Front of dvd tray broken off -- dvd stuck inside

My son managed to break the front piece off of the dvd tray on this machine. It still has a dvd in it, but it will not load, nor will it open. I would be interested in finding out if this might be fixable, and would at least like to be able to get the dvd out. It is currently sitting there churning, attempting to open.

    Thanks! Unfortunately, when I went to try this, I discovered that this DVD tray did not have a hole in the front. :( Eventually, after unplugging the machine and plugging it back in, I got it to open. There was a piece of plastic underneath the DVD in the tray (part of what held the front on), that seems to have been the primary problem. Once I was able to get that out, it now seems to open and load and everything.

In the front of your dvd tray there is very small hole. Straighten a paper clip and push straight in and it will release the mechanism.

I kept a disk in a dvd writer and after sometime it has broken in the writer i have removed the disk tray and removed the broken disk pieces now the tray is not going inside


You need to open the cover of you DVD driver to check if there is some particle left inside the DVD. As there is a possibility that there is something left inside the DVD. If you have idea you can open it and remove everything left inside the DVD.

Unit on standby mode only, the dvd rack didnt open when open button was pressed.


Turn off and unplug at mains Plug back in and turn on press standby button so power light come son. If pressing open button on player (rather than remote) doesn't work it may be a disk that is not sitting properly in the tray. You could try sliding a very thin blade (preferably something with an insulated handle!) gently in the top of the tray to press the disk downwards whilst gently prising under front edge of the tray with a small screwdriver. If you can manage to press the open button at the same time as doing both these things it may help.
If that fails to solve the problem it may be a broken drive belt or worn cogs in the tray operating mechanism. DVD players are so cheap these days that repair is seldom worth the expense.

Dvd is stuck inside and drawer will not open


Yes, it was a piece of the addhesive dot that was stuck to the back of the disk. I unplugged the unit (of course), removed the 10 screws holding the cover on the chassis and that exposed the disk in its tray. I could not manually open the tray still, but I was able to remove the tape dot from the disk while it was still in its tray. All is well now.

CD ROM is jammed-wont open


This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.

CARS DVD COMBI DVD STUCK


Your son may have stuck something else in there too!!!--God knows mine did!!!!!! I have stated in here already how 2 access the insides of the unit.Check the questions asked by others and u will find it. If all else fails and you r forced to get it serviced by a professional, you might want 2 prevent this from happening again by removing the "smiley face mouth" piece that is attached to the tray when it opens so that little people or others don't pull it open:) It unsnaps, very easy to do

DVD stuck/jammed in tray


there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
