At the front panel of the dvd drive where u normally press the eject button look carefully u will find a very small hole some where in around the eject button. now look for a broom stick or any tiny but straight object that can go in through the hole. put the broom stick into the hole gradually not with force. the dvd player will eject if it doesnt eject then i dont know.
to replace a new dvd player u just unplug the formal one from yr system and insert the new one thats all. make sure no screws r holding the dvd player b4 u do so.
hope this helps
do come back n tell us if don
thank u

Was dropped and now no power light comes on can I fix it

It could be that the hard drive is probably loose and is no longer connected to the enclosure sata controller. You can open the enclosure to see if something came loose. If it did then reconnect the parts and try to power it up. Worse case, you will have to get another enclosure for the hard drive should the enclosure is no longer operable. This is to say there was no damage down to the hard drive. Make sure warranty has expired before voiding warranty by opening enclosure.

DVD/CD-RW-Device does not read any CD'Rs.

The drive must have "died".

If the computer is still under warranty, contact Toshiba, and get it repaired.

If the warranty has expired, take the computer to a qualified technician, who will remove the dead unit, install a new drive, and reassemble the computer.
Cost will be about $60 for "one-hour-labour", plus the cost of the new drive.

Says play dvd when entering games

This usually is caused by haveing a very dirty disk. Regular dusting probably won't solve it, get your hands on a disk cleaner, (Walmart usually carries them) also run a DVD drive cleaning disk through your console. If that doean't work your drive will probably need to be torn apart and cleaned.

**Make sure your warranty is expired before you open your console.

The drive door stays open on the dvd recorder drive after attempting to close it. the drive will not read the cds. it opens up without depressing the button.

try to read carefully the description of your dvd-r may only read dvd format and not cd. their are drive indecates to reads dvd-Rw and also cd-reader.

Return the TV to the store you bought it from. The store got it from Toshiba not you. Don't let them pass the buck. Keep all your receipts. Do it before the warranty expire.
