Why won't the disk tray open?

The tray would not open when I wanted to make a recording. There is a disk in the tray now, a recording I made previously. I played that disk back but, when I wanted to remove that disk, the tray would not open. What can I do?

Clean the belt and pullies that drive the tray with alcohol there is grease on the gears that spins up on the belt viola belt slips also, you can take an exacto knife to the inside of the pullies and scratch lines like tread for the belt to get grip. I even tried to change the belt with a smaller o ring, but could not find one exactly the right size. hope this helps Tim

The motor has either burned out, or there is a misalignment of or a part that broke. You should unplug the device. Take off the outer cover and try to manually pull out the tray but first try to get the disk out. It will take mainly a #0 or a #1 phillips head screwdriver for the whole process. If you can open the tray and push it back in, then leave it out and plug it back in and see if the motor will bring it in. If it doesn't, then the motor is (most likely) bad or a wire has a loose connection (not very likely). Otherwise if, it does work, see if it continues to work, if not, see if anything is jamming, otherwise let me know and we will go from there

Press the eject button and using two small screwdrivers on either side of the tray, try to manually coax the tray out GENTLY.

    Unplug the device from the power source for a minute or two and reconnect and see if this helps. If the issue still persists, it could indicate a failure within the gear mechanism that propels the tray, and would require servicing

Sony rdr-hx720 tray won't open and says traylocked?


The disc tray does not open and you cannot remove the disc after you press Z (open/close). ,Turn off the recorder. Once the clock appears in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead. (If the recorder does not turn off or if the clock does not appear in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead anyway.) Connect the mains lead again while pressing down A on the recorder, and release the button when the disc tray opens. Then, keep [/1 on the recorder pressed for about ten seconds until "WELCOME" appears in the front panel display

The tray will not open/eject on either deck; it tries to open but just says TOC no disk.


I have the same problem with both trays on a Sony RCD-W3 not ejecting. If you push the tray sometimes it opens, but takes a few attempts. the recording CD sometimes doesn't see the disk but ejecting and re-entering it normally gets around that. I have no permanent solution, I'm afraid. Probably needs to be opened up and rails greased/oiled or something like that.

I cannot open the DVD drawer on my Philips DVDR3480 DVD RECORDER – it just won’t open? The screen display just keeps saying ‘Error’. Any help is appreciated.


I have two of these dvd recorders and both have the exact same problem where the drive won't open. It opens fine when there is a disc in the tray. So I just unscrewed the cover, press the white part which would be over the center of the disc as it's trying to open, it should then open. Then just make sure there is always disc left in the tray.
