    Dan...thanks, I kinda figured it was possibly dust....no I don't feel comfortable since the DVD player is at the bottom of the TV... so what cover are you referring to ??? Does the front of the DVD player come off ??? Could you explain in detail....

    Would appreciate any help since we don't know where to take it to get it checked out and what it would cost....

    Thanks again.... Sandi

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.

My toshiba tv/vcr/dvd combo wont play dvd's anymore. Is this worth getting fixed? Is there a warrenty for the dvd ? Or should I just buy a new tv and dvd ?


No. Usually it will cost you more money than gettting it fixed. If I make a suggestion. I would get a stand alone dvd, because if the dvd goes out in the television then the tv may not work.

Cant Power up/down. DVD player wont work


You can try leaving the television unpluged for a couple of days and see if letting the circuits completely discharge will let the television reset itself to normal operation. You can also call Toshiba customer support and ask them if this problem is common and if there is a simple solution. The customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Give them the model number of your television and they will help you. I hope this information help you with your problem.

20 INCH TOSHIBA DVD VCR COMBO, DVD KEEPS READING BUT NEVER DOES


I was having the same issue and I've been to several video stores to rent DVDs and 2 out of 3 rentals have the same affect where it is just 'reading' but even worse, it would play fine and then freeze up during the movie- very frustrating. Now, after 3 years of owning it, it died today. They just don't make them the way they used to :(
