Yeah tell me about it! I have the same prob as you!

Do you think its DUST on the reading laser/lens?????

IF so...we gotta take this POS apart and blow on it (literally ! LOL).

How to do that, I dont know!

    Ok results:
    after dismantling top cover (5 screws)
    I just attempted to blow on the laser, (which I could not get the fancy paid technician from the big box stores would bother to do !)
    b lo and behold, there is a standard IDE PC DVD burner DRIVE in the unit. I was blown away! These zenith came up with a pretty clever high margin product. (i got mine for $112, when all i needed was a PC dvd burner for $30!)

    back to fault finding: accordingly there was NO open laser LED to blow dust off of! It is the component video cables that did the trick take them off, disconnect power, and if you like you can also just halfway prop off the front cover by pushing down on the 3 black colour tabs visible on top of front panel after you open top cover. This should "relieve" any stuck open button issues.

    And it worked for me.

    I didn't screw the top cover back on because it may need to be inspected again....to be continued.

DVD Tray Will Not Come Out


Download updated software for free on Panasonic Website then take a Paper Clip or other small object and insert it in the small hole in front of the machine and manually open the Disk tray. The Updates should take care of the Problem !

Tip

The CD/ DVD/ Blueray player tray keeps opening and closing!


First make sure the "Eject" button has not stuck while pushed-in. Clean the Tray window/opening and the inside of the front part of the tray. Then try to push the tray in a little bit when closed and drag it out while open! By the time dust gathers on the greasy tray rails resulting it not to open and close to the full extent. If it helps but the problem comes back, then you should open the box and clean the rails more thoroughly. Have a look at the switch that senses the tray state (open/closed) too. OBS! That is not the same as the "Eject" button! Switch placement is device model deppendant but it is usually placed on the stationary part of the disc-player unit under the front end of the tray in the middle!
Some units do eject a disk they don't recognize. That a player can't read a disk could be a result of incompatibility, dusty optical lens or faulty/old laser. You may clean the lens by using a "Cleaning disk" or blowing with an air spray(or a straw with your mouth) through the opening of the tray.
Good luck
Please rate positively if helpful, thanks!

I'm a first timer on FixYa. Also, I'm a novice (apprentice), so I sometimes...


1)just open the player
2)remove the rubber belt connecting the dc motor
3)you can open the disc tray now
4)if there are any dust particles or obstacles in the door way just clear them up by using the cloth(dry cloth preferred)
5)if you have any greasy material like vaseline,oil,etc then just put that in the door for easy movement of the disc tray

6)if needed change the rubber belt which is connecting the dc motor

7) just reconnect the rubber belt again and then just fit all screws that s all

what s more your player s disc tray will start ejecting like the previous how you were using..

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

Shows Open when closed and vice versa. Tries to


The tray orientation may have gotten messed up. Try opening the player and then unplugging it, closing the tray with the unit powered off and then turning it back on.

The DVD drawer won't open and close on our Go Video VR3845 combo. Help.


Straighten a paperclip. On the face of most disk players there is a small hole. Push the paper clip into the hole, and the disk tray should release. Pull the tray out to it's full extension. Power being on or off is immaterial. Hope this help.

DVD loading mechanism doesn't load completely that's why opens after attempt of loading.
You need to open top cover of unit and inspect loading belt might be lose, tray timing can be out of phase, some wire got stuck with tray while loading etc.
