My problem is the tray will not open. what I found when I opened the case was the arm that comes up to engage the media was very sticky. there is a ring that is glued on to the arm and the ring was very sticky. what was happening is the media was stuck to the arm and therefore the tray could not come out of the unit. when I pulled the media off of that arm, then the tray opened with no problem. I used some alcohol and q-tip to clean the sticky off of the ring and the media. so far the unit is working other then that problem.
I think that it is a heat problem that caused the sticky to ooze thru the ring and onto the media.
I was wondering if anyone experienced this problem.
Actually the ring is like a mylar ring that is glue onto the hub. it seems that the sticky that holds the ring on has gotten on the top of the ring and is sticking to the media or to the top assembly that the media is pressed onto to spin
The ring if I understand right is the hub that's pressed on the motor shaft. The solution is to replace the hub/motor assembly because of it's very critical distance of the hub on the motor shaft it's best with the factory replacement complete like that.

Disc have something sticky attached on top (label ,specially rental discs') so when you try to eject disc get stuck on tray of spindle motor.Top cover need to be opened in that case in order to remove disc
Possible that the mechanism is faulty , the loading motor is faulty or the loading control drive is faulty.
It will be good to open the unit and check the mechanism for any jamming of the drive. make sure the motor gets supply when eject is pressed if not the loading motor control drive IC is faulty provided the mP is giving in the drive voltage to its input pins.
Check to see if anythig is blocking the tray from opening. Also the tray motor or connections may be failing. I would open the case, remove and replace as many connections, one at a time, to make sure the connections were good. If the tray still does not move, then one or more than one component has failed. It could be an electronic component or the motor.
There are a few solutions: 1. hit it ok just kidding
make sure when you are trying to open it does not say "disc Lock" or some sort. You can solve this problem by hitting the device menu and typing in 2005
2. Open up the device by unscrewing the six case bolts and then the 4 dvd section screws. After this I had the problem where my dvd was stuck in the play mode so the tools would just not let go. I had to gently wiggle them apart however be very careful. I have also heard that it might be a tired arm on the side that just needs some coaxing. HOpe this helps
This is due to the mechanics inside the DVD-RW being out of place. If you open the DVD-RW (take both the top and bottom cover off and take the CD tray out) you will see the white plastic guide that guides 2 arms as the laser mechanism lowers and raises. One of these 2 arms is out of place and need to be pushed back in. Also, check for a crack in the black plastic on the arms....this usually causes the arms to slip out of place. If a crack is found, simply super glue it tigether.
Hello bettysgarage. A common malfunction in DVD players. The mechanics has a bad part or something is jamed in the rails, arms, lifts, ect. I suggest you unpluge the AC, remove the case screws(note witch screw went were), and look internaly for something in the mechanics, thread, paper, loose paper clip, ect. Carefully postion unit and reconnect the AC so you may see the action of the disk tray in motion. Please be careful you have AC power and can get SHOCKED if you touch the circuit or wire terminals. When no object is found you have a bad DVD that would require a local service technican to repair unless you are technically inclined to vinture futher. Good Luck.
The tray is either broken, or off track. You may be able to get it back on track by opening the cover and checking it out, but unplug it first, and only try this if warrantee is over and you're feeling brave...
The DV-S5450 may use a belt-loading mechanism. The belt is typically black rubber band with a diameter of approximately 2 cm. It is commonly found in front-loading CDROMs for computers also. Often, as a result of age, usage, humidity, etc the belt snaps, rendering the loading impossible. The loading motor doesn't just pop the tray in or out. It also engages a clutch assembly that raises an inserted disk or lowers a disk to be ejected; this explains why you can't simply force out the tray. Clearly in your case all the electronic signals are there and the loading motor does turn.
Solution: switch off and unplug the unit and then open it up. Do a quick inspection to see if you can locate the broken rubber band. If you can, remove it and take it along with you to the nearest repair shop for exact replacement. If you are finicky around technical work, simply a competent person do it for you. Good luck.
My ILO was doing the same thing, then it stopped doing it. It then suddenly would not recognize any media. I opened up the case and found it is using a dvd lite-on recorder. I had this old pc laying around with a gigabyte dvd recorder in it. For a test, I unplugged the lite-on and plugged in the gigabyte recorder. On power up, it seemed to work fine. After recording 3 DVD's I modified the case to accept the hew recorder. ** problems since, its not pretty, but it was easy to get the unit functional again.
I am pursuing the exact problem above. I have found a not so hi tech solution. I firmly rap on the top above the disc drawer. This is while Close is being displayed and the drawer is in. If you hear some spinning and load displays it should now work. It may be back to cycling again on the next ejection though. Technically I figure it may be a sticky magnetic reed switch or what ever they use to detect the drawer position. Mine displays either open or close when it starts to cycle.
