Question about Dual Presidian DVD Recorder

1 Answer

DVD tray will not open

Hi, we have a Presidian combo DVD/video player. The DVD tray will not open, either manually or with the remote. Reading the printed manual does not provide any help. We changed batteries in remote thinking that would help but it does not. We bought it a year and 4 months ago and so warranty is gone. Many thanks for your help.

    This unit has worked fairly well until just the other day. Now the tray will not open as has been described at other internet sites. The manual say if this happens to contact a service agent. However, I am willing to bet that it will cost more to repair it that to pitch it and replace it with another better unit. If anybody has any home remedies please let us know.

When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.

    I have also found that inserting a table knife around the top or lower edge of the tray, while pressing the Eject button on the player repeatedly will usually get the PDR 3222 to open.

Dvd player will not eject or play dvd. It just keeps spinning and says "reading." I've tried unplugging for 2 minutes, pushing close/open and stop at the same time(hold for at least 3 seconds)....


Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray. Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.6 Jan 2013

How can I stop a dvd player from reading non-stop with no disc in player---player is not on lock but refuses to open.


Power off, then disconnect from the wall plug.This resets the dvd. after five ninutes, reconnect the power and start the combo. Should have 'load' on the display, then open the tray of the dvd.When you close the tray, it will try to 'read' a dvd again.

Dvd tray will not open or play


Hello,

The reason your player keeps reading a disc and do not play is because the the disc tray is not sitting the disc properly on the lens.

The disc tray is faulty, the mechanism that controls the opening and closing of the tray is damaged and needs repair.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover of the player.

You will see a mechanism by the opening of the tray that controls the disc tray.

Get a replacement mechanism and change it. Mostly the rubber slacks and does not control the tray properly.

Changing the mechanism will solve the problem.

Take care

Presidian DVD/VHS combo player/recorder model 16-163


make sure you are using the right input. Also the VHS might have macrovision copy protection to prevent copying. you may need a video stabilizer box if you have macrovision. If its a home movie VHS then its an input setting on your DVD recorder. it may only record from the internal vcr not an external but I am not sure

The dvd player will not eject the dvd


We once had 2 DVDs in the tray (thanks, kids). The tray would not open and had similar symptoms.

We eventually pulled/pried-open the tray (while it was attempting to open by itself, aka you could hear the try motor was activating.)

I'm sure a tech would cringe at this, but it did eventually pop open (with our aggressive help) - and all is well.

Good luck.
