Question about Toshiba SD-3980 DVD Player

1 Answer

Upon trying to remove a disk, disk remains in player and tray opens empty

We have a dvd disc seemingly stuck inside the player. The disc reads and works well; but will not come out of the machine. When ejecting (open/cose) the disc, the tray opens and comes out; but it is empty. The disk is still in the player.

This is caused be the "lift" part of the mechanism not functioning properly. A fix may be inexpensive or not, depending upon what is needed to make it rise and lower properly....accordianman

DVD Player won't open


Try this. This works on some brands and models.

Power up the unit. Using the remote, press and hold the 'STOP' button for about 5 seconds. Release and press the 'OK' button.

DVD tray will not open


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.

The tray is either broken, or off track. You may be able to get it back on track by opening the cover and checking it out, but unplug it first, and only try this if warrantee is over and you're feeling brave...
