Question about Sony SLV-D300P DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DVD player will do nothing

Last night while playing a dvd it just froze. So i removed the dvd and cleaned it. The eject door will not open, it will not turn on or off although there is power. I have unplugged it, and pressed the power and eject buttons simultaneously but nothing. The only thing I do get regardless of what I push is a blue flashing light on the progressive button.

    My wife noticed that that our player was not working. None of the buttons do anything when pushed. The progressive scan light is continuously on. I tried unplugging and plugging the unit back in with same results. I tried putting a video in the vcr side, now I just have a tape stuck in the unit too as the buttons still do not work including the eject button.

Ok so I took the cover off to see if I could figure out the problem. Don't have a complete solution, but I did get somewhere. There is a silver cylindrical motor attached to the eject mechanism wheels on the VCR side. When I unplugged the tape from the back of the little motor, the progressive light goes out and the sound from the motor stops. When I manually turn the wheel/arm attached to the motor, the other wheels/gears turn and I can manually eject the tape. Also when I get to a certain point, my progressive light starts flashing like yours was. Anyway it all seems to be related to the little motor. I figure if you replace that, it would work. At least that is what I might try, I'll keep you posted.

Hi, it sounds like either the eject button on the DVD player drawer has been damaged or the remote is in need of cleaning (I assume the remote to have an eject button too). you can remove the remote by removing a battery and seeing if the problem stops.
Best you remove the tape from the DVD drawer as this will not stop the DVD mechanism from trying to open the tray, bit like trying to constantly push against a locked door - you will cause damage if it hasn't already.

Have a Toshiba hlv87 tv/dvd combo that will not eject a good dvd


I've had the same problem. I called Toshiba support and all they could say was to unplug it. Since I already had done that, they were going to send a service person over for a couple hundred bucks (which they get a cut of) to take it apart. Haa

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..

Dvd wont eject


Make sure the DVD player is level, and that there is nothing stuck inside. You might have to GENTLY nudge the door, with a careful prying motion. If it still won't eject, and you feel daring, you can open the device with the POWER OFF, (Don't lose screws), and see if it there is an obstruction. This last option will most probably void the warranty, so only do this if you are comfortable.

Disk wont eject


It may have burnt out something in the power supply. Did you smell anything get hot or a pop from the unit.? It could also be that when it froze up that the slider assy that the laser assy rides along could be hung uo pn something like a dust or hair or dirt and made the unit draw excess current and shut down the power supply.. Try unplugging for overnight and replugging in and see if that clears up your fault. If it dosent you should seek a pro to assist you. Good Luck
