How to remove the loader of Philips SACD1000

I need to open the tray of Philips SACD1000 manually in order to replace the loader.

the following the service manual of mechanical and dismantling instructions says:

Manually opening of tray
When it is not possible to open the tray with the open/close button, the tray can manually be opened. When no disc is loaded, unlock the tray by moving the slide from the left to right and pull tray outwards.
Remove 4 screws to remove loader.

My question: Please tell me where I can find the slide.

You power off then power back on while holding down the fast forward and rewind buttons on the recording side simultaneously. The display moves through a sequence of numbers and the trays will then open.

How do I remove the front of the tray on Marantz dv9500 so I can remove the transport from the enclosure?

Turn the laptop over, follow the guide lines of the DVD player, you should see one or two screws near the center back, remove the screw, take small needle or fine screwdriver and look for a small hole in front of the DVD loading tray, carefully insert in the hole until you hear a slight click, tray should pop open, pull all the way out and remove DVD driver. there is no need to remove bezel since everything comes out in one piece.

Non si apre il cassetto e sul display compare la scritta "blocked"

Hi there,

Firstly if there is a dvd stuck inside the machine and it won't eject then try the following: Turn off the power at the plug socket and remove the plug then look on the underside of the machine. On some Philips dvd players there is a plain white label below where the dvd tray sits under this label is a slot which gains you access to the manual release. If there is a label and slot gently pierce the label using a small screwdriver and push the screwdriver gently in until it stops then move it from right to left. This action moves a lug sited under the drive unit, this lug is the manual release for the tray. You will then see the tray open and will be able to remove the disc, moving the lug back will close the tray.
But this problem on Philips dvd players and recorders is a fault with the dvd drive and is common on some Philips machines. The only way to cure it is to replace the dvd drive unit itself, the one positive is that Philips used their standard IDE or SATA internal dvd drives, the same as in desk top computers. However a replacement drive would have to be comparable to the exisisting unit to avoid further complications. Please take note as a safety warning this is a technical solution involving the opening of the machine exposing potentially live electrical parts and should only be under taken by a trained technician.

Hope this info helps, James

Tray wont open on my philips cdr600 recorder , can it be fix

You can try the following:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power cord.
Press start and push repeatedly the eject button while the unit is starting, before the Player start reading the CD.

Try this a couple of times.

if that does not work, then you will need to disassemble the unit, unplugging from power, and removing the screws at the bottom and at the back, to access the drive and remove disk manually.

Drawer won't open. Says "blocked".

I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover
2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.
4. remove the two top screws on the DVD unit
5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near the front.
6. Now remove the tray, by pulling it out as far as it goes and then pressing two tabs on either side of the tray. These tabs look like this:
7. Now you get at the drive belt. Originally it was black; I replaced it (temporarily) with a red one in the picture below:
8. Now put everything back together.

Rio HT2030 disc loader will not open

I have had the same problem. There is a rubber ban that acts as a drive belt to open and close the disc loader. i took the cover off and then the disc loader cover off to expose the bubber ban. Then i replaced it using two rubber bans from my daughter's braces and reassembled. Works great again.

Try resoldering the TZA1033 on the top side of the monoboard, and glue a piece of aluminium for cooling on top of it.

Good luck!
