Question about Toshiba SD-3980 DVD Player
Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players To ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to maintain the integrity and quality of our products, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. is issuing an important product update. This is not a safety issue.
Toshiba is committed to customer service and to continuously improving the quality of its products. It has come to our attention that certain DVD players bearing the model numbers SD-3980 and SD-K750 may at some point in their life stop playing discs due to a component part failure. In such case, the error message "bad" will be shown on the unit's display. Affected units will have "SU2" at the end of the model name (e.g., SD-3980-SU2), which can be found on the back of the unit.
If you own either of these models and experience the issue described above, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at 1-800-631-3811 for information on how to obtain a replacement unit.

The internal fuse is blown.
It may be a replaceble glass cartridge fuse, or a fuse soldered to the power board.
Unplug, remove top cover, check and replace fuse. Radio Shack has reasonable coverage of fuses.
But - fuses usually blow for a reason. It could have been a power surge; it could be an internal failure. If the new fuse blows, it needs professional replair. Many of these are so cheap to make that it doesn't pay to repair them - replace it if the repair estimate is over 1/2 the replacement cost.
