    I tried jiggling it every way that I could. It is out all the way, but when I go to push it in, it is stuck on the left side.

Hello,

Usually, if you are able to pull the tray as far out as it will come, then hold the tray in the front and gently twist the tray up and down. Then move it slightly left and right it will usually pop back in place.

It acts somewhat like a drawer when it get off track. Just make sure that you are very gentle when moving it so that you dont break the plastic tray.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

I have a GPX D200B DVD Player and cant get the Disk Tray to open.


unplugged the dvd player and then re plugged, power on then press the eject button. if still the loading tray won't open, at this time you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the loading tray mechanical assembly. then check for an stuck up or broken rail plastic loading assembly it was installed drive by the loading motor.if ok, check the limit switch might not get contact which the processor not turn on the supply for the motor.

Tray is stuck open and will not shut or close.


you need to open the cover of the dvd player, try to close the disc tray manually by turning the gear with your hand. see if there is obstacle on the dvd mechanical loading system, wire or ribbon may cause it.
mechanical timing and alignment is very important, when you turn the gear manually make sure that the cd loader reaches the limit switch before it closes.

switch on your dvd player and see if this works normally

I nudged the loading tray with my foot when changing a disc. As a result the tray is not opening or closing, presumably because it is no longer aligned properly. Is this likely to be something I might fix...


Mechanical timing and alignment is the problem of your dvd player.
This comes when you accidentally force the disc tray to close.
You need to open the cover of the dvd player..take out the dvd mechanical loading system try to eject it manually by turning the gear with your hand.
Make sure that the cd loader reaches the limit switch before it closes. This will return back the right timing and alignment.

My LG dv490h DVD player has its DVD drawer jammed open. When I press the button to close, it goes 20% of the way in and stops. My one year old pulled the drawer open this morning. Have taken the cover off...


The DVD tray has come off the alignment or settings which make it come OFF the mechanism. So you will need to push back the drawer back to the set position and this might be possible only after the loading mechanism is pulled out. The loading gear would have meshed with the loading drawer at mid way -due to the pull--and so it connecting only half way.
If mechanically minded you can remove the tray mechanism and reset the tray to the gear position in the DVD play/stop position.

DVD loading mechanism doesn't load completely that's why opens after attempt of loading.
You need to open top cover of unit and inspect loading belt might be lose, tray timing can be out of phase, some wire got stuck with tray while loading etc.

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

Liteon DVD Player LVW-5115GHC+ Disk Tray stuck


The tray is either broken, or off track. You may be able to get it back on track by opening the cover and checking it out, but unplug it first, and only try this if warrantee is over and you're feeling brave...
