Toshiba SD 1600 acting wiggy

Hi everyone...I've had my Toshiba SD-1600 for five years now and with no probs until now. When playing a DVD, the player experiences what resembles a tracking problem whenever there is a strong flash of light, like a strobe, lightning bolt, explosion, or even an abrupt chapter change on the dvd. What gives, does it need cleaning, or just replacing altogether? What would cause this? Would using a disc cleaner have any effect at all?

Thanks again. Also, if anyone has any thoughts as to how to open a stuck DVD player door (separate player), and any thoughts as to why one disc will play in one player and not another, it would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

Not sure about your tracking

Not sure about your tracking problem. Seems weird that it happens in a movie that has a strong flash of light.

For your stuck DVD try this thread for some ideas:

For your DVDs playing in one player but not the other, see if these help:
