Look inside the dvd player tray up and or behind the flap you will most likely find something inside there that a young child tried to "feed it" with the help of a flashlight and some small needle noise pliers remove the offending object. No need for unscrewing most likely depending on how much damage was done, with luck very little.

Fix 2004 nissan quest dvd player

most likely there is a DVD stuck inside. Take the unit out of the vehicle and look in the door where the DVD goes. If you find one
remove the cover to see if there is any obstruction preventing it's removal. If the DVD is off center try gently to move it back on center. When on center it will self eject.
hope this helps

Fix calibration of CD/DVD drive - no disc error

Many times people complain that their optical drive in their PC, XBox, PS, DVD Player, etc does not read any disc they put in to it. The cause of this is usually a dirty lens but can also be related to a drive whose laser is starting to weaken.

Most, not all, optical devices have one or more laser calibration screws. CD players have 1, DVD drives has 2 (one for Cd's and one for DVD's). Turning these screws in the correct direction with increments will resolve more disc read issue not solved by cleaning the lens. This article will explain how to do this on a PC optical drive which can be applied to other drives as well.

1) First thing you need to do is shut the PC off.

2) Next you will need to remove the unit from the PC. To do this you open your computer case and then remove the screws from the drive as-well-as the cables. Then pull the drive out.

3) Almost all units have 4 screws on the bottom of the unit close to the 4 corners. Remove these screws and move to the side.

4) This step requires a paper clip or stiff pin like object about 2 inches long. In the front of the drive you will see a little pin hole, usually on the right side. Put the paper clip into it and push. This will manually release the drive tray. Pull the drive tray all the way out til it stops.

5) Depending on the drive this step will vary but we will use the most common. On the left and right of the drive are clips for the face plate. Push those in and pull gently on the face play toward the tray. Then on top of the drive there is another clip. Press this one in. Once the face plate moves, pull it to the end of the drive tray.

6) Now you can remove the top cover, this may take a little work. Some drives have the top partially clipped on to the drive inner workings.

7) Once inside you will need to study your unit's circuit board to see how it comes off and remove it.

8) Now look at the laser device. Study the device on the top back and bottom and look for 1 screw for CD and 2 for DVD. The 2 screws will be right next to each other about a 1/4 inch in most units. These screws are small and require a tiny flat head to move. Some allow phillips. Since each unit is different I opted not to provide a picture. The screw will be close to a small trace or ribbon. This is my best way to tell you where it is located.

9) Most increase calibration by turning to the right (clockwise). If this doesn't work try going left (counter-clockwise). Turn the screw a 1/4 turn.

10) Place the board back on and place the top cover over it. The top cover is needed for testing because it contains the disc guide for spin-up.

11) Use some plastic to insulate the bottom of the unit and hook it to the PC then boot up. Test the drive. If it works shut off the PC and reassemble the unit. If not repeat the calibration process in #9 until the unit works.

If the calibration does not work or is already all the way up, the unit will need to be replaced. Typically you can get 1-2 tuneups per unit this way til you need a new laser or unit.

Good Luck

How to clean your CD/DVD player when the rollers get dirty.

Hello There,

Well most of us have had to face the annoying problem of CDs/DVDs not ejecting or not inserting in a car CD/DVD player. The easiest way of rectifying this problem is to follow these steps.

Items needed.
1. Spare CD/DVD.
2. Clean cotton Cloth.
3. Small flat screw driver (Optional)

1. Make sure that there is no CD/DVD in the player already.
2. If the payer is empty skip this step other wise empty the player by prying out the CD/DVD using the screw driver. Be sure not to exert too much force.
3. Turn off your player.
4. Wrap the cotton cloth around the spare CD/DVD so that both sides of the CD/DVD are covered by a single layer of cloth.
5. Hold this CD/DVD in your hand and insert it into your player and move it back and forth a few times.
6. When you will remove the CD/DVD you will see that the cloth is dirty. You may want to change the location of cloth to the clean side and repaeat step 5.
7. After doing all this your player should ejst and insert CD/DVDs just fine.

Hope the above tips help all of you guys.

* 2 Remove the 4x screws off COMBO on the sides and take off the DVD/VCR casing.
* 3 Look for the Tape which messed up with VCR transport mechanism ,try to release tape of the transport with your hand..

DVD disc tray will not open

Without knowing the model for the unit, it makes it a little difficult to troubleshoot, but usually the easiest way to get one of these to open up is to try resetting them. This is done on MOST DVD players by unplugging them for about 30 seconds while you hold the power button down to discharge any power that might be held in the unit, then plugging the unit back in and trying to eject it again. Keep in mind, that if the unit was moved (or even if something caused the unit to shift, like a person jumping near it) then the problem could be the dvd has become dislodged from the tray. Many dvd players will have a small hole on the front (usually below the tray) where if you insert a paper clip in about a half inch, will eject the tray part way, and then you can gently pull it out the rest of the way (making sure you do not keep pulling if you feel resistence as the dvd might have skipped out of the tray track). IF worse comes to worse and you don't have a warrenty on the unit, many dvd players can be opened by removing 1-2 screws from the left and right sides, and possibly 1-4 screws from the back of the unit (look around the edges, the screws near the ports on the back usually holds those ports in place and do not need to be removed to take the case off). Once the screws are removed you would pull back and up on the case to open the dvd player. Keep in mind, this voids a MFG warranty. Once the case is off you should be able to see the dvd and remove it unless you have a cheap dvd player which has an enclosed drive. Remove the dvd and with the case still off, plug the power in (DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE WHILE THE POWER IS PLUGGED IN) and try hitting the eject button on the front. IF it ejects now, you should be good to go, just put the case back on. IF it doesn't eject, then your motor is probably bad (or something is blocking the track) and it is usually safer/easier at this point to just go buy a new dvd drive.

DVD Player Won't TUrn

If the unit does not see the door switch (the door where the disks are inserted) it will power off after a few seconds. Under the door there is an adjustment for the door switch. It's about an inch back from the front face of the unit and - this is tricky - it's behind a small plastic cover. If you push with your finger you will feel a soft spot and will see the edges of plastic. The plastic piece is about a quarter inch high and less than an inch long. After removing the plastic cover you'll see the adjustment screw. Loosen the screw a little bit and you'll be able to slide the screw (which is attached to the switch). You won't see the switch, but sliding the screw left or right (it's in an oblong hole) will adjust the switch position. Change the position until the unit powers up and stays on.

Dvd reading

I had the same thing happen to a used DuraBrand 7" Portable DVD Player. Check and see if the laser transport is locked in at the top of the track -- which would be in position to read the outer edge of the DVD. The laser transport gets locked into this position and you get "no disc" error messages.

I removed the bottom of the DVD player -- a matter of seven screws -- and moved the laser transport by hand nearer to the center post of the DVD turntable. This cured the problem and my DuraBrand is working fine now.

I have no idea what makes the laser transport move to the extreme outer position and get locked there, but this solution works. Good luck with your own.
