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.

Dvd player not locking down on disk


The odds are its a defect. If the DVD player is old. (which it sounds like) then it may just have broken. there are three little clips that stick to the disc so when it spins it doesn't go out of place. After a while you can just break it. Normally hard to do but anything can happen. Hope this helps

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.

Stuck in Standby


FOr the MVDP1102 Memorex 10.2 portable DVD Player:
I had the same problem. If you open the disc door there is suppose to be a plastic arm underneath the right side of the lid which when you close the lid, with the movie disc in, this arm will press through to a switch inside the machine and that will set the player in load/play mode. Memorex did not have parts for this player, so I unscrewed the bottom and one black screw inside where the lazer light is. This will allow you to handle the bottom back side and see underneath where the screen is you will find the switch. I rigged up a pin wire and did some small drilling. I was successful, but it wasn't easy. Most times I just fail and toss. I thing my son just open the disc door too much and that's how the piece was broken.

Stuck in self check mode


Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.

Not closing


Hello, with mechanical problems with sophisticated systems of gears etc, the only way thate one can fix it is if you send me a digital picture yourself. To access the inside of the DVD player, you will have to get a handyman to open the DVD player up with a screwdriver, by undoing some screws which hold the cover to the player itself. Then, with the player's circuit boards (The Green/brown Boards with weird components on it) showing, take around 5-6 photo's of the loading tray and the playing tray.(Where the disc is when watching a movie)In the time being, open the layer's cover as instructed before, and look at the inside of the tray for any broken plastic, debris or anything stopping the tray from opening. Good luck!

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.
