Have you checked to see if it is off track? Sometimes when these machines get bumpbed, dropped, or fall they can jump track. You have to take the cover off and inspect to see if it is off track when it closes and opens. It should go all the way back on the track when it closes. Be careful not to shock yourself. If it is on when you do it and your hand touches the metal parts inside you can get seriously burned or shocked.

Hi SoraTotoro,

This sounds like the child lock has been inadvertently activated . Look through the manual to find the key combination to unlock it.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: DVD Tray will not open

I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!

Most likely the tension band that is attached to the mechanical parts of motor and the tray detached. you'll need to disconnect the power and unscrew the cover open and put the band back in place.

I have a new samsung bd-f5700 player and tray won't open. Tried using the remote to open & the panel on top of player to open. Nothing works.


First, try resetting your player. Unplug it from wall for at least 1 full minute, then plug it back in. If eject function (remote or top panel) still doesn't work:

MOST DVD players (including every one I have ever worked on or owned) have a tiny manual eject pinhole located close to the tray. You may have to gently open the flip door to see it. It is usually to the right of the disc slot, but could be underneath or elsewhere close by (use a flashlight, it can be hard to see). Carefully insert a straightened paper clip in the pinhole to eject the disc. (It shouldn't matter if machine is on, but for safety I usually do this with the machine OFF and unplugged).

see http://www.ehow.com/how_2324439_eject-stuck-dvdcd-drive.html
or
http://www.ehow.com/how_2036594_fix-dvd-player.html
and http://www.ehow.com/how_6330619_retrieve-jammed-cd-dvd-player.html

If above fails, your only recourse is likely the disassembly of the machine (search "dvd disc stuck" on Google or YouTube), or taking your machine to a repair person. Best of luck to you.

  1. Open the housing by removing mounting screws and anything blocking the tray. Press the open/close control to the extend tray, then unplug the unit. To remove a clip-on tray front, brace the tray and slide the panel to one side.
  2. Unplug cables between the front panel and the interior. Remove any screws securing the front panel and remove the panel. If it won't move, check beneath it for clips or additional screws.
  3. Remove the hold-down on top of the disc tray and gently pull the tray out of the player. Clean the travel rail and guides with a swab dampened with denatured alcohol. Lubricate lightly with white lithium grease.
  4. Remove the drive belt (using gloves or tweezers) to inspect for dirt, water, or damage. Clean with a lint-free cloth moistened with denatured alcohol. If the belt is damaged, replace it.

VUP 0/9 KEEPS FLASHING DURING FIRMWARE UPGRADE NOW ITS MORE THAN ONE HOUR


I had the same problem when I made the mistake of trying to do a firmware upgrade via CD-R instead of the Network option. My player is no longer connected to the internet so I created a CD-R following the directions on Sony's site. The CD-R attempted to do the upgrade, but was stuck at 0/9 and I could hear the disc trying to read. The problem is the disc you created. You need to make another one. On the Mac, I used the Finder to burn the disc per Sony's instructions. That is what failed in the player. My second CD was created with Roxio's Toast Titanium, PC/Mac Data CD-R. If you have Windows, I would suggest using a commercial burning CD program, like EasyCD Creator and burn the two update files to the root level of the CD. Make sure the disc is finalized.
Next, you need to open the player to manually release the tray to eject the CD and swap it with your new disc. Remove the two back screws on each side. This removes the two side trim panels. Remove the two screws holding the top trim panel on each side. Then slide the top trim panel from front to rear to release the panel. If that doesn't work, open the CD cover door with your finger and then gently pull up on the top panel at the front edge to release the clips along the front, across the entire front edge. Then slide the panel back to remove it. Then remove the three screws at the front edge, and two more screws on each side. There is also one screw at the rear top edge. Remove the top panel. Then get a long paper clip. Looking at the front of the player, the manual eject hole is on the right side of the optical drive. Above the hole is an E engraved above the hole. Insert the paper clip straight into the hole and you should be able to push the release mechanism causing the tray to open. You might have to fish around a little. Slide the tray open and replace the disc with the newly burned disc (or obtain a disc from Sony for free through their website). Close the tray. You can leave the player open. Plug in the power cord and the upgrade will continue where it left off. It may take a minute or two, but you will see the VUP advance to 9/9, then finish. The tray will open and you can remove the disc. Close the tray and the player may reboot again. Once you see the No Disc message, turn off the player and pull the power cord. Reassemble in reverse order and reconnect your player to your TV and it will have the new firmware.

Hi, the dvd on my recorder stayes ejected? It will close but then will eject straight away? What can I do? Cheers.


Hello,

The fault is not from the disc, it is from the player.

The disc tray is actually malfunctioning. Which is as a result of a fault on the mechanism that is controlling the opening and closing of the disc tray.

Another fault might be that the button that controls the disc tray might be stuck.

test if it is the button.
  1. Unplug the player from the power source,
  2. plug it back,
  3. turn it on,
if it opens without you pressing the open button, then the fault is from the button.

check it for any irregularity.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the cover of the player,
  3. carefully force the front control panel open from the sides,
  4. then check for any damages,
  5. change the open button and it will be okay again.
test if it is the disc tray
press the open button, if it opens closes continuously.
then there is a problem with the mechanism that controls the open and close of the disc tray.

to fix this,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the back cover of the player,
  3. look to the left side of the player and you will see a mechanism that controls the tray,
  4. change the mechanism with a new one.
after doing that, the player will be in good condition again.

take care
