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!!!

Toshiba 37 inch flat screen 37AV502U keep turning itself on then off randomly. Any ideas what it could be?


Fault to the main power supply regulator section. 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.

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.

2 dvds in built-in player


I have come across this a few times, one in fact last week!! The back needs to be removed from the back and the dvd section removed, Dont be afraid this is quite easy to do. lie the tv down face first and remove the stand and all screws, then remove the DVD section, should be 5 x screws and some leads that just clip off.
Then you will need a small screwdriver or a knife to prize the second dvd out, this may scratch your dvd but its better than your dvd player being broke!
Once out place the dvd player back in the set then re-screw it plug the leads back in and turn the set on and try to eject the first dvd, this should now be ok.
Once done, turn the tv off and replace the back on.
Just take your time and Obviously make sure the tv is not plugged in when removing the DVD.
Hope this helps
