Alot of cd players, theres a tiny tiny pin hole you can fit maybe a sewing needle, or the end of a paper clip into... do it, and ull probably feel a lil resistance while the internal button is pushed...once u hear like u pressed it, the tray should open.

How to update firmware for vizio vbr100


To update the firmware for the Vizio VBR100 Blu-ray player, you need to download the firmware package to a computer with a CD-R or other optical disc burner. The firmware is a .zip file. Next extract the contents of the compressed folder to see the .ISO file. Use the computer program to burn the ISO to CD. Windows 7 and later included this type of program (right click on the file and choose Burn disc image). For other systems, you need a program that can burn image files to disc. Nero Burning ROM is one such program.

Now make sure that the player does not have an optical disc in the unit and turn it off. If possible, plug the Blu-ray player into an UPS (battery backup). Turn the player back on and wait for the No Disc message. Press Eject to open the disc tray and put in the CD with the firmware. Close the disc tray. The Loading Disc message should appear on the screen followed by the firmware screen. Press Select on the remote to start the update process. (Use the down arrow followed by Select to cancel the procedure.) Wait for the update to finish; you do not want the power to go off during this time. The disc tray will open when the "Success" message is displayed. Remove the CD and press Select. The unit will restart. To check your firmware version, turn on the Blu-ray player with no optical disc in the tray. When you see the "No Disc" message, press eject to open the disc tray. Press the digits 7 8 0 4 in order on the remote. Look at the Revision number of the firmware.

Note: not all versions of the VBR100 can have the firmware updated. Also, Vizio no longer supports this model. There are some third-party sites that claim to have the file. Use caution; suspicious code can be added to the file by various parties.

I hope this helps.

How can I fix the cd tray on a plye PTTCSM60 stereo?


I would use an optical disc player cleaner, you know, the one that looks like a CD? Then I would check the CD for damage and dirt. Clean it with a VERY soft cloth, being careful not to scratch it. If the CD is damaged, you might try another CD.

Sony boom cd/radio/cassette player says no disc and does not play even though the disc is spinning. The radio and cassette do work. We used a Dynex cd/dvd laser lens cleaner and it played for a short...


The laser diode is usually the first component to fail in optical disc players.
If you can, open the casing to expose the CD mechanism.
Point a cell-phone camera at the laser lens, which hides under a flat bridge.
Without a disc inserted, press play or eject / load the CD tray.
Via the camera, you should see the laser diode briefly flash as it tries to read data from where disc should be.
No flash means IR laser diode has probably burnt out.
Don't stare directly into laser beam for long periods with the ***** eye - rather use the camera as an interface.
The beam's visual color is red, but the CDS sensor of a digital camera sees the IR radiation as white on mobile's screen.

CD/DVD drawer won't open so CD stuck inside :(


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It's the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don't want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn't quite finished yet.
5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you're careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa!!

RC-QS11 cd tray won't open. When open button pressed display flashes up 'open' machine whirrs for a couple of seconds then display changes to 'cd'


This is most likely a stripped loading gear or a broken or worn out drive belt.

Some units will display this when a disc is jammed.

Either way you must take the unit apart and inspect the mechanism.

I hope this helps,

Thanks!

Sony cd radio cassetteplayer says no disc when disc is in player


Make sure your cd medium is compatible with your Sony unit. Some cd types that have been burned on a computer may not be compatible. Check your instruction book for your Sony unit to see what types of cd medium you can use.. Also, the lens on you cd player could be dirty and may need a cleaning CLICK HERE to see the Radio Shack lens cleaner. You can also get them at may other locations like Walmart, Target, Sears, and Best Buy. Good Luck! : )

Both trays are stuck closed


Ok, unplug the unit for 5 minutes and plug back into the socket or surge protector. if the unit continues to operate without allowing you access to play a CD, this will confirm load motor failuer. you will need to replace the load motors i thsi case.

Try an audio CD which has been purchased. I think you have MP3's on your cd and your boombox maybe does not support MP3
