    Mine will not turn on either. Friend of mine had it for 2 years now its dead. I cannot even figure out how this thing comes apart. No help on any websites. Is this player just garbage? And its not the outlet, that is the lamest suggested solution I can think of.

    I have had this system for almost a week and it was working great...until today. It stopped turning on when I decided to finish hooking it up by connecting the radio antenna. It just stopped working. I have tried to plug it in to other outlets; I have unplugged the ac cord from the unit and plugged it back in; I have tested the outlets to make sure they worked (and they did). Nothing works. I would love to know what the problem is. I did not do anything to damage the unit...I did not even move it.

    I turned my system on this morning heard a faint pop, like a fuse blowing, and now it won't turn on. I have it plugged into a surge protector that is powering my tv and dish dvr and they both work fine.

    I woke up this morning to return a netflix DVD and the DVD player will not turn on...I unplugged it and replugged still no change. I used the remote still no change. I could see the LED light slightly dim when I hit the power button from the remote...but even pressing the button on the player it just will not turn on.

    I just purchased a philips hts3544 and when I plug it up the standby light blinks one time and will not turn on. There is some power getting to the system, because the fan in the back turns on. Not sure what to do.

Not sure but since you did not indicate wether this wall plug you are using is the same one you are plugging into when placeing on a stand.
I would say that if it is not the same one it would appear to be the only variable common.
Have someone check that outlet it might be wired wrong (if you don't have a tester ) ----(you can buy a line tester at home depot ,it plugs in to wall and has lights that display how plug is wired) -- I am thinking either you have no ground or polarity is backwards. If you have a VOM measure Nuetral to Ground it should be less than 5 VAC, higher than this is a problem.
Since most amps use low voltage switches internally any variation to the ground will vary the switching voltage.

If you are using the same outlet then the above still applies since when you unplug the poor ground may be shorting internally as you remove.

I would inspect the outlet you are using.

The blue-ray movies will not play,,, dvds play fine i have sharp BD-HP21OU,,, I went to your sight and down loaded the firm ware it play the disc onetime and after that no more my player is only 2 months...

This can happen that the movie will play once just fine and then have problems the next time. You have to go to the blu ray player's menu and down to system reset and complete the system reset before attempting to play the movie again. You can also hold down the power button on the front of the unit until it says reset. You will need to complete the one from the unit though to get the movie to play again. If that doesn't work you may need to send it in for repairs or return the unit.

DVD Player Only Produces Snow After Power Outage. Halp!

Sounds like your TV has lost the DVD channel. Turn off TV and make sure the DVD player is connected to TV and is playing a DVD. Now put you TV on and press the SOURCE or AV button on your TV remote until you can see the DVD channel. In older TVs you may need select channel and tune it manually using the TV setup.

Dvd player cannot be launched?

Thank you for your request.

There are a couple of possible solutions.If the first does not work, try the next, and ultimately you can call customer service for Toshiba or the company you bought the system from.

First I would try to restart the system.

Second uninstall and reinstall software.

Third Check drivers and other software relating to the dvd player, or disc drives.

Forth to call customer service, there could be more complicated software issues or hardware issues at this point.

DVD Player does not work

General Problems
Player won’t work (locks up)
• Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in.
• Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds
before you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the
factory default settings and also erases the contents of the Disc Library.

System Error

FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
