CAN'T EJECT, IS BLOCKED


I had the same "Blocked" problem and solved it - by using a rubber band! Unplug the machine and take off the outer cover. Remove the DVD reader and take off the cover to the reader - you can now easily recover the DVD that was stuck in the machine. Now slide out the actual DVD tray, you will have to bend back a couple of restraining bars to get the tray out completely. You should now see a small white wheel which is actually the end of a concealed electric motor. There will also be a larger black pulley which controls the movement of the DVD tray. If there is no band connecting the pulley and the white wheel, that is your problem and I solved it with a small elastic band. Put everything back and turn on, wait for all the messages to clear and press the eject button - the tray opens simples. It has taught me never to force the tray in manually, but to always use the eject/open button.

In Philips DVDR3380/7 I need open for put DVD it say "blocked" permanently, which is the solution?


This will happen if you close the tray by pushing instead of using the insert/eject button. the BLOCKED error means the the rack and pinion can't be moved by the motor which takes too much current and stalls hence the error

The guide pin can jump is dogleg and cause the tray to bow slightly this can also cause UNKNOWN DISC as the head tries to read the DVD at an angle.

The best option is to free the tray UNPLUG and remove the cover the you will have to remove the inner cover on the top of the DVD mechanism you maybe able to see the tray bowed look underneath you should see the dogleg guide and the pin should be inside this track yours might be outside, try to re-seat don't force it or pull the tray out you may not get it back inside the unit.

With the cover back on test the eject if this still wont work there is a manual release on the underside of the unit which is clearly visible place a screwdriver into the hole and slide across to release the DVD. This model has not release hole at the front as kladdaugh suggested this paperclips type of release is normally put onto ATAPI DVD-ROMs on your PC

3380 recorder cannot open tray says blocked


I had one just the same it appears to happen when the unit has been left on standby for a long while, on old players, and if you close the tray by pushing on the front instead of using the open button.

However, you can normally get the disc out if you press the eject key about 5- 6 times in quick succession. This is only a quick fix and the route of the problem lies inside. I think your player has a micro-switch that is on its way out. If you open the unit you can short this switch prevent the blocked message but this is a bit drastic.

Time for a service me thinks.

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!
