Do a hard reset. Just unplug the power cord for 30 minutes to an hour. When you power it up again it will reset all the internal soft codes inside the dvd player mechanisms.
then you might want to get inside and see if there is something obstructing the mechanism. If not, then it is a servo system failure and the IC will need to be replaced - - - at a cost of more than the price of a new dvd player (which can be connected to the aux input on the tv). You can buy a replacement dvd player for $28 and up.

Ok it has nothing to do with power like these other techs think, it is the mechanism in the dvd drive they break or come off there rails constantly, it is repairable by yourself but it is tricky it is not worth having it repaired cos you can buy a brand new one cheaper, does the vcr drive take the tapes or does it not work at all?

Kindly tell me the make and model of your DVD player for further assistance. If you yourself can find the reset button then press it yourself. Remove your DVD player from power source for 5 minutes and then reconnect. Remember you have to remove every wire connected to your DVD because even from output it can get 5 volts.

I have a dvd stuck in the slot. It won't play or eject. I hear the tv trying to eject but nothing happens. How can I fix it?


You will need to open up both dvd case and dvd player! the rubber type band that turns the wheels to open tray is bad, not tight enough to turn wheels! This rubber type band is located at the front of tray. you might be able to get tray to open by taping the top front of player after you push eject, just not hard enough to bend case.

The door does not open to eject tape, how do I fix it? This is on a Magnavox dvd/vcr player/recorder.


1/ not my expertise , but I would unplug device , remove cover & look for the obvious eg tape damage...BUT beware of capacitors , they bite. .....2/ try to get service manual.....3/ in the case of the dvd tray , you can make it open by poking a straightened paper clip straight into a tiny hole you will find in the box face near the tray......James

LG DVD recorder RH735T. Page 10 of the manual says to finalize a disc before you can play it on a different unit. But when I record something on a disc, the settings menu will not allow me to finalize


On my Toshiba DVD burners, you need to first open the DVD tray, and while it is open hit the regular menu, then DVD menu, select "FORMAT" from the DVD drop down menu, then "FORMAT MODE", which leads you to the 2 CRITICAL Choices :
1) Video Mode - Which has the DVD recording in "DVD Compatibility Mode" so it is "Compatible" with most other DVD Players
OR...
2) VR Mode- Which says "Editing Possibility mode" (Note you need a "+R DVD "to be able to do editing, at least on my machines.
Obviously you'll close the DVD tray to be ready to record
Finish the DVD, @ "DVD" Menu, & Finalize, or what you need with "VR"

GoVideo DVD/VCR combo has a disc in it, and it plays, but I cannot ejecti it. I tried turn off machine and restart it but it still doesn't eject. It keeps reading the disc and plays the program.


there is a belt which is driven by a motor to open or close the tray. u place the disc on the try and the try loads the dvd/cd into the mechanism. the belt is loose & needs replacement. you have to open the cover & find the belt on the mechanism & replace with slightly shorter length of belt.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

Lite-On LVC-9016G DVD drawer does not open


the rather in-elegant solution I use is to lift the unit half inch or so, and drop it. the door then opens and you can insert the disc. if a disc is in the unit, it opens just fine.
