Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

DVD Tray will not open

The DVD tray seems frozen. I have tried turning the power off and pressing the reset button, but nothing seems to work. Also, there is a DVD in the tray that had played fine, but now that the tray is stuck, the display also says "no disc" after trying to read it.

I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!

SOURCE: disc is stuck in the tray - samsung dvd R130

Without knowing more of your specific situation, it sounds like the disc is physically stuck and is blocking the motor mechanisms from ejecting. There should be 1-2 screws on each side & one at the rear of the player to remove the outer casing. When you open it, any obstructions should be obvious. The screws should be easy to figure out with an arrow pointing to them stamped into the medal, kindof looks like: =>

WILL NOT EJECT DISC


What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

My unit is doing exactly the same thing. I've tried reloading the firmware, but it never appears to enter the First Time Setup. To load the CD I had to remove the cover, (disconnect the power) and manually eject the DVD tray. With the cover off, look on the side of the DVD. There is a square hole, directly above the screw that attaches the DVD to the chassis. Insert a stiff rod and push. The DVD tray will open. This is how I loaded the firmware CD. This all started after I rescanned the tuner and then did a manual channel edit. While trying to edit the channels, the unit stopped tuning and ended up in its current state.

Toshiba sd-4205 5-dvd carousel changer declares mecha error during startup, will not eject tray.


This may not work for everyone, but.....
I had the same problem with the Toshiba SD-3205. After unplugging, trying button combos, etc, nothing worked. I could here a slight whine inside the machine, and then again...."MECHA ERROR".
I turned the unit on its side to see if there was a manual tray button on the bottom. Nothing. Then just to try it, I turned the machine off and on again while on its side.
It started up, I heard a clatter, and then the display changed to "INSERT DISC". I placed it the right way up again and pressed "OPEN TRAY" and it worked!
My theroy: There was one DVD in the carousel, and I think last time the tray shut, it got wedged somehow and prevented the carousel from rotating. Turning the machine on its side and pressing "OPEN" is what dislodged the disk.
