The recorder works fine using the Guider Function, but I can not get the Disc Drawer to open so I can change DVDs.

Re: No Response To Open Button on Remote

I had the same problem- the door would not open.
I opened up the unit removed the drive and discovered a lever which allows to manually eject the tray. After playing with this a bit, I discovered that if I hit open on the until and depress this lever, it would open reliably. Not ideal, but at least it gives me ability to open/close.
Unfortunately once I put the unit back together, it no longer recognizes any disks. I must have damaged some disk sensor mechanism in the process. On the bright side however, it open/closes reliably now, doesnt even require the lever to be depressed manually. So if I can just get it to recogize disks, I am in good shape again.

You may not need to open up the unit and remove the CD burner to get to the manual lever, but you have to remove the fancy cover plate for the tray to be able to access the lever. The cover plate on mine is silvered and says "All write". The lever is on the underside of the tray to the left side, a paperclip might be able to poke thru to access it without removing the whole front cover.
Good luck.

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open

I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

Don't know if this will work for you, but I unplugged the player then plugged it back in again whlie holding down the power button. The player did not power up until I released the power button and pressed it again. That did it.

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.

Akai DVD recorder tray will not open

I am pursuing the exact problem above. I have found a not so hi tech solution. I firmly rap on the top above the disc drawer. This is while Close is being displayed and the drawer is in. If you hear some spinning and load displays it should now work. It may be back to cycling again on the next ejection though.
Technically I figure it may be a sticky magnetic reed switch or what ever they use to detect the drawer position. Mine displays either open or close when it starts to cycle.
