My dvr 3590 gives blocked message when i try to open the the dvd tray


That isn't a television problem, your television only presents the signal from your DVD player. The defect is in your DVD player. Often there is a little belt that opens and closes the tray for DVDs. That belt fails with time... and use. Considering the age and amount of use on your DVD player it's time to replace it.

If it's a recorder DVD than it might be best to take it to a shop. The repair is sometimes very simple and other times not worth repairing depending on the model.

DVD drive will no longer open


I went to look at getting it fixed and wit was going to cost as much as a new device, so I pulled it to bits and found that the rubber band in the DVD player was frail. This meant it didn't have enough strenght to load the disk completely.

I went to a stationary shop and brought a new one the same size and it is perfect.

Cost. 10c.

You will need to be careful and confident pulling it to bits and some of the screws are no standard. good luck.

Alternatively there is a slot under the unit that you can force the DVD mechanism open or closed. A hassle though.

Dvd player


First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

Playing a dvd


I'm having a similar issue....I load a DVD and the player goes thru the normal cycle and just when you think you here the DVD start to spin...is cycles again and ejects and closes half way then powers off? I took off the cover (like I know what I'm doing) and figured that the leverage gear which raises the laser to the turn pad thing isnt getting acctuated....? I cant figure out what makes that gear turn..there is nothing really toughing it gear or spring? anyways I'm looking for a solution myself.

"BLOCKED" message


Solution 1: Most likely there is a foreign mechanical object obstructing the tray mechanism. If, like me, you have kids around every corner then most likely a curious little one has pushed something in to see "just what will happen". With some luck you can solve the problem by opening up the unit (power-off, unplugging first, of course) and doing a visual inspection for what shouldn't be there (pieces of paper, coins, toothpicks, fibres, etc).

Alternative Solution 2: Sometimes what happens is that the tray loading belt slackens over the years (age, humidity, over usage) and fails to respond quickly enough. In the absence of any obvious foreign object(s) this is a likely alternative explanation. Drive-tray electronics (called SERVOS) are programmed to expect timing signals to come within well-defined intervals of time. If this does not happen (such as due to a slack belt), then the condition is registered as an error. Try replacing the belt if solution 1 does not work.
