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

Re: no response from dvd following pushing drawer shut

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.

Hello, we have an Orion DVD/TV combo and have no remote for it. Is there any way to play a DVD without the remote the Play button alone on the unit does not play the DVD from its menu? We live in...

You should be able to do a channel search and come across the inputs either at the upper end or the lower end of the channel search. Using the channels on the TV itself, not cable or satellite, scroll through the channels until the desired input is found. Once on the desired input open the DVD player and insert a DVD and close the drawer. The DVD should start to play automatically. When it gets to the place on the DVD to actually "play movie" press the select/enter button on the remote. As for the replacement remote I would get a universal remote. They are far fairer in price than an original replacement remote and every bit as reliable. Just make sure to take the model of your TV/DVD player with you to make sure the remote you purchase is compatible. You probably need to go no further than your local hardware store or department store. Save on the shipping too. However if you are set on getting the original remote here is a place they also sell a few generic remotes for a few dollars less.

It is most likely a bad IR diode underneath the prisim in the VCR, common failure for those combination units. I have used a simple generic diode from Radio Shack or you can spend a little more and get the politically correct part from almost any electronics vendor like Vance Baldwin ot Tritronics.
Be observant when installing these they are polorized and go in only one direction. Getting one in reverse will burn up the new diode instantly.

DVD going crazy

Not sure what the problem is..could be a problem with the relay or powerboard. Best bet is to get a repairman take a look at it. Dont try to open it yourself, as there are high voltages inside (even when powered off) that can kill...

Unit shuts off automatically after power on.

You have an internal short in the electrical line. your wall a/c [120 volts] goes inside and is converted [changed] to DC [ like a super battery] There are a lot of connections coming out of this POWER SUPPLY[super battery] to FEED other electrical circuit. ANY one of the circuits can demand more then power supply can give and will cause it to SHUT DOWN [turn off to protect itself]
unless u know what u are doing [" DANGER!! wILL rOBINSON, DANGER!!] you should not mess with it.

TV shuts itself off after a few minutes. Will also shut itself off if the DVD open/close button is pushed. Not sure if a DVD is in the machine or not. Any ideas??

I know that shortly after I purchased this tv mine also shut itself off occasionally. The owners manual says that if it is on dvd mode and it's paused or on an inactive menu or something for 15 minutes or so that it would shut itself off. If a dvd is stuck inside it may be causing this? I have no idea about the open/close malfunction.

Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR player won't eject DVD

This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.

Toshiba MD13N3 13" TV/DVD COMBO powers up but will shut off

This is a hard call my friend as it could be a power supply circuit problem or a mechanical problem with the disc mechanism. Most likly the first. Your probably gonna cause more damage to the unit trying to force open the door to get the disc out. SERVICING Do not attempt to service this unit yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. For example: a. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged. b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit. c. If the unit has been exposed to rain or water. d. If the unit does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions, as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the unit to its normal operation. e. If the unit has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged. f. When the unit exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for service. Call 800-457-7777 Good Luck
