When you get to the small rectangle hole use a small flat screw driver. you'll see the lever on the door side. put you're screw driver to the front and pry it backwards and it will unlatch.just pressing on it won't do anything.

This is actually straight forward. Turn the lense cover off the front. take the three screws out now exposed that howl the lense barrel on. Don't worry you can't damage anything it's just cosmetic. Slide the barrel off. Just at the back of the barrel infront of the hot shoe you will see a small hole into the top of the camera. If you use a pen or similar device you can press the release lever to open the door manually. Thast right out of teh service manual. Good luck

Solution #7 actually worked for me. It was jammed, I dropped it, it popped right open. Go figure.

It's easy. unscrew the lens from the front. remove the three or four screws holding the lens barrel cover on. underneath this you wil find a hole. using a pen tip you can lever the lock and the door will open. from the service manual.

I was never able to fix it. I am probably going to have to send it in to get fixed. I hope that you have better luck than I did!

Nedaly, Sorry I can't help but I now have the same problem. My grandchild was playing with the camcorder and now the door is jammed. I was wondering if you could tell me what the final fix was. Maybe it could help me get this one open. I don't want to chance forcing something and perhaps break it. 89corvette boltonites@sympatico.ca

The troubleshooting section says: Symptom: Cover will not open Cause and correction: Did you disconnect the batter or AC adapter/charger during removal of disc? Reconnect the batter or AC adapter/charger and then turn the video camera on. Not sure if you've tried this but worth a shot if not. Steve

WHY MY PORTABLE DVD WON'T PLAY


It won't play for one of two reasons:

2. The DVD player's battery has run out of juice and can no longer play, meaning the player needs to be replaced.

Zenith dvd/vcr model ABV341 DVD WON'T STAY IN TO PLAY...VCR WORKD FINE


If the door does not close either something ( a coin or anything) got inside or there is a issue with the mechanism= alignment or possible bad part in that mechanism that loads and positions the disc.

A suggestion when door opens try to take a quick look inside with a flashlight to see what you can.

Door won't open


Hi!!!

What you need to do is to prepare philip screw and oil.
1.) open the back cover of your dvd by unscrewing it.
2.) look for the center area specially on the door.
3.) put an oil where the door close and open.
You can also put oil to all moving parts for much better result.
4.) then try to test it if it works,
hope it helps you and rate me if it does.thank you..

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
