Question about Philips DivX Ultra HTS6500/37 Theater System
First, I commend you for taking the initiative and tackling this yourself. Every device that loads through a slot has a device that prevents a disk from being loaded when there is already a disk loaded. This is the device (the two pins) that you are describing. What you need to do is disassemble the unit again and while reassemling check at each step to make sure the pins are out of the way (usually down).
The pins are usually connected to the loading mechanism itself by gears, so it may be necessary to manually turn a gear or belt (very gently!) to get the mechanism to a position to accept a disk. Most likely this won't work by itself, but it might. If it doesn't, then separate the pin mechanism from the loading mechanism, get the loading mechanism into a position to accept a disk. That is, not in the position where the disk is being "read" by the machine, and put the two mechanisms back together, of course with the pins out of the way, and try it out. It may take a time or two to get the gears in just the right position to work right, but you seem to have the ability.
I hope this helps. If not, please post what happens, and i'll do what ever else I can to help.
