My unit just stopped working a few weeks ago and I am chucking it so, the unit is available for canabilizing.

I am pretty sure the DVD drive is fine since I was not using that when it died. I was listening to a football game with the TV on and using the audio through the system I think the power supply board died as nothing would work when I pushed a function button.

The remote works fine too so that is available as well as the manual.

I am currently using the existing speakers with a replacement unit, which is under warranty and I am burning in right now at near max volume.

I will be willing to send DVD player as it can be easily be removed from the unit if you want to pay shipping costs.

I bought a Zenith unit on black Friday from Circuit City for $79 with free shipping so I figured it would be as cost effective as trying to repair the RCA unit, plus I have a backup set of speakers.

Now I am looking for another low wattage 5.1 system to use in my retirement home in FL, since I have a spare set of speakers.

Is there an easy fix to the problem given in the details section below?


No there will not be a easy fix for this. You can keep putting up with this the way you have been or buy a new receiver and try to sell this one on craigslist, eBay, etc.

Lenovo Z570 Disc tray is stuck -outside of laptop


Open the try slightly, shut down the machine, tilt the machine to the side of the DVD/CD drive a gently shake to loosen the tray or whatever is causing the problem, Is the disk off the spindle? Is the dvd/cd broken? Can you insert something to clear whatever is obstructing it? Have you tried to eject using the software, Go to computer, right click DVD/CD rom drive, click on eject? Has there been any damage to that area, bent..etc? You may have to force it open or remove the drive and try to open it.

Tray stuck in out position and husing as Audio amplifier


If your system has an Aux input on the back then you can use it as an amplifier, and use the speakers you already have. I hope this gives you some ideas.

The tray is stuck open and will not retract. Unit appears to think it is closed but will not pull disk tray in.


This was a common problem for Toshiba sets a while ago, but was fixed by an engineering change. What is the make and model of your unit? With the power off, try to push in the tray a little bit (DO NOT FORCE IT!!) With the tray partially in, plug in the set and turn it on. The tray should close. If not or if the tray opens fully, then there is a problem with the position switches inside the set. These are small leaf switches that can get dirty or break. On a power up, the tray should retract to the "loaded" position.

Please update this with more details.

Thanks,
Dan

DVD tray will not go in


To verify there is nothing stuck in your drive, turn off your computer and try manually pushing the tray in GENTLY and feel if there is something blocking the tray moving. If there is nothing preventing the tray from moving manually push the tray in - start your computer and try it again. Use the eject function in windows explorer and try the retract button again. If teh button will not work try pushing the tray in manually again. Once the tray starts moving in it should automatically retract the rest of the way. If the unit will not retract on it's own by either method then the drive should be replaced.

Pull out the tray with paper.
You should find a moving plastic "tongue" near the middle of width in the area where your paper tray should go. It's a contact based flag for the device to consider how much paper is in the tray. Check if it's not broken or stuck in odd position. Move it back and forth several times, with no force, it goes very easily. When you lift the flag up, see message and blinking led stop appearing. Try to pull paper tray back in, add paper if error appears again. Enjoy!

The cd door is stuck - i cant open the door or close it, help? Tray does not open when switch is depressed. Green light burns steady.

First, you'll need a paperclip. Unfold it so there is 1 to 2 inches that is straight.

Now, look closely at your drive door. There should be a very small pinhole either above or below it.

Insert the paperclip. There is a very small gear that when rotated, will manually open the drive door.

Retract and reinsert the paper clip as many times as it takes to eject the drive enough so you can hold onto it.
Pull Out the CD or DVD Drive.

Now slowly pull the drive out until it is fully retracted. Remove your stuck CD or DVD, and slowly push the drive bay back until the door is closed.
