Re: DVD does not play just spins and keeps showing...

Check to see if the disk is dirty, has fingerprints or is scratched. This has happened to me in the past and if dirty, cleaning it will correct the problem.

Toshiba REGZA won't play DVD. Shows "disc loading" then goes to wide screen mode, but then ejects the disc. Whats up?

Sounds like the laser pickup unit to the DVD player is faulty. Contact any service technician to replace it. The disc mechanism should be taken out of it to replace this part.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Dvd players won't work

Check whether the disc spins inside. Open the cover and check it. It it do not spins, this kind of fault can occur. If so, the sled motor should be replaced. If you wish to get some details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name / model number / IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

The DVD player keeps opening and closing and won't play/load DVD's. What could be the problem?

There are sensors which tell the DVD drive that the drawer is closed and that there is a DVD inserted, if these fail there is usually no simple fix, the parts need to be replaced which requires complete dis-assesembly of the TV/DVD, Most people just choose to connect an external DVD as it is cheaper.

Toshoba tv/dvd combo. won't play many dvd's. makes clicking sound as it tries to load movie?

Dear Lesley!
It looks, like your DVD lens might get contaminated with dust and/or dirt, which is being picked up off DVDs. Let's try to load music CD, instead or DVD. If it loads well, I will suggest, that your DVD player is at fault and you must give up using it. External basic DVD players are quite inexpensive and easy to connect to your TV. But: if no CD, nor DVD load, the solution might be much simpler: use lens cleaner CD with brushes. good ones might even have a special fluid, which applied to brushes(alcohol based). Just load it into your TV's player and follow audible directions. After couple attempts, your lens should be clean enough to play DVDs. Please, don't try to use any "ear swabs", instead. The lengths is not long enough, plus it may damage load mechanism or get stuck inside. I've seen such a cases lately.
Good luck,
Thank you,

Dvd not loading

Its been my experience that a lot of times CD/DVD players won't read disk if they need to be cleaned if you get a little bit of dust on that little laser lens that's all it takes. You can buy cleaners. I usually take mine apart and clean them with a Qtip and windex. Sometimes you could even blow them out with compressed air.

Cant get cd to work keeps saying loading goes no

Since the details of your problem description is sparse, I presume you are trying to load a DVD - not a CD - to watch on your TV. If in fact you ARE trying to watch a CD on your TV - won't work! A CD can be viewed on your computer, but not the TV. They are not interchangeable.

If however you are trying to load a DVD, the disk may me dirty or damaged. Check that the back of the DVD is free from finger prints, marks, or deep scratches. If it is, you may be having some issues with your DVD player. I sometimes have a similar problem that can be resolved only by opening and closing the drawer of the player several times.

DVD player not working

It could be that the DVD player has a bad home switch in the dvd player or that it doesn't know that the door is closed. I have run into similar situations with CD Players years ago. Also keep in mind to unplug unit and let sit for 1 minute to let microprocessor reset. Let me know if that helps. Thank you ...Jay

Sounds like a common problem with this trutech brand. There are some possibilities. 1. Laser could be worn out, 2 it could be a bad cable coming from the laser. 3 The home switch for the laser to come all the way back to its "HOME" position could be bad. But usually if this is the case, the disc won't spin at all. And 4th, the spindle motor that spins the disc could be worn out. Causing the disc not to spin fast enough and thus causing an error. Let me know if you want to send me one of these anyone so as i can trouble shoot the problem further. Keep me posted and i hope this helps you out some. Thank you Jay
