You probably have a misalignment of the gears, or a bad mechanical switch or optical switch. If you would like to inquire about having your Pioneer repaired, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.BTW, I worked for Pioneer in a technical support position for audio.
I think that ; somehow someone bumped the unit and dislodged a DVD from the tray.. thus impeding the opening mechanism as well as the turntable (the unmeshing gears). I would unplug the unit and remove the screws holding the top cover on , and take a look at the tray . once thats done , let us know how this is going.
remove thepower socket from the wall,press constant on open/close of the unit,plugin the powersocket to overule the programs !
the tray will open
the best way is to do this with aid of a second person.
wish you resultsas it solves my identical problem
If the door will not close or go to home posistion then one or two things has happened, 1. the Unit is out of timing squence and needs to be retimed, this happens when someone pulls on the door while it is opening just one gear tooth out of sequence will cause malfunctioning. 2. The elevator or clamper is not open so the tray can not slide between the spindle motor and the clamper assembly, this usually comes from either a bad or weak belt on the load assembly or worn gear on the elevator or clamper assembly. Open the unit and close the door to check function the disc, should slide between these parts to play, if the door is not closing then you will see why or what is not working or blocking the tray.
I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck email@example.com
Very specific alignment procedures.Tray must be removed along with front panel.Gears must be reset for proper timing.This is not a simple fix unless you know proper procedures and timing points.Best to have it serviced.
