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.

SOURCE: won't open...

Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:

SOURCE: disc not reading. toshiba dr420 dvd recorder.

Multiple problems with the DVD recorder one of them could be the lasers not reading correctly its software is messed up or there something wrong with this but to me it sounds more like the DVD recorder has a problem I've experienced this problem before not with this particular type of DVD recorder I fix the problem by unplugging the DVD player for about 20 seconds to a minute to give it a good reset.
Quick tip: most high Tech Device problems or unknown errors can be fixed by simple restart or reset hope this helps

My Sylvania portable dvd keeps cuting on and off everytime I put a movie in but the movie never plays it just says loading and starts cutting on and off


Try putting an audio CD in, if it works fine thats a very good indicator that the laser is going/is bad. A audio CD has much less data to read so it's able to keep up, but not with the DVD.

I can't use my CD/DVD-ROM.. i try to put a disc on it, it appears D: is not accessible and the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. Please help me. i dont know what to do. thanks


Check you system hardware and see if it see the CD/DVD device. check to see if you have the drives and software loaded for that device. Go to toshiba web site and check for latest drives and patches. Some of there CD/DVD drives had upgrade software to make the DVD work right make sure you have everything you need loaded. Then put a blank CD in and try writing to it using there software package. if you can write and read a CD you just brunt then the CD is working. Next try reading a DVD movie see if it plays.

Plays CD but not DVD, says no disc


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Hard to get dvd player to work


How old is the set? As the player's laser ages it becomes harder for it to read discs. Audio CD's don't have as much data and are formatted differently from DVD's so they are easier to read. This is one possible cause. Hope this helps!

The part that reads the DVDs is defective. I would suggest to try cleaning it using a lens cleaner, hopefully that works.
If the cleaning does not work, it might just be cheaper to buy a new one instead of repairing this one.

Portable dvd doesnt play movies


Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.
