No response from dvd following pushing drawer shut

I didnt realize that this unit would not automatically start to power closed upon nudging the drawer and seem to have done some kind of damage when I pushed it shut. Is there some reset sequence for the drawer mechanism or did I fry the damned thing? the unit is not mine and I am trying to resolve it for the owner . thanks in advance

You have likely broken the timing of the dvd mechanism, especially if you heard any clicking sounds when you 'pushed it shut'. Everything from the tray to the traverse deck that holds the optical pickup is ran on a system of gears that if forced is easily broken. Don't even attempt to take it apart as even a pro would struggle to re-time a disassembled mech! I reccomend you take it to a repair shop for an estimate.

How do I open the player to remove a DVD?


The DVD may have gotten jammed if the player was dropped or shocked with it inside. In this case, disassembly may be required to remove it. Sometimes the ejection mechanism becomes weak or the tray starts to bind. Recently, I had a Zenith player on the bench with just such a problem. When a DVD was placed in the tray, it required a gentle nudge to close. Even cleaning and dry-lubing the rails did not help.

There is water left in the fisher paykel dishdrawer after cycle. it is a single drawer. it is not displaying an error. how do we get the water out?


Hi,
I need to know which model you have, so I can walk you through this. Or close drawer, push start, the unit will drain first, when done draining, push stop or pause before filling starts, then power to shut down. This will get rid of the water only. I would check the drain hose and all drain sources for obstructions, this unit has a time drain and if obstructed, it will leave water in the unit. Is this a double drawer? Is the problem only seen in one drawer (lower), need model number to unit stand what problem you may have.

Good Luck

Sharp Insight Pro microwave drawer KB6024MS not working


The drawer often stops working when it is abruptly stopped while opening and forced closed or vice-versa. To fix, simply do the following:
1) Push the draw all the way closed
2) Push the "Setup" button repeatedly until the "Open/Close ...?" appears.
3) Hold the Start Button until the time reappears in the display.
4) Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times
5) Unplug the Microwave for 30 minutes.
The drawer is now reset. The drawer will now open electronically (automatically) either by pushing the open button on the panel or by pulling the drawer handle slightly.

Ihave a Cyderhome dvd player, and i cannot get it to play.The green light on but cannot get the tray to open,what can i do ?


You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.

The eject button on my VRDMC5 DVD recorder does not work at all.


When idsk is not recognized it is because the laser mechanism can no longer focus on the disk. If this happens with all disks then the unit is fubar and it is time to go shopping since repair is not cost effective.

Lg rc797t dvd drawer will not close consistently


I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.

I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.

So,
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.

SONY DVD Player refuses to load DVDs


What you might of done is pushed the dvd tray to close it, so its out slightly.Come across it a couple of times. all i did was, open the tray & before it started to close, switched off the power. pull the tray until it opens fully(dont yank it). when its fully open, try to pull it very slightly more. plug it back in & let it go back its self, if it doesn't. push it. all thats happened is its just out slightly. messing about with it like this will sort it im sure. let us know how you get on. martindean71@googlemail.com
