2 disks stuck in one slot of DVD player

Hi there! My mischevious 2 year old stuck 2 disks in one slot, we fear, and now we can't get the whole thing to work. After we power off and back on again, we get a INIT error message and then get stuck on WAIT. Our guess is that it can't get beyond the dvd issue. Any thoughts? We're broke and want to fix it ourselves, if we can! THANKS!

Re: 2 disks stuck in one slot of DVD player

Remove the top by removing the screws and then you can remove the stuck/jammed discs. For the Panasonic SC-PT750 there are 7 screws, three small silver ones on the back, then 4 black ones, two on each side, all philips head. Once you have that off, gently pry it off starting from the back, the cover is actually hinged into the front plastic piece of the player.

Re: 2 disks stuck in one slot of DVD player

Looks like it will have to come apart. Can you see how? Usually the top/side casing is simply 5/6 screws 2 each side and 1/2 at the back then slide back away from the from panel. Technical help at Panasonic may be helpful.

LG HDD/DVD player - navigational error message

DVD shrink can't handle the copy protection on the disk you're trying to backup, use DVDFab decrypter first instead.
Get it here:

Use DVDFab to rip the files to your HDD, it will create a VIDEO_TSfolder and put all the video files in it. DVDFab is a whole movieripper only, so you're getting everything on the disk ripped to you'reHDD, once DVDFab is done, run DVD shrink. Use DVD shrink to open thefiles created by DVDFab (use the open files tab and browse to theVIDEO_TS folder created by DVDFab and choose it), at this point shrinkwill import the files, use shrink as you normally would to create yourbackup.

Emerson AV50 says ''NO DISK''

Hi, sounds like you have a dirty laser eye on the DVD player. The eye gets dirty and it won't read movies or function properly. I would recommend a DVD Cleaner CD. I would have you try this before I have you open the DVD Player to clean the Laser Manually. Please try this and Post the Result for me to Review. Thank you

Sony 5 disc dvd player says c 31 00

C31 usually means a motor error. In your case, it sounds more like the loading sequence is not completing. Can you please confirm that the model is the DAV-FX10 system?

CD stuck in disk tray of (original) BOSE 321

Cd stuck for good in bose 3-2-1 (first edition)

This is an Update to my above problem:
I've managed at last to pry open - with a huge scredriver - the very sturdy black metal clasp that holds down the cd-dvd driver onto the shaft. Now I could lift it up, see the small frontal hole that manually frees the disk tray. I stuck in a pin and at last it opened!!
But... Allas....
I could see that the "captivated" disk had very deep "skid" mark on its playable side, as if sometihng was carving into it. The same carving happened to a new disk I inserted, although it played and ejected normally - only with strange machnical noises. I think that some of the plastic cogwheels that turn or eject the disk got loose. I stuck them in and now it works fine, but I lost confidence in the machine - fearing it may stuck again or ruin my disks.

Used lens laser lens cleaner & now player won't play.

You can open the dvd and try to clean it the dvd so you can see the lazer.take a normal earbud and wet it with normal methylated spirits and clean the lazer gently with that.the lazer cleaners hardly ever work 100%.Just remember not to push to hard on the lazer or you will brake it.gently clean and wait for lazer to dry and try again.

Won't play

This DVD home theater system has a defect that is not being addressed by panasonic. The Optical lens and or DVD Motor will give out after 2 to 3 years for no reason. It will start saying "No Disc" and will not play any DVD or CD. To repair this it will cost you £100.00 to £135.00 to repair. An authorized panasonic repair company told me that if I repair this it will last me up to 3 years and I would have to fix the DVD Player again. The dvd player model number is SA-HT70 and the number for the system is SC-HT70. The SA-HT70 is the dvd player that is not reliable. Without warning in 2 to 3 years you will have to repair the optical lens or dvd motor which will not be covered by Panasonic.
