Re: Tray will not open..about 2 yrs old...and just...

I have this problem with my ILO quite often when leaving a disk in for a while. The only way to fix it is to take apart the recorder and manually remove the disk. The last time that I did this I dabbed the sticky part of the ILO with a Kleenex (to tone down the "stickiness"). Time will tell if this worked, but so far so good...

The CD tray on my computer will not opn

How old is the Cd Drive?

If its old than one of the bands that opens the tray has snapped causing it to not open.

Did you hear noises when it was closed?

If you heard a noise then what ever was inside was not properly placed in tray and caused internal damage to the bands inside that open the tray.

If u need it open then there is a small hole more then likely on the left hand side at the bottom small enough for a straightened paperclip to go in and manually open the cd tray.

If its old then just replace the old cd drive with a new one.

My player opens and closes continuously after switching it on, its only a month old

Here are a few possible fixes :
1. Open the micro switches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.
2. Sometimes the loading belt is at fault. There are microswitches inside which determine the limits of the tray movement. There is one that is activated to indicate that the tray is out and another to indicate that the tray is in. If the belt slips, the inner may not be activated and the system will cause the tray to come out. Try replacing the belt.

How do I enable this player to become multi-region? I believe it's based on a Pioneer rather than one of Teac's own designs.


Thanks for using FixYa. To make it multiregional please follow these step by step instructions using your remote control:

1. Switch power on

2. Open the DVD tray (leave it open with no DVD in it)
3. Press "stop"
4. Press "734466"
5. Use cursor to scroll up or down until it says "Region 0"
6. Press "OK/Enter"
7. Switch power off
8. Switch power on

It show now play all region DVD’s. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

How to unlock Samsung VR8260C

Tops! It does work! I specifically bought this LG to replace an old LG which was easy to set. The open tray is critical as is waiting about a second between the three '0' key pushes. You will get the region code test screen on the TV. Re-cap: 1. Open DVD tray 2. Press the '0' key on the remote three times, waiting about one second between key presses. The 'Region Test' screen will appear on the TV. If you don't get this screen, then power off/power on again and start over. 3. If the Region Test screen appears, enter '0' for all-regions. 4. Press pause to save and exit.

Tray will not open

My ILO was doing the same thing, then it stopped doing it. It then suddenly would not recognize any media. I opened up the case and found it is using a dvd lite-on recorder. I had this old pc laying around with a gigabyte dvd recorder in it. For a test, I unplugged the lite-on and plugged in the gigabyte recorder. On power up, it seemed to work fine. After recording 3 DVD's I modified the case to accept the hew recorder. ** problems since, its not pretty, but it was easy to get the unit functional again.

Tray confused

I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside.
I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back.
let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old
