SOURCE: Toshiba TV Combo MW24FP1, DVD player doesn't work on some discs

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.

What does "incorrect disc" mean


It could be one of several things:
  • Dirty disc. Clean with outward strokes with a paper towel and water or Windex if needed
  • Dead DVD player
  • DVD may be for a region that your player does not support.
  • If the DVD is burned (home made), sometimes players are not forgiving and not all will play burned discs.

The dvd player says "incorrect


The DVD player is region locked and will only play DVDs from a particular region. The cheap DVDs are probably region 0 and so will work on any DVD player. You can scour the internet for a code hack to change the region (I've had a quick look and not found anything).

I have a Toshiba DVR620ku DVD/VCR combo. I have the Format Mode properly set to "Video mode." I put in a new, unformatted DVD-R, and the player should format the DVD, but it doesn't. I click...


My brother had the same problem. Toshiba tech support said the disc was already formatted, so the DVD MENU option would not be available. He went straight to dubbing and recorded to the disc. After recording, the DVD MENU option was then available. He thought the disc was not formatted since it was straight out of the package and he always had to format other new discs. Perhaps your disc was actually already formatted?

Hi,

Does this happen with all discs? What disc are you inserting that gives this error? DVD?
