    Hello folks

    I just checked my 2.5 year old Toshiba 1600 which will no longer recognize any discs... It will not even read CDs anymore - all it gives is the "Check Disc" Error. Does this mean the player is no longer serviceable? Please advise...

    Try unplugging the unit for a little while (a few minutes, at least) and then restarting. Also, have you been feeding the machine clean discs? Just some offhand ideas.

    Thanks for the response, Mr. Briggs.

    They are pretty clean (light scratches at its worst).

    I guess I am trying to figure out if it is worth "fixing" by taking to a repair center or just getting a progressive scan player (as we all know, broken hardware => new hardware [​IMG] ) Thing is, finances this month are a bit tight, and I do have other DVD players in the house ( a Toshiba 2700 ( the 2-disc changing one.) )

    I will try your suggestion, and I will also continue trying to use DVD lens cleaners ( maybe a wet lens cleaner will do better)

    Well, nothing seems to work, so that means I will get a new player.

    I am leaning toward a Panasonic RP-91 since it is progressive (my first) and seems to do well with lots of diff equipment.

    My main set up is:

    36" Toshiba TV with only S-Video (3~4 years old)
    HK AVR520
    JBL N25 and N20

    The one in my own room (which is probably the most used) is

    Yamaha RX420
    JBL Satellite Speakers (4) with S Center and Sub.
    Toshiba 27" Flat Screen TV with Component inputs.


    Would you folks recommend the RP91 for either of my set ups?

    RP91 is apparently pretty good. I can vouch for the toshiba 3800 or 4800...both excellent machines.

    Just ordered the RP91 in champagne color fron Newegg.com with 2 day fedex. The many opionions on this site for that player had already sealed the deal for me. Besides, if I do at some point get a LARGE WS HD TV (> 40") I know that this player will be able to perform...

    Thanks for all the advice..
