Question about Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder/VCR

Machine doesn't work intermittantly

Our machine was working fine but suddenly will not. When we turn it on, it will not open the dvd tray to take out the dvd that is in it. It will not switch over to vcr mode. Does anyone have a suggestion for what to do?

    We cannot get the dvd tray to open. It just sits there blinking the word "open" and doesn't do anything. Can't find anything in the manual about manually opening it. There doesn't appear to be a pin hole either. Tried unplugging etc. Remote won't do it either.

Ok this is prissymomof4 and I wanted to tell brewer 264 how we got ours to open finally. I will tell you exactly what we did and what we think fixed it. First we unhooked it completely from the tv and plugged it in at another location. I don't think that fixed it though because it was still hung even after we did that. Then we got the remote and we hit random keys on the remote. Something we hit finally broke it out of its funk. Once we got it unhung it opened and seems to be playing fine now. I hope this helps you too.

Doesn't load the disk


Someone needs to open it to SEE what is happening--if the unit holds more than one disc (model seems to indicate that) you likely have a mechanism problem with something jammed or even broken--mechanism could also be out of alignment which is a task for a pro.

Look and see what is happening is first thing needed here.

Phillips hts3105 tray does not open or not sound


Simple task first,

Check to see if any power to the player.

If so, unplug, leave overnight and see if it re boots just like a PC when you plug it in.

You can also try some elctronic switch cleaner spary(available from good electronic shops) spary into the draw it may free up the release mechanism dont worry wont damage machine.

LAST OPTION...BE CAREFUL !!!!!! Turn on machine, gently put a small flat end screwdriver blade into slot at top of draw and press open on remote and gently try to ease it oopen DO NOT force it. If this is going to work should not take much prssure at all. If it does not work, perhaps new machine time but they are very cheap these days.

Dvd recorder turns off after 25 sec of recording. plays dvds just fine. what could be wrong?


hello,
read one of the other 'fixits' and applied it to my situation. i opened tray, turned off the machine, then pushed the tray half way in. used air and completely blew out the unit. (as well as can be expected w/o opening.) it now works.
it was very weird. it would shut off exactly 25 seconds after starting recording every time, at least 10 times. another weird thing was that it played dvds just fine.
thanks for help,

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

Disc tray won't stay closed.


I fixed this by jerking the tray gently. Someone jammed my tray and it skipped a few gear teeth. It seemed like the machine couldn't pull it in far enough to reach its preset position. So I let it close and when it was almost closed, I gently jerked it out to skip the gear teeth back into alignment. It is kind of tricky because the motor will just reverse instead of skipping teeth (you'll hear the plastic clicking when it skips). Perhaps unplug it and slowly push it in manually then **** it back out softly. Just be gentle. Good luck.

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!

My Samsung BD-P1400 is frozen on "load" and disc tray won't open


My player worked fine couple of days ago, then last night when powered up, message was "load" and it stayed like this forever, and tray open would not work. Tried everything, nothing worked. Left unplugged from power for 24 hrs and bingo everything worked as should. I suspect that the unit is still trying to load info from last disc which I stopped in the middle of some bonus material, even though the disc was no longer in the tray.

DVD loading mechanism doesn't load completely that's why opens after attempt of loading.
You need to open top cover of unit and inspect loading belt might be lose, tray timing can be out of phase, some wire got stuck with tray while loading etc.

Toshiba sd-4205 5-dvd carousel changer declares mecha error during startup, will not eject tray.


This may not work for everyone, but.....
I had the same problem with the Toshiba SD-3205. After unplugging, trying button combos, etc, nothing worked. I could here a slight whine inside the machine, and then again...."MECHA ERROR".
I turned the unit on its side to see if there was a manual tray button on the bottom. Nothing. Then just to try it, I turned the machine off and on again while on its side.
It started up, I heard a clatter, and then the display changed to "INSERT DISC". I placed it the right way up again and pressed "OPEN TRAY" and it worked!
My theroy: There was one DVD in the carousel, and I think last time the tray shut, it got wedged somehow and prevented the carousel from rotating. Turning the machine on its side and pressing "OPEN" is what dislodged the disk.
