DVD Eject tray stuck

The disk tray won't open. There is no disk stuck in there. When I press the eject button, the words "load disk" light up and I can hear the tray trying to eject, but it never does. Then it will say "no disk" after a few seconds and not do anything else. THe DVD eject tray is stuck on my system as well. I tried putting in a VHS and then hitting open and that didn't work. And I can't seem to find a system reset button. Any help is very welcome! thanks!

I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

Power it down and if you look very carefully, near the eject button is a hole.Insert a straightened paper clip and the drawer will open. Unless it is a Mac.

I have a GPX D200B DVD Player and cant get the Disk Tray to open.


unplugged the dvd player and then re plugged, power on then press the eject button. if still the loading tray won't open, at this time you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the loading tray mechanical assembly. then check for an stuck up or broken rail plastic loading assembly it was installed drive by the loading motor.if ok, check the limit switch might not get contact which the processor not turn on the supply for the motor.

I put a disk in and there was already one in now it wont eject


The disc tray does not eject when the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.
    IMPORTANT: The disc tray will not open while a disc is loading; this is normal operation. If this is the case, wait until the disc is finished loading before pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button to open the disc tray.
  1. Make sure the disc tray is not locked; if necessary,
  2. Perform a power reset.
    1. Press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds until the BD player turns off.
    2. After the BD player turns off, press the POWER button again to turn it back on.
  3. Attempt to open the disc tray by pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button on the front of the BD player.
  4. If the disc tray still does not open and a disc is stuck inside, follow the steps below to force the disc tray to eject:
    1. Turn off the BD player.
    2. Turn the BD player back on.
    3. Immediately after POWER ON is displayed, press the STOP button on the front of the player. IMPORTANT: Only use the STOP button on the front of the BD player. The remote control cannot be used for this operation.
      NOTES:
      • The disc tray should eject and the BD player will turn off. If it does not eject, repeat steps A-C.
      • It may be necessary to press the STOP button in step C two or three times.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required

Will not eject disk.


Almost always, your described problem could be caused by:
  • stuck disc;
  • fault in the load/eject mechanism.

It it were a stuck disc, the correct fix would be to open the unit and manually extract the erring disc. However, there may be possible workarounds:
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • press and hold the eject button while plugging in; or
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • invert the unit (bottom side up);
  • plug back the Apex and quickly unplug soon as you hear the mechanical noise start;
  • revert to normal position and try ejecting; or
  • while still in the inverted position, press and hold the eject button while plugging in but must unplug quickly even before the tray starts to move out.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Pioneer DVL v888 disk tray will not open. There is a disk in it.


There isn't a way to open it by hand without removing the cover.

As for fixing the tray, there might be a few reasons why its not working. When you press one of the eject buttons, do you hear the usual whirring of motors? If you do and the tray still does not open, then the problem may be a broken rubber belt near the front.

If you don't hear the whirring of motors, then try playing the disk. If the disk does not play either, then the disk loading mechanism is out of sync and may require manually resetting it. This is accomplished by carefully pulling the spring loaded carriage upwards or downwards until it responds to the play button. Be very careful not to touch any of the exposed electrical components and capacitors, electrical shock may occur.

Ps2 cd tray does not open and the eject button light flashes


This is the tray getting stuck on the PS2 shell/casing. I can fix mine as it does the same thing but I tap it one quick time after I hit the eject button and it will usually open. Don't try to pry the tray open or this will make the problem worse.

A disk is stuck in the tray of my sony DVP-NS305 player. The disk tray will not respond to either the hand piece or the button on the player itself. The word "Locked" comes up on the display. How...


Unplug power cord, and whenb you plug power back and restart the DVD, keep pressing repeatedly the eject button on the unit.

Do this a couple of times.

If it does not work you will need to take apart the unit to take out the disk. In this case consider calling a qualified technician if you are not sure about how to do it.

DVD Eject tray stuck


Your problem is more than likely mechanical. There is a belt that makes connection between the motor and the loading mechanism. Take the unit apart. Remove the belt it is probably in the front. Clean the belt and pullies with denatured alcohol. reassemble. The best solution is to replace the belt but this may get you working till you get one. Belt sources http://www.mcmelectronics.com/
