Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR player won't eject DVD

I have a Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR unit. The DVD tray eject/close mechanism does not work. I was able to eject the tray by sticking a pin in the hole on the bezel faceplate. I can then manually push the DVD tray in or out. There is nothing stuck in the DVD drive. But the remote or the button on the unit will not eject or close the tray mechanism. I have opened the cover also. And the VCR portion of the unit works just fine. If there is no easy fix to this, can I just replace the whole DVD drive with perhaps a similar or even a better one?

This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.

    To the person who asked about swapping the drive: no this won't help, the powersupply is on the main board.

I was having the same problem a few months ago. I had another vcr on top of the unit. My son told me nothing should be on to and sure unough when I took the weight off it worked just fine. Hope it works for you.

I have a PV-D734S Panasonic VCR/ DVD combo. The dvd unit screeches when I push open. What do I do next


someone would have to open unit to see what is happening--sounds like a mechanism problem and parts for the DVD portion are rarely sold (if the mechanism is damaged or out of alignment only the whole DVD part of the unit may be available) This is my real issue with combo units--one half fails and usually not worth fixing.

Another clear option is to either pay a fee and have it looked at by a shop or just buy and hook an external player up to it if it has the input jacks.

Try resetting the unit. Push and hold the on/off button for 10+ seconds. --or-- Look for a reset button behind the drop down door, and gently depress it with a pen point for a couple of seconds. If this does not work, try calling Panasonic.
