    CDs in the Toshiba SD4990 wont load. DVDs do, but not CDs or CD-Rs.

    I've tried to clean the disk using Scotch DVD/CD Laser Lens Cleaner Disk and even that wont load.

    I have opened the top and the dvd is not spinning. It just sits there with the Load light flashing.

    When I put a dvd into the player, it just keeps flashing loading and nothing happens. I've had the machine for over a year and this just started today.

There are 2 reasons, your cd rom lens might be dirty and needs to be cleaned, you may use the lens cleaner cd. and your cd you are loading might not be supported by your cd rom, a different code could also one reason.

Screen says loading.Then says (no disc)


There are a lot of reasons why that could happen. Sometimes when a DVD player needs to be cleaned it won't read a disk.Sometimes when you try to play a NTSC disk on a PAL DVD player or visa versa it won't play. Region coding could be another issue. And sometime home burned DVDs won't play in certain players.

Dvd keeps saying loading but won't play


Sounds very much like you have a either a dirty laser, or a laser unit failure. Put a cleaning disc through the machine, and see if it improves. If not, then you need to either have a new laser fitted, or a new machine.

Player won't load any discs


I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

DVD tray will not open


I had the same problem - unplug first- it is easy to undo all 6 small screws - open it up -plug in and then you can give it a little help to open it. It worked for me, BUT now it will open and close but not play the dvd.

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem


Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
