If you aren't concerned about the reader you can take out the drive and deconstruct it to recover the disk. If the drive is damaged, you might want to avoid constantly hitting the eject button as it will try to move the tray and potentially cause more damage to the dvd.

Why is my Sony bdvn790 stuck on bd/DVD and the front light flashes


I am having the same issue. From what I can tell (at least in my case), there was a disc stuck in the DVD drive. I had to dismantle the chassis, remove the drive and manually "eject" the disc. There is a manual screw port under the BD/DVD drive that you turn and it will manually eject the disc. However, removing the disc from the drive did not solve my problem. I am still getting the BD/DVD displayed when powering the system back on and the light is flashing as you described.

DVD player not responding. DVD stuck in player.


Possible failure of the loading or the disc loading mechanism. This needs to be checked only after you open the player and check for a possible mechanical jamming within the player. If so the disc could have stuck inside. broken or maybe with a foreign object.
If not manually turn to confirm on the motor drive to ensure that the DVD loads and returns. If this seems Ok then the motor or the motor drive circuit/IC needs a check.

The DVD drawer will not open unless a disc is in the drive. When the drawer would not open I took the cover off the player. The DRC8295N is a VCR-DVD/R RW player recorder. The DVD drive will record on...


The problem isn't with the motor being too weak, but the belt which the motor drives. I had the EXACT problem just as you described. What I did was I took off the belt and cleaned it with rubbing alcohol because apparently the belt picked up some of the grease from the gears and wouldn't rotate when the motor spinned. This belt actually pulls down the mechanism, on which the CD sits, from the magnet. So, just clean the belt and you should be good to go. If the belt is very loose, you might need to replace it.

My wii makes loud noises and when i turn the game on it says to eject disc turn off wii and look at the manuel. Sometimes the game will load but will shut off during and says disc can not be read. How can...


Sounds like something is stuck inside of your Wii's DVD Drive... someone may have stuck something in the slot? Coins? credit card? paper? Etc... sounds like this is preventing the disc from being read properly. Either this, or something inside of the drive has become broken.

The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Label stuck in dvd drive


What Kind of Label? How did it get stuck inside this Drive?
Has the Label caught on the Bottom or the top of the Drive?
Did you try to write to the Label with the Drive?
If it is a small centre of the disc label and is stuck on the upper steady Hub then the drive to needs to be opened, not just the Drive case but the lid of the actual drive. If there is only one screw in the casing then it may slide or clip together, Check that none of the Labels are hiding Screw holes...(Often Done) Then look for small holes/slots in the side of the Casing where one might slip a thin Blade or Screw driver, this may unclip plastic Side clips... If that fails, send me some pics of the case and I'll see what I can do to sort the Method... Hope this helps. C
