  • Anonymous Sep 17, 2008

    The DVD cycles on and off; only VG1 flashing on the display.

    On and off, on and off. VCR ejects, but DVD will not.

  • RickyG77 Sep 17, 2008

    I plug in the machine, "VG1" flashes on the diplay, then "oo oo oo,"

    the DVD drive cycles on and off, then the machine shuts down and

    the whole process repeats.

    Only the VCR eject button works.

    Not even the on/off button

**I noticed this solution on another posting & copied it here.**

The loading deck is either out of alignment or a piece of it is broken. They can be difficult to align if you are not familiar with the operation of the the deck or have the service lit. with the alignment proceedure. Good luck. Almost forgot, I see alot of units that have been moved with a disk in them and the disk will slide out of its holder and become lodged, locking up the mech, if this is the case carefully remove the disk and try the mech again.

The DVD Player won't Open/Close and there is a DVD inside. How do I force it open?


Hello,

The DVD player jammed, that is why it is not opening.

To get it to open and close, you will have to unplug the player, then unscrew the screws around it. Take off the cover then you will have access to the disc tray. Then you can plug the player and press open, it will attempt to open but stop, then you can try to apply a little force in pushing the disc tray towards the open direction, it will sit properly and open up.

You can as well unscrew the disc tray and remove your disc, then you press the open button and sit the disc tray properly it will open freely and easily after then.

Take care and good luck

Hi, the dvd on my recorder stayes ejected? It will close but then will eject straight away? What can I do? Cheers.


Hello,

The fault is not from the disc, it is from the player.

The disc tray is actually malfunctioning. Which is as a result of a fault on the mechanism that is controlling the opening and closing of the disc tray.

Another fault might be that the button that controls the disc tray might be stuck.

test if it is the button.
  1. Unplug the player from the power source,
  2. plug it back,
  3. turn it on,
if it opens without you pressing the open button, then the fault is from the button.

check it for any irregularity.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the cover of the player,
  3. carefully force the front control panel open from the sides,
  4. then check for any damages,
  5. change the open button and it will be okay again.
test if it is the disc tray
press the open button, if it opens closes continuously.
then there is a problem with the mechanism that controls the open and close of the disc tray.

to fix this,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the back cover of the player,
  3. look to the left side of the player and you will see a mechanism that controls the tray,
  4. change the mechanism with a new one.
after doing that, the player will be in good condition again.

take care

Dvd tray will not open or play


Hello,

The reason your player keeps reading a disc and do not play is because the the disc tray is not sitting the disc properly on the lens.

The disc tray is faulty, the mechanism that controls the opening and closing of the tray is damaged and needs repair.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover of the player.

You will see a mechanism by the opening of the tray that controls the disc tray.

Get a replacement mechanism and change it. Mostly the rubber slacks and does not control the tray properly.

Changing the mechanism will solve the problem.

Take care

My Akai dvd player shows "no disc" after loading a dvd. The tray sometimes makes a grinding noise when opening and closing as well.


Hello,

The reason the player is not reading the disc and showing no disc is either because the disc is not sitting properly on the lens from the disc tray, or the lens is weak or the lens is dirty.

To test if it is the disc tray, open the cover of the player with the appropriate screwdriver, place a disc directly on the tray and apply a little pressure on the tray, if it reads the disc, then it is the tray.

All you have to do is to adjust the disc tray and screw it tightly.

To test if the lens is weak, try several DVD disc on it,and test them also on another tested ok player, if it does not work on your player and works on other players, then the lens is weak.

to fix this, get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover and unscrew the disc tray.

You will gain access to the lens, carefully disconnect the lens and replace it with a new lens. then it will be ok.

To test if it is just that the lens is dirty, clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test a DVD to see if it will work.

Take care.

My DVD tray will not open, and with no disc inside the display says 'reading' constantly. Any thoughts?


The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

DVD tray will not open.


Hello,

The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.

H03 Error & Disc Tray Error


Most likely the tray for your player came out of aligment, this happens when someone pushes on the tray to close it, instead of using the "Open/Close" button, you need to take it to somebody to realign the disc tray.
