    Don't watch a lot of t.v., put in a movie for the 1st time in about a year1/2. Dvd player read loading for about 25 seconds & made a sound so loud, I looked for the disc to be chewed up when the loading stopped. TV read disc error. Since the machine hadn't been used in such a long time, I assumed it was dusty and sprayed the disc area with canned air. I put a brand new movie that had never been played & it started playing right away. I took it out & put in the movie of choice & it started the loading process all over again. I worked on the dvd player for over an hour & got no where! Help! Marty-Teddy Bear Beads!

You may already have given up on this model and bought a new one, however, I have (sort of) a solution to this problem. I have a Toshiba SD-2800 that, over the years, has had limited use and today, when I tried to use it, I received constant "Disk Error" messages on all media, blank and pre-recorded. On other boards I saw a reference to shock-absorber feet on the drive mechanism that collapse over time, causing the drive to bind up. I put in a disk and, as quickly as possible, turned the unit upside down. The disk played normally. In order to eject the disk, I had to turn the unit right side up or else the platter would open and the disk would remain inside the unit.

Clumsy? Yes, however, it worked. I plan to open the case tomorrow and see if there is some way to prop up the drive mechanism to avoid the flip action. Doubt I can get new parts on a unit this old.

Loading a new windows operating system but the computer is locked by a password

It could be that the BIOS is set to boot straight from the HDD. You can either go into the BIOS and change the setting or you could press 'F8' in the early stages of boot up and the computer should give you the option to boot from DVD. Make sure that the CD/DVD drive can read the disc as if the drive is a CD drive it woun'd read a DVD disc, if it's a DVD drive you're OK.

Player will not read cd . Cd will not spin

Without me seeing it, it usually cannot read the disc and is caused by a defective, or needs to be adjusted or cleaned, laser assembly as long as it is every cd put in it. It can also be the disc spinner motor. Either one of those is the most likely cause. :)

Audiovox D1998 portable DVD player will no long read disc.

This of course may not be the exact same thing, but mine did the same thing. Sounding like it was loading, but in fact pressing the open button it I could see the disc not spining at all (normally you would.) With the power off of course. I took all the bottom screws out (where ever the arrow points to a screw) including to the display. There is one ribbon cable easily disconnected. I lifted the mount the DVD sits on and reseated it. I put a disc in it, turned on the power and the disc turned. Great I thought. I reconnect the cable, put the screws back in - and its working.

At loadup.

check your disc's that it's not putting a mark on them...

sounds like the laser is hitting the disk trying to get it to focus,
thus it's either the spindal is to low or not moving or the laser is week or not in the correct position

Does not recognise disc

Try to change the laser unitKSS-240A (opticals). In most cases problem solved. The "zik-zik" sound is made by the motors in the unit as the laser tries to read the CD.
Caution, after installing the new laserunit remove the short circuits on the laserunit itself. This it put there just to protect the laser from static energie faulure during repair.
