Re: disc problem

Does it have a plastic latching mechanism that may be broken? Does it operate when the cover is held closed or will the cover not move into the closed position, or does it move into the closed position and just not stay shut?

My sylvania dvd player is only saying open on the screen and not reading any dvd's.

The problem is the switch button (signaling if the Cover is Opened or Closed)
locacted under the circle hole near the edge of the DVD disc is
MISALIGNED with small pin-plastic (located near the edge of Back DVD Cover)
whenever you close the DVD cover.
So what I did, I enlarged the cirle hole using a soldering iron carefully
and the switch is now visible. You can either make the switch
permanently engaged to On by pressing down switch and put a tiny glue
OR applied glue a tiny screw washer to make the pin-plastic
bigger in diameter. This will surely pin down the switch to On to
signal that the DVD cover is closed. Good Luck.

I nudged the loading tray with my foot when changing a disc. As a result the tray is not opening or closing, presumably because it is no longer aligned properly. Is this likely to be something I might fix...

Mechanical timing and alignment is the problem of your dvd player.
This comes when you accidentally force the disc tray to close.
You need to open the cover of the dvd player..take out the dvd mechanical loading system try to eject it manually by turning the gear with your hand.
Make sure that the cd loader reaches the limit switch before it closes. This will return back the right timing and alignment.

My Mintek 1770 dvd player will not load the disc because when the lid goes down the little plastic pointer does not properly engage the button that starts the DVD spinning when the lid is closed. If I try...

if you look on the top cover inside you should see a round plate that sit on the DVD when you close the cover if this plate press hard or loss it will not have the correct speed in this plate there is a clutch see if its not to lose
hope it will help

DVD side will not open, for the longest I could only get the DVD side to open if there was a disk in the slide yesterday the DVD side was closed with NO disk in it and now I can not open it

The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. If this doesn't open the unit, you will have to unplug the unit and remove the cover. The cover is held in place by two silver screws on each side and five silver screws on the back of the unit. Once the cover screws have been removed, you can slide the cover towards the back halfway and then take the silver cover (held in place with two screws) off of the DVD player. Once the DVD cover is removed, insert a disc in the player and re-install the dvd cover and case cover. Plug the unit back in and eject and close the cover like normal. I have never tried to remove the magnet from the cover and checked to see if the DVD player still worked correctly. I have found it easier to just leave a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

My coby-514 dvd won't open up when the open/close

disc is stuck, remove cover screws and carefully remove the disc, do not force the unit, once the disc is out use the remote to close the unit, then use remote to open and use a different disc press play and hopefully it will work, try to avoid not using the remote for all functions,including open-close. do not push tray in manually.

My DVD tray will not open, and with no disc inside the display says 'reading' constantly. Any thoughts?

The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

Cannot Close Sony DVP-NC665P 5 disk tray

There is a possiblity that he may have shifted the unit while discs were in it causing the discs to slip off the tray and into the unit. You have to open the unit to check if there are loose discs.
