Question about Yamaha DV-S5450 DVD Player
Solution 1: Most likely there is a foreign mechanical object obstructing the tray mechanism. If, like me, you have kids around every corner then most likely a curious little one has pushed something in to see "just what will happen". With some luck you can solve the problem by opening up the unit (power-off, unplugging first, of course) and doing a visual inspection for what shouldn't be there (pieces of paper, coins, toothpicks, fibres, etc).
Alternative Solution 2: Sometimes what happens is that the tray loading belt slackens over the years (age, humidity, over usage) and fails to respond quickly enough. In the absence of any obvious foreign object(s) this is a likely alternative explanation. Drive-tray electronics (called SERVOS) are programmed to expect timing signals to come within well-defined intervals of time. If this does not happen (such as due to a slack belt), then the condition is registered as an error. Try replacing the belt if solution 1 does not work.
