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.

MHC-RG270 cd draw won't open


cd drawers often jam.
In the cd/dvd drawer you will see a small hole. Use a blunt pin or a straightened-out paper clip, insert it into the small hole and gently press. The drawer should then click open.

Try cleaning the plastic drive teeth/mechanism with a light drop of oil. Press the drawer button and it should then close. Press it again to see if the drawer opens as per normal.

If your cd drive plays a dvd as per normal but doesn't open when the button is pressed, continue using a blunt pin/paperclip. If the plastic open-close mechanism is worn or damaged there's very little you can do about it expect replace the entire drive.

Cant open dvd drawer


Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.

  1. Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
  2. Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
  3. Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
  4. Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
  5. Remove your disc from the drive.
  6. Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.

I can't open the cd drawer


If pressing the button on the CD/DVD drive does not open the drawer you can look for a small hole on the face of the drive, usually just below the drawer and about 1/3 of the way in from one side. Straighten out a paperclip and insert it into the hole. It should go in about a half inch then stop. Push a little harder and it will travel farther in and release the drawer.

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.

Won't open


Hello, look for a small hole somewhere near the centre of the cd drive drawer. Straighten out 2" of a paperclip, and insert the straightened end into the hole until you meet resistance.Push firmly and the drawer should begin to open.The more you push the paperclip in, the more the drawer will open.

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!

Lite on drive drawer is sticking. wont open


Sounds as if you may have a disk in there that's lodged between the tray and the inner mechnism. Use the release pinhole, and a small screwdriver or butter knife to pry open the tray, gently. You'll feel it releasing when you insert a straightened paperclip or other small object.
