Question about Onkyo DV-S535 DVD Player
I have a Toshiba dvd/vcr home theater system model no:sd-v57htsu which reads no disc whenever I try to play a dvd. Anything I can do?
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.

Even if you can find them they'll probably cost a relative fortune.

Page 13 shows the wiring scheme.
The wire itself is just glorified lamp cord. Go down to Radio Shack or the hardware store and buy 100 feet of 18-gauge lamp cord and make your own - cheap.
Maybe bring the unit down to an electronic store and see if they have any compatible ends to match the proprietary outputs.
There are a couple whole non-working SD-V55's on eBay for under $60 delivered. If you check with the sellers to make sure the have the cables maybe you can work a deal.
From what I've seen asked for proprietary cable sets, these would be bargains.
