My Giec stopped working

I own a Giec DVD Player Model GK-3500 which I have had for 4 years and recently it stopped working. The disc tray will not open, the receiver window VFD display unit blinks but does not show a message, the ope/close button does not work and when I trun it on all I see is the screen from the player blinking on an off. What should I do to get it working myself since I do not have the money to try and get it repaired if I could find someone to repair it. Help!

Hi SoraTotoro,

This sounds like the child lock has been inadvertently activated . Look through the manual to find the key combination to unlock it.

Hope this helps.

Most likely the tension band that is attached to the mechanical parts of motor and the tray detached. you'll need to disconnect the power and unscrew the cover open and put the band back in place.

WILL NOT EJECT DISC


What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 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.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

My DVD tray will not open, and with no disc inside the display says 'reading' constantly. Any thoughts?


The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

My kids locked my rca dvd player model rc5220p


The Disc Tray is Locked
If the message “Tray Locked” appears on the screen, the retail lock feature has
been accidentally engaged. To unlock the disc tray you must press and hold a
combination of keys simultaneously:
On the front panel of the DVD Player, press and hold the STOP, ON•OFF and
OPEN•CLOSE buttons for at least 3 seconds.

I forget the password Your player is equipped with a “back-door” unlock sequence. Press and hold
the STOP button on the front of the DVD Player and the STOP button on the
remote control at the same time. (Hold both buttons down at the same time
for at least 3 seconds).
