Toshiba MW20FM1 DVD section quits

The DVD player quits at random intervals-powers itself down.No indication on screen,though TV stays on-just black.Disc will not eject.Cycle power on set,disc plays again-usually for no more than a few minutes.I am a tech.Have checked the power supply for the DVD-it is being shut down.The main power light stays on.All other TV/VCR functions are OK.

    I took the DVD chassis apart completely to get a P/N and looked for bad solder joints,etc.Found none,but after I reinstalled the board (and applying a no-residue cleaner to all connectors) the DVD played fine! have not had a call back from the owner-though she knows that an aftermarket player can be used with the TV's external input jacks if needed.

    I acquired an MW20fm1 for use during a hospital stay but there are no remotes that work with it and the DVD is useless.
    The picture is better than any I have seen and want to keep it around the house for a spare but alas, what to do?

    My DVD portion on this set was totally dead. The VHS and TV worked fine. I too, removed the DVD section on this set, scrubbed the board with alcohol and a toothbrush, put it all back together, and BOOM!! Fixed!!!

Works with most Sony Players

Step 1
Unplug the power cord of the Sony Blu-ray player. Plug the power cord back in. Turn on the Sony Blu-ray player. Turn on the TV to which the Sony Blu-ray player is attached. Wait for the "No Disc" text to appear on the front of the Sony's LCD display and on the TV's screen.

Step 2
Press the "Eject" button on the remote control. Wait for the disc tray to eject itself from the front of the Sony Blu-ray player.

Step 3
Press the "Disc Info" button on the remote control. Look for a number to appear on one of the upper corners of the screen of the TV.

Step 4
Press the "Disc Info" button repeatedly until the number "9" appears on the TV's screen. This number indicates that the Sony Blu-ray player is now set for "multi-region" and will play any Blu-ray disc that is commercially made.

Step 5
Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player back on using the remote control. Press the "Eject" button on the remote control to close the disc tray. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control.

I have 2 problems with my lg hb 966trw: a)


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


No power
  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
  2. Check if the main power has been switched on.
    (DVD player's power supply transformer could be burned out)
Screen is "frozen" or completely black, or Power button does not work
  1. Try turning the power off and wait 3 seconds before turning it on again.
  2. Make sure the TV and VCR (if connected) are set to the correct channel or line.
Does not play disc
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
No sound
  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.
switching regions:
    • 1
Turn on your DVD player.
    • 2
Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.
    • 3
Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.
    • 4
Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.
    • 5
Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

One of your power wires is loose. There should be two of them. One is constantly connected to +12 volts and one is connected to the accessory on your ignition system. If your clock resets after you hit the bump, it is your constant power that is loose. If your clock stays with the correct time, your accessory wire is loose.

The DVD player is in constant eject mode - discs will not stay in to play. It has worked perfectly for years. Tonight I was watching a disc, finished, ejected it and put in another and the player just...


Two possible scenarios: First the optical pick up assembly that read the disc has malfunctioned or the eject button is faulty. Either way it is just cheaper to replace the DVD player with a standalone dvd player connected to one the tv input(s). Too expensive to repair just the dvd player if it is tv/dvd combo. The cost for labor and parts is more expensive these days to repair tvs or dvd player. For around $30 you can just replace...much more cost effective.

32 inch tv/dvd combo cuts off on its own


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
https://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.//

ok
Look at the door of your DVD shutter. There might be very small hole. This is an emergency Shutter open point. Make off your player, insert a long pin inside the hole, press it gently, you will notice that the shutter is openning, pull it out side, and take off your data DVD from the tray.
