Dvd player not working

I have a toshiba sd 4900 dvd player it worked fine for a while but now it wont play at all, i took the cover off and saw that the disk doesnt even spin when you press play..it also takes like 30 seconds to open and close. I cleaned the lens so i know thats not the problem, i also made sure there wasnt any wires loose.is there anything i can do to get the disk to spin?

If the disc isn't spinning, and you have cleaned the lens (using a proper method) then it is likely that the laser has failed. The disc usually won't spin until the laser has sent/recieved a pulse from the surface of the disc. A new laser is usually about the cost of a new player.

The screen goes black every few seconds while playing a dvd. I've tried cleaning the player already and still have the same problem.


I am having a similar problem with mine... same model. It worked fine last night but this morning, went on the fritz. It started pausing every few seconds and so we took the DVD out. This evening, I tried to play a number of different DVDs but now the player will not even read any of the disks. I've had this DVD player for about 6 years so maybe it is just time for something new!?

Toshiba SD-K625 5 disk player won't play DVD but will play CD


Could be that the laser mechanism has lost its ability to focus properly on the dvd disks. U might want to try a firmware upgrade just in case the player has corrupted software. If not effective, then it is time to go shopping since a repair is not cost effective.

Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:

Try this, as posted on www.videohelp.com:

Put in DVD.
When you get region whine message press: [menu] [1] [play]
Disc should play, but with region message still up.
Press Marker then Clear. Message is now gone.

You can go to the menu for setup, or keep watching the movie.

Toshiba SD-K860 DVD Player wont load DVD's


Having the same problem. DVD player loads enough to identify it is a DVD or a CD, but won't actually start playing anything.

Hi Koji, My Toshiba DVD player does the same. It stops playing the disc, and the icon for incorrect disc displays. Often I cannot even start a movie. I keep getting BAD on the readout display also. I try hitting the player, or the stand in which the player is sitting, and sometimes it goes away and the movie plays. I will never buy Toshiba again.
