Samsung DVD-VR330: Disk Tray won't open

The disk tray of my Samsung DVD-VR330 won't open. It flashes a status of "OPEN" but nothing happens. I can hear it spinning the DVD, but the door won't open. Is this due to a dirty lens? Any ideas how to fix/open the tray so I can get my DVD out? Thanks!

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.

Unplug.
remove cover (5 screws),
on the dvd unit remove the top assembly, releasing catches each side.
lift out disk.
Leave it unplugged a while, maybe days.
Do not force tray in or out manually.

regards.

This happens when the DVD drive is going bad. You can check with Microsoft on the status of the warranty. If you are not under warranty you can replace your DVD drive.

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.

I can't load /unload DVD disk


This could be due to one of several reasons. It may be that the tray is stuck inside the rail. OR it may that the tray drive motor be faulty. You can check by putting your finger on the tray front and pushing the open button: if there is a faint vibration then a click then this is a tray jam. If no vibration is felt then the drive motor is faulty. You state that pushing the button displays OPEN so it seems that the button is ok. Now if the tray is stuck what you can do is open the drive mechanism, check whether there is a rubber band which is involved in opening or closing. Replace that band with a new one from an electronics store. Also clean and grease the rail with alcohol. Please note that ONLY ATTEMPT it if you are familiar with opening drives and are out of warranty. If you are not easy then you'll have to go to a technician. AND if the motor is faulty this would also require soldering.
