DVD door doesn't open when commanded

Dvd tray doesn't open when commanded

    I have 5 Panasonic DMR-E50s. I've lost three to this exact same problem.

    I do know that it's time to stop replacing them with used ones from Ebay, and see if I can get one or two repaired!

    This seems to happen when they hit about 5 years old. maybe 4. Doesn't seem to matter how much they are used, but I could be wrong about that.

Do you have a disc inside the dvd?
It is a minor mechanical/electrical fault probably the motor, if every other thing is working.Call a technician to open it.

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?


Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
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 CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

A disk is stuck in my Harmon Kardon player. The door will open and close and I can see the disk but cant' get it out.


turn on the unit and then tried to press the play button while the cd tray is in place. if doesn't work, unplug the dvd player then open the cover to access the internal part. look for a broken limit switch for cd tray mechanical assembly or check weather the cd not in proper place in the tray that is why an error occur.

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??


There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

Dvd player door does not open


Check to see if anythig is blocking the tray from opening. Also the tray motor or connections may be failing. I would open the case, remove and replace as many connections, one at a time, to make sure the connections were good. If the tray still does not move, then one or more than one component has failed. It could be an electronic component or the motor.

HP DVD 635 - auto tray open


no ghosts, you either have something jammed up inside of the drive which is keeping the door from closing properly all the way or the door itself is defective.

Either way you would be better off replacing the drive with a new dvd-rw cause the drive would be up to date and the problem with the opening door would go away.

Sony MW24FM1 either won't respond to DVD commands, or turn-off


Sounds like a bad power board. They have random meltdowns all too often. Usually the cause is an overheated transformer caused by power transistor short outs. Possibly sell it. Could get over $100 for it if sold online.

DVD tray won't open


Look for a small pin hole in the front of the DVD player. Insert a pin into the hole to open the tray.
Also try right clicking the DVD icon, click 'eject', then insert the pin into the hole.
If the door only opens partially, grab it and pull it open. Then insert a blank DVD into the tray, then see if the tray will open automatically with the disk in the tray. If so, then keep a DVD in the tray at all times.
