Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR
Screen says "Load" but tray wont open
Hello All. Well, I just finished troubleshooting the same problem of one of my customers units. At first I thought it was the tray contacts but they were good. What I noticed with the cover off and the shield for the laser removed...BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK IT TAKING IT OFF ANF DON"T LOOK AT THE LASER...that if I moved the DVD motor, the motor that turns the DVD...it has a rubber wheel on the shaft...that the tray would open. The trouble was intermittent but I also noticed that the wheel would move when pressing the OPen button. I therefore concluded that the motor somehow was in the circuit to open the tray. So, I took the motor out CAREFULLY and on the end opposite the wheel there are two small holes. These holes appear to be access holes for assembly and to hold the brush contacts away from whatever they use for a commutator. At first i was going to disassemble the motor but changed my mind. I have contact cleaner spray and some old Color Tuner Cleaner spray from the old days of mechanical TV tuners. I gave each hole a small shot of spray and turned the wheel. Careful not to contaminate the rubber on the wheel as it is what grips the DVD and pushes it against the white nylon bearing. Voila, the tray opens and closes and the Load display is no more. As I said, be careful. If you are unsure...let someone who understands this stuff do it. Ed
