    AJ,
    Thank you for your response. I have opened the cover and cleaned all the visible parts. It seemed to help momentarily. However, I am not sure how to locate the lens in particular. Any guidance on what it may look like?

What you should do is to clean the OPTICAL LENS directly with a dry Q-tip , could be that it collected some dust and thats why its playing erratically, give it a try , AJ

Need codes for he universal remote to program to Toshiba DVD player SD-1800


Use the code search provision of your universal remote to seek a suitable code. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

My dvd player stopped loading dvds. It will say "loading" for a while before it just says "disc error". It's definitely not a problem with the dvds though, I've tried a few and they all...


This is a Laser Pickup Assembly issue, the pladder motor that the dvd sits on is not working and has become defective, the only solution is replaced the machine for a new one, not cost effective for repair.
