DVD Drawer won't open-- paperclip method isn't working

DVD Drawer won't open-
When I press OPEN, I can hear the motor to the drawer, but nothing happens. The paperclip method is not working. It seems like a spring or belt broke or fell off. How do I fix this?

Unplug it. You'll have to open the cover. Then you may have to remove the tray assembly from the frame. On the bottom you will be able to access the belt. If you're luck, it might be in another location on top or off to the side.

How do I unlock it?


If a button will no longer allow you to open the sliding drawer for a DVD or CD player, there is a small hole on the front or side of the unit about the size of a paperclip. Use a straightened paperclip push it in and you can manually open and eject the drawer.

CAN'T OPEN DRAWER


Hello
There is a motor along with belt to control the disc tray for every DVD player. If this belt or motor [loading motor] has trouble, the tray won't come out or get into. Check these for perfectness.

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??


There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

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.

The DVD door will not open when the button is pressed


Hi,


Please check the bellow instructions:-
Turn off your DVD player. 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.
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.
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.


Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.

DISC DRAWER WILL NOT OPEN


First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

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.

Good luck!

Ihave a Cyderhome dvd player, and i cannot get it to play.The green light on but cannot get the tray to open,what can i do ?


You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.

The DVD drawer will not open


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.

Akai DVD recorder tray will not open


I am pursuing the exact problem above. I have found a not so hi tech solution. I firmly rap on the top above the disc drawer. This is while Close is being displayed and the drawer is in. If you hear some spinning and load displays it should now work. It may be back to cycling again on the next ejection though.
Technically I figure it may be a sticky magnetic reed switch or what ever they use to detect the drawer position. Mine displays either open or close when it starts to cycle.
