    I had the same problem. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the whole unit came back to life once I had removed the two discs that were stuck inside. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi,

For a Toshiba SDK740SU, to remove a stuck disc:
1. Remove the top and front cabinet cover;
2. once exposed, slide/move the Rack Loading (white) towards the right with a sturdy instrument such as a common screwdriver;
3. draw the tray out
Please refer to image below:
DVD PLAYER MODEL, SD-K740SU - fd91076.jpg
The only possible easy user workable reset is to unplug the unit for quite some time.

Should the above be not corrective, pls post back whether you have the 740SU or the 740SUA version.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

No picture on dvd player but can hear sound


Usually this is a bad inverter. The best way to check this is to hold the unit up to a very bright light and see if there is a ghost of am image visible and moving, just not bright enough to be seen properly. This means that the display is working, but the flourescent display behind it is not being powered properly, and most LCD displays require a little inverter board to convert the native DC power to AC to light the backlight. inverter boards are cheap if you can find the proper one for your unit. Unfortunately some units have the inverter board integrated into the motherboard of the player, though that is rare. It should be a separate (and thus replacable) component. Good luck!

DVD player lost charging power/only works with adapter plugged in


If you had the player for quite some time it could be the battery. The batteries eventually get weaker and weaker and go. Like laptop. Did you notice less usage time after you charged it when it worked?If it isnt that old it could be an internal problem you may have to get checked out by manufacturer, also check if its still under warranty.

SD-K530SU - Turning Off Progressive Scan Mode


Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again and hold it
for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will
be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once
again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Picture keeps trying to black out


Hi I have seen this problem before, and it was the video processor. I have seen the picture fade to black, then come back, and also fade to green. The cost to repair is prohibitive unless you could find a shop that perhaps has hung on to a unit that was hit by lightning, and only has a blown power supply. The only ray of sunshine I could offer, is if you recently connected your unit to a vcr, because the effect you describe is also what appears when you try to play a dvd that is copy guarded. If your DVD player is connected to a vcr then to the television, take the VCR out of the loop, connect straight to t.v. and all will be well. Goog Luck!
