    I got the same problem. The door cannot close completely. I opened up the case, but couldn't see which mechanical system is wrong. The suggested solution is too general and I don't have any clue how to fix it. Anybody have more detailed fix on this specific problem?

The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Original fault tray would not stay closed,opened up 460 case and then removed 2 screws on rear of drive. unplug 2 ribbon cables.
unscrew 1 screw in micro switch pcb rotate and spay cleaner into switch and rock switch several times until the reading across switch is 0 ohms before you start you will find the switch has about 2.5 k of resistance across it witch is too high.
as long as you have about 4ohms it will work.

Make sure there is no disc in the tray of the player and it is closed ( tray ).

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?


hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Note:
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

Disc tray on Insignia BRDVD player will not open. Any help would be appreciated. Press the open/close button and display says either open or close. The tray does not eject though.


the disc is probably stuck out of the tray and stopping it from opening. unplug, and you should be able to pry open the front case and pull the tray out.

Stuck disc (similar problem)


In the front of the tray there a small whole, try bending a paperclip straight with a small hook at the end and careully stivk it in that whole. Than gently try pulling it back thus opening the tray. Remove your disc and do not put any other disc in it but try to close the tray by using the button. If it closes, try to reopen it.

Check your disc for any dirt or perhaps some remains of stickers.
Be carefull with homemade discs, they might have a stickered label on it which can cause problems such as getting your tray stuck and not opening anymore ;-) .

Dvd do not loads


Our started doing the same thing about a week after the warranty ran out. It has to do with the alignment of the discs being loaded. here's a work-around that works for us:
Open the tray
Choose which disc you are going to watch and use the Change Disc button to push the selected disc to the back (ie, if you want to view Disc 1, discs 3 and 4 will be visible in the tray).
Look down the center holes of discs 3 and 4... manually move your tray left-or-right to align the holes with the tray.
Push the Direct Play button on the top right of the unit for your disc of choice (Disc 1 using the example above).

hope that helps... I've searched for a while and played around with the unit (with and without the cover on) trying to figure out a way to re-align the tray, but no luck.
