HI MELVA,

REGARDING YOUR NOT BEING ABLE TO OPEN YOUR DVD DRAWER. I JUST POSTED THAT PROBLEM FOR MYSELF ON 3-2-09!! ONE SUGGESTION I RECEIVED WAS TO TRY A PAPER CLIP!! I KNOW THAT SOUND CRAZY BUT IT DID WORK FOR ME!!

OPEN ONE END OF A LARGE PAPER CLIP, THEN PUSH THE OPEN BUTTON AND WHILE IT SAYS OPEN I PUT THE LENGTH OF THE PAPERCLIP TO THE UNDERSIDE AND TO THE RIGHT AND I EVENTUALLY HIT SOMETHING THERE THAT OPENED THE DRAWER AND NOW IT OPENS AND CLOSES ALL THE TIME!! PLEASE TRY BEFORE HAVING TO BUY ANOTHER UNIT!!

I have the same problem. Best way to open the door is to hit the eject button and then bang lightly on the door using the remote controller. Works every time.

The DVD drawer will not open. I have spoken with other people and it appears it is broken. A new DVD player will have to be purchased. Too bad, I haven't owned this for very long and don't use it very often so I'm sure I will look for another brand.

Dvd tray wont open


Hello

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

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

3. 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.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

6. You might need to see a technician.

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.

When dvd is inserted "read" comes up on screen on


Not a lot to go on...
I would expect the unit says read for a while, then opens the drawer. This is an optic issue. Optics are $$$. If the drawer opens almost immediately, it is likely the drive's drawer sense switch needs cleaning.

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)

The DVD drawer will not open on the model TT 320


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please locate the DVD player’s manual eject button which is a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer. Now insert a stiff wire like a paperclip or safety pin into the hole and push gently to open the drawer. Now pull the drawer gently to open it. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling then you need to remove the label. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player and you need to have it serviced.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
