Hi...The only other thing you can do is:
UNPLUG from the AC..Take the top case off and see if there is any access to the laser lens..( very small "1/8th inch" clear plastic)
If you can , clean it( VERY lightly) with swab of 90% alcohol

Toshiba DVD SD73000KU will not recognize ANY disk


hi
have you been tried to clean the lazer lens with a cd lens cleaner. if doesn't work you can do with manual cleaning using a fiber cloth moist with alcohol damped gently the laser lens which may be dirty causing not to detect a disc. now if those tries still doesn't work your last option to make an adjustment on the speed settings of the drive motor. at the lower portion of the lens their is a trimmer adjustment, you can used a small flat head screw driver then try to adjust the trimmer just a little bit counter clock wise, make sure the player is unplugged for safety. then try to plugged it and turn on the player, insert now a cd and observed. if the motor doesn't rotating, removed then check if worn out, replaced a new one if needed.this will worked now.
hope this will helped thanks for consulting the fixya.

My cd and dvd player is not working. i have a toshiba laptop with windows vista. please advise. thank you.


If by not working you mean that the drive physically works fine, will eject and stays closed when you put a disk in, but does not read the disk or gives errors when it tries, then a simple cleaning could be enough to revive it. A lens cleaning cd is easy enough to find at any local department store and running this in the drive should take care of any problems reading disks unless the disks themselves are damaged.

If however you meant that the drive doesn't respond to eject requests, either when pressing the button, or choosing "eject" in windows, then the hardware itself is at fault and will need to be replaced. The drive is easy to swap out with a replacement or you could even get a portable external drive and only connect it when you actually need to use the disk. Also if the cleaning suggested above doesn't help, and you are sure the disks you are trying are not dirty or scratched to heavily on the bottom, then a replacement drive would also be in order.

PD5203 says no disc when disc is in the player


If this problem occurs only at this cd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this doesn?t solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Everytime put a game in it doesn,t read have tried cleaning disk but still doesn,t read disks


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.
