    I don't see a small hole (or any hole on the face of the player).

    Q: What side is the hole located on (left or right)?

    I really appreciate any additional info you can provide.

    Thanks.

Look for a small hole on the face of the player,it is for opening the player tray when the button won't.Stick the end of a paperclip into the hole and push in the tray should open.Good Luck.

    Not all players have emergency eject hole.If it does it could be anyehere, it's very small just big enough to fit the end of the paperclip.If no hole try this..Unplug power,wait 3 minutes, plug back in after player lights up does whatever it does on start up try the open door both from the player and the remote,do this a few times.You can also open the plastic flap on the tray door and push in, down, up, it may free the ejecting system.I.ve had this problem sooner or later with all DVD players, be patient you'll free it.Good Luck.

Gateway AR 230 Recorder recording sound has interference noise


Disconnect the "audio-out" cables from the unit.
Leave the "audio-in" cables connected.
Try to record. Does this work correctly?

Invalid disk


I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.

I read about some magnetic thing failing as the unit gets older. Mine does this sometimes and I gently tap top of unit as I hit the eject button. Works on mine so far.
