The unit will need to be disassembled, in some cases you might find a pin hole in front of the tray. Take a fine screwdriver or a needle and push in until you hear a click, the door should pop open. If that option in not available, remove the top lid of the machine, go to the dvd sector and carefully remove the dvd top, that should expose the disc for removal.

I found I could use the same belt - if I used the right lubrication material - in the right spots - gear shafts, or where it binds - it can bind in places - the motor is protected from stress when gears and movement is restricted - binding.

Therefore moves inward or outward or shuts down. Once its not binding or restricted it therefore becomes a belt missing - some shafts are plastic and can break - belt to tight - the motor is controlled by a sensor therefore there must be free enough movement to prevent belt or motor damage therefore has sensor to protect motor.

Dvd tray wont open


Hello

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

6. You might need to see a technician.

GOODLUCK

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

DVD drawer does not open when you push button to open DVD drawer


The most likely cause is damage, which should be seen with the eye. It could be a belt, broken cogs/teeth in the sledge mechansim, or a micro leaf switch bent out of place.

DISC DRAWER WILL NOT OPEN


First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

Good luck!

The DVD drawer will not open on the model TT 320


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please locate the DVD player’s manual eject button which is a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer. Now insert a stiff wire like a paperclip or safety pin into the hole and push gently to open the drawer. Now pull the drawer gently to open it. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling then you need to remove the label. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player and you need to have it serviced.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

DVD drawer will not open on Zenith ZHX-313....help???


hi friend,
Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire—such as a paperclip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs. If this is the case you should have it serviced or perhaps it is time for a new one.

I hope this helps.

thank u for using fixya

regards,
sivaranjini
