Question about Toshiba SD-3980 DVD Player

1 Answer

Never again I am a gadget guy. This was the worst product I ever purchased in 35 years. Instead of sticking with Sony I was seduced by the special discount offered by Future Shop. The unit stopped working after 3 days. The DVD will freeze up. I turn of the DVD player, turn it back on, and it displays ?bAd? on the screen. Then I put another disk in, it will still stay bad. When I returned the DVD player I asked the sales person if this is a problem product and I was ready to exchange it for a Sony player and pay the difference. I was told it never happened before and I am the first customer with this problem and I was stupid enough to accept a replacement, Shortly after I had to go to Europe for one year and when I returned I unpacked the second one and hooked it up. Halfway through our first movie the picture started freezing and pixelating like you wouldn't believe. This kept happening in 10 second spurts throughout most of the movie. And then: ?bAd? again. My disc was brand new, so it was the Toshiba DVD player. Only now the warranty had elapsed. If Toshiba is not able to produce a reliable product as simple as a DVD player what about the rest of their product line? Never again.

That sounds like you require a new/replacement screen.
Check your date of purchase with a warranty repair in mind.
Do it quickly as it may still be covered.

My phone says contact your server

most probably your phone has a software problem and need to be reformat.
there is no available manual format for razr v3i so we need a special gadget to reformat it.
the cheapest way to fix your phone is to have it reformat at your nearest service center or repair shop instead of buying those expensive gadget for this problem.


My memory stick doesn't stay clicked in in my Sony Cybershot camera. I have just purchased a new memory stick. Any ideas would be great thanks Shona

Hello if memory stick is not working then it is better to replace it, because if the product was OK then it has to work, as the stick is new then you have the opportunity to replace it, and take the camera with you to check new one in camera,
if you dont want to replace then check this stick to card reader and if card reader detect it then format it there and then place it again to camera.
Hope this helps, if so do appreciate my effort by rating the solution Good Luck, Cmptrlink

I have Ultrex II cookware. the nonstick interior is peeling off several of my pans and getting into the food. very disappointed. hope it is not a health problem.

most of this is teflon plastic , you have probably eaten worst . but there is a spray replacement to re-coat your cook work. just heat high and spray on and cool off and done non-stick again foe a few years at least . some can be purchased @ Walmart. or on Ebay hope this works out for you. use only plastic or wooden spoons etc, not metal it scraps it off again ....... >

The Office you now have was a trial version, you must purchase it if you want to use it again.
If you don't have the money for it then get OpenOffice instead, it's free.

Sony white screen of Death, - 4 out 5 phones.

Sony Ericsson is a great product - the screen of death is normal because they have a poor software - it gets caused by taking off battery too fast, disconecting or connecting to usb cable and other reasons.
Worst for worst a simple flash should resolve - for the warranty - if the phone is over $300 then warranty is worth it, otherwise the 1yr free phones standard warranty should be ok, because they are usually cheap to fix.
