Re: pacific dvd player

No Joy yet. Sounds like the disc won't spin up to the proper speed, or something else during it's initial startup slf-checks, so it just wets the bed.

Why won't the drawer open?

Try this simple answer: on a couple of DVD players I've had, it takes several seconds for the drawer to open. If you press the Open button again during that time, it will close the drawer before it even opens. So try clicking Open once, and then leaving the player alone for a 20 seconds.

Oh, I should have asked first: is the power on? On some players, the power light may be on even if the player is off. Try pressing the power button and see if more lights come on.

Is there a chance that there is a foreign object wedged in there? In my experience, 3-4 years old is prime time for experimenting with DVD players. Have anyone that age in your house? If so, the safe but tedious way to fix that is to remove the case from the DVD player. That usually allows you to see the drawer inside the machine, to see if there's anything in there. The unsafe way involves prying the drawer out; it's unsafe because there is a good chance that you'll destroy the player, and an extremely good chance that you will leave unsightly marks on the front of your player.

Unlocking my DVD player

some others

new model pacific 1002mk2 (ASDA) using remote.;
press open on remote
press clear
press 1-3-6-9 Then 0(for multiregion)

Press close

It's important to note that you will not see anything happen on screen or display!
The buttons are small,so you'll have to be precise









switch on.on the remote press "open/close",0,1,2,3,open/close and it plays straigt away. but nothing is shown on the screen.
It's true - a quality DVD player from Asda for £59.95. Highly recommended. This 1359 hack worked with my Pacific 1002 purchased March 03.
Note. There is no on screen display or any indication on the machine when entering the hack.

Switch machine on and using the remote control only:
1. Press 'open/close' button (the draw should be left open).
2. Press the 'clear' button.
3. Press '1'.
4. Press '3'.
5. Press '6'.
6 Press '9'.
7. Press '0' (zero for multi-region).
8. Press 'open/close' button.


1. switch on dvd with remote (leave drawer closed)
2. Press: setup
3. press: 7 (note nothing will happen)
4. press: pause/setup button (again nothing will happen)
5. press: previous/I<< button (nothing will happen)
6. press: Next/>>I button (nothing will happen)
7. press: setup

First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

Good luck!

Unscrew the casing and take it out from there. By the sounds of it your dvd has bitten the dust so it wont matter much about damaging it anymore than it is already

I bought 2 brand new players rca drc277. Neither one will open the drawer. by button or remote...???is there some code to get it started?

Hello cheekarae,

There is no code to get it started for the first time. If you bought them brand new from the store then you need to return them and get new ones.

If you purchased them off of someone, then I would almost assume they sold you bad dvd players.

The reasons for a cd tray to not come out are A. The motor that turns the gears is not working properly thus not opening the drawer. B. The gears aren't connecting properly and are unable to push the drawer out like there supposed to. (Typically you will hear some clicking or grinding noises if this is the case).

Sorry about your luck, I would look towards replacing them for some that function correctly from the get go. Post back if you have anymore questions. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open

I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

CyberHome DVD player not responding...

The internal power supply has failed and is shutting down each time you try to turn it on. To remove your DVD there is a slot on the bottom labeled: Emergency.... with an arrow pointing the direction you need to push a lever to open the drawer. With good lighting you'll see the tab you need to slide over. Use a small flat blade screwdriver and the drawer will open enough to grasp it and pull it open. The power supply will need to be repaired, but it may have caused other damage and may be more expensive than buying a new player.
