SOURCE: Drawer won't open. Says "blocked".

I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover

2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.

4. remove the two top screws on the DVD unit
5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near the front.

6. Now remove the tray, by pulling it out as far as it goes and then pressing two tabs on either side of the tray. These tabs look like this:

7. Now you get at the drive belt. Originally it was black; I replaced it (temporarily) with a red one in the picture below:

8. Now put everything back together.

Sony dav-hdx265- disc is stuck- door will not open


According to the Sony manual, a C-31 error code indicates that the disc is not inserted correctly. Their recommended fix is to restart the system and re-insert the disc correctly. That just leaves the problem of getting the disc out, right? If eject doesn't work, you may have to open the disk drawer manually. With single-disc systems this is fairly simple: there is always a small pinhole near the disc drawer, usually just below the right side of the drawer. Straighten a paper clip and stick it into the hole until the latch releases, then remove the disc and close the drawer. All should be fine from there on. I do not know if multi-disc systems have the same sort of release but that is where I would start.

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Hello,

Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

Kenwood dv-505 door will not open


THERE IS AN EMERGENCY OPEN OPTION ON MOST ALL DISK DRIVES, LOOK RIGHT BELOW THE DRAWER USUALLY TO THE RIGHT FOR A SMALL PINHOLE. GET A PAPER CLIP AND STRAIGHTEN ONE END OUT, INSERT STRAIGHT INTO HOLE UINTIL YOU FEEL IT STOP AT THE MANUAL RELEASE CATCH AND GENTLY PRESS UNTIL YOU HEAR THE DRAWER BEGIN TO OPEN.
BLOW ANY DUST OUT, AND CHECK THE PC AND DRIVE WEBSITE FOR A POSSIBLE FLASH UPDATE FOR YOUR DRIVE MODEL. THEY ARE OFTEN POSTED WHEN DRIVES SHOW PROBLEMS READING SOME OF THE NEWER DISK BEING MADE. THIS HAS WORKED FOR ME A FEW TIMES IN THE PAST.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

Sony drive how do you insert disc?


No such thing as a stupid question! There will be some type of button beside the drive drawer. If not, click on my computer, right click on dvd/cd drive, could be called drive E but that is different for different machines. Select eject. The drive drawer will open so you can put the disk in.
