Tray opens but won't close or closes but doesnt play

Unit had been playing perfectly since I got it in February, 2005 and today just froze with the DVD picture on the screen. Pressing buttons on the remote to no avail I used the buttons on the unit. It turned off and then turned on but kept blinking reading as the DVD soun up. Tried different DVDs but no joy. It will shut off by pushing the power button. Opened the unit up and tried to clean the lens but same problem. Any ideas?

Ihave a Cyderhome dvd player, and i cannot get it to play.The green light on but cannot get the tray to open,what can i do ?

You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
Wait till the unit is at the Samsung logo screen.
2) Open then close the tray, wait to see the No-Disc Message in the top Left Corner
3) Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit code.
In this case Repeat 29334

7) Press Eject to CLOSE to close the disc tray.
8) Power the unit off
9) Now power the unit on again, it should now read all regions of DVD Disc.

How can I unlock my Uk Philips DVD player - model 728/051 to play multi region dvd?

I think the following should work for this player-
  • Power On the unit and Open the tray
  • Slowly press 9, 9, 9 and then 9
  • Press 0 for region free
  • Close tray
Note: If the above code doesn't work then attempt the same operation with the tray Closed instead

Tray opens / closes on its own and will not play

Your open/close button might be stuck, you can try and unplug it and spray it with silicone lubricant and push it over and over again for a couple of minutes and then turning it back on after about 30minutes so the lubricant dries down first.

If all else fails, have a local appliance technician take a look at it...

Tray is not opening

To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.
