I have had the same problem. There is a rubber ban that acts as a drive belt to open and close the disc loader. i took the cover off and then the disc loader cover off to expose the bubber ban. Then i replaced it using two rubber bans from my daughter's braces and reassembled. Works great again.

I just did this fix as well and it worked great. To take it apart, remove the 7 screws from the outer cover (3 in the back, 2 on each side). Then slide the cover back and lift it away. If you can get the tray to open partially, you won't need to remove the disc loader. Press the DVD eject button and then "assist" the tray to a half-open position. Through the center of the tray, you will now be able to see the rubber band running between two wheels at the front of the drive. If the rubber band is the problem, it will either be broken or hardened. Remove the old one and carefully mount a replacement rubber band on the two wheels. Make sure it has a decent amount of tension on it when it is in place. Then try the eject button again. The tray should now open and close smoothly. Reattach the outer cover and you should be ready to go!

Tray won't close fully then pops open again what needs to be done.


Hello
Its loading mechanism has the fault. It must be replaced. Check its loading belt, before replacing the loader mechanism.
Picture of the loader mechanism is given here.

CD/DVD drawer won't open so CD stuck inside :(


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It's the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don't want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn't quite finished yet.
5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you're careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa!!

Dvd is stuck


Before you remove the DVD player cover, try turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come out after the machine has rebooted.
  • Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your DVD player.
  • Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.
  • Opening a DVD player may negate the warranty. Read yours carefully before you proceed.

  • Follow these steps to remove it
    Step 1 Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  • Step 2 Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
  • Step 3 Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
  • Step 4 Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet.
  • Step 5 Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
  • Step 6 Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

    Sony DVP CX860 300 disc just keeps rotating the carousel


    I just got one of these and i notice mine does the same thing. WHat i found that helped mine is tip the unit back a little. The loader uses a little but of gravity to get the disks to roll back into the loader. If its level the wheel sometimes cant spin the disk up into the loader fully. If its tipping back a little the disk will roll back easy into the loader and load it properly.

    Also, dont forget if your playing a disk and you want to stop the unit, DONT POWER IT OFF AT THE UNIT. Power the unit off by the remote power this way it will finish its cycle and put the disk back into the proper slot.
