Question about Memorex MVDR2100 DVD Recorder

Open Question

MVDR2012 will not load disc and auto ejects (tray out) all dvd discs

Machine was working properly for three months and four days and now disc tray auto opens automatically and of course dvds will not load. I tried microprocessor reset as recommended in accompanying manual i.e. power off dvd unit, wait at least one minute, insert dvd in tray, power on unit. Tray closes then automatically opens - cannot get tray to stay closed and of course will not load disc. Thank you! Jim (Jpepoon@aol.com)

Most likely one or more capacitors on the main board went bad. I just fixed one last night with the exact symptom.

SOURCE: dvd slider door won't close.

Hi, is it fully open, or just partially open?
Is it nearly shut but just jammed? If so have you tried inserting a flat peice of plastic and pulling the draw open. You could do this with no power to the dvd player, It might be that you haven't inserted the disc properly and it is wedged in.

Try all this and see how you get on.

Lenovo Z570 Disc tray is stuck -outside of laptop


Open the try slightly, shut down the machine, tilt the machine to the side of the DVD/CD drive a gently shake to loosen the tray or whatever is causing the problem, Is the disk off the spindle? Is the dvd/cd broken? Can you insert something to clear whatever is obstructing it? Have you tried to eject using the software, Go to computer, right click DVD/CD rom drive, click on eject? Has there been any damage to that area, bent..etc? You may have to force it open or remove the drive and try to open it.

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.


Hello
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.


Hello
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

Pioneer DVD 717 - Not Loading Discs Whenever I load a disc, the player spins the disc for a moment before slowing down. to a stop. It repeats this around four times in succession before it then opens...


Hi msaslloyd ,


This could be because of a damaged lens , where the dvd player tries to recognize the disc but is unable to do so and then either sends the disc back i.e. the tray opens up or the message no disc loaded is displayed.

I suggest you to :-

  1. Clean the lens with a lens cleaner available in the market and load any disc in the player to check if it's working fine.
  2. Get the lens replaced from the market and the problem should be solved.
Hope this helps ..:)

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B


*Tangent* After scouring the web looking for a solution to this problem, and I bet you this must be the case and problem for many an optical drive owner, regardless of brand or function (CD-ROM, DVD ROM, CD Writer, DVD Writer, Combo CD Writer / DVD ROM) but after busting my head trying to find the solution, some clever thinking solved the problem, where published articles on the web did not:

LG DVD Writer (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B) no longer recognizes discs and no longer burns DVDs or CDs

So you have a DVD burner that, for the longest time, properly burnt discs and aided you in archiving absolutely everything that has ever been important in your life, and now, all of a sudden on a whim, the drive no longer recognizes discs (when placing a disc with data on the tray and closing it, Windows Explorer changes the label of the drive from a DVD-RAM Drive to a CD Drive and any efforts to view the contents of the disc produce the mocking-error message "Please insert a disc into drive X:" Furthermore, in Nero Xpress, Nero Burning Rom or Nero SmartStart, the screen inviting you to set burn speed, set a disc volume label, toggle MultiSession Disc or toggle Finalize Disc has a nice bright lit illuminated "Burn" label button inviting you to proceed, but any attempts to place a blank CD-R / DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, whatever, into the disc tray and closing it fades out the "Burn" button and never illuminates it again unless the disc in the drive is ejected. This, of course, is irregardless of the disc access light blinking its friendly green accessing-goodness-message and coming to a stop as if everything was peachy upon first closing the disc tray.)

*Tangent* The few times this had occurred to me in the past (with completely different computers and computer configurations save the same DVD Burner drive) I would often start disabling and enabling drives in Windows Device Manager, and if that didn't work, deleting drive drivers in Windows Device Manager followed by rebooting and auto-reinstalling, and if that didn't work, disabling drives in the system's BIOS, and if that didn't work, fiddling with the power supply power leads and IDE interface ribbon cables and jumper settings (from master to slave to cable select) until finally the damn thing would kick in and start operating again. This time around though, nothing was working out. It had been two days of fiddling and the damn drive would not come back to me. I had even undone all the bindings of my drives in my PC case and tried the unit in other machines with the same result, and also tried it in a true MS-DOS environment using a CD ROM driver and MSCDEX with the same result. What this indicated to me was that, contrary to what many of the articles say online, that the problem is not software based like many would lead you to believe, but rather hardware based.

I read so many suggestions and not one of them sounded reasonable, considering that the drive had given me years and volumes of successful burns prior and I had already miraculously brought it back to life before: I was suggested everything from flashing the drive's CMOS to deleting lines in the system registry (regedit) to deleting and installing new ATAPI drivers to installing VERY suspect and dodgy executables that would miraculously fix things, to using different burn programs, to changing IDE Interface Ribbon Cables to changing entire power supplies, and my most hated suggestion of all, "the drive must be broken, but drive's are cheap these days anyway, just buy a new one." FOOLS! After careful elimination of possible causes, I ruled out anything that was software, operating system, or BIOS-slash-motherboard based. Sadly, unlike my pop, I know next to nothing about electronics, so my last hope was that it was a mechanical problem. Since the drive not being able to access standard discs with data on it was a clear indication of the problem, I booted in a MS-DOS environment using a Windows 98 Boot Disk, complete with CD-ROM support (these little f'ers are trusty when you get into trouble.) I called up the drive letter for my quote-unquote defective DVD Writer, placed the data disc in the drive, closed the tray, ran a simple DIR command and waited for the "device not ready" message. Once that came up (as expected), I ejected the disc tray, walked to my Grand Mother's sewing room, got a good ol sewing pin (no doubt created before the concept of home computers were even fathomable) closed the disc tray once again, ran the DIR command again, but this time, while the disc was trying to be accessed, I pushed the pin into the little emergency tray release hole, forcing the tray to eject just enough to grab onto with my fingernails. I then simply pressed the standard electronic disc eject button again, invoking a close of the tray, and low and behold, the directory contents of the disc came up. I didn't even have to run additional tests, I knew right then and there that the problem was a mechanical one with the closing of the drive (perhaps the gears were no longer coming into the proper position to place the motor hub onto the hole of the disc or the laser eye became stuck in a position that did not favour starting on the first track of the disc...who knows) Bottom line is, the thing now works as it always did, as intended.

QUICK SET OF STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
Pre-Requisits: Authentically pressed data disc that you do not care if it gets damaged (like an old outdated driver disc, AOL access disc, etc.) and a pin long and thin enough to get significant travel into the emergency release eject hole located below the disc tray (safety pins are a good choice, while thumbtacks and nails are not.)
1 - Boot PC with no disc in the troublesome drive
2 - Within operating system environment, open disc tray, place useless data disc on tray BUT DO NOT CLOSE TRAY
3 - Access a read function of the troublesome drive (in MS-DOS, navigate to the drive letter assigned, close tray with disc and type DIR or in Windows, double click My Computer, double click the troublesome drive's letter until the "please insert disc into drive X:" message comes up, and then close the tray with the disc
4 - While the disc is attempting to be accessed, in a straight manner and with pressure, push the pin into the emergency tray release eject hole until the tray pushes out physically
5 - Close the tray by means of the standard electronic eject button on the drive

Sony DVP-NC85H Multi-disc DVD Tray locked


Look on the bottom of the unit. There is a hole with the letters ex and op. Shine a light in the hole and you will see a white plastic object with a slot for a slot screwdriver. You can turn this either way but be careful. If you feel resistance and the object does not turn, turn the other direction and the unit will open. Remember if the disc loaded the clamping of the disc is in place so you must turn it the proper way to let the current disc loose hence the op and the ex. Op is open. Ex is exchange.
