I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to reinstall. Part #T5B
Part # T5B is involved with allowing the VCR tray to retract and lower in the DVP3150V/37 player. Without it, the tray jambs and shuts off the player. It's located on the right side of the tray mechanism. Help!
Re: I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to...
I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.

The tray needs a new motor with a new pulley that does not slip on its shaft and get a new belt too. It is easy to pull the dvd tray unit out of a GO VIDEO DVD+VCR machine to replace the motor with new pulley on it and the belt should be renewed too.The motor NOW may run only to push out the tray but it will not pull it in to LOAD the DVD or CD. This is what I found after troble-shooting the function. From Jim, and I need the same things. Can anyone tell me where I might buy those idems? email@example.com
It sounds like there is something inside the dvd player, that isn't supposed to be there, that is keeping the tray from retracting fully. Try unplugging the unit and gently turning it upside down and giving it a little shake. Not too hard. This might jar the item loose, you will hear it knocking around. If you do knock something loose turn the unit so the front is pointing up and let the foreign object fall to the back of the unit where it hopefully won't interfere with the operation of the mechanisms inside. If you don't hear something come loose, remove the screws on the bottom, sides and back of the unit to remove the top cover. Make sure you have unplugged the power before you do this. take a look and see if you can find something jammed in the track or the gears for the tray. If you do gently remove the item with your fingers or a pair of needle nose pliers. Once removed replace the cover and away you go.
If there is nothing blocking the tray and the mechanism, you probably have a gear system to close the tray. At some point someone must have pulled fairly hard on the tray causing the gear teeth to jump, check and make sure they aren't damaged or stripped. You are going to have to them either remove one of the gears (or pull it up so it can turn without turning any other gears) push the tray back into the fully closed position and replace the gear. Once you have done this you will want to test to make sure the tray will function properly. Place the top cover back on, but don't secure it with the holding screws in case you need to open it back up again, plug the unit in and test the tray. If it works unplug it and secure all the screws for the cover and away you go.
Otherwise you are going to have to play with the gears till it is back in the proper starting position. If your hearing some strange noises and its not working, then the gears are probably badly stripped. You can contact the manufacturer and see if they can sell you some spare parts or direct you to someone who can replace it. Though at this point simply replacing the unit may be less expensive.
Unfortunately you'll have to remove the upper case and take a look.
Sometimes you can see a gear that pushes the tray out. If you can turn
this gear, the tray should operate. Sometimes you have to remove the
upper portion of the drive mechanism. Remove it and remove the DVD,
reinstall the top portion of the drive and reinstall the tope case.
Don't take the cover off. Open the door and use a small flat instrument to depress the tray release buttom (it is indented on the lower right hand side of the tray. If there is a disk remove it. Turn off your system and the tray will close. Restart you system and see will the trat open.
Hi All I had a similar problem with my fathers XBV342, my problem was that the DVD tray would open but when a disc was inserted it would close then open again time after time. I took the top off of the unit and the front cover fascia panel off then checked the tray movement, I found that the belt for the tray motor located near the front of the tray was loose, which meant that the motor did not raise the drive motor to its correct location, which in turn didn't allow the motor to turn the disc, this causes the tray to open again, I guess it thinks it has a misaligned disc and ejects the tray, I hope this helps someone.
Solution for Pioneer DV-C36 Multi Disk DVD player - tray door will not stay open.
My player would open the disk tray when the open button was press but when the tray was fully open it would retract back into the unit leaving no time to change or load disks. I found a poor connection at the ribbon cable connector was causing this problem. A seven conductor ribbon cable connects the main unit with the travelling tray. A position switch (S21) senses when the tray is fully extended and retracted. On my player pin 1 of the ribbon cable connector on the travelling tray was not making an electrical connection which causes the control system to retract the tray. The fault lies in the connector - the tang was not pressing against the ribbon cable conductor. I was able to desolder the connector and pull the contact out just far enough to reform the tang with fine needle nose pliers. This is very tedious and required an eye loupe for magnification. Tools required: #1 and #2 phillips screwdrivers Soldering and desoldering irons (or other desoldering tools) Fine needle nose pliers.
Remove the tray ribbon cable 1. Remove the cabinet cover - 6 screws. Open the tray. To keep the tray from retracting pull the power cord when the tray is extended. 2. Remove the front bezel from the tray. Gently pry up the bezel by relesing the catches with a small screwdriver. Allow the tray to retract. 3. Remove the front panel - undo large ribbon and wire connections on right, remove screws left and right, release two catch tangs on bottom edge using a small screwdriver on the inside of the unit. 4. Remove the white plastic cover over the laser mechanism ( 2 screws) Remove the disk carrier by removing the center screw. 5. Extend the tray again. When the tray is out the small ribbon cable is visible below the tray. Undo the ribon cable where it attaches to the main unit unit. 6. To slide the tray off the main unit use a small screwdriver to depress the stop catches (2) in the tray. They are molded into the tray. Pull the tray out further then lift up. 7. Flip over the tray and find the small circuit board the ribbon cable goes to. Desolder the motor wires (red and black) and remove the 2 screws holding the circuit board and position switch.
Use a multimeter to confirm there is an open or poor connection in the ribbon cable connector.
Remove the ribon cable and inspect the connector with an eye loupe or other magnification device. On my player contact #1 was not positioned properly to press against the ribbon cable conductor. You can either replace the connector or repair it. Warning: repairing the connector may damage it. To repair the contact desolder the connector from the circuit board. Bend the circuit board prong straight and push it into the body of the connector which will extend the contact out and the contact can be reformed. Be very gentle. Bending the contact may cause it to break.
Reassembly is the reverse. Don't forget to solder the motor wires with the proper polarity. Red and Black are labeled on the circuit board.
