I have a Phillips HDD & DVD player/Recorder and when i try to open the try a sign comes up saying BLOCKED and I can't load a disc

Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, postback with the model number.

BLOCKED as it implies indicates that the tray could not slide out; a common problem with some Philips models. Fix is to replace the DVD deck mechanism. Workaround is to always leave a disc inside.

Offhand, on most Philips models, there would be a manual eject slot at the bottom of the unit as shown in the representative image below.


Good luck and thank you for asking.

The tray on my Phillips DVDR 3380 won't open. It says blocked or no disc. I have pressed open /close many times but to no avail.I have turned the power off, makes no difference. I have press stop when it...

I have the same problem. What I do is push my hand down firmly on top of the DVD Recorder above the tray and while doing this press the open button. If this doesn't work get a screwdriver and poke it into the sides of the tray and pull it away. I find that the first method works best! XD

Hope This Helps!

The dvd recorder uses the video signal to detect, thus it will not detect the audio as a signal. I believe there are "boxes" you link in somehow to "fool" the dvd into thinking it's recieving a video signal, but I don't know where to get them.
