This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.

Hello, you can go to the toshiba web site and download the manual from there.
The other option is to go into the TV menu, and select the timer rec set selection and access it there and fill in the times for the program you want to recording and that should do it.
I hope tihs helps.

You will need to clean the DVD /VCR . It has accumulated dust and dirt in the mechanism and cannot operate normally. This may be only a cleaning job and not a electronic repair. You will need to have the television opened to clean it. You should completely clean all the components in the combination unit. You will need to check and make sure all belts and gears are in good shape and working correctly. Check out the entire television and make sure everything looks good and ready for use. This will save you from having to open the unit again, later to repair and clean the components. This cleaning can be accomplished with compressed air and brushes to clean the circuit boards and mechanisms of all dust and debris. Use small amounts of isopropyl alcohol on cotton swabs to clean off stubborn dirt and dust. After cleaning let the television complete dry and then try using the VCR and see if it works. If it still has a problem and you are sure you have check it out completely you may need the help of a service center to figure out the problem. The Toshiba customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Call them and ask them where the nearest authorized service center is in your area. You can call them and ask them if they give you a estimate of the repair costs for your model television combination unit. You can then decide if it is cost efficient to have the unit repaired. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.
