You are probably using incorrect disc formats in this DVD player; try DVD+RW if you must use re-writables, or DVD-R (finalised in a recorder or burned on a PC). I doubt this model supports DVD-RW, so the problem wouldn't be with the player; it would be the formats of the discs you use.

Don't use DVD-RW discs in this player if it does not support that format.

I have a Toshiba DVD player SD K741. For the past few days, when I load the dvd, I receive a message on my TV screen "Incorrect Disc." What can I do to correct this?


incorrect disk error are common with the user putting in a disc that is not compatible with the player, in most cases it would have been a RW, that was written incorrectly. If this is not the case and it is a original disc you might want to purchase a cleaning dvd witch goes in and cleans the lens.

If that does not work then the unit's lens might be defective at this point.

1. Try other disc
2. try a cleaning disc

If those do not work then the issue is with the lens.

Toshiba DVD SD-3980SU2 or SC2 player loads every disc as "bad disc"


Toshiba says:
Information for Owners of Toshiba SD-3980 and SD-K750 DVD Players spacer.gif To ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to maintain the integrity and quality of our products, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. is issuing an important product update. This is not a safety issue.
Toshiba is committed to customer service and to continuously improving the quality of its products. It has come to our attention that certain DVD players bearing the model numbers SD-3980 and SD-K750 may at some point in their life stop playing discs due to a component part failure. In such case, the error message "bad" will be shown on the unit's display. Affected units will have "SU2" at the end of the model name (e.g., SD-3980-SU2), which can be found on the back of the unit.
If you own either of these models and experience the issue described above, please contact Toshiba Customer Solutions at 1-800-631-3811 for information on how to obtain a replacement unit.

Toshiba SD-3990 does not recognize DVD+R/RW discs. You need DVD-R/RW

Device display now says "bad" and TV display says "Incorrect disc"


Sounds like the player has a dvd mech/picup problem, will probably require a repair that is more expensive than a new player, they are as low as $30 and personally I dont even try to repair my own, I just go buy a new one. There may have been some dirt on the disc that is blocking the laser if you want to try a cleaning disc I doubt it would hurt it anymore.

If the disk is not dirty, smudged up or scratched -- it is likely the laser pickup getting weak or the spindle motor not keeping at the right speed. If you have to clean the disc, wipe from the center out with a clean soft cloth.

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.
