What happens when you try and turn it back on? Nothing? or does it give you any kind of lights?

If you get what looks like a yellow light and then you hear 3 beeps and it shuts back off then you have what they call the "yellow light of death". You can send it back to sony if you still have a warranty. If not you can have them fix it for $150. Or you can try fixing it yourself. There's youtube videos on how to do that.

I can help you get back your dvd. Turn off the power switch in the back. Now that the PS3 is off hold down the eject button. While keeping that held down turn the power button back on. You then should hear the fan start to get really loud (that means it's working). Soon after... the dvd should pop out and there you have it.

Hope that helps.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

well sounds like one of the players is not in correct spot thus shuts down (kinda timing issue) see if there is anything preventing it from going jiggle or turn upside down see if you hear anything.

Player shutting down after 10 seconds


Shutting down completely like power is gone or just DVD stopping with power on? If completely shutting down the look in power supply and find bad capacitor and replace. If DVD stops with power then look at laser, clean or maybe damaged.
