Toshiba DVDR19DT Help


Standard Member
Hi All,

I bought a Tosh DVDr19DT VCR\DVD combi some time back and have been very pleased with it. However, while recording a tv show this evening, the dvd made a loud fluttering noise, an error came up on screen and it continued to flutter while the little figure of 8 symbol came up on the display. This continued until I managed to eventually get the tray to come out. However,it was minus the disk and the tray will not got back into the machine.
Does anyone know what has happened and if there is a way of retrieving the disk safely. Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I turned the machine over, shock it and the try went back in by hand. Once powered up, I ejected the disk and the tray opened but no disk however after a second attempt, the edge of the disk was visible and I could pull it out. I would still like to know why this happened but will get it looked at by a qualified engineer before I put it back into use.
