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 (

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.

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

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.

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.
