    My unit pauses around the one hour time when playing a movie. It pauses for just a split second. It also is very tempermental if the disc has ANY dirt whatsoever.

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??

There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it

There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

DVD drawer won't open. Worked perfectly the other night. Now makes the normal sound but doesn't open. I used paperclip and opened it and took case off and didn't see anything wrong, but I've never looked...

Repair it ur self,if u can,not than buy a new one,this things are cheap these days.The shop,probally cost the same to the repair priced as a new on.Check the motor that open the tray door,see if that motor is spinning?The motor that open the tray door,might be dead.Tries unplug,replug it an hour later,see if the thing reset itself.Might work again.

Ihave a Cyderhome dvd player, and i cannot get it to play.The green light on but cannot get the tray to open,what can i do ?

You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.

Unable to open the door of the dvd --when you press the eject button to open the slot---the door does not open---everything else works

Quick trick

First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.

Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.

if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.
