This happens to us all the time. Here is the note I keep on how to fix it quickly:
When tray gets messed up, the drive wheel (with pegs that interlock with pegs on the tray) needs to be such that the tray slides in and out freely. Push tray all the way in. Turn on. Hope that gives a hint.
Hello the unit is out of timing now, it will have to be taken apart and retimed. You have skipped some gear tracks and the unit will not close until the Tray is realigned. Try hitting the eject button so the tray comes all the way out then pull on it gently to see if it realigns it self. When it trys to go back in it is hitting the clamper because the tray has not reached home and the clamper that gasps the disk is closing before it has a chance to return home.
1) The tray is not completely in the loaded position and the "clamper" is rubbing. Replace the loading belt and the loading sequence will complete and the noise should stop.
2) The "CD table" that is part of the spindle motor assembly has slipped a bit. This will make the CD/DVD ride too low and strike the lower tray support. This will require that the table be "re-aligned" to the proper height which may not be possible on your model without special measurement equipment. The height is critical to proper operation of the unit.
Try replacing the load belt first and report your results.
the magic eye on the door opener in been obtruated by something .. like a small object stuck on a cd or someone might just open the door and let something in it .. stuck on the slidetrack ..and interfer with the sensor .. maybe kids???
Solution for Pioneer DV-C36 Multi Disk DVD player - tray door will not stay open.
My player would open the disk tray when the open button was press but when the tray was fully open it would retract back into the unit leaving no time to change or load disks. I found a poor connection at the ribbon cable connector was causing this problem. A seven conductor ribbon cable connects the main unit with the travelling tray. A position switch (S21) senses when the tray is fully extended and retracted. On my player pin 1 of the ribbon cable connector on the travelling tray was not making an electrical connection which causes the control system to retract the tray. The fault lies in the connector - the tang was not pressing against the ribbon cable conductor. I was able to desolder the connector and pull the contact out just far enough to reform the tang with fine needle nose pliers. This is very tedious and required an eye loupe for magnification. Tools required: #1 and #2 phillips screwdrivers Soldering and desoldering irons (or other desoldering tools) Fine needle nose pliers.
Remove the tray ribbon cable 1. Remove the cabinet cover - 6 screws. Open the tray. To keep the tray from retracting pull the power cord when the tray is extended. 2. Remove the front bezel from the tray. Gently pry up the bezel by relesing the catches with a small screwdriver. Allow the tray to retract. 3. Remove the front panel - undo large ribbon and wire connections on right, remove screws left and right, release two catch tangs on bottom edge using a small screwdriver on the inside of the unit. 4. Remove the white plastic cover over the laser mechanism ( 2 screws) Remove the disk carrier by removing the center screw. 5. Extend the tray again. When the tray is out the small ribbon cable is visible below the tray. Undo the ribon cable where it attaches to the main unit unit. 6. To slide the tray off the main unit use a small screwdriver to depress the stop catches (2) in the tray. They are molded into the tray. Pull the tray out further then lift up. 7. Flip over the tray and find the small circuit board the ribbon cable goes to. Desolder the motor wires (red and black) and remove the 2 screws holding the circuit board and position switch.
Use a multimeter to confirm there is an open or poor connection in the ribbon cable connector.
Remove the ribon cable and inspect the connector with an eye loupe or other magnification device. On my player contact #1 was not positioned properly to press against the ribbon cable conductor. You can either replace the connector or repair it. Warning: repairing the connector may damage it. To repair the contact desolder the connector from the circuit board. Bend the circuit board prong straight and push it into the body of the connector which will extend the contact out and the contact can be reformed. Be very gentle. Bending the contact may cause it to break.
Reassembly is the reverse. Don't forget to solder the motor wires with the proper polarity. Red and Black are labeled on the circuit board.
