If I remember correctly, this unit has a little rubber belt that drives the DVD tray. When it ages, the rubber hardens and loses traction. Thus, the tray does not close properly, the internal sensor recieves no 'closed' message within a specific time, and the tray opens.
There doesn't seem to be a code available at the moment but from looking around lots of dvd forums there seems to be a lot of people pointing to this site:
Multi-Region - Phillips DVP3340v Instructions:
Put the CD into the DVD player
(This should open up a region menu)
The last 2 steps are done on your remote control:
Press 0 for multi-region
I've seen a few comments that say this works but I don't have the player to test it myself. I have downloaded the "Zoran" file though, unzipped it and scanned it for viruses and it came up clean. I hope this helps. Regards Mike
I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.
The belt that opens and closes the door is probably worn out. CD rom drives are very cheap to buy and very easy to install. No speacial skills are needed. You can even get a decent DVD burner for about $25 or $30 brand new at www.tigerdirect.com
Some CD drives have a little tiny hole under the tray to eject a disc that may be stuck. You will need something to stick in there and move the part you hit. Push on it enough to make the tray open just a little and then you can pull it open with your hand.
Let me know if you want to put a new one in yourself and I will explain how. All you need is a phillips screwdriver and about 15 minutes of spare time.
the belt that opens and closes the drawer is too old and likely stretched out or otherwise deformed.. it's a $3.00 part however i'm having difficulty finding the part number to find an exact match, and could use help on that. i'm going to temporarily use a belt i got from a dvd repair place. we measured it and found one that's ALMOST the same size (little skinnier but little shorter. difficult to gauge proper belt without a parts list. i'll keep looking. if anyone has access to parts list for GoVideo DVR4200 i'd appreciate the heads up. thanks, mark
