The door wont open for me to put in the dvd on our player

Put your ear against the dvd draw and press the Eject button, if you hear a noise of a motor spinning up then the belt is either worn so its slipping or has snapped, if you hear no noise then the disk tray loading motor or the driver chip on the mainboard has shorted out.
hope ths helps.

The manual window handle on my 2003 Escort ZX2 snapped?

You will have to replace your "window regulator". Normal 0

Locate and remove the screws that hold yourinterior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap onclips). Remove the interior door handles. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar topull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips toprevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled,pull the panel upward to remove it from the door. Once you have access to the inside of the door, you will be able to see the bolts that retain the window regulator, remove them, and replace the regulator.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 Inkjet Printer When I try to print on a cd/dvd I line up the arrows hit print but it keeps telling me to close the cd/dvd tray, there is no way it will print with this tray.

The cd/dvd tray door has a small opening on right edge. Inside there is a slide switch. Use a toothpick to see if it is stuck. Check where it closes to the main body. A thin strip protrudes out to mate and close the plastic actuator of the switch. The door may not be closing well enough the actuate the switch. Make sure it is fully closed and retry to print. Also, there will be a small click as you raist the door before it snaps into place. If not, check to see if there may be some debris causing it to not actuate properly.
Good luck,

Dvd player

Sounds like you have a faulty Drive/ Eject door motor, Snapped drive belt if a noice can be heard or the Motor driver chip has malfunctioned.


When you press eject listen for a noise like a small humming from the dvd drve part, if there is a hum then more than likely your belt has broken which is inexpensive but if nothing can be heard then its likely the motor or Driver Chip. The motor can be easily replaced if found on an auction site.

DVD will not close its door

Open it up (take the screws out) and see if one of the door tracks came out. Just snap it back in place.
