SOURCE: Won't load DVD for Initial IDM-7110

First check and see what is happening inside. Take something small and stick n the lock mech, which is the hold that a small part of you top to the player sticks in to tell the unit that it is closed. See if the lense light up and moves up and down and also see if it moves forward a bit and back to start position. If player does not do any of this then with fingers move lense down line abit to see if anything is obstruting path. You can move all the way down then place DVD in and try again

I had the same problem , so nowing about electronics i did a test at the read eye . then i notice where the ribbion cable joins the reading eye looked like it was crack at the contact so i replaced the ribbion cable from a old dvd player I had sitting around it worked that was three weeks ago. the cable i,am talking about is white in color that it connected to the board and the reading eye . it crack is so small at the it can be over looked . this was caused by the head moving back and forth.over time .
