Re: Toshiba SD-2050 problem reading discs

If it reads only the first track, it sounds like a mechanical obstruction of the laser assembly (something is physically blocking it from travelling on its rails). If you are so inclined, try removing the deck lid andgently pushing the laser (in an area where there's nothing fragile) along its track to see if it frees up. It doesn't usually take much.

My dvd gaves me a bad disc

when you play nothing but bootlegs in a dvd player, they tend to burn out the eye inside the player to where it will only read bootlegs. the original movies capabilities won't work anymore. hope this is a help to you my friend.

Disc error


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.

Either your lens of the dvd player is dirty or the dvd's you put in have no data on them

I've had the same symptoms on the last two Sony DVD's that I've rented. I managed to get around this by hitting one of the menu buttons after the loading message stopped.
