Question about Yamaha DVR-S150 DVD Player

1 Answer

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?

    bought a new dvd (sony) and use the rest of the unit (amp) and everythink fine now. Thanks anyway.

    From my post 7 years ago above:

    It lasted for years including a Blu-ray replacement (PS3) of the new DVD player. Now I use the old units for the guest room. Replaced the Yamaha amp with a Denon AVR-3805 amp and a new free refurbed PS3 from Sony. I also replaced my Panasonic LiFi TV which Panasonic graciously covered. I'm a Panasonic man, YEA PANASONIC!. I purchased a Panasonic plasma which according to my brother Mike, (an AV expert as well as CNET and Consumer Reports review) is the best bang for the buck. See the recent CNET articles:

    Best Plasma TV's and Best TV picture quality but get them while you can as they last forever and are an excellent buy. I thought about buying a spare but I will probably never use it. Unfortunately they will stop production of their plasmas next year.

The tray on DVD won't open when pressing OPEN button DVD/CD is inside


Often the tray is powered by a rubber belt. If the latter breaks or slips the try will not open/close. The motor will work and tell the electronics that all is well because it has done its job but it really hasn't since the tray is inert!

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..

MY GAMES WONT LOAD


you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray and it should load. This worked for me 2 times.

CD drawer will not open or close


Hi, The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.

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.

CD drawer will not open or close


Had The Same With Mine. Its was the belt Inside that joins Motor To Cd Tray. Its Black and directly under the cd tray at the front. Its probably either loose like mine of maybe broken. I replaced mine with an elastic band and its been fine since.
