DVD player - ERR

All of a sudden, no matter what disc is put in - The TV will show the Toshiba DVD welcome screen but there is a black box in the upper left hand area of the screen that says "Incorrect Disc"..
Even when the disc is a "store bought" - play anywhere - type of disc.
It will not even play the discs that were recorded and finalized on the unit.

The laser unit has gone bad. Usually it's not worth replacing as it is about 3/4 the cost of a new player.

It will take almost a minuted for the player to boot up and appear on screen, providing I am assuming you have your TV set to DVD setting.

Your DVD then when booted up will say "No Disc" if you dont have a DVD in it, course with one in it, your movie should appear.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

DVD player issues

Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.

Dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind

jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.
