Disc loading problem

Disc tray was forced open by child after being jammed in a nearly closed position. After getting tray to close properly, the player does not seem to recognize an inserted disc (DVD, etc.). The disc tray closes with disc inside and then after a few seconds the disc is automatically ejected. Observed with cover off and see no indication of drive trying to spin up when disc is inside. Interlock damaged? All connectors are plugged in. Thanks for any suggestions!

LG DRT389H will switch on OK but the disc draw will close when a disc is loaded, but comes straight out again and will not play.

There is a loading motor and a belt associated with it, connected to a gear wheel assembly that pulls in the disc tray as well as gets it out. If the loading belt, said above, will get loose, the disc loading tray wont get into it properly. There is a sensor switch fitted inside the loading mechanism, which senses the proper tray in action, as this tray will touch it when it ahs been fullly loaded. Due to any reason, the switch said above does not engaged properly, the main system control IC will detect the loader position to be improper, and will give command to eject the tray. That is now happening to your DVD player.
If you have knledge and experience, just open your DVD player. locate the loading belt, and repalce it with a new one. You can buy this belt from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town. Just keep the old belt in hand as a sample, when you go to buy a new one. OK

Open & close disc doesn't work. It is open not but I can't close it. Looks like both open and close don't work.

There are three possibilities for this trouble with this DVD player. The first one is imprper loading function due to loading motor or loading belt trouble. If loading motor is weak [that is its pulling power has gone low] the tray will not close properly into the mechanism, and will not touch the load sensor switch fitted inside the mechanism. If this happens, the main system control IC will detect improper loading and will turn the tray out again to load it properly. Just try to close it without a disc inside the tray, and check whether it closes well. If it does so, or the trouble repeats, change the loading belt first. In most cases, this will retify this type of trouble.
The second one is, bad 'Sled' motor. sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside the mechanism. After proper loading, if the disc do not spin inside it, again the system control IC will sense it, and will eject the tray. The sled motor also is a replacable part.
The third one is, damaged gear wheel in the loading gear section. to detect and repair any of above trouble, you have to open your DVD player, and take the DVD mechanism out of it, and is somewhat semi-skilled work indeed. Check these first. If you want anymore assistance from me, feel free to get be by fixya. If you are somewhat skilled, and have confidence and can follow the diagrams, send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send the service manual of your DVD player by return mail. All details and disassemblng procedure are in it. OK

I insert a movie from the video store in the dvd player Zenith DVC2550.It got stuck in back and turn table was rotating without picking up the disc. I had open cover to remove the disc. I manage to close...

It sounds like you jammed the door gear which must be closed prior to playback. You can try to take the cover off again and cycle the insert mechanism but if you put much force on it the machine may be destroyed...

According to your description, it seems that the disc tray is not loading into it porperly i thinks. Just do one thing. Without any disc in tray, close the tray either by using remote control or the front panel opn/close button of the system. If the tray closes first, and then reopens again without any command, make sure that the disc tray mechanism does not working properly, and the disc is not loading into it in place.
If this is alright, place a disc in the tray, set close, and push the tray with your finger slightly as it closes, and see whether it loads properly and play the disc. If so, loading belt inside the loading mechanism is worn out, ans should be replaced. In most cases, this may be the fault. Check it.
You can do the repair work, if you have some knoledge in electroncis, and its mechanical function. If not, get it repaired by an experienced service technican. Most of them can do this work, as it is simply a mechanical one. OK.

I nudged the loading tray with my foot when changing a disc. As a result the tray is not opening or closing, presumably because it is no longer aligned properly. Is this likely to be something I might fix...

Mechanical timing and alignment is the problem of your dvd player.
This comes when you accidentally force the disc tray to close.
You need to open the cover of the dvd player..take out the dvd mechanical loading system try to eject it manually by turning the gear with your hand.
Make sure that the cd loader reaches the limit switch before it closes. This will return back the right timing and alignment.

The DVD Player won't Open/Close and there is a DVD inside. How do I force it open?


The DVD player jammed, that is why it is not opening.

To get it to open and close, you will have to unplug the player, then unscrew the screws around it. Take off the cover then you will have access to the disc tray. Then you can plug the player and press open, it will attempt to open but stop, then you can try to apply a little force in pushing the disc tray towards the open direction, it will sit properly and open up.

You can as well unscrew the disc tray and remove your disc, then you press the open button and sit the disc tray properly it will open freely and easily after then.

Take care and good luck

Philips dvdr 3480 disc draw refuses to open

This usually happens when you close the drawer with no disc in it. There is a strong magnet inside the DVD-drive that keeps the spinning disc in the correct position. But when the drive is empty, the magnet is connected to tough to its counterpart (no disc in between) and the worn out motor and/or transmission (belt) is not able to pull them apart in order to open the disc tray.

How to fix - "brute-force-attack":
Press OPEN and give the disc draw a couple of decent slaps (or snap at the tray cover with your forefinger) until it opens. Repeat procedure, if motor stops before drawer is open.

How to fix - "high-tech-approach":
Disconnect power chord. Locate the slot provided at the bottom of the device, near the smaller, left clip holding the front panel. Insert a screwdriver into it at the far right (when viewing from the front), so you can push a small white plastic-lever-thingy (can be seen thru the slot) to the far left. Now the tray is partly opened and can be pulled out completely.

Future outlook:
Don't you never ever close your old machine with no disc in the tray - or just start over again...

Disc tray won't stay closed.

I fixed this by jerking the tray gently. Someone jammed my tray and it skipped a few gear teeth. It seemed like the machine couldn't pull it in far enough to reach its preset position. So I let it close and when it was almost closed, I gently jerked it out to skip the gear teeth back into alignment. It is kind of tricky because the motor will just reverse instead of skipping teeth (you'll hear the plastic clicking when it skips). Perhaps unplug it and slowly push it in manually then **** it back out softly. Just be gentle. Good luck.
