Lacie Super Writemaster door will not open

When trying to put in or take out a dvd, the door seems to stick. Have been using homemade hook to pull it on out and just push on the door to get it to close all the way. Now it just does not want to open. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: DVD loader mechanism

It is called the slider assy. The slider moves the laser assy back to home or start position. It is a small belt underneath or there is gunk or hair in the gear mechanism. A very common problem with CD/DVD players/recorders. Very good though that you saw it was not comming back to home place. I wish I had a manual to assist you but I do not. Im telling you the most common problems with the slider mechanism. Good Lck

SOURCE: Dvd tray will not close

Sorry to say, but you pulled the bugger out of alighnment, and the only way to fix it would be to get a manual and see how it goes together, unless your very mechanicly inclinded and can figure out the loading mechanism. It may be a cam driven loading tray or a gear or belt driven. Also there are limit switchs that a part of the drawer hits to tell the unit when it reaches the fully open postion as well as the fully closed potion. good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

SOURCE: dvd player won't open

I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:

1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.

2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.

3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit

4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".

It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:

remove power cable to dvd right rear of unit on circuit board
(squeeze plastic connector and pull up)

remove ribbon cable CAREFULLY wiggle it from side to side and it will come up clip_image002.jpg

Then with drive removed, open up drive to access the bottom near front door

Once open you will see a smalll motor and a white pice of plastic that slides. with tray closed slide that piece of plastic as far towards the middle as it will go clip_image003.jpg

with that slid all the way over you should be done.
close it up and be carefull sliding the ribbon cable back into place

Worked for me!

Firewire connector doesn't match


It sounds like you may have one of the newest MBPs that doesn't have a firewire port. If that is the case, it is still possible to connect firewire peripherals through a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable.

Writemaster door won't open.


your problem is a mechanical meaning you have to use a paper clip or any thin hard wire you can insert on the pin hole below the eject tray to manually open the disk tray. it will be wise to have it replaced since this problem will continue.
