Disk Tray does not open. No response from OPEN/CLOSE button on remote, or from button on unit. Is there anything I can try to get it working? It worked beautifully until this malfunction.


The CD/DVD drawer is the most prone to failure, take one apart and look how many small parts there are in the mechanism. Best to just buy a new one.

Samsung blu ray player, dvd drawer will not open


Either the loading belt or loading gear wheels have the trouble. Sometimes the disc loading mechanism might need replacement. It won't cost mor for the mechanism. But will feel some difficulty in getting it from open electronic spare part market. it will be best to contact the authorised service center for Samsung to get it repaired.

I have a OPPO DV-980H DVD player and the drawer won't open. Is there a mechanical release or some other solution?


You would have to open the unit to inspect and see if something is jammed in the mechanism--failing there if it is not an expensive unit--cheaper to just replace as I now see units selling for as little as 20 dollars.

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

Our Oppo blu-ray player is make a strange noise and sometimes it won't open, close or turn off....we bought it on January 10, 2010 so I assume it's still under warranty. Do you have a suggestion of where...


If it makes a noise when you try to open the drawer, then I would suspect the drawer mechanism is faulty. They are usually belt driven and therefore could be just a new belt needed. Or the mechanism requires oiling . If under guarantee then where did you buy it (send it back).

Dvd "drawer" will not close.


Hello,

The reason the drawer will not shut is because there is a problem on the mechanism that opens and closes the disc tray.

To fix this,

Get the appropriate screwdriver, unscrew the cover, you'll see a mechanism by the side of the opening, you'll see a rubber that controls the opening and closing of the door.

Try to replace the mechanism and it will be in good condition again.

take care

After inserting the cds,nothing happens bar a clicking sound,not the usual whir ,the cd icon shows on the screen but nothing happens


Does the drawer open and close, when you push the button.
If so, you are getting electrical power to the drive.
If not, check that power-cable is still connected to the back of the drive.

If you don't hear the drive "spin" the CD, something is wrong with the hardware -- either it's not detecting that a CD is in the tray, or the motor that spins the CD has died.

Either way, spend $40 and buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
Remove the old one, and take it to a computer-store,
so that they can match the power and data connectors on the old drive with the power and data connectors on the new drive.

Hint: if you take the whole computer to a small computer-store, they may remove/install the drive for a small fee, if you buy the new drive from them.

HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )

DVD drawer in TV/VCR/DVD combo won't open


Hi, The problem may be mechanical or electronic. If the drawer is stuck from being bent or jammed it is mechanical. If the system controlling IC circuit is defective, then it is electronic. If it is still under warranty the factory should be responsible for it. If it is not under warranty, the cost of repair is likely to be more than the price of a new dvd player! Sorry, Daniel
