Question about Toshiba SD-V392 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs


While showing "reading disc" on the TV screen, the player stops loading the disc and give an "err" on the DVD display or "no signal" display on the TV.

If I can get a disc to even go into the tray, it sluggishly goes back into the machine.

Just suddenly started doing this 24 hours ago.

Machine is 3 years old.

    I recently have experienced the same problem. When I try to play a movie, it says "Invalid Disc" and then ERR displays. While I have owned this player for approx 2 years, I have not had this problem in the past.

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

Disc read err


Looks to me you can put in a variety of disks, But to make sure it is not just a disk that was in the sun or so, try it with a bought DVD. If that still giving problems, you could try to clean the laser, with a special cleaning CD / DVD.
Special if someone smokes in the car.

DVD player issues


Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.

Dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind


jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.
