Question about Pioneer XVDV830/SDV830 DVD AUDIO HTP System
I have a pioneer xvdv77 DVD player. The touch sensitive button that opens and closes the tray does not always work. The switch has two copper contacts that touch two contacts on a circuitboard that have what seems like grease on them. Does it use some kind of conductive grease to work? It has another switch for play/pause that is the same type as this one (touch sensitive) and it looks like it has the same type of conductive grease on it, but it has no problems. I only have to barely touch this switch to make it work.

Hi, I have the same system and had the same problem with the drive door refusing to open when you press the open button. I fixed it quite easily, unplug every thing, on the rear of the unit, remove the two screws holding the top rear cover on. This will reveal two plastic securing clips for the front top cover, release these and the top cover will slide off easily. You will find that there are two bent over hook wires, where the button is and if you look at the under side of the top cover, you will see two metal contact strips that are suppose to touch these wires. All i did was bend the wires out a little so that they made better contact with the sensor strips. Put it all back together again and hey, it worked right away. Good luck, Richard

SOURCE: Hi, I have a
I'd advise eliminating any intervening hardware until you resolve the problem. If it works, Great!
What exactly isn't working that also goes through a VCR to a TV? How is it all connected, specifically?
"Different buttons". Can you be more specific? Perhaps you just have a remote control issue.
See this link:
"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If not, it's time to call 1-800-Remotes or use this website to order a new remote.
If it works, Great!

if the television has audio outputs it can, look on the back of the tv for audio outputs, they would be red and white jacks (or red and black) the red is the right channel and the white/or black is the left. If you don't have audio outputs on the tv, look for an earphone jack, you can buy a cable that will plug into it and then into your home theatre system.
