My Toshiba SD-210E loads dvds and will play but gets stuck after about a minute.
The player sounds as though it is struggling to access the disc.
I can skip chapters, it plays for a few seconds then sticks again.

Re: Disc loading, playing and then freezing
Sounds as though you may have a slider problem or something is blocking it. The slider is what holds the laser assy as it slides along it like a rail while the motor drives the slider by a gear shaft system or a belt system.. I've seen in the past the grease or lubercation on this slider can harden up and ive also seen something getting inside like paper or little army men who wanted to hide out and was assisted there by a wee one. although these are common, another problem is that the tracking curcuit could also have a fault like alighnment or defective part now that would also include the tracking or slider motor too. Good luck

The DVD play part has probably had it. Try putting in a CD cleaner disc (a special CD with nylon brushes on it) if you want to spend time on it, this can fix some dirt on lens problems. I would just go and but the cheapest supermarket DVD player to replace it, why the cheapest? because DVD/CD players never last very long before they fail like this.
since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer
DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow
to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.
SOLUTION: to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it
for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory.
By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no
play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card
is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get
anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto
the card the next time you watch the movie.
yes that is very possible. cleaning the lens of the dvd player should happen atleast once a month. it can also be that the lens itself is scratched or the lase does not reach the disk tracks due to dust or bad handling
The unit can recognize that a disc has been loaded but can not read the contents. This can be as simple as a dirty lens or more drastic like failing optics. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to correct the problem and a music CD will play OK, then the optics are failing. DVDs require more laser power to read than a music CD.
Sorry not a solution but experienced the same problem. The problem started off the same as you described by now my player won't play DVDs at all. Seems that the laser is faulty and it is cost prohibitive to repair (it's sold as a complete module which would be around £100). I've been advised to replace it :-(
