    Buying a new one is not a realistic solution. I can hear the motor trying to open so it must be a relatively simple mechanical problem.



    I have removed the cover to see if I could see any problem but it still would not open when I tried the button again.

    I can hear the motor running and trying to open so it must be a reasonably simple mechanical problem

  • mcelhinneyl Aug 31, 2010

    "Check it out" is hardly a solution for someone needing expert assistance

  • mcelhinneyl Aug 31, 2010

    I do not think it is a belt problem. I hear the motor running and the "click" which occurs just before a disk is ejected normally but something is apparently blocking it from coming out.

    I have dismantled the unit but could not find anything wrong. When I reassembled it, it now works when there is no DVD installed but sticks in if there is a DVD in place!

    I can make it eject manually with a DVD in place by jiggling the cogs and whatever with a small screwdriver!!

Take the mechanism out of the dvd player (leave the data and power cables attached) - the motor and the gears moving the tray is located at the bottom of it, in the front. Check that the belt that connects the motor to the first reducing cog is still there, that the cog is still meshed with the next one and that the lever of the tray is still on the longitudinal screw.
You can move the tray by hand - take it out half way and see if when you plug the player in the mains the tray mover by itself to close position. If it doesn't then the gears on the tray mech are out of position - you can dismantle the entire optical unit to fix it. If the gears are damaged or the belt is missing then the mechanism is unfixable. The latest players use standard pv optical units, put a new one in.

Hello sir, hi!, the dvd tray is controlled by a single motor connected to a shaft/pulley where a belt is spun to roll a series of mesh gear to move the tray forward... well something like that, usually the problem is the belt, its wormed out, replacing this belt will tighten the pulley making the tray to eject. You need to disassemble the unit and get to the belt to replace it

    Also a good solution.

  • Jerry Umali Sep 29, 2010

    To add, check also the cog that are meshed with the CD tray, the cog is the pinion gear and the tray is the rack gear. physically check them, make sure their teeth are not broken, else you need a new one.

There are a couple things to look at here:

1. is the dvd stuck
2. do you hear it trying to eject?

If the cd is stuck then unplug the unit pop off the cover, then put the cover back on then power the unit.

if that does not work basically if you do not hear anything like the motor trying then you could have a bad motor or bad pico fuse.

Best thing to due if this needs repair because of the cost involved just to buy a new one.

These die over age,USE and other matters.

Let me know if you have questions?

otherwise please do click the accept button for my efforts.

    sounds like a band broke on the eject gear just under the cd tray and if so it will need a new one. Check it out!



    let me know

  • Grand Canyon Tech
    Grand Canyon Tech Aug 31, 2010

    Got to remember the expert is not there in your point of view so we need you eyes to see if the band did not break or slip, A expert works in a shop where he gets paid X amount of cash to fix things where the device is in his face, So if you do nto like the verbage check it out, I do not know what other Do it yourself instructions i can give ya.



    Thanks

    Most of this is



    Do, SEE, Do and report



    this is how fixya works, Check it out is not bad verbiage, from a tech.



    We work in shops where these broken items come in for repair, We work on our own time here at fixya to help people for $6 bucks maybe even less. We as experts are not hired at fixya we are not employed or otherwise, A expert does use words the end user might not understand so we try to "laymans terms" for you. If you offended by check out the band under the tray, then I apologize.



    Thanks for at least allowing me to try and help you.

    I really do not think anything is blocking it from ejecting unless a kid put a penny in it "possiable". This belt is under the tray if you would examine that it cold be worn or lost its elastic.. Some times they get dry over heat dry meaning basically if you where to stretch it more it would break, this is most common in these types of situations.



    But i am still here welcoming your comments.

i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.9acead3.jpg

My dvd does not play in laptop due to digital copyright problem. what can i do to fix this? no dvd wil play


Copy-protected DVDs prohibit people from copying them, which is piracy. Copying a DVD to sell or even to give away is illegal. You can play copy-protected DVDs in a standalone DVD player or in your computer's DVD drive, as long as your computer's software is up to date. These DVDs will play the same as DVDs that are not copy protected

Press the "Eject" button on your DVD player to open the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the tray, and push the "Eject" button to close the tray. Press the "Play" button on your DVD player, and the DVD will play. b> On a DVD Drive on a Computer Press the "Eject" button on your DVD drive to eject the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the DVD drive, and push the tray in to close it. Click the "Start" tab on your computer's home screen to open the "Start" menu. Click on "My Computer" to open it. Click on the DVD drive to open the DVD. Click on "Autoplay" to play the DVD.

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD


Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

Unable to open the door of the dvd --when you press the eject button to open the slot---the door does not open---everything else works


Quick trick

First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.

Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.


if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.

The Disc Tray Will Not Open And/Or There Is A Disc Stuck In The Player. spacer.gif Some DVD Players manufactured prior to 2003 have a Dealer Lock or Child Lock function. This will prevent the panel buttons from operating.

This function is activated by pressing the STOP button on the front panel
and the POWER button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds in the power on state. Repeating this sequence releases the dealer lock. When the dealer lock in activated, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the display.

If this does not resolve your problem there may be an error with in the player. To resolve this try the following these steps:
  1. Unplug the DVD player from the electrical outlet and leave it unplugged for thirty seconds.
  2. Plug the DVD player back in to the electrical outlet, but do not turn the DVD player on.
  3. With the DVD player off, press the [Open/Close] button on the front of the DVD player. The home theater should power on when you press the [Open/Close] button and eject the tray.
The second option worked for me...

Locked dvd tray.


To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears.   The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button. 

 

To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.
