Question about Toshiba SD-V57HT System

1 Answer

Disc Read Error

A relative of mine has a Toshiba DVD/VCR Home Theater System SD-V57HT and though it's only about a year old, it's been giving her problems. Every time a disc is inserted, DVD or music disc, a message pops up on screen that says 'Disc read error' and then the disc tray opens back up. If anyone has had this happen before and knows what the solution is, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I wanna buy some speakers wires for this system i cant find them anywhere7067676412 if you have them

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

Register and download the manual for free at

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.

When I put a DVD in the player it gives a "no Disk" message.

I had the SAME problem, and all that was needed was for the laser lens to be cleaned. They have laser lens cleaning discs at Best Buy (that's where I got mine) and probably just about any electronics store that sells/repairs DVD players-- mine cost about $16. You pop it in, it spins and cleans the laser lens, and then your discs are able to be read properly. Hope it helps-- it worked for me!

Dvd stereo system SA-DK10 does not read cd's and dvd's

I took mine to Radio Shake and they replaced the mechanism for the reader. It was a total of 150.00 but it was worth it. I have to give it to them and they had to send it out to see what was wrong with it. I have used it two years later and it still works good. On occasion when I play about three to five dvds it will stop. After I let it cool down it starts working again. I am selling mine after 8 years of having it because my girl friend bought me a blue-ray theater system for christmas. Other then that it is a great product. if you need anything else let me know.
