DVD player disk tray wont stay closed

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could advise me on how to fix my Samsung DVD player. I put a dvd in the disk tray and it said loading and on the screen said disk cannot be played. I then tried with a few more DVD's (all in perfect condition) but none of them worked.

Thank you for any help.

    Hello



    I too have a disc not detected with my Zenith home theater. It will play some discs such as my Star Trek collection, or Dog Whisperer collection, but suddenly will not play any movies. I tried one from netflix, movie gallery and one that I purchased with no success!!



    Any help would also be appreciated!!

    oh and i forgot to mention the disk tray will not stay closed, after a few seconds even in standby, the tray opens again

    Same thing! It really isn't old enough to be broken!!! The tray won't stay closed, therefore the entire unit is useless - can't watch movies or anything.

The drive mechanism might have dust/dirt in it, if its spitting the tray out right away after closing it then its most likely not tripping the switch in the drive correctly when closing it and it thinks its not closed all the way. I have gotten luck with a few by blowing them out with compressed air or an air compressor, but there isn't much fix to them when they fail sadly, if they fail they get tossed.

SOURCE: Disc Error, and DVD tray ejecting on it's own....

If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

SOURCE: wont play saying unknown disk

If the region setting is correct and won't even read a cleaning disc, there's not much you can do. Either the DVD drive or the Main board (aka MPEG board) is faulty and will have to get it repaired. I'm not sure about UK, but in Australia, Bush manufacturing warranty period for DVD players is 12 months.

SOURCE: SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL

On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

SOURCE: dvd tray will not stay closed. opens and shuts randomly

i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.9acead3.jpg

Can't open dvd drawer


Hi,

try putting a Blunt knife into the top of the dvd drawer, or where you can get a knife in.
And gently prise the drawer open whilst pressing eject on the Player.
Failing this, you will have to *****disconnect from the mains***** remove the screws on the rear of the casing, remove the top cover, and take out the DVD Disk.
Replace then plug back in, to check if the player is Ok.

**** Only remove the casing if you feel competant**** And if the player has no guarantee Or Warranty****

E1 (rear) error. DVD tray will not open.


there might be a possibility that as soon as the tray closed the dvd shifted inside the machine. the dvd is stuck yes which means that the tray wont open because the dvd is blocking the gear turning. if so you are going to have to take it to your Dealership to open up the player and remove the disk. you can try it yourself but it's not recommended. tray gears will have to be tested to see if the tray will open once the disk is out though

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

Tray will not stay closed


This fault usually happens if the disc being read is not compatible with the player's firmware.
If discs are burnt from a computer, or copies, this can happen.
Does it do this with all DVD's?
Are you using commercial retail DVD's?
Otherwise something else is telling the player 'No Disk'.
Try a disc-based lens cleaner as laser may be grubby.
Or the laser diode could be defective.

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.
