Hi

Kindly take a paper clip or a pin and insert it on both sides of the tray when its switched off ,then push the pins inside and try to open it . It will open and then check for any obstacles jamming the tray.

Belt is loose or gear is broke, if out of warranty you can try to force it or open the cover and see if you can push the door.

I have a 6 year old Panasonic DMR-50 and recently it has been displaying No Read on the faceplate and not compatible disk on the screen. I have tried both the Maxell and Memorex -R Dvd's and they both...


I found the problem and it was not a disk problem, instead it was a mechanical problem.

.Before you start taking the unit apart open the disk tray and unplug the unit, as the tray needs to be out of the way.

You need to take the unit apart to gain access to the top side of the disk mechanism. To do this remove the 3 phillips screws on the top back of the cabinet, on the side of the cabinet there should be 1 larger phillips screw on each side. Once you remove the screws you will have to work the top off as it can be tight. Once you have done this remove the face plate which is held be 3 plastic clips on the bottom and one on each side. When you have these released slowly pull the face plate towards you till it comes loose, on my unit all the connections are made with multi pin connectors that remain in place on the chassis and faceplate circuit board.Next you have to remove 4 small phillips screws from the top of the disk area. Once inside you should see a 2 piece plastic disk that has a small magnet in the middle and is on a flexible piece of metal that is underneath a piece of bent metal to limit its upward travel. If this plastic disk is loose carefully snap it back together by holding one finger underneath applying pressure with your other hand from the top. Check to make certain it turns freely and push down slightly on the metal to make sure it moves up and down. If it does now is the time to look inside with a flashlight and locate the laser lens, as this is the perfect time to clean it as suggested by someone on this board. Now put everything back together and unless there is a further problem in the unit you should be back in business.

This tip was given to me by a technician for Hewlett Packard who I was chatting with while traveling to the San Francisco area by train several days ago.

The disk tray won't open. this is brand


Just got mine out this morning. Googled this for two days with no success! Finally, out of despiration I took the screwdriver to the top cover. (four screws in the back, and two screws on each side) Lifted up the rear section of the cover which the released the front for removal. The input pc board is right on top of the dvd tray so little could be seen, so I removed the screws and clips holding the pc board. Make sure that you you disconnect the power before doing this however. Once you have removed the three screws, (two of which have attached grounding clips) you will need to disconnect the HDMI cable which plugs into the back of the board if you had not already done so. Now carefully plug the unit back into ac power, and while holding the board in your hand careful not to allow it to touch anything,press the open button on the front of the unit, and as you move the board slightly while pressing the button, the tray mechanism will start to try to release. Press the button several times till the tray opens completely and stops. Now comes the tricky part: Unplug the AC power plug while the tray remains open. (Otherwise the tray may close again and you'll have to go through the wiggle routine again to get it to open) Once it is open, remove the DVD Disk if there is one in there. OK, so now if you have followed these instructions so far the tray is open and empty, and there is no power to the unit, you can begin reassembly. Put the three screws and two clips back into the PC board loosely at first till you have all three started, then proceed to tighten each one. Replug the cable into the back of the PC board and then replace the top cover and the screws following the same procedure. Plug the unit back into the AC receptacle, and turn the unit on, then press the open/close button, and the tray should open and close as normal. I think what caused the problem to begin with is that I had left a DVD disc in the player for an extended period of time in the start play mode, and it either jumbled the programming or damaged the disc. I have not tried to put the original disk back in the unit to find out! I want to use it for awhile first! PS I would also suggest that onec you have it working, you might want to blow out the tray mechanism with an air cleaner spray.

Samsung DVD-VR330: Disk Tray won't open


The solution is to unplug the machine and wait 10 secs. and plug it in again. I have to do this often. another part of the problem may be that some of the blank disks are bad. I got the DVD+R at Staples and about 4 out of 10 were able to be formatted. I am about to try the DVD-RWs.

Disc Tray will not open


DVD door is opened by a small pulley-belt system. Disconnect the power cord and remove cover on R6740 (one screw on each side and 3 in back). Remove top cover on DVD drive (4 screws on top). Manually open door; you will see a small "O" ring sized rubber belt (they stretch and lose flexibility with time, which is why the door stops working). Remove and replace belt. I found a 11/16" X 1/16 belt at Lowe's in the plumbing dept @ 2 for $.59. Its not a perfect fit, but the door works now!
