My toshiba bdx2100 blu ray player has decided to stop playing any of my blu rays, old or new it doesn't matter

I put the blu ray into the player and it noisily whirs round and round and it usually gets spat back out at me saying unknown disc on the screen. I try it a few more times and it still doesn't work. Can someone please tell me why this is?

SOURCE: LG super blu player won't play blu ray disc

Have you updated the firmware on it? I had a similar problem with a Sony blu-ray player and I had to download an update and burn it on to a CD then allow the CD to update the blu-ray player. What's the model number of your player, I may be able to get a link to the update for you.

SOURCE: Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

SOURCE: My Blu-ray keeps saying no disc.

This can be caused by a number of different things, some simple ones are:

- Unplug for 5 minutes then replug, this will reset the processor and it may smarten up (just like rebooting a computer)

- Take the unit apart and using a Q-tip and lens cleaner gently clean off the lens of the laser...only do this is you feel comfortable. If there is a hair or obstruction on the lens it will not read discs. If it is still under warranty, send it in first before you take it apart, it may void warranty.

- If the above two do not work then the transport mechanism may be defective and the repair would be around 100 -150 dollars, which is probably not worth repairing and it is best to look at a replacement machine.

Hope this helps!

Won't play discs says unknown disk . Xod1750.


You will get this code when a DVD is not finalized. It needs to be put back into the machine that copied the disc and be finalized.

Everytime i put in a blu ray dvd it comes up unknown disc, if i put in a normal dvd it comes up saying no disc.


Nothing. the dvd deck needs to be replaced probably due to a bad optical pickup (laser). The cost of this would be more than buying a new unit.

Plays some won't play others firmware is up to


Please check in the manual provided which regions disc your Blue ray disc player can play. Check the same region code at the back cover of the Blue Disc you want to play. If it is same there is no problem in playing but if it is other than the one your player can play, it won't read or play. Try to get Discs which have all regions marked on them

Disc spins, then " Type of disc can not be played" message


it means the format of the type of cd u put in cannot be played by the system.

try playing the disc it on another player, if it does the same, it means the disc cannot be played. some players dont play mp3 format, blu ray, and some others, so you can check the kind of disc you want to play on it.

goodluck

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

It keeps saying unknown disc,every time i put a disc in there every disc that i put in the player...it will not play it...it keeps saying Unknown-disc...including an audio-disc.


hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

Unknown disc error and whirring sound!


Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.
