Hello trt38,

On the front panel of the DVD-RW, you should see a small hole, either above or below the tray. Take a paper clip and open it out. This should just about fit into the hole. Push the clip tip into the hole as far as it will go and keep poking around. This will actuate the manual release lever for the tray and the tray should pop out.
S-L-O-W-L-Y pull the tray out and take out your DVD. Restart the computer and the tray should go in automatically.

Hope this helps! You should be able to buy spares directly from the manufacturer or a local computer store. You could even try a google search to find a store near you, or you can purchase the parts online.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C655. The screen is malfunctioning as you can see. The screen has 3 vertical striped lines which has divided the screen into separate parts. The cursor will not pass through


Did you damage your screen (i.e. step on it, wet it, ect.)? If you did then you might have to take it in for repair. Regardless, you might just need to call a troubleshooting or help line/number, for that particular brand ( i.e. dell, toshiba,ect.)

Sdv395 will not open


Hello
There are two possibilities for this fault. The first one is of its loading belt. If loading belt, that fastened to loading gear wheel to loading motor get loose or broken, the tray won't come out or go inside. Just place your ear very near to the player, and push eject button and listen, whether there is a motor running sound for at least 3 seconds. If you hear this sound, make sure that the belt is brokenn. The second chance is with loading motor itself. If it do not get proper voltage or got dmaged, the fault you describe here will occur. To replace this motor, you have to disassemble the CD mechanism. You must have all the tools to do the work and experience to disassemble and reassemble the CD mechanism. The motor is not a costly part, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. OK.

I have 2 Toshiba HD DvD players which do not work. Do you know any place which will atempt to repair them? Thanks Don sawtell


those are both discontinued formats and getting parts will be very difficult

HD DVD was shut down as a format once bluray won the war (kind of like VHS and BETAmax back in the day)

try opening units and cleaning the optic on the player VERY GENTLY with Qtip and rubbing alcohol and this might help

good luck

Many DVD players have been going out lately. I suggest shaking it just a little to make sure of any lose parts if not then it might be the CPU inside the player is going bad or is fried. also try to open the thing,if you have been closing it with your hand that might caused a malfunction in the system. The operating lifts in the player go out real bad if opened with the hand. If it keeps on failing on you, buy a player with eject on the remote or that is a good brand like toshiba and sony. I hope I solved your problem. Good Luck

toshiba terca m1 can the teac dw-224e-36 drive be replaced with a dvd burner drive? thanks, brent hindsbwh@yahoo.com 732-754-3371 The problem with replacing the original CD drive in these notebook computers appears to be a serious "large-scale" problem. When you replace the CD drive with another Manufacturer and/or Model the Recovery CD and associated software can't find the exact drive ID its looking for. It then refuses to proceed with the software reload to bring itself online and function properly. This is called "forcing the customer to come to the original manufacturer only" policy and paying whatever they demand to get a replacement that will work properly with all the original system CD's. I'm sure the Boot EPROM has the DW-224E-36 ID burnt into it to ensure it doesn't load alternate drivers. We all hate to pay $150 - $190 for a drive we know cost approximately $20 - $30 to make. When you make 5,000 to 15,000 of anything every week, the actual manufacturing cost gets incredibly low. I've been chasing an answer to this problem for a Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 system needing a functional DW-224E-36 DVD ROM CD R/W drive because it won't read the Recovery DVD to load the software onto a new HardDrive. The Notebook is literally "like new" but the HardDrive and CDROM drive are disfunctional due to overheating. The cooling airway pathway was totally blocked with "lint" and the owner never thought to have a professional look at the system. I wish us all "good luck" finding a seller that is satisfied making a "reasonable profit". All I've thus far been able to find are sellers wanting to triple, quadruple or 6X their money on anyone that relies solely on a notebook computer. Toshiba wants $188 for a replacement. Then add state tax and shipping to pay over $200. This is outrageous for this product and the PC owner will probably have to throw the unit away as she can't afford it. $100 for a new hard drive, $200 for a new CD drive, $100 for a new battery and $100 for 1GB of new RAM (remove 2ea-256MB small DIMM's and replace with 2ea 512MB small DIMM's). This doesn't have any labor included with the costs. I'm doing the repair as a friend to the owner's family. $400 is minimum to cover the "need", the extra RAM is a "want". The real loser's are the PC owner and the world we live in because we have another 10-14 lbs of "electronic & plastic scrap" to bury in a hole somehere and she has to figure out how to fulfill her computer needs affordably. Goood Luck to all. JRCjr 12-28-08 (I would appreciate whomever owns this website to not make my email address viewable by the general public). Should someone have a better answer I am open to suggestions. astute.solutions@net-star.net
