If the disc isn't spinning, and you have cleaned the lens (using a proper method) then it is likely that the laser has failed. The disc usually won't spin until the laser has sent/recieved a pulse from the surface of the disc. A new laser is usually about the cost of a new player.

Does this dvd player play 720p or is 480p the best I'm going to get?

Hi there, as far as your dvd player it will not up convert as suggested with SD stands for standard deffinition,. However some tv's will up convert slightly. Also note that Svideo is a little bit cleaner and crisper of a picture. still the HDMI is the highest deffinition yet. I hope this helps, another note though,. If there is the the green, blue, yellow cables, not the red white yellow, those are a little crisper yet.

Toshiba SD-K625 5 disk player won't play DVD but will play CD

Could be that the laser mechanism has lost its ability to focus properly on the dvd disks. U might want to try a firmware upgrade just in case the player has corrupted software. If not effective, then it is time to go shopping since a repair is not cost effective.

The remote control on our Toshiba SD-690KA player has stopped working. Replace batteries... still not working.

Took the batteries out... pressed each button on the remote individually... put batteries back in. It works fine now.

Toshiba SD-K860 DVD Player wont load DVD's

Having the same problem. DVD player loads enough to identify it is a DVD or a CD, but won't actually start playing anything.

Hi Koji, My Toshiba DVD player does the same. It stops playing the disc, and the icon for incorrect disc displays. Often I cannot even start a movie. I keep getting BAD on the readout display also. I try hitting the player, or the stand in which the player is sitting, and sometimes it goes away and the movie plays. I will never buy Toshiba again.
