Question about Toshiba SD-3980 DVD Player
Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players
To ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to maintain the integrity and quality of our products, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. is issuing an important product update. This is not a safety issue. Toshiba is committed to customer service and to continuously improving the quality of its products.
It has come to our attention that certain DVD players bearing the model numbers SD-3980 and SD-K750 may at some point in their life stop playing discs due to a component part failure. In such case, the error message "bad" will be shown on the unit's display. Affected units will have "SU2" at the end of the model name (e.g., SD-3980-SU2), which can be found on the back of the unit.
If you own either of these models and experience the issue described above, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at 1-800-631-3811 for information on how to obtain a replacement unit.

7 Other Users Have The Same Problem Posted by AbbeyW on Jan 25, 2009 Does it work to unplug the unit for 3 minutes (like the call center suggests)? Will the people at Toshiba follow through with repairing this "bad disc" message, which everyone has to face as an owner of the SD-3980 DVD player? Anyone had success yet?
