, some play both. I have also heard of some older ones that can't play any type of burned disc. Hope that helps Peter
