Question about Conia DVD8500 DVD Player

1 Answer

Conia M580 DVD player has died, cannot open disc tray to retrieve DVD disc from player. Cannot unlatch the disc tray manually, as there's no pin-hole near the disc tray, unlike most (more expensive) DVD and CD players. The disc I'm trying to retrieve is worth more than the DVD player itself!!!

You may have a stuck DVD in the player. Most DVD players have a small pin type hole in the front where you can inser a paper clip to manually open the tray. Otherwise, you have to remove the cover of the drive to actually see what is happening. support hp com Maybe this link will be of some assistance.

Can i open the dvd player from the key board


Not that I'am aware of, on the front of the DVD tray there is a small hole. Get a small pin insert in the hole until you hear a click, the tray should pop open for you to retrieve the disc.

I'm sorry that the disc tray is not ejecting. Please check whether you're able to locate a small hole under the tray opening area. If one available, please insert a pin and it will eject manually now..

Samsung dvd tray won't open....help! there is a disc in it and I can't get it to open...i got an error message that said "remove disc can't play"......but the tray won't open


On some disc players there will be a small hole in the face of the tray. This is a manual release. straighten out a paper clip and gently pusk it in the hole. The tray should come out enough so that you can pull it open by hand. Good Luck.

DVD tray won't open.


Opening a CD or DVD drive to retrieve a disc
  • Use Windows to open the drive door:
    1. Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop (or click Start and My Computer in Microsoft Windows XP).
    2. Right-click the CD, CD-RW, or DVD drive , and then click Eject .
  • Restart the computer and press the EJECT button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD drive. Try shutting down or configuring any programs that write discs or monitor the CD drive.
  • If the door still will not open, do the following:
    1. Close all programs and shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the PC from the power outlet and remove the battery.
    3. Locate the manual release hole in the front faceplate of the optical drive tray. This is a small hole under the door that is a little bigger than the diameter of a paper clip. The location of the manual eject hole will vary.
    4. Insert a straightened paperclip into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.
    5. Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer comes out about a quarter of an inch.
    6. Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.
    7. Remove the CD and turn on the computer.

A dvd is stuck in my DVR how do I get it out the tray will not open


If you take a look at your computer's DVD or CD drive tray, it should have a tiny round hole. Look close because it's only about 1/16-inch in diameter. Does your DVR disc tray have a similar tiny round hole?

This hole is for ejecting the tray if there is no power. You take a paper clip and unfold and straighten it and insert it in the hole. It should go in about 1/2 to 1 inch before it hits the unlatch mechanism. You shouldn't have to push in very hard to unlatch. If it does unlatch, the tray will pop out about 1/4" and you simply pull it out by hand the rest of the way.

I hope this helps you out.

DVD tray will not open.


Hello,

The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.

DVD tray won't open


Look for a small pin hole in the front of the DVD player. Insert a pin into the hole to open the tray.
Also try right clicking the DVD icon, click 'eject', then insert the pin into the hole.
If the door only opens partially, grab it and pull it open. Then insert a blank DVD into the tray, then see if the tray will open automatically with the disk in the tray. If so, then keep a DVD in the tray at all times.

DVD tray will not open.


Hi All
I had a similar problem with my fathers XBV342, my problem was that the DVD tray would open but when a disc was inserted it would close then open again time after time.
I took the top off of the unit and the front cover fascia panel off then checked the tray movement, I found that the belt for the tray motor located near the front of the tray was loose, which meant that the motor did not raise the drive motor to its correct location, which in turn didn't allow the motor to turn the disc, this causes the tray to open again, I guess it thinks it has a misaligned disc and ejects the tray, I hope this helps someone.
