Question about Toshiba SD-2800 DVD Player

Loud clunking when loading & playing....

My Toshiba SD-2800 player experiences a loud clunking when loading & playing discs. The disk will play, but the background noise drowns out some sound & I'm concerned that something will damage the discs. The noise is worst when it checks for a disc & it's empty. Since the player was manufactured on Feb. 2002, should I just buy a new one or have it serviced?

    I am having the same problem butmy cd's are skipping also and sometimes about half way thru just no sounds at all. I have not used it for a DVD lately but would guess it would do the same. Wouldn't think it would be worth fixing as they are so cheap now. I have seldom even used this one. Maybe 50 times since 03. Use this one mainly for CD's and have it hooked to seperate speakers but everything else hooked to that works fine so it is the Toshiba.

Same problem. Took mine apart, and it appears that shaft of the motor that spins the CD/DVD has gotten wobbly - probably due to a worn bearing. This would explain

Not worth fixing - even if you could find a replacement motor. DVD players are so cheap and feature-rich now, that it would not be worth the time and money to replace just the motor.

I would not continue to use the player in this condition. I noticed some white dust around the rim of the tray when it is open - that tells me that the DVD is scraping on the tray. There is a serious risk of damaging your media. And considering that you can get a brand-new DVD player for the price of 2-3 DVDs...

Dvd in player but display says no disk


Check the regional code of the DVD you want to play. It is at the back of the DVD cover. It should be compatible with the regional code which your DVD player can play. If they are not tallying the disc will not be read

Make sure you are using the right disk IE, DVD-R or DVD+R. Most Newer DVD player's will play DVD-R but very few play DVD+R

Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players spacer.gif To ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to maintain the integrity and quality of our products, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. is issuing an important product update. This is not a safety issue.

I've had the same symptoms on the last two Sony DVD's that I've rented. I managed to get around this by hitting one of the menu buttons after the loading message stopped.

Cd's are ok but no dvd's...


Had similar problem. Found the disk was not rotating. Adjusted the torque on the hold down screws of the drive unit allowed the disk to spin. Still had some motor noise, but DVD would load.

If the disk is not dirty, smudged up or scratched -- it is likely the laser pickup getting weak or the spindle motor not keeping at the right speed. If you have to clean the disc, wipe from the center out with a clean soft cloth.
