Problem: The picture and sound (video and audio) keeps skipping and jumping.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: There are usually two reasons for skipping or jumping: dirt and scratches.
Dirt: There may be some dirt on the DVD (wipe gently with a lint-free cloth from the centre of the disc outwards). If the jumping and skipping is on all discs, the lens might have some dirt or dust on it. Buy a cleaning disc (google!) and let it run.
Scratches: Scratched discs are difficult to mend. If it is a personal disc (i.e. home-made, photos, home movies etc), you might be able to copy the disc to a computer and then make a fresh copy. If it is a store bought disc, you might still be able to try to do this but the disc might have copy protection. It is illegal to break copy protection, so I can't recommend the many guides on Google for doing this.

Solution 1: It sounds like your disc tray is out of alignment. Google "fix disc tray alignment" for help.

Problem: I can't hear anything happening when I put a disc in. Why?

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: This may be a spindle motor failure. You can replace these for anywhere between twenty and fifty pounds if you do it yourself, but you will void your warranty. If your machine cost you anywhere under 80 pounds, it's probably not worth you doing this.

Drive spindle motor failure is not the only reason for this, but it is one of the most common. Before you buy a new motor, check other problems first, such as checking if anything is catching on the mechanism and stopping the disc from spinning correctly

Problem: Discs come out of my player with a scratch on them. WHY????

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: There is probably something that has broken off inside the casing and is touching the disc as it spins or you insert or remove a disc. Check thoroughly inside for any sharp plastic or metal sticking up near where the disc sits. Only use cheap or blank discs to check that this problem is solved.

Problem: When trying to play a vhs cassette, it will work for approx. 5-7 seconds then stop and shut down the unit

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: It sounds like a dirty mode switch which was the same issue I had with a Toshiba RDXV59DT when trying to play a tape
Cassette would load try to play then stop some times unit would turn off some times the tape would stay and catch in the loading lugs
It's a full on job if it's a Toshiba Combo unit as you need to remove front and rear panels HDD unit and then remove VCR unit and board from the case, the VCR mechanism has then have to lifted up at the front from the circuit board to get at the mode switch which is located at the front right hand side of the circuit board on the upper side its a small white plastic circle with a location pin which sits into the capstan gear that's why you need to raise the metal VCR unit up out of the way to unclip the pin and clean contacts, you have to remove 2 screws on underside of the board to allow VCR unit up enough to remove pin but cables do not need de soldering there is enough slack to raise the unit up or you could just leave it together and just keep spraying switch with cleaner in hopes it will be cleaned enough to get it to work correctly, I took mine apart and cleaned it and now it works fine
