Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

This is about an approximately 10-year-old Toshiba DVDVideo/Audio Player SD-4700. Has always worked well. Problem. I am watching TV series The Tudors from Showtime Network. Got the DVD's from the public library. All of the series's disks have played except the last disk in the final series. The DVD display window says "DISK ERROR" and there is no picture or sound. I have tried four different sets from the library and no one else has complained, but this "DISK ERROR" happens every time on this on



Answers :

I think you must in this case give the benefit of doubt to the player. Since all the disk in this series is playing well then the particular disk can have fault or damage on the tracks that seems to send in the errror as the scan encounters the errors in the digital tracks.
\015\012 Clean the disk with a disk cleaning swab, clean the head of the DVD player using a good swab. If the fault comes back check this disk with another PC or player to confirm. But just because one disk is not playing you need not have to confirm the player to faulty but it is possible that the optical HEAD is weak. I suggest you keeping using till the DVD does not detect clearly.
Hello
\015\012It is clear that your Toshiba has no problem at all; as it plays all the other discs and of different films. The fault is with the disc you put inside itself. The lead-in, lead-out section of the disc you have tried to play will have some error with it. For every disc, when we insert it into the player, the player will read this track first, where all the details of recording are burned. This information is processed and displays on the screen as its content. If this part of the disc is damaged, scratched or dirty, the player's laser head cannot read that part, in effect the entire disc content cannot be displyed, and an error messege will be displayed. That is happening with your player now. Just take the disc out, clean it well and try once again. If the effect is the same, never put it repeatedly into the player, as it may cause damage to reading mechanism and laser pickup unit. OK.

Our tv is about 3 years old. We are a Time Warner cable customer. About 2 months ago we started to notice that the picture took a ong time to appear after turning on the set. The sound played for about 5 minutes before a picture appeared. Now the sound and picture are both gone--not sure if tv,s are repaired or thrown away these days as everything is designed to require quick replacement.


I'm sure this is fairly easy to repair. It sounds likely to be a power supply problem, possibly due to bad capacitors. Your original symptoms of no picture were likely to be the backlight controller not having sufficient power to operate correctly. I ... LG 32LC7D Television

Picture problems My 4 year-old Panasonic VIERA TX-32LZD80 32 in. LCD TV is becoming unwatchable. The main problem is the picture keeps distorting and jumping along with a 'zip' sound or distortion to the sound at the same time. The distortions are horizontal and getting so bad I switch it off and give up trying to watch. I had a similar problem quite a while ago, then it got better and now its back - but much worse. Some channels just produce the odd small distortion,whilst others are unwatc

LG LC2D Recently my (about five years old) LG 42LC2D LCD television has been blacking out for varied amounts of time. Sometimes no picture is visible for minutes, other times, seconds. This occurs when watching regular cable, not HD, and when watching DVDs, and playing PS3. The sound continues to be transmitted perfectly, so I can hear the audio crystal clear, just no picture. After some time the picture will return, but it is getting increasingly worse - not too unbearable, but I know it will d

It has only 1 HDMI input and I've been using a splitter box to run my DirecTV and Xbox through the HDMI input. Worked great for years then recently there's no sound. Picture works fine and sound works through component inputs. Any ideas? Do I need to replace the HDMI input or something?
