I purchased a Pioneer DVL-909 combo unit 10 years ago and it has never given me any trouble with playback or anything. Today, I tried to switch it on and though it tries to cue up, the disc tray will not open. I tried switching off the power and also unplugged the power chord, but to no avail. Is my unit fried? Is there some way of fixing this? Is it worth fixing? I don't have the manual, so would appreciate any assistance. I'm a total novice, so I apologize if the question is stupid.

Re: Tray won't open
It could be electrical or mechanical. Without checking there is no way to be sure. You can get the service manual for your model for 10.00 at the following link. That should get the problem taken care off. http://www.electronicsrepair.net/dvd9.shtml

You need to remove the cover and expose the area where the motor sits close to the front, you will find a broken belt, replace that, if you can't get to the screw to remove the assembly, use your fingers or screwdriver to turn the cog so that the drawer is manually opened. make sure power cable is unplugged first.
You can also try flipping the player upside down and shaking it a little. I bought a DVL 909 and when it arrived the tray wouldn't open. The seller told me to try that, and it actually worked. I wouldn't recommend shaking it quite so much as this video shows... but it does show that it can work.
