Question about Pioneer DVL-909 DVD Player

1 Answer

Disc Tray Won't Open

Hi,

I purchased a Pioneer DVL-909 DVD/Laserdisc 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 also don't hear the whir of the motor like I used to when it would try to cue up a disc. 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.

Thanks.
Rich

Wont read discs


follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you
If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.

Stuck dvd in a pioneer dvl-909


If you open it up and inspect, you may find a loosen or broken little rubber belt. Make a new belt out of a bike inner tube if you got good hands.
Hope this help.

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.

Pioneer DVL-919 DVD door does not open


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.
