Re: My RCA DRC 220 Dvd Players disc tray does not want to...
It seems that the track (carriage) is proberally damaged or needs cleaning, open it out and have a look at the track that takes in the disc if it has dust clean it out or you can open and close it bu hand to get it loose a bit.
If that dont work the motor that pulls in the track or sends it out has a band on it, it might be slack or worn or even dried up and lost elasticity, test it by pulling it in and out a few time to see if it snaps, if you think its worn are slack replace it with a rubber band or a smaller size to the band...
the last think to check is the motor it self.if the abose fails you'll need to change the motor

There are a number of possibilities, jammed gears caused by a disc or gears out of time, some have a very small loading belt located under the draw in most cases, excessive ware and tare on plastic gear linkage.
2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour
1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed
2-the dvd player itself is a bit old
when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back
This sound like a problem with the laser read circuits and it may be solved with a simple cleaning and using compressed air to clear the unit of debris .To do this you must take off the top cover of your unit by taking out the screws and lifting the top off. To clean the laser head you should use cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol. put a small amount on the cotton swab and rub the swab gently back and forth over the head, until it seems bright and shiny.Check the transport carriage for dust and debris and also the gears. all these must be clean for proper operation. You may want to put a little lithium grease on the gears and guide rails for smooth operation. All this should be done in minute amounts so you do not over do it and cause more problems. If all this fails to allow you to use you disc player, Then you probably have a worn out laser sensor and will have to have it replaced. If under warranty send it in and if not try to find the part number and order it and either take in to a service center for repairs or do it yourself. Hope this helps you with your problem.
I met a lady with the same problem. I had to open the unit (use caution/check warranty) and I found out the foam pad that holds the discs in place fell off of its holder. If you place this back on, the unit should work again just fine.
try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.
