Question about Sony RDR-GX330

3 Answers

"loading" at startup

My JVC DR-MH20 continually flashs "LOADING" on start-up and is not functional. My Sony RDR-GX330 has a DVD in it and when I turn the power on the screen continually flashes LOAD. After giving it some time to finish loading the DVD, it still flashes. I press the open tray button to eject the DVD and get no response. I unplugged the unit for about a week and after plugging back in, I get the same problem.

See if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

Good luck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

Hi the problem you are having is to do with the tray that the dvd loads into then slides into the dvd player you are going to have to remove the casing and then look where the tray is and see if a spring has come off or see if it has come off the runners slightly also if your dvd player has a flap that opens when the tray comes out then you might find that its going to be the flap that has come loose or that a spring has come off this and blocking the dvd tray from working properly let me know if you need further assistance ok
