I have a DVD/VCR combo player and the DVD side does not read anything anymore. I can't even get the DVD side to open anymore. On the TV screen it just says "Incorrect Disc" and the front of the player says "Err". What happened?
I was having the same problem with the disc being ejected saying "Disc Error", but after reading comments from tkulmer posted Nov. 9, 2007(above),re. keep putting it back in. I cleaned my disc with a clean cloth, put it back in, and Voila! it stayed in and I was able to playback with absolutely no problem.
I too have the same problem. Unit just gone 12 months old and will no longer load dvds. My solution to the problem?? I will be returning my loyalty to Panasonic. Thanks for the heads up Toshiba, my first and last Toshiba purchase!

The laser in the DVD drive may be shot (?), even though it seems to read the DVD cleaner disc. I attended a maintenance class on cleaning CD and DVD writer drives for PCs and was told not to use the disc cleaners with brushes as they can knock the laser out of alignment. It's best to use a can of pressurized air to clean a drive when it's open. Just make sure not to allow any of the propellant to get inside!
If there is nothing on the disc, it will read, "no disc". It will only read and/or identify discs with media loaded or burned onto it. Your unit is a player, not a DVD+R (recorder). Can record VHS, but not 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.
THERE ARE NO HEADS IN A DVD PLAYER! IT,S CALLED A LASER. IF YOU TAKE THE UNIT APART DO NOT LOOK AT THE LASER IT WILL BLINED YOU BE CAREFULL WHEN YOU CLEAN IT. IFF WHEN YOU CLEAN IT IT STILL DON,T READ THE DVD,S IT MAY BE BAD. IF THATS THE CASE, IT,S TIME TO GET ANOTHER DVD PLAYER. THE LASER COST TO MUCH TO REPLACE.
