Hi.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button while you turn on the unit at the same time. Repeat the procedure several times. If the trick does not work, then the unit must be disassembled to fix the problem.

The procedure is broadly illustrated here: DVD player in my home theater system won't open the disk tray.

Regards.

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

DVD drawer does not open when you push button to open DVD drawer


The most likely cause is damage, which should be seen with the eye. It could be a belt, broken cogs/teeth in the sledge mechansim, or a micro leaf switch bent out of place.

DVD DRAWER won't open


OK.
I assume the display does not say 'locked' when you press eject.
A DVD drawer is run by a small rubber belt on most of these old machines. This belt can be worn out (Very common)
The DVD drawer position is detected by a switch that can be pressed in or out to detect the drawer is closed or open. This switch can cause the drawer to stay in if it thinks the drawer is not yet closed. Cleaning the switch (Take the DVD drive out and remove and clean or replace the switch) can usually fix this.
A fault with the DVD process cicuit board can also cause this. I would recommend a new machine if this is the case.
Testing:
Bad belt - the DVD drawer shifts a bit when the eject button is pressed.
Bad switch - a whirring sound can always be heard when the DVD is first powered on. May give an error in the display.
Bad process board - Generally, says open forever or close forever and will not change back to normal display. You cannot get any other functions to work after you press eject. Unplug the machine, its normal until you press eject again. (just a generic common thing)

How do you get the drawer to open in order to put the DVD in?


Do you have the owner's manual ? There is usually a button on the remote and also one on the machine near the door. On some machines, you can push the slide in slightly and it then pops out.

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open


I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

I read about some magnetic thing failing as the unit gets older. Mine does this sometimes and I gently tap top of unit as I hit the eject button. Works on mine so far.
