Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR
The disk tray won't open. There is no disk stuck in there. When I press the eject button, the words "load disk" light up and I can hear the tray trying to eject, but it never does. Then it will say "no disk" after a few seconds and not do anything else.
Your problem is more than likely mechanical. There is a belt that makes connection between the motor and the loading mechanism. Take the unit apart. Remove the belt it is probably in the front. Clean the belt and pullies with denatured alcohol. reassemble. The best solution is to replace the belt but this may get you working till you get one. Belt sources http://www.mcmelectronics.com/

Honestly, there is not much hope on this one. I read your posting and did not want to ignore it. Is this a new unit, recently purchased? If it is, try returning it to the local store for a refund or exchange. Most stores have a 14 day return or exchange policy on their electronic equipment. Please review the back of your receipt to find out the window for returns. If it has been more than 14 days and you are within 1 year of the purchase, you can contact the manufacturer to have the unit repaired under warranty. The tray is composed of rounded geared teeth devices that come in contact with each other to open and close the tray. These are held together by an elastic band, if this band is out of place then that would make sense if your device fails to open or close. This unit needs to be repaired by a professional as new parts are required... Best of Luck!

I've had the same problem for some time. I have found that if you insert a VHS tape on the cassette side, insert then eject, and then switch back to the DVD player the DVD door usually opens right away. Not sure what if any corrolation there is between the two sides of the player but it's worked for me.
