  1. 1

    Clean the problem DVD with a clean, lint-free cloth or lens cleaning paper and a few drops of rubbing alcohol. Apply the alcohol to the cloth or to the lens paper, not to the DVD itself, then rub gently in a circular motion.

  2. 2

    Load a different DVD to determine if the problem is with the disc or the Toshiba DVD player.

  3. 3

    Make sure the problem DVD is set to a region code for your Toshiba LCD/DVD combo. For example, Region 1 is the DVD code for North America. Only DVDs recorded for Region 1 will work on Toshiba players sold in the United States and Canada.

  4. 4

    Unplug the Toshiba for five to 10 minutes to reset the unit.

  5. 5

    Clean the laser lens inside the DVD player using a lens cleaning product such as Memorex. Lens cleaners are available at electronics retailers and most stores that sell DVDs.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't attempt to open the cabinet of your Toshiba LCD/DVD combo. Power transformers inside make it dangerous for an untrained consumer to attempt internal repairs.
