When I insert a DVD, the drawer closes and the menu says loading but then reports no disc. I have opened the unit and observed the process. When the drawer closes the DVD is clamped and the laser comes on and looks like it is attempting to focus but the DVD does not spin as I would expect it to do.

The low humming sound is the motor that opens and closes the drawer. It is moving, but the movement is not being transferred to the door by a pulley, a belt or a gear, When you open the drawer completely, it should stop. When the drawer is closed completely it continues to run until the disc is in the proper position to play. As long as that motor is running the DVD will not work because the disc is not in the proper position,
I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.
I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.

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.
ACCORDING TO AN OLD MANUAL ,TO UNLOCK THE PASSWORD CODE YOU MUST FIRST BE UNDER NO DISC CONDITION THEN PRESS NUMBER # 7 KEY, NUMBER # 6 KEY,NUMBER # 4 KEY, NUMBER # 1 KEY, AND NUMBER # 8 KEY ON THE REMOTE CONTROL IN ORDER. GOOD LUCK, I HOPE IT WORKS. BRIAN B
When the DVD player is plugged into power and switched on, and won't power up (nothing shows up in the front display panel), the power supply unit in the DVD is blown. the noise that player made was probably a capacitor going off. You will have to get the unit repaired.
