RTD 209 DVD home theater system

My DVD open/close won't work.  You can hear the gears moving but something isn't catching to make it move.  Can you help me diagnose this and possible get the proper part to fix this problem.

SOURCE: I bought the RCA RTD325W DVD home theater system.

Your TV must have a set of Audio Out connections. Connect them to the Aux In on the back of the RTD325W. Then toggle the Line-In/Aux button on the remote until display reads Aux In. System should work.

DVD/CD room isn't opening. Motor runs and it's sound is very strong. Firstly "CLOSED" is shown and then "LOAD" on screen. But not achieved. Thanks for you help.

The only way to approach this is someone has to open the unit and "see" what is happening---something jammed, broken or out of position.

Panasonic dvd home theatre system SA-HT520. My 2 year old was playing with buttons on dvd player and now when i press open/close button it is saying locked and won't open, is there anything i can try...

The system has a locked / unlocked toggle sequence on the main unit by holding down stop (or Play) and then tapping the power button. Use this sequence lock or unlock the DVD / CD drawer.

I am trying to hook my home theater system to my flat screen tv to play dvd's and to hear the radio.

The TV has nothing to do with listening to the radio. All the TV REQUIRES in as a minimum is a video input from the RTD. Page 2.

Your other devices may have guidance in their manuals.

I have the rca dvd 5 dics theatre system (rtd,217a) the problem is the the 1,2,3 changer don't play. I just bought it from the store and they want to exchange it do to the fact I open it

Your problem with the store is unclear. If you just purchased it, take it back. And I urge you to dig into your pockets for something a little better, as this system is not known to be reliable or exactly high-quality.
