Question about Toshiba SD-P1400 Portable DVD Player

Toshiba sd-p1400 dvd player not detecting discs

My Dvd player won't read discs, I tried running a cleaner disc to clean the lens, but it still won't read. I found out that if I open the disc lid and hold down on the disc lid button- such that the player thinks the lid is closed- I can watch as the reader tries to read the disc. When it tries to read, the disc doesn't hardly spin, but acts like it is trying to. I took my finger and spun the disc fairly fast and then held down on the disc lid button, and then I took off and spun the disc and read and played it. Is the motor bad or something? Thanks

When I open my Philips DVD player and put in disc it will not load and tells me NO DISC. Please help!


You might want to try using a DVD lens cleaner disc like the Philips CD/DVD Laser Lens Cleaner SVC2330 or SVC2520 or equivalent from many AV accessory vendors to help restore the cleanliness of the player read lens, so that its ability to read discs is restored. These discs have a tiny brush stuck onto the "playing" surface that polishes the lens, when the disc is played as normal. There is often an audio commentary to go with the cleaning.

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem



  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

if this remedy does not help and if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER Reader EYE...most of the time Laser Eye malfunctions and does this..
if it is not under warranty ,never ,never have someone repaired it..go buy a new one,It will be cheaper.. ...

Cannot read disc


Hello,

The reason your DVD player is not reading disc is because the lens is not reading the disc.

The reason the lens is not reading the disc is either because the lens is weak or dirty.

Try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner.
test it with a DVD, to see if it will work.

If it does not work, then the lens is weak and needs replacement.

to replace the lens,

open the player with the appropriate screwdriver, open the disc tray, and replace the lens with a new lens, test it with a DVD disc.

test it with a DVD disc.

take care

Disc error


Hello,

how long have you been using the player. There is every tendency that the lens (laser) of your player is weak and that's why it cannot read or play DVDs.

The lens (laser) is what makes the player reads discs, and if the lens is weak/dirty, there is no way it can read or play disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.
