Hi hannesswart,
Yes, Region 2 is for Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East. Since you're unit is in correct region and same with the disc you are trying to play and still it came up with the "no disc" error, it means that the fault is in the optical lens assembly.

If you have necessary tools and test instruments, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting try the steps below to solve your problem.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust and any fine foreign objects the lens can't read any disc. If you have a DVD Lens cleaner, play it to the unit. If this is not available you may manually clean the optical lens. Open the cover and gently clean the eye of the lens by smooth,clean,soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this, just a gentle stroke only.
2.Check the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.

Hint : Most of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
If the above steps didn't cure the problem, high chance that your optical lens was faulty.

If you can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the symptom.

Also, check if your unit is under warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the cover(it will void the warranty).


Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Try cleaning the unit with a cleaning cd you can purchase this at any store that sales movies or what not if that still does not work you may need to replace the unit itself or try fixing it by purchasing a optical laser replacment for this.

Toshiba Flat screen VCR/DVD combo DVD doesn't work


that means that the DVD player was unable to read the disk .. that could be caused by dust on the laser inside the unit .. or it could be that your laser is just getting weak ... you can purchase a cleaning disk (a few dollars) it has some little brushes mounted on it that sweep away stuff on the laser .. unless its smoke .. smoke has to be professionally cleaned off the laser or you can do it if you are brave enough to take everything apart .. i use lens cleaning solution..

Toshiba reads no disc


Dust infiltration is a likely culprit. Unplug the unit, open the case. Take a cotton swab and wet it with a small amount of glass cleaner. Gently wipe the laser lens several times without applying pressure, then use the other end to finish cleaning it off and to dry it. Often, so much dust gets inside these units and coats the objective lens it can't see the disc anymore. Give it a try, might work after this operation. I've fixed many CD & DVD players this way. If that doesn't work, take a can of compressed air and blow out dust from inside the laser by pointing the nozzle to the open space between the lens and the lens cover. Hold the can at least three inches away so as not to damage the internal workings of the laser assembly. Several short/sharp bursts of air might dislodge dust that has accumulated inside the laser housing.

the play head of your device known as the ''lens'' is either dirty or bad thats why its selecting disc,try clean it with lens cleaner,if it still does the same thing call your technician,and tell him to change the lens for you.if he does the right thing ,it will work perfectly well.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
