Question about Toshiba SD-2800 DVD Player
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
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.

I have the same problem with my SD-2800 that Ruska has. Any suggestion how the unit can be fixed?
