Toshiba SD-4000KU DVD player - Won't recognize any discs.

Toshiba SD-4000 DVD player. 4 years old. Has been working fine, regularly cleaned, suddenly won't recognize any disc placed in it. Used remote to reset to factory defaults, still doesn't work. When placing a DVD into the tray, it closes, sounds like it's trying to spin up, but I only hear 3 very short sounds before it reads ''No Disc''. Even the cleaner disc won't spin up.

Every DVD I put in to the SD-4000, has a 'no disc' sign come up and won't play. is it forever broken?


Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

Sound no picture with dvd player


Exchanged AmEx Rewards points for 3 Toshiba Model DS-4000KU DVD players in 2007. All stopped working. Two a year ago, one this week. Errors - can't read disc, bad disc, etc.

Warranty period is up. So I decided to open one up tonight since they were going in the garbage anyway.

Put on rubber gloves and took off the case. Unscrewed the player unit, lifted it carefully, and untaped lines from the botton of the unit.

Plugged the unit in and powered it on. Did not blow up! :>)

Jiggled some of the lines and connections. Put a disc in and it read it!

Attached it to the tv without putting the case back on. Received video. Yay! But no sound. Boo!

Jiggled the lines some more and tried it again. Working fine now.

Will put the case back on later and see if it still works.

Good luck!

Just wondering whether damp has affected the circuit boards.
Try putting it in a warm room plug it in and leave for 2 hours then try again.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs


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.
