Re: Stuck disc (similar problem)
In the front of the tray there a small whole, try bending a paperclip straight with a small hook at the end and careully stivk it in that whole. Than gently try pulling it back thus opening the tray. Remove your disc and do not put any other disc in it but try to close the tray by using the button. If it closes, try to reopen it.
Check your disc for any dirt or perhaps some remains of stickers. Be carefull with homemade discs, they might have a stickered label on it which can cause problems such as getting your tray stuck and not opening anymore ;-) .

According to the Sony manual, a C-31 error code indicates that the disc is not inserted correctly. Their recommended fix is to restart the system and re-insert the disc correctly. That just leaves the problem of getting the disc out, right? If eject doesn't work, you may have to open the disk drawer manually. With single-disc systems this is fairly simple: there is always a small pinhole near the disc drawer, usually just below the right side of the drawer. Straighten a paper clip and stick it into the hole until the latch releases, then remove the disc and close the drawer. All should be fine from there on. I do not know if multi-disc systems have the same sort of release but that is where I would start.
Press the surround button and change the surround mode to Dolby Prologic Music or Movies.Since there are only 2 channels in your MP3 disc and music cd the systems default setting is stereo. Use your DSP ( Digital Sound Processing ) function to create 5.1 from 2 channel source.
Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.
you can try gently to get the disc,s towards the front of the player by turning it upside down ,then you can also try pluging it in and trying to gently pry the door open with the assist of the open button , if that does not work within a reasonalble amount of time you cac also take the casing off and reve the dvd,s that way ,just lay out the parts in order so you remember where they came from , hope i was able to help you , it happened to me already and once i had no choice but to take it appart and another time i was able to get them back into the vicinity of the inside tray and was able to open it that way , either way you choosae good luck and thank you for letting me hopefully help you Sincerely Glenn mayer
You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.
I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.
I have a Panasonic HT80 dvd system which plays 5 discs, bought in 2000.
If u have the same or similar he way to get the sound through the recorder is to put the audio output phono leads from the tv to the back of the dvd. On the remote (on mine) there is a button for dvd/tv/ext, oput this to tv it should allow the sound to be transferred from the tv set.
you should never use a disc thats scratched inside yiour machine its most likely your dvd machine is having trouble reading your media the best way to solve this is to unplug your machine wait turn it back on keep pressing eject
it should eject dont use that dvd disc again
hope this solves your problem
did for me
are you using discs with labels that you out on your self? I had a similar problem before and my label peeled off in the player causing it to get stuck., you might just have to take it apart, and get the label out.
