This video shows how to fix the tray of a CD or DVD drive when it does not eject ... I have a phillips cd-rom drive and it won't open, I checked the belt and its tight, so I .... Dvd Player Sticking Door Repair And Lens Cleaning.
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door
if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive
tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray
pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD
drive is faulty and needs replacing.
The tray needs a new motor with a new pulley that does not slip on its shaft and get a new belt too. It is easy to pull the dvd tray unit out of a GO VIDEO DVD+VCR machine to replace the motor with new pulley on it and the belt should be renewed too.The motor NOW may run only to push out the tray but it will not pull it in to LOAD the DVD or CD. This is what I found after troble-shooting the function. From Jim, and I need the same things. Can anyone tell me where I might buy those idems? firstname.lastname@example.org
You have to check the try loading belt of you dvd. if the belt is loose or broken the will not be ejected. you can see only OPEN in the display. You can simply check is it related to belt. Power on the dvd player and then press the eject button. Place you ear on the top of the player and listen is there is any humming sound (sound of motor running). If you hear the sound then the belt have some problem.if there is no sound then the problem is related to the electronic part which drives the motor. if so you have to change the mother board of you dvd player. Because the all the parts in it are smd( surface ***** device) also the availability of the part is very rare. Also you have to consult the sony authorizedservicing center to repair the same.
If you here the sound then you Can rectify the problem by replacing the belt. Normally you cant see the belt from the top of the mechanism. Because it is beneath the tray. you can see it only if the tray is in eject position.
Remove the top cover of your dvd player. As it is sony dvd player you can eject the tray manually. for that watch the bottom of your dvd player. You can see a slot closed by a plastic strip just bottom of the mechanism. Pull out the plastic strip. Watch through the slot. you can see a Noach which you can move manually to the left and right. put a screwdriver in it and pull the Noach to the side. the try will get ejected. Not fully but partially. You have to pull out the tray fully manually.
If you closely look at the inner end side of the try then you cn see a motor and belt. if the belt is loose it will be in there in the motor pulley and in the wheel. if its broken broken then you have to find it where it . Take the belt as sample and bring a new one. you will get the belt at any of the electronic spare parts shop near you. Put the new belt in the position. inset the tray by pushing it in to inside slowly. power on the dvd player and the press the eject button.
Open the drive (dont break it). Eject the tray, under the tray you should see a small belt drive. Replace the belt with a rubberband of approximatly the same size (a little smaller wont hurt). Re-assemble the drive and it should eject fine. Lite-On drives seem to go through these belts pretty quick, I have fixed hundreds this way. Never had one I fixed come back for the same problem.
Ok here is a fix that worked for me. I don't know how long it will last and it's only a partial fix but my unit wouldn't open or shut and I'd come close to throwing it out of the window. Now it seems ok.
Basically the problem lies in the fact that the DVD unit is cheap and nasty in these machines. It is made of poor quality plastic and the mechanism for raising DVDs into place relies on just plastic pegs running down plastic grooved. There are no bearings and no low friction materials. As a result, the mechanism motor is too weak and the unit fails in two ways. 1) It doesn't close the drawer enough to allow the spindle to pass through the centre of the DVD and 2) When the DVD is in place, the motor doesn't have enough power to separate the magnets that hold the spindle to the locking disk above the DVD (sorry if I don't know the correct names for the parts).
The solution to the first problem is to lightly grease the tracks with a silicon grease but MAKE SURE YOU DON'T GET GREASE ON THE DRIVE belt. This is at best a partial fix... I still occasionally have to help my drawer go all the way in with a gentle push.
The result to the second problem is weaken the magnet.
1.Unplug and remove the casing of the unit. First tip is remember where every screw goes... there are a dozen different types.
2. The DVD unit is a black plastic box with a white wheel on the top. Remove the 2 cm wide metal frame that goes over the front (screws in base and in the PCB boards next to the on/off switch and eject button. Again keep an eye on the screws.
3. Remove the two screws on the plastic lid to the front of the DVD unit. There are two black tabs on the lid that you will have to push with a screwdriver to click it out. You will now see the drivespindle and on the lid, you will see the white locking disk.
4. While you have the unit open, clean it and lightly oil it. You can remove the other half of the lid by pulling the two tabs located on the sides. Make sure that you clean and wipe with oil the white mechanism at the front of the unit.
5. Now for the magnets... There are three tabs on the top side of the white locking disk. Gently push these to one side and the two halves will fall apart. Memorise how it goes together.
6. Two washers will drop out. One is a magnet and the other isn't. find out which is the magnet using a screwdriver.
7. Now the silly bit. Throw away the washer that is NOT magnetic and onlly put the magnetic one back. Reassemble. This reduces the grip of the locking disk on the spindle.
I hope this helps. It would appear that Philips have not come to the rescue on this because it would require them to admit that they use shoddy parts. Good Luck - Dave
open up your machine then check the cd tray there is a motor that drives the tray. between the motor there are gears which rolls the tray in and out. check properly you will see a belt '' blader kind of'' plz replace with brand new one it will work fresh coz if the belt is worn out then it means motor can not pull the gears to enable opening and clossing of your cd tray
