I think that ;
somehow someone bumped the unit and dislodged a DVD from the tray..
thus impeding the opening mechanism as well as the turntable (the unmeshing gears).
I would unplug the unit and remove the screws holding the top cover on , and take a look at the tray .
once thats done , let us know how this is going.

Under heavy load, driver slips, makes grinding noise. How to fix?


Sounds like the gears are worn out. Not worth fixing. But if you buy a drill that uses the same battery pack, now you will have a spare battery and charger.

Check the rails the paper tray sits upon. see if the one on the right side is damaged or dislodged. You didn't say if the noise happened when you printed from the 2nd paper tray.

Technika tv


It sounds that the problem to your TV is with its DVD loading tray. A pure mechanical fault indeed. Not loads the disc properly to its seating. A motor fault, or a gear wheel fault, or a leaf switch fault could be. Anyway, you have to take the DVD mechanism out from the TV, to get the actual problem could be resolved. Really this is a semi skilled work. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case.

WHEN I GO TO WATCH A DVD IT TAKES THE DVD IN THEN THERE IS A SQUEELING NOISE AND AFTER A WHILE THE DVD GETS EJECTED


The noise indicates that the DVD is not loaded fully so that the head unit is not coming up for scanning. You will need to remove the mechanism and check the drives, gear and belt , so as to see if there is any friction for slipping. If so reset and try.
make sure that the head loads up so as the optical head comes closer for the scan. Now clean the optical unit with a dry earbud and try with a DVD.

The tray on my DVD player won't open. When I press open/close, it just makes a whirring sound.


Failure of the loading mechanism, possible that the drive is struck or the belt is worn out ,. You will need to remove the tray mechanism to check and confirm. The motor seems to work as there is noise but the drive is not working , possible belt slipping or gear slipping.

My LG dv490h DVD player has its DVD drawer jammed open. When I press the button to close, it goes 20% of the way in and stops. My one year old pulled the drawer open this morning. Have taken the cover off...


The DVD tray has come off the alignment or settings which make it come OFF the mechanism. So you will need to push back the drawer back to the set position and this might be possible only after the loading mechanism is pulled out. The loading gear would have meshed with the loading drawer at mid way -due to the pull--and so it connecting only half way.
If mechanically minded you can remove the tray mechanism and reset the tray to the gear position in the DVD play/stop position.

WF20D4 model of Symphonic TV DVD combo - Dvd tray will not open. When the open buttonis pushed, you can hear a sounds as if there is a gear out of place and it is trying to opwn, but it just will not. Do...


If your DVD tray has a little hole near the bottom like the CD/DVD tray of a typical PC, then
carefully and gingerly insert the end of a paper clip or toothpick into the hole to release the tray.
I think you've correctly diagnosed the sound you're hearing - the transport mechanism has slipped a moving part but the little motor is still alive.
