How to fix DVD (not eject)

Please read my tips on how to fix the DVD players (not eject).

This problem is common on all DVD players such as VCD players,DVD/VCR combo,or even DVD ROM..

This simple tips is very easy to perform even you are non-pro in electronics.

This are the steps on how to do a D.I.Y troubleshooting:

  1. Remove the cover of your DVD player.
  2. Look at the DVD or CD tray assembly.
  3. Remove the whole CD tray assembly by loosening all screws at the left and right corner of the CD tray assembly and also you need to remove the front panel of the ejecting tray to get the whole CD tray assembly away from the DVD player for further repair and check-up.
  4. After that,look at the bottom of the DVD or CD tray and try to find out where's the motor that controls the ejecting tray.It is usually have a rubber O-ring or mini rubber belt that control the gear of ejecting tray
  5. Next,when you found the ejecting motor.Try to look at the rubber O-ring or mini rubber belt condition,if it is cut,loosen or disconnected from the motor.
  6. If the rubber belt is in good condition,check the ejecting motor.There are 2 ways of testing the motor,first the resistance checking-you should have a ohmmeter or multimeter (resistance or ohm range) point your (+/-) test prove to the terminal of the motor to measure the resistance.Secondly the actual testing-this procedure you need a battery 3vdc,connect the negative(-) terminal of the battery on the black wire of the motor and the positive(+) is connect to the red wire.If the motor is not spin-up replace it with the same type,rating,voltage and value.
  7. If you already done this procedure and the problem is still there after you replace the defective parts,if any.The problem could be the motor ejecting driver that found on the main board.This is not for D.I.Y because of the parts inside main board is very sensitive and hard to replace.If the trouble is on the main board you have to replace the whole main board or buy a new player.

Thank you for reading my tips.I hope to help you!!

the dvd player is not working. It says that the playback on the disk may not work. Is there any way to fix this


The most common reason for the player not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:


This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!

Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR player won't eject DVD

This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
