    my buddy has a toshiba sd 2710 dvd player (same as mine). he had a power surge and the unit will no longer play.
    the local fix it shop says the 'surge protection unit' needs to be reset.( for $60.)
    any one know how to reset it?
    any help will be appreciated!

    I'm not familiar with the Toshiba unit but some electronic devices have a "circuit breaker" like switch that, when activated by a surge, will open the power circuit. If your friend's unit has no power when turned on this could be the case. If the unit is not under warranty you might e-mail Toshiba support and request advice on how to reset the device.

    Many times "resetting" the surge protection unit means replacing it. A $60 repair obviously doesn't require much labor (about an hour) so it's probably something simple.
