How to get a dvd tray unstuck


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

It won't spin the disc when inserted. Removed top and on occasion can manually spin it and it will start


Hi,
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

On most DVDs there is a small hole under the tray where you can insert a straightened paperclip, push in and it will manually open the tray. If not if you can try GENTLY prising the tray open by inserting screwdrivers on both sides of the tray with the power off

My DVD tray does not open to insert new disc. Have power and VHS works but seems as though DVD side is non responsive. Is there a fuse or something I could repair


MAny DVD's have a manual release. If you have one look for a tiny hole near the tray. Straighten out a paper clip and insert the end of the wire into the hole. Puse and the tray should open.

DVD tray won't open


Look for a small pin hole in the front of the DVD player. Insert a pin into the hole to open the tray.
Also try right clicking the DVD icon, click 'eject', then insert the pin into the hole.
If the door only opens partially, grab it and pull it open. Then insert a blank DVD into the tray, then see if the tray will open automatically with the disk in the tray. If so, then keep a DVD in the tray at all times.

Record from VHS to DVD


i should imagine so if they are not copy protected films i.e shop ones .if they are tv films on tapes etc then it would be possible to do so.
via insert the vhs tape and insert the blank dvd in to its tray
play the vhs tape and press rec to record on to dvd .
although the manual might give a better guide to doing this .
