DVD disc stuck in vision plusTV/DVD combo

There should be a tiny hole somewhere on the front of the DVD tray, where you put the disk in. If it's not on the tray itself, it should be very close to it. Bend a paper clip out a bit, and carefully press it into that tiny little hole, and the tray should open up. If that doesn't work, then it's physically jammed, and mechanically unable to open.

Pioneer DVD 717 - Not Loading Discs Whenever I load a disc, the player spins the disc for a moment before slowing down. to a stop. It repeats this around four times in succession before it then opens...

Hi msaslloyd ,

This could be because of a damaged lens , where the dvd player tries to recognize the disc but is unable to do so and then either sends the disc back i.e. the tray opens up or the message no disc loaded is displayed.

I suggest you to :-

  1. Clean the lens with a lens cleaner available in the market and load any disc in the player to check if it's working fine.
  2. Get the lens replaced from the market and the problem should be solved.
Hope this helps ..:)

Good evening. I have a Thomson DTH 5000 I am unable to retrieve a dvd from it as the drawer appears to be stuck!! any ideas as to how to sort out this problem. Many thanksja

Take the cover off the device, and look for anything blocking the DVD tray. If nothing can be seen, remove DVD by hand, and try manually pushing open the tray after pressing the open button.

CAUTION: Once the tray moves, get your fingers out of there FAST! The tray might not be able to cut you, but it will hurt like no other if your fingers get stuck in there!

Once the tray is open, push the open button a few times to open and close the tray. This will loosen any debris that may have blocked it. If it still won't move, then the motor has gone out or been disconnected. Have someone with experience working with electronic circuit boards take a look at it to determine the problem.

Hope that helps!

The DVD stopped playing and I 'm unable to open it even manually to remove the DVD

There should be a pin hole in front of the tray, if there is! use a needle or very fine screwdriver and push it in until you hear a click, the tray should pop open.

I am unable to open the dvd tray after inserting a dvd which plays ok.i want to be able to open and close the dvd tray as normal.

There may be a problem with the dvd you are using. If you look at the front of the dvd player there should be a very small hole. Take a paper clip and insert into this hole which should open the dvd drawer.

Now try another dvd to the if the player functions correctly. If not it likely means that there is a problem with your dvd player.

Pioneer DV 310 K region free

Step 1) Download the pioneer firmware here

The site says the firmware only works on region 2 players. For this model it worked for my region 4 player in Australia

Step 2) Burn this file to a CD-ROM with name PIONEER as per these instructions -

Step 3) Load the CD and your DVD player with ask you to flash the firmware. It says press play to start but instead HOLD DOWN ENTER during the entire process. DO NOT switch off your DVD during this time. When the tray opens take the CD ROM out but keep the DVD on. The flashing can take up two to three minutes. During this time HOLD DOWN ENTER ON THE REMOTE. The entire time!

Step 4) The DVD player will reboot. The tray should be empty. It will then load the tray back into the player. If the signal is disorted switch on and off.

Your done! Should work.

The most complex way of region freeing a DVD I have ever endured! :)
