Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
First make sure the "Eject" button has not stuck while pushed-in. Clean the Tray window/opening and the inside of the front part of the tray. Then try to push the tray in a little bit when closed and drag it out while open! By the time dust gathers on the greasy tray rails resulting it not to open and close to the full extent. If it helps but the problem comes back, then you should open the box and clean the rails more thoroughly. Have a look at the switch that senses the tray state (open/closed) too. OBS! That is not the same as the "Eject" button! Switch placement is device model deppendant but it is usually placed on the stationary part of the disc-player unit under the front end of the tray in the middle!
Some units do eject a disk they don't recognize. That a player can't read a disk could be a result of incompatibility, dusty optical lens or faulty/old laser. You may clean the lens by using a "Cleaning disk" or blowing with an air spray(or a straw with your mouth) through the opening of the tray.
Please rate positively if helpful, thanks!
