Question about Toshiba SD-5000
Bad spindle motor!

None of this helped. I suspect a failure in the power supply. With the cover off, I observed that the mechanism will **** and move the dvd slightly. The laser does not move at all. I used to like Toshiba products.

The unit i purchased ran great for about 2 months then the video started to freeze. power cycled solved the problem initially, but when power cycling did not cure the problem, i started shaking and tapping the unit. at a point of throwing the unit away - took the cover off to see what's inside. with the cover off, it ran just fine . put the cover back, ran ok for a while then started freezing video again.
twisting the unit appears to make it function..
my solution that appears to work for my unit. .
loosen only the two screws holding the plastic drive mechanism down to the bottom plate (chassis) assumption is that the metal chassis was twisting the drive mechanism and offsetting the photo pickup.
this has worked for the past 2 weeks without a problem.
