DVD Player tray Door Continues to Open

The dvd tray keeps opening. I put a disk in and close it and instead of reading the disk and letting me play it - the door opens again. The TV screen simply has the start up dvd symbol remaining on it. Please help!Bill Waterloo, Ontario

I had this problem and it turned out to be the gears on the door drive. There are two gears, one that engages the rack on the tray and one that has a slot that drives the clamping action to hold the DVD. These two gears were misaligned by one tooth. This prevented the gear with the slot from turning freely after the door was closed.
To fix it I had to take out the tray assembly, disasemble it, and reassemble it with the gears properly aligned. You need to remove the top and back of the case. Then take out two screws at the rear of the tray assembly and three screws on the circuit board attached to the tray assembly. Unplug the connections to that board. Slide out the tray assembly. Now you can pop the top off of the tray assembly by pulling out two tabs and sliding the top toward the rear. Now you can get to the gears to adjust them. The slotted gear should be able to turn freely for about 1/4 turn when the tray is closed. Make sure the pin on the clamping part is in the slot when you reassemble it.

Magnavox ZC320MW8 door stays open


f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.
God bless you

My husband always operated the DVD player. He has died and now I'm at a loss what to do. I rented a DVD at the video store. I tried to put it into the tray on the DVD player. I had to pull the tray...


Hi, Very sorry for your loss. As always the first step is to make sure the player is connected to the wall outlet and turned on. To put a disk in the DVD you should push the "Eject" button to open and close the tray it looks like a home(a triangle over a dash) on the front side of the box down left corner of the tray. You have the same button on the remote marked "Eject". Push either once, put the disk with the shiny side down on the tray and push the Eject button again to feed the tray back into the player. Usually the disk starts automatically and you will see a menu on the TV with alternatives like "Play the movie", "Setup", "Scenes",... you may highlight the "Play the movie" alternative, using "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" and then press the "OK" button. Or just push the "Play" button either on the box or the remote control. If you click "Here "you can download the manual in PDF form. To open it in your pc you'll need "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (or any other PDF reader) installed.
I will gladly answer your questions Best Regards Bruce

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt

Dvd will not eject from jvc hr xvc27u dvd player all it will do is display the word read on the screen


elsombro is right. There is a little whitish plastic square on the right side of the player, part of the DVD assembly (after you take off the cover). It's about 1/4 inch square. With the unit turned on, push that square with a pen about 3/4 of an inch in or as far as it will go. There will be a clunking sound but that is the sound of the DVD being released back onto the tray. Now gently push the back of the tray forward, ejecting the disk manually. Take the disk out and then press the close button. If the door doesn't close, it's out too far so manually push it in about an inch or so and then press the close button again. Should be fine after that. I think my problem was a DVD I recorded on my computer and it has the wrong format or something. After I got it out I put a regular DVD back in and everything was fine.

Open/Close tray message


This means that you need your DVD drive replaced. If you are under your 1 year warranty from MS go to www.xbox.com/support and fill out a repair request. If you are out of warranty make sure that you only let an experienced professional perform this repair. If you do the repair on your own, or have someone that doesn't know what they are doing do it then it's very likely your Xbox will never play games again. There is vital information on the old DVD drive that must be extracted and put into the replacement in order for your 360 to allow it to play games. I can do this repair for you if you'd like. Email me at Jordan@jordanselectronics.com for more info.

I HAVE COMBINATION TV/VCR/DVD ON THE COVER OF MANUAL STATES MW20F


Most DVD players have a flap then the tray pushes open when it comes out. What you should do (if its already broken anyway) is, using your fingernails, pull open the flap (if there is one) and then pull out the tray manually. Pop the disk in and let it close, or just push it yourself. PUlling the tray should not damage any internal components except for the gears that move the tray, which are not related to the disk reader, power converter, or anything else.

E1 (rear) error. DVD tray will not open.


there might be a possibility that as soon as the tray closed the dvd shifted inside the machine. the dvd is stuck yes which means that the tray wont open because the dvd is blocking the gear turning. if so you are going to have to take it to your Dealership to open up the player and remove the disk. you can try it yourself but it's not recommended. tray gears will have to be tested to see if the tray will open once the disk is out though
