My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

Whenever i put a disk in my mxt dvd player it loads and just comes up with no cd.


You said disk. If you have tried different dvd movies then I would suspect a dirty or weak laser. If it plays dvd's ok but wont play certain cd's then I would suspect a compatability issue. You can try one of those laser cleaners at most dept stores or if you take it apart (with it unplugged) the laser is located where you put the disk in and it has a small plastic lens you can clean with a q-tip and alcohol. If that doesnt help the laser is probably bad, depending on the player it would probably be cheaper to purchase a new player.

Toshiba sd-4990 dvd player will not load a disk


Your toshiba is not spinning that's why it keeps on saying loading. Unplug the dvd Open the device,once open plugin the dvd and put the dvd cleaner in the player. take your finger on the top where the dvd disk is and spin the disk. What happening is that you are cleaning the len. keep spinning until it spin on its own.Put the toshiba top back on and clean again. It should clean on it's on. Now you can play your dvd. Clean your dvd on a regular basic.

DVD will not load/format new disk


I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.
