Re: dvd door

In the user or instruction guide, there should be a way they show you how to open the tray door if a disc becomes stuck most of the time. if it does not then the unnits going to have to be taken apart, and if you havent a clue how it disassembles you could cause more problems. The units going to have to go into a repair shop because this is a solid state unit and its not a serviceable unit to a user.

Dvd tray will not open

Sounds like it's jammed it self up, if you got finger nails try pulling the front on the dvd drive as you push the open button, otherwise look for a little tool of some sort to wedge in the front of the dvd drive to give it alittle movement as you press the open button, it may need a bit, just be careful not to break it lol , if still no luck unscrew the sides and back if it has screws at the back , lift the top off , and push the dvd drive from in there , that will atleast get the disk out, and lets hope solve future problems ,

RCA RTD315 Theater System The DVD Player recently

My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?

CD/DVD door will not open

I have the same problem once in a while usually after a disk read error. If you power off the system (unplug it) it will reset and the door will open.

Dvd player won't open

I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:

1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.

2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.

3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit

4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".

It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:

Dvd door

I had the same problem. It started after I plugged a PS2 into the system using the A/V cable ports in the front. I discovered just by unplugging the cables the door opened again.
