Child pulled dvd draw out of portable tv dvd combi, how do I repair it

If the DVD tray has been pulled out completely or manually pulled out too far and it will not retract on its own then the DVD drive is damaged and needs to be replaced. Although the DVD drive itself probably is a standard drive, on TV/DVD combo units the drive is difficult to replace and should be done by a qualified service technician or by a manufacturer authorized service facility.

Try this hold button 5 sec longer. If not DVD may be jammed in player. Some players have a release pin hole near the DVD draw. You will need a long wood/plastic pin to trigger it. Do not use metal pins. (shock)...

The draw won't open

Try Plugging it in, Ensuring you have power, Tap the Top and Bottom. IT probably means your DVD is jammed in there.

If this does not work, UNPLUG it and take the cover off and manually open the Door...

Draw will not close

Look under the drawer and look for a plastic pin sticking up. This pin needs to be in the track on the bottom of the drawer for it to close and load correctly.

Rca dvd player stuck

There are a number of possibilities, jammed gears caused by a disc or gears out of time, some have a very small loading belt located under the draw in most cases, excessive ware and tare on plastic gear linkage.

Door won't open to insert dvd

The gears are jammed, the timing gear is out of sync, or a broken loading belt, or cogwheel.

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?

Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

Phillips dvd player disc draw won"t open help

Usually, there's a pin hole beneath the tray that come out. If there is a pin hole, get a paper clip or safety pin and insert the pin or clip into the pin hole and push. That should pop the disk tray out.

Why doesnt the cd/dvd stay in the VALOR player?

The dvd drive coud be jamming on something inside, or the dvd tray belt could be slipping or the disk could be jamming on something inside which is preventing the draw from sliding all the way in.

Portable dvd player not working

My children had purchased a TV for us at Christmas time along with a 2 yr service plan and I had contacted the number that was included in the service plan to register our TV and was told just to hang onto the receipt and phone the number in the service plan if we need to have anything repaired.
Hope this helps you.
