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!!!

We have a 23" Toshiba with a internal DVD player.


No,tv internal DVD player are not on sale by itself as a seperate unit,only can buy it from the tv corporations themselves and it not cheap and have to have experience to putting it in into the tv internal tv itself.The tv internal DVD player now,could be the laser eye data reader have problems reading mp3 and mp4 files on the DVD disc,which are video files.Now tries to play more than one DVD movies dic,tries like to play like 5 to 6 original DVD movies.One disc don't play tries another DVD disc.Tries this might forcing the laser eye reader to read DVD dics again and than might fix it to read video files again.Or just buy an external DVD player hook it up to the tv and play DVD disc on to the tv video modes.DVD players external devices are really cheap these day,like can buy new one for $40.

Cant Power up/down. DVD player wont work


You can try leaving the television unpluged for a couple of days and see if letting the circuits completely discharge will let the television reset itself to normal operation. You can also call Toshiba customer support and ask them if this problem is common and if there is a simple solution. The customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Give them the model number of your television and they will help you. I hope this information help you with your problem.
