Question about Toshiba SDV393 DVD Player/VCR
Many DVD players are not able to properly detect and playback
recordable DVDs. If trying to play a DVD disc that is a DVD-R/RW or
DVD+R/RW, you must check if the check is one of that kind.
Insert the disc and listen closely by placing your ear to close to the drawer of the DVD player. After the disc tray has closed, you should be able to hear the disc spinning. If you hear no such sound, it is common that the disc is not spinning up, which is why you would recieve a "No Disc" message when a disc has been inserted. In some cases, it can be difficult to hear the disc spinning, so you could remove the lid of the player to actually see if the disc spins.
After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
i dont think you can fix it by yourself.
There are other possibilities for the players failure, such as a defective laser motor (the motor that moves the laser), bad spindle motor (the motor that spins the disc), as will as other various circuit falures that could be the cause.
or try a few of this
*Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
*Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
most probably the spindle motor might be the case.
if nothing of this work,take it to an authorised techinician

This usually occurs with overtime dust build-up on the laser unit. You will need to get the laser unit cleaned at a service centre or local repair store. In most cases, cleaning the laser unit does fix this common problem.
