Re: disc tray frozen in closed position
It sounds like a mechanical problem with your CD-ROM. Most of these devices can sense when a slight pressure is put on an open tray, which causes the tray to close. This is not the preferred method of closing the tray, but a design feature to retract if the tray is pushed instead of the button on the drive.
It seems that your drive is experiencing pressure when the tray is opened, causing it to malfunction. It could also be that the "bouncing" you mentioned is causing it to rebound into the auto retraction area. Either way, it is a mechanical malfunction and you should return it if it is still under warranty.
Hope that helps

Hi friend. Try this: Press the power button on the Toshiba DVD player remote. Press the
"Open/Close" button to eject the disc tray. Remove any disc that might
be on the tray before proceeding. Press the following keys on the remote in this order: 2,4,0,3,9,6,0. Press the "9" key on the remote. Press the "Open/Close" button to close the disc tray. Press the power button to turn the Toshiba DVD player on.
According to your description, it seems that the disc tray is not loading into it porperly i thinks. Just do one thing. Without any disc in tray, close the tray either by using remote control or the front panel opn/close button of the system. If the tray closes first, and then reopens again without any command, make sure that the disc tray mechanism does not working properly, and the disc is not loading into it in place.
If this is alright, place a disc in the tray, set close, and push the tray with your finger slightly as it closes, and see whether it loads properly and play the disc. If so, loading belt inside the loading mechanism is worn out, ans should be replaced. In most cases, this may be the fault. Check it.
You can do the repair work, if you have some knoledge in electroncis, and its mechanical function. If not, get it repaired by an experienced service technican. Most of them can do this work, as it is simply a mechanical one. OK.
Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!
My player worked fine couple of days ago, then last night when powered up, message was "load" and it stayed like this forever, and tray open would not work. Tried everything, nothing worked. Left unplugged from power for 24 hrs and bingo everything worked as should. I suspect that the unit is still trying to load info from last disc which I stopped in the middle of some bonus material, even though the disc was no longer in the tray.
To convert this player to Multi-Region
1. Open the disc tray.
2. Place a region 1 disc in the tray, but don't close it.
3. Press the buttons 0, 1, 2 and then 3 on your remote control in order, one at a time.
4. Press the play button on either your remote or the player.
To return this player back to Region 2 only and its factory default settings
1. Open the disc tray.
2. Press the Zoom button on your remote control.
3. Press the Retu To return this player to Region 2 only (alternative method) rn button on your remote control.
4. Your player should now go into Standby mode.
5. Press the Power button on your remote control.
i). Open the disc tray
ii). Place a region 2 disc in the tray, but don't close it
iii). Press the buttons Return and then Play on your remote control in order, one at a time
1) Put a compatible DVD in the tray. (I have noticed that I must format DVD+R discs, but others are formatted okay for recording -- such as DVD-R and DVD RW)
2) Close the tray.
3) Make sure the player is set to HDD and not to DVD. It will indicate HDD, DVD, or SD on the LCD screen.
4) Using the remote press the "functions" button.
5) Select "copy" from the menu when it appears.
6) You will now see the list of programs you have recorded to the HDD. Highlight the one you want to copy and press "Enter" on the remote.
7) I think there are two confirmation screens that come up, press start or continue or whatever it says.
8) My recorder generally takes about 14 minutes at high speed to copy a two-hour program. If the program is longer than 2- hours, you must divide it into tow or more shorter segments for more than one DVD.
9) If you want to select several shorter programs (not to exceed 2-hours combined) highlight the programs individually pressing the PAUSE button on the remote. This places a check mark next to each of the programs. When you finish, press the enter button on the remote and go through the confirmations screens again.
10) If the DVD is nor rewritable, it will automatically run the "finalize" program. It takes about 3 minutes and runs after recording. This formats the DVD so that it can be played in non-Panasonic players. If it is a DVD-RW, they you must finalize it manually if you want to watch it on other types of players.
