I solved this problem on my HTS3410D.

Inside there are two circuit boards, the power supply board and the audio/video board.

  • First, unplug your unit and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Now open the unit up, and unplug all of the connectors going to or from the power supply board. You can easily tell which board is the power supply board because it's the one the power cord plugs into.
  • Unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the board to the case.
  • Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, squeeze the two white plastic clips that hold the board to the case (one at a time), while gently lifting the board away from the case.
  • Now that you have the board out, feel the tops of all the capacitors (they look like this). Healthy capacitors should have a totally flat top. (There is probably one that is covered in some sort of heat shrink, so you can't feel the top.)
  • One capacitor most likely has a slightly bulging top. That is the culprit.
  • Using a soldering iron, carefully remove the busted capacitor, making sure to note which side the stripe is on.
  • Buy a replacement capacitor at Radio Shack or www.digikey.com that has the same capacitance (e.g. - 1000uF) an equal or greater voltage, and an equal or greater maximum temperature.
  • Insert and re-solder the replacement capacitor in the same orientation as the one you took out, then trim the excess leads.
  • Reassemble your system, and you're done.
The capacitor that died on mine was 1,000uF, 16V, 105°C. It was located fairly close to where the power cord comes in to the board. I replaced it with a 1,000uF 50V capacitor, and the system powered right up like a champ. The entire process took me about an hour.

I hope this helps some other people have similar results.

SOURCE: DVD load / eject problem

This is a solution to all those who have either a DVD which does not load and which cannot be ejected and also to those who have the system stuck in MP3 mode. The solution is the same for both problems. Unfortunately due to the design of the HTS6510 it’s not a simple job but if you are methodical and take your time then most people should be able to do it.
 
 I personally think the problem stems from dust building up on the laser. I noticed that the extraction fan at the back of the unit draws air, partly, in from the front slot and over the DVD and (Sony) laser.
 
Anyway I’ll talk you through what I did but please be aware that this is not a screw by screw, connector by connector account.
 
You’ll need a small torx screwdriver (the unit is put together almost exclusively with a single torx screw size),  a very small Phillips screwdriver and a pair of snipe nosed pliers. Also a couple of small bowls to hold the screws in will be a good idea.
 
Firstly make sure the unit is disconnected from the mains. Then begin by undoing  the four torx screws at the back of the unit which are holding the cover on. Then remove the silver plastic side sections by sliding them towards the back of the unit. Under these you’ll see two more torx screws to be removed on each side. Remove these and you can then remove the top cover.

Have a look at the first attached picture. You should see the same thing with the lid off the box. I’ve labelled all of the assemblies up. There are four circuit boards which are arranged two on the top and two underneath these. You will be removing the top two (Audio amplifier board and the power supply board).
 
The aim of the game is to move the front section (the bit with all the control buttons on) away from the main section so that you can get access the to the DVD housing (this is the player unit where your DVD is housed). The front section is attached to the main section by four plastic clips (the plastic barb to metal slot type). Two are accessed from the base of the unit and more on each side. Don’t unclip these yet because the circuit boards are attached by ribbon cables which attach to the front of the unit . It is these ribbon cables which must be disconnected before the front can be unclipped and access can be got to the DVD unit. There are also a couple of bonding leads which attach the front of the unit to the ain chassis. These have small spade (push on) connectors and are very simple to remove.
 
You don’t need to disconnect all of the ribbon cables – just enough for you to be able to swing the front of the player out of the way.  Make sure you mark any connectors which you disconnect in some way so you remember where they connect to when you re-assemble the unit. I used a permanent marker to put a series of dots on the ribbon end of the connector and board end of the connector. (i.e. one dot on each denotes a pair, the next pair has two dots etc etc.)
 
Some of the leads which you will need to disconnect are attached to the two processor  boards which sit below the two uppermost circuit boards. Gain access to these by removing the four screws (one on each corner) holding the power supply board onto its mounting (there is also a nylon support in the middle of the board – squeeze it with a small pair of pliers to release the board).
 
Next remove the black plastic insulator sheet below the board. With this board removed, the metal shelf which the Audio amplifier board is attached to can now be removed. Note that some of the screws on the external back of the unit will also need to be removed before you can do this. You don’t need to take the audio amplifier board off the shelf – just remove the shelf and audio  amplifier board together.

You should now have an assembly which looks like my second picture. As with the top two boards unplug the connectors on the boards to allow the front section of the dvd player to be moved away from the main part of the system. Again don’t forget to mark the connectors so you know how to re-connect them.
 
If you have got this far you are doing very well!  I then undid the four screws holding the dvd housing and unshipped the entire housing, but with hindsight this wasn’t necessary. There are four Phillips screws holding the top cover of the DVD housing on. Remove these with your Phillips screwdriver and lift off the lid.
 
You can now remove the DVD / CD. At the same time carefully remove any dust which has accumulated in the DVD housing. Take care not to damage the delicate lens or its assembly. I used a dry cotton bud but a blast of dry air or a lens cleaning brush would be an even better choice.
 
Once the dust is removed refit the cover the DVD housing and assembly is basically a reversal of the dismantling. Once its all back together switch on and they system will be back to normal. If it doesn’t switch on – open it up and recheck your connectors – most likely one of them isn’t properly engaged.

SOURCE: dvd player won't open

Don't know if this will work for your dvd player, however I just fixed my Panasonic DVD S53. Turn it off. Flip it on its back, with the front of the player facing away from you and look for a circular indention in the upper right hand area. Should have an embossed OPEN with an arrow. Disconnect from power source.Take a flashlight and look into the slot on the left. You will see the edges of tiny gears. Take a pointy wooden (do not use anything metal) skewer (you know the kind you use for grilling shrimp) and gently turn the gears in a counter clockwise motion. The door will open and the tray should release. Remove any CD that may have been in the machine. Flip it back over, plug in and turn on. Tray will automatically go back in. Push the open button and it should now work properly. If not, at least you would have gotten a CD out of the machine had one been in the tray. This was really helpful to me since a Neflix movie had been caught inside! My player works fine now. And if it happens again, at least I know how to get it to release. Hope this helps. Regards, Doll

Check the servo unit to see if the actuator is changing modes when press the buttons. If one door is open the other will not function either.

CD DRIVE DOOR BUTTON JAMMED ON AX5900


You should see a small 'pin hole' on the face of the CD drive, usually near the eject button itself, but not always. Straighten a paper clip (med size is best) and insert into the hole. You will feel a little resistance (this is good) continue pushing the paper clip straight in until the door pops open. Almost all CD/DVD drives have this "manual open" pin hole for just such cases. Alternately you can open My Computer, point to the CD/DVD icon, right click and choose the "eject" option, this will open the tray if the physical button has stopped working.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Dvd door won't open for Sanyo DVW 6000


If you are trying to eject a disc, look closely at the front bezel of the drive, there is a small hole near the eject button, push a paper clip into the hole (straightened paperclip) and the tray will be ejected.

If the DVD door is stuck and will not open through ejecting via the icon in My computer, or the eject button on the bezel will not work, you likely have a faulty drive that will need to be replaced
