Question about Apex Digital AD-1165
I inherited my late mothers POS Apex dvd player & I was going to throw it on my driveway to make myself feel better after it kept trying to load and would just open & shut.
I opened it up (if for nothing else to learn something) & the slide tray is functioning correctly but the spindle thing isn't "popping up" to grab & spin it. I tapped it a couple of times & it popped up. it would also pop up and catch if I rotated the disc with my finger.... it also loads & plays afterwards
The old man told me to just lube it up but trying to search for a solution makes me think not so I figured I would ask the pro's.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: dvd player not loading
The lens over the laser may be dirty. Purchase CD/DVD player cleaning kit and follow the instructions for cleaning. If that does not work then it is highly possible that the unit may need to be replaced.

I just fixed this problem. This will not fix any underlying problem, but it will get you up and running again. THIS MIGHT SCRATCH THE CD.
Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. There are screws on the side and the back. Once you do you will see the dvd is not in correct position. Slide it around till you feel it drop into place. YES, YOU MAY END UP SCRATCHING THE CD. Plug the unit back in and it will eject.
For me the underlying problem is that the disc drawer closes while I am putting the cd in, causing it to not be seated properly. If anyone knows how to fix this .....

SOURCE: Door opening and closing
leaf switch is defect. It tells if the door is closed or open. not very expensive, thing is to try to find it. usually two wires. good luck

What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.
the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

Does it happen for all dvd disc or some particular dvd disc. If it is with some particular disc then clean the dvd and try them. If the problem exist for all the dvd then try to clean the lens by dvd lens cleaner and try to play. dvd lens cleaner will be available in dvd stores.
