Toshiba sd-p1400 dvd player not detecting discs

My Dvd player won't read discs, I tried running a cleaner disc to clean the lens, but it still won't read. I found out that if I open the disc lid and hold down on the disc lid button- such that the player thinks the lid is closed- I can watch as the reader tries to read the disc. When it tries to read, the disc doesn't hardly spin, but acts like it is trying to. I took my finger and spun the disc fairly fast and then held down on the disc lid button, and then I took off and spun the disc and read and played it. Is the motor bad or something? Thanks

I think the lens on my portable dvd player model no. SD-P1400 is damaged. when disc is put in, the message no disc appears. can the lens be replaced?

Hi,
It is normal when DVD player requires lens replacement. The lens can be replaced. But please clean first before you decide to replace the lens. Sometime clean the lens will restore your player. Use lens cleaner to do cleaning on it

Disc error

Hello,

how long have you been using the player. There is every tendency that the lens (laser) of your player is weak and that's why it cannot read or play DVDs.

The lens (laser) is what makes the player reads discs, and if the lens is weak/dirty, there is no way it can read or play disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.

Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

Won't play any DVDs

I mostly first always recommend a dvd lens cleaner to clean the lens incase there is something on the lens.

Is the player underwarranty? the lens may have a issue other than dirt and might need to be replaced.

What happened last time it worked fine? try unpluging the dvd player for 5 minutes and try again.

NexxTech DP3222 DVD Player

Try a Laser Lens Cleaner disc.

It is a CD with brushes on the bottom to help clean the laser lens (used for reading discs).  It can be found cheapest in grocery stores, then office supply stores, and finally most expensive in electronics stores.  It will usually run you about five to ten dollars,and can be used multiple times on any disc drive.
