After some 6 months of low-normal use, it suddenly stopped reading my cds, i tried a cd lens cleaner but didnt even recognize it, tried the dvd lens cleaner... worked fine but did not solve my problem... My dad's same toshiba also stopped reading cds.
Do i try to flush it down my toilet or use it for target practice once it goes dead on dvds too???

most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.
how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).
The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load all Cd's/movies.The weak lens is what is making the player select discs, that is, not playing all discs.
a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does
the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you
would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.
By so doing your player would play all Cd's/movies with no problem at all.
Possible dirty cd laser lens. The CD & DVD lens are different so one may work and not the other. First step would be to try cleaning with a good quality lens cleaner. If it still does not work then it would be cheaper to replace the drive than to try and have the old one repaired. Hope this helps.
Hi there, this lens may be dirty or it may have a thin layer of heat film that is causing it to not read in a consistent manner. i would try to clean the lens with a good CD lens cleaner. if the cleansingdoesn't restore the lens to its original reading state, this will confirm lens assembly failure and you will need to replace this assembly.
run the lens cleaner through a couple times if that doesnt work then your lazer eye could be bad send out for repair or ebay a new one and sell that one on ebay there are some people who will buy it broken cause they can fix it cheap and sell it good luck...
This is usually caused by dirty drive lens, too scratched CDs or CD burnt at faster speed than your ROM can read. (I am assuming that your pc detect the CD drive and has no hardware conflict with it).
Try reading an unscratched prerecorded (original CD), if it does not read this as well then your lens are dirty, try using a CD lens cleaner if these dont work then you need to open your ROM and use a highly volatile organic lens cleaner chemical.
Try a lens cleaner cd, as when the lens gets misaligned or if it's quite old, it will find it harder to read a DVD as the tracks are much closer together than that of a VCD as they are cd's and their tracks are wider apart and easier to read.
