Question about Toshiba SD-V392 DVD Player/VCR

Toshiba DVD VCR Combo will not play DVDs now, only CDs will load

I have a two year old Toshiba SD-V393 VCR DVD combo unit that until today worked fine (but there was some skipping with the DVD player) I went on this site to find a possible cure for the occasional skipping issue and saw that the general consensus was to simply clean the lens. I put my lens cleaning disk in and let it do its job and now only music and picture CDs will play, All DVDs end up with the message incorrect disk type.

Does anyone know what the possible cause of this could be????

Reads cds but does not read dvds


There is hope to recover from semiconductor problems such as condesation or overheating. You have to play cd as long as possible, let the unit cool down. Then try dvd again. If works, keep standby power on, forever, to keep moisture out of your dvd/vcr combo.

My Sony DVD/VCR combo will play cds but not dvds. I took the top of the player off and I can see that the dvd spins but it won't play. It used to play everything very well but just stopped working...


Please clean laser lens with good quality cotton bud gently and check dvd disc playback, if still does not play, replace optical lens block.
Let me know model number of your Sony DVD-VCR combo to provide you optical laser block part number info.
Thanks.

Progressive scan


I had the same problem once and the solution is to reboot the DVD player. to do this you need to unplug the unit for 3 or more minutes and then you will have to go through the setup process again but everything should work fine and interlaced (not progressive) should be the dvd format again.

DVDs are playing with green tinge


Greetings and Salutations,

If your using the component outputs from your DVD player I would first check to make sure that the cables for the Red and Blue channels are connected properly. If the cable is connected correctly then try replacing both the Red and Blue channel cable. If this fails to fix the problem try connecting to another component input on your TV if you have one available. 

You might also want to check to see if you switched on the progressive scan switch on the back of the VCR/DVD unit. If you know someone with another DVD player have them bring it over and see if the problem is still exists. 

If the green picture is still present then the problem is and internal problem with the TV and you will need to find a repair center for it. If the problem goes away then the problem is with the VCR/DVD combo unit. You can at this point also try using just the Video Out from the DVD player.

Hope these suggestions will help you with your problem.
