You need to change the drive belt. Attempt only if you know how to replace electronic parts. Open top cover and see drive bay to locate any belt that opens the door. Replace it with a new one. Also apply a little grease to the drive's edges.

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?


Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo DVD tray is stuck in open position. Pressing close button results in slight jerking motion of tray followed by display of "close", then "load" ...


There is typically a small rubber belt or plastic gear that goes between the tray motor and the tray. Most modern units have the plastic gear. I would bet that it is missing a tooth or stripped its teeth or possibly fell off completely. You should be able to manually push the drawer in. To open it, there should be a small hole near the tray into which you can push a straightened-out paper clip.

Good luck!

DVD Drawer won't open-- paperclip method isn't working


Unplug it. You'll have to open the cover. Then you may have to remove the tray assembly from the frame. On the bottom you will be able to access the belt. If you're luck, it might be in another location on top or off to the side.
