Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
Remove your disc from the drive.
Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.
During start up does it give you any options to start it normally? Try hitting F8 during start up to see if your able to get it to boot normally. Not sure what "pach" you are talking about. BIOS shouldn't be the problem. Sounds like you have a virus of some sort.
Starting with Windows Vista there is a big leap in doing a system
restore or recovery. Windows 7 also has the same options. In case your
system is not displaying any GUI or there is crash more often , just
Press F8 when your computer starts.
Choose System Recovery which should be the first option
You will be prompted for user name password which should be an administrator account.
Next you will get 5 ways of making a restore : Startup repair, System Restore, Windows complete pc restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and Command prompt
System Recovery tools in Windows Vista and Windows 7 Out
of the 5 options, Windows Complete PC restore is used when you have
backup of your pc or at least of the drive where you had installed
windows. Command prompt recovery mode is only for advanced users and
Memory Diagnostic tool is only used when windows gives notification to
you and asks you to run it. Else it is not required to run it.
You can try upgrading the BIOS: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=713738&rpn=PSA60U&modelFilter=A60-S166&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=713738|PSA60U
I don't know that's going to do it for you.
This software will allow you to backup and restore the BIOS, just in case, as well as give you another tool to try cloning the drive itself: http://ping.windowsdream.com/
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: http://problemstosolve.com/solved/toshiba-sd-k850-wont-eject-solved/
