Bottom Line:   
Toshibas just don't last and this one is no different. The first wouldn't even turn on, the second one lasted 6 months. DON'T BUY TOSHIBA, THEY HAVE NO QUALITY CONTROL!!!!

Good Player. Konked out on me after 3 years of heavy use. (At least 2 to 3 times a day on average). I tried the quick fix that the other guy mentioned about pulling the threads out of the laser and re inserting them. IT WORKED!!!

Bottom Line:   
I also had the problem where the player would refuse to play any disk. This occurred after about 2 years of use.

It was a very easy fix, so I am posting this to help people in a similar situation.

Take the cover off and then take the secondary cover (over the laser) off. Open and the close the disk tray. You should see the laser glow bright red for about 2sec. while the motor runs.

If you don't see the laser light up(like me), pull the ribbon-style cable out of the connector both at the laser and the board. Then reinsert the cable ends.

That's all it took for me. Works great now!

Player works great. Never had any problems so far. Plays all DVD-r i throw at it. Also plays cd-rw discs. Do hate the remote though. too small for my hands. Other than that its a great reliable DVD player.

Bottom Line:   
I got this DVD player as a wedding gift, and recently just crapped out on me. The player refuses to read any DVD disc I put in it now, which from reading some of the review's for this player I guess I should not be suprised! Customer service at Toshiba was worthless, and I suggest you all that have had this problem write a letter to Toshiba, as I did. They need to know that this player is crap and they need to do something about it!
