How do I get the disc drive of a dvd recorder to open after getting out the disc and resetting the machine?


Go back through the release process you did the first time to remove the stuck disk. it appears that part of the mechanism that moves the drive did not engage again.

Why can't we get the dvd to eject?


Possibility 1 -
The laser light inside the DVD player is most probably no longer aligned and cannot read the beginning of the disk. Therefore it keep on trying to find the first line but it can't.
Possibilty 2 -
Your husband entered a pirated copy and sometimes the first few tracks are unreadable due to the lower quality of DVD-R used and it jams the laser light inside the DVD player.
What needs to be done is to unplug the DVD from its source and gently pull open the DVD drawer in order to remove the stuck disc inside. Once that is done, power up the unit and press on the "eject" bottom so that the drawer can close itself.
Good luck.

All disc are bad disc?


Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.

1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

DVD stuck in sony blueray player bdp s300


Step1There are a few ways to get your dvd/cd drive release itself. The first thing you should try is shut your equipment completely off for a couple of minutes allowing it to cool down. Once you turn it back on try to press the release button on your equipment. Step2If that does not work try to use a very thin flat tip screwdriver. Insert in on one of the sides of the dvd/cd drive and try to pull it out softly while pressing the eject button simultaneously. Do not force it out but give enough pressure while pressing the eject button. Step3More than likely inserting a screwdrive should release the dvd/cd drive. You can also try a butterknife as well just don't use to much force. Something else to check for is to make sure the power is acutally on for the device. If you are trying to open a drive that is not even on it will never open up for you.

Dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind


jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.

Tray won't open


What your husband is doing appears to be the right approach. Looks like the CD was not inserted properly and must've gone out of its seating and preveting the door from opening. Just pusing the CD back to position should take care of it.

I put in a DVD and it says NO DISC.


1st, I think the term 'Expert' is used too loosely here, at least for me. LOL. I just had the pleasure of fixing an IDM-1731 with a 'No Disc' error. It just so happens that calibrating the drive helped me out.

For any of you that feel like taking a risk & opening up your player, I urge caution when handling the optical lens. There are 2 pots located above the ribbon on the end that connects to the lens to the left. The 1 on left I touched to the right & that helped me out. I'm thinking that the vibration caused the player to get out of whack as time goes on.

After getting the player to work, I took measurements with my multimeter. The left pot measures 3.06 k ohms & the right measures .965 k ohms. I hope this helps others out as it did for me.
