Question about Yamaha DV-S5450 DVD Player
I hope someone can help me out. I have a Yamaha DVD DV-S5450 player where the disc tray won't open. When I power up the machine, an "OPENING" message is displayed, after a few moments it goes to "BLOCKED". I can hear the drive attempting to open the tray. I've tried to pull the tray out but it's stuck and I don't want to break it. Any help would be appreciated. With best regards Tom
Unplug the DVD player. Wait for 15 minutes, plug it back in and then try opening the disc tray again. Sometimes this will reset it. This worked for mine.

The DV-S5450 may use a belt-loading mechanism. The belt is typically black rubber band with a diameter of approximately 2 cm. It is commonly found in front-loading CDROMs for computers also. Often, as a result of age, usage, humidity, etc the belt snaps, rendering the loading impossible. The loading motor doesn't just pop the tray in or out. It also engages a clutch assembly that raises an inserted disk or lowers a disk to be ejected; this explains why you can't simply force out the tray. Clearly in your case all the electronic signals are there and the loading motor does turn.
Solution: switch off and unplug the unit and then open it up. Do a quick inspection to see if you can locate the broken rubber band. If you can, remove it and take it along with you to the nearest repair shop for exact replacement. If you are finicky around technical work, simply a competent person do it for you. Good luck.
