Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo
My dvd tray won't open. Hasn't been used in several months. I can hear it trying to open? Any suggestions?
I've had the same problem on one drive first ,then the other. For some reason if you keep a disc in the tray it will open and close fairly normally.Sometimes I have to give it a helping hand to close. This isn't a fix ,but it might help you to get your projects done.

The belt that opens and closes the drawer is too old and likely stretched out or otherwise deformed..
it's a $3.00 part however i'm having difficulty finding the part number to find an exact match, and could use help on that.
i'm going to temporarily use a belt i got from a dvd repair place. we measured it and found one that's ALMOST the same size (little skinnier but little shorter. difficult to gauge proper belt without a parts list.
i'll keep looking.
if anyone has access to parts list for GoVideo DVR4200 i'd appreciate the heads up.

This worked like a charm for me. I don't care that it isn't technical. IT WORKED right a way and the hint about keeping a DVD in the unit is right on too!

I have had the same problem with my GoVideo. May not be very technical, but I find that if I smack on it with something hard, it usually opens. It will usually open if there is a disc in the tray, so I always try to keep one it, and haven't had much problem. oh I just noticed that this post is 9 months old, so you've probably fixed it by now. Oh well...
