Dvr 231 won't load

Someone needs to open the unit to see if something that does not belong got inside and to see if mechanism is functioning or not. If it does not fully load the disc it will eject it on its own.

Our Yamaha DVR C300 player suddenly won't play ANYTHING. Put any kind of disc in and it tries to load each disc and at the end says "NO DISC". Any tips??

hi there. take the lid off and try cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud.its next to the small round platform that the disc sits on when loaded,and looks like a pale blue-ish round bead,about the diameter of a cigarette end...if the disc spins very slowly,on the other hand,its possible the spindle motor is faulty..dont bother with a cd lens cleaner,they are worse than useless!! hope this helps,steve

DVD DRAWER won't open

I assume the display does not say 'locked' when you press eject.
A DVD drawer is run by a small rubber belt on most of these old machines. This belt can be worn out (Very common)
The DVD drawer position is detected by a switch that can be pressed in or out to detect the drawer is closed or open. This switch can cause the drawer to stay in if it thinks the drawer is not yet closed. Cleaning the switch (Take the DVD drive out and remove and clean or replace the switch) can usually fix this.
A fault with the DVD process cicuit board can also cause this. I would recommend a new machine if this is the case.
Bad belt - the DVD drawer shifts a bit when the eject button is pressed.
Bad switch - a whirring sound can always be heard when the DVD is first powered on. May give an error in the display.
Bad process board - Generally, says open forever or close forever and will not change back to normal display. You cannot get any other functions to work after you press eject. Unplug the machine, its normal until you press eject again. (just a generic common thing)

Does not respond to remote control

After power on the dvd, open the tray and put any video dvd in and close it, wait for about a minute, then press Setup or any button on remote control, if it work then need to replace with the new battery CR2025.
