Toshiba DVD ROM SD-M1912 Tray Opens Intermittently or Partially

This DVD-ROM is used in my KiSS DVD player. The problem is opening the tray. Sometimes it opens; other times it doesn't. Sometimes it opens a bit then suddenly the tray is withdrawn into the drive. It may be difficult to find another DVD ROM that fits properly into the player which I reslly like because it has an Ethernet port and plays DivX and XviD. Any ideas?

You may be out of luck As most toshiba drives are made by a differant division of toshiba then what the computers are and most of these drives come as a whole part and the computer divsion at Tosiba dosent even have the schematics for them as like I say they dont fix them they simply replace them as a part in whole. All differant drives will have the same pinout as the drives are interchangable. But before I spent alot of time experimenting I would make sure the drive works in a puter. Good Luck

unplug it and try it again, if that doesn't work see if theres a pin hole where you can push a paper clip in by the tray area.

SOURCE: Toshiba SD-5000 DVD Player - disc tray stuck

Try first turning off the player and turn it back on and eject it using the eject button on the unit and also try to eject it using the remote.. IF still wont eject this can be a mechanical function on the ejecting part of the unit that you may need to open the unit and check for that..

Hope that helps.........

My sd-k770 loads a dvd and then opens the tray backup without ever playing. Basically doesn't seem to want to keep the loading tray shut.


Most likely the laser pickup needs cleaning. It is not seeing the disk. If cleaning does not help, the pickup itself is probably bad. These are usually not feasible to repair as the pickups cost as much or more than the whole unit. Thanks

Toshiba DVD player doesn't retract or load media. DVD carrier is stuck in the out position


There is a rubber band on the motor that opens the tray out to load the disc, somehow that must of slip off the motor. Or the motor itself went bad.

DVD tray in SD-V296 will not open


Hi!

Thank you. Yes, we did solve the problem; in fact, it was the way we had solved it one other time, even though I had believed it a fluke then:
we simply disconnected the unit for a couple of hours, plugged it back in and, just as last time, the tray opened easily.

Sincerely,

Dean Hunt

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.

Upon trying to remove a disk, disk remains in player and tray opens empty


This is caused be the "lift" part of the mechanism not functioning properly. A fix may be inexpensive or not, depending upon what is needed to make it rise and lower properly....accordianman

DVD player tray will not open


Maybe this will help someone look in the right direction. A friend gave me a KISS DP-1000 with the same problem: The TV showed the 'Eject' graphic, and nothing happened. There is no little hole that you can poke a paperclip in, like on a PC. I opened the player, and still could not find anything. Then I googled the model of the actual tray mechanism (DSL-710A). The datasheet said that it did have an 'emergency eject' machanism, operated by a Philips screw at the bottom of the tray. There are no holes at the bottom of the DP-1000, only a dimple that dead-ends. I broke through the bottom of the dimple with a small, flat, screwdriver, then enlarged the hole. I felt around with a medium Philips and it fitted into something. I twisted gently, and the tray popped out. Why KISS covered the 'emergency eject' screw is anybody's guess, but I am not buying any of their products.
