I can not get the tray door to open. When I push the button to open the door to insert disc the tray will not open. It says trying to read disc and says no disc is in the tray. I mannualy open the door and see a tiny black belt broken inside. Can you give me some advice of what to do and where to find a replacement belt. Also, Is this easy to fix yourself?

Look for a small hole in the tray a the front and if you have one, insert a straightened out paper clip and push until the drawer opens. If there is no hole, insert a butter knife and gently try the door open until you can pull it.
You may have a stuck DVD in the player. Most DVD players have a small pin type hole in the front where you can inser a paper clip to manually open the tray. Otherwise, you have to remove the cover of the drive to actually see what is happening. support hp com Maybe this link will be of some assistance.
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door
if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive
tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray
pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD
drive is faulty and needs replacing.
f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or
wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean,
lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the
owner's manual. God bless you
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.
Must used a philip screw driver take out all the screws to the dvd player.Must take the DVD player aparts.Take aparts out the dvd player guard shield to the dvd drive to take out the dvd dic or dics out.Don't push the open button any more,the disc or discs is jamming ur dvd door tray.Will burn out ur disc tray motor,if u keep trying push the open button,trying opening it that way.
Try inserting a pin through the hole beneath the pray. Push the eject button and then insert. If you can't find such a hole, push the eject button and tap hard on the top of the tray twice or thrice. If it is not still working, check for any loose connection.
First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.
Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.
Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
there is a small hole in the front of the tray that will accept a straightened paper-clip. gently insert the clip and the tray should release. if the cd/dvd disc is dislodged from being flat in the tray, it may not come out. you might need to open the cover and manipulate the disc to get it back flat in the tray. a good first test is to see if the disc plays. if it does, it is in the tray correctly and should be easily released with the paper clip. the try might work after you release it. another possible first try would be to gently push inward on the tray after telling it to release. if there is extra tension on the tray it could cause the mechanism to not release. freeing the tension on the tray could be all that you need to get the 'unlock' to release. (kinda like trying to open a door when someone is pushing it very hard against the lock mechanism. it wont be able to move). good luck mark
Same problem. I finally took the cover off and discovered this is how it works: When a disc is inserted, a machine part comes up from underneath the disc tray and goes through the disc hole. It then ( by way of a magnet in that part) attaches to a fixed metal part above the disc tray, thus holding the disc in place while it is spinning. However, and I don't know why, the magnet is so strong that what happens is when you push the OPEN button with no disc in there, the mechanism is not strong enough to pull the magnet away from the metal part, and the tray cannot move forward (open). I did discover that it WILL open if there is a disc in the tray, so I always make sure I have one in there before I close the door, otherwise I have to stick a knife in there and manually push the magnet piece away from the other piece. It's a design that probably sounded good on paper but.....
