Re: 5 disc tray opens and then shuts

Your problem could be one of three differnt things. It could be that the open close switch on the front has a bit of resistance to it, sand when you press it the switch starts to conduct and then the machine thinks someone has pressed the open/close switch again, or there are a set of small switches inside the unit that the door makes contact with when it reaches the end of the travel lenth, that is binding or broken, or there is a problem with the switch or microprocessor circuitry that is affecting the open close command. The correct repair procedture would to be to get a service manual and trace out these devices that I have just described.

You probably have a misalignment of the gears, or a bad mechanical switch or optical switch. If you would like to inquire about having your Pioneer repaired, please visit my website at Thank you.BTW, I worked for Pioneer in a technical support position for audio.

The 5 disc console trays open but it does not stay open, it closes inmediately

Three things to check first the open close button is bad. Second is the tray sensor switch, and third is the microprocessor that controls the tray is bad. Usually it is the tray switch.

Disc tray on Insignia BRDVD player will not open. Any help would be appreciated. Press the open/close button and display says either open or close. The tray does not eject though.

the disc is probably stuck out of the tray and stopping it from opening. unplug, and you should be able to pry open the front case and pull the tray out.

Drawer closes by itself

The loading mechanism is off by a tooth or 2. The tray out position switch is not being triggered properly and the tray will reenter the machine. Did this just start happening? It is possible that the sensor switches are defective too. Worse case scenerio is about $5 in parts plus the local labor rate for repair.

There is a fan located inside the unit used to cool the output chip. I iwould take a look to see if it is full of dirt, or is not turning.
