Random play for all cds in player

I'm having trouble getting the random to play all 5 cd's randomly.  It will play 2 of the discs at random, but ignores the other 3.  They are all store bought disc, no home made stuff.  I push CD Mode on, then play mode until I see RANDOM on the screen, then hit PLAY.  And they go back and forth between two cds, not the rest.  HELP!  Thanks

Re: Random play for all cds in player

You might have to push each Cd button first so that it initiallizs all 5 disks and then press random

How do I get the discs to play continuously? Only plays one at a time. Use to play 1-5 without advancing them manually.

There is an option for this in the menu. You can select how you want it to play (ex. random, all, single song, 1 disc...etc)

I can't find my remote and I want my cd's to play over and over. I don't care about the order. I just don't want to have to get up and push play after each cd is finished playing. What can...

Not much you can do without a remote for this model except play 1 disc (CD or DVD) manually at a time. You could try to obtain a replacement of the original remote directly from Panasonic, or you can look again for your lost one in your home, or you can try a (cheaper) universal remote with this unit. The cost depends on what type of remote you get and where you buy it from (if you order through Panasonic there may be an additional shipping charge). Sequential play (one disc after the other automatically) usually can only be set using the remote.

The fact is, this player needs a remote for full functionality If you want random/sequential play for multi discs, the original Panasonic remote is required - try ordering this first if it is available. If not, then consider a universal. (you could also look on eBay for a similar DVD player remote for this model)

I can't seem to get the menu button to display any menu. I only use the player for CD/s in a church sound system (connected to a Kenwood Audio Video Reveiver). Also, I can't get the disc player to play...

You will need to the remote to perform these functions. if you have it that's great, if not you willneed to contac Toshiba for a replacement. I ahve a manual for you to print out and keep with the unit. It shows you how to access the menu and to activate random mode..

Freezes in the middle of playing a dvd

1. You say in the (middle?) That in itself is subjective, Does it stop at an 'exact' specific point after playing for x number of minutes? Is it the same point for any DVD being played, or does it stop at a random point? - Does it stop when playing DVD--R or +R or what type of Disc? - more details helps to find a solution.
Also it is never necessary to use cleaning discs - Do that and it will wreck your player - and may never read a disc again. Using cleaning discs could have caused your problem. Use cleaning discs only for practicing how far you can throw them.

As a CD player - shuffle/random?

The point of buying a 5 disc CD/DVD player is that you can let the machine play randomly through all 5 CD . Where is that button ?

Hp dvd player

This problem can often be caused by the DVD player software thinking it is in a region different than your discs. (DVD discs are often encoded with 'region codes' meaning a disc purchased in Asia will not work in a player expecting to see North American discs)

What can happen is the player 'forgets' where it is, and your regioned discs won't play any longer (region free discs should continue to work as will audio CDs ....)

A power surge, random cosmic ray or similar flakiness can cause a player to 'forget' what region it was designed for ....

If that is what has happened you need to 'reset' the region code.

Altho I can diagnose this, I have NO CLUE as to how to do this with a hp DVD player. Anyone out there know how to reset the region codes for this (or generically for a DVD player?)

Thanks!! //cheapz

Dvd player frequently pauses or freezes while trying to play audio cd's

You tried cleaning the lens right?  That's the first thing I would do. You may have to actually open up the unit and use some windex on a cotton swap to clean the lens. Be very careful not to overwet the cotton swab. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens.

The red wavelength of light from the laser might not be getting through the lens properly, which is used for the Audio CDs, where the higher frequency laser is used for the DVD material.

Random no audio

I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.
