sounds as though you may have a slider problem or something is blocking it. The slider is what holds the laser assy as it slides along it like a rail while the motor drives the slider by a gear shaft system or a belt system.. I've seen in the past the grease or lubercation on this slider can harden up and ive also seen something getting inside like paper or little army men who wanted to hide out and was assisted there by a wee one. although these are common, another problem is that the tracking curcuit could also have a fault like alighnment or defective part now that would also include the tracking or slider motor too. Good luck

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.

If it reads only the first track, it sounds like a mechanical obstruction of the laser assembly (something is physically blocking it from travelling on its rails). If you are so inclined, try removing the deck lid andgently pushing the laser (in an area where there's nothing fragile) along its track to see if it frees up. It doesn't usually take much.

Most DVDs can only play DVDs from a single region. However, they sometimes allow you to change the region at least one time. Another option is to make your DVD player region free. This is a hack that can be performed. Once you do this, you can play DVDs from any region.

Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:
