If you look at the cover of the DVD drive itself, you will see a white wheel. This wheel has 2 magnetic washers in it. Once you have the cover with the wheel on it removed, unclip the two halves of the wheel remove one of the magnetic washers then reassemble everything as it was before (Minus one magnetic washer) and the drive should work perfectly. I have had three of these recorders all of the developed this problem, the first 2 were in warranty so I got them replaced, the third is one of those replacements and broke after the warranty so I fixed it myself (after MF services in cork said it was "Uneconomical to repair" and they said it needed a new hard drive, when the hard drive is in perfect working order!) It looks like the two magnets are too strong and overtime something in the drive wears down and causes this malfunction!
Hope this helps, and hopefully you haven't already bought a replacement!

Unplug the dvd from power and all connections and flip it over. You will see a slot that is underneath the dvd drive and is parallell to the front of the unit. You will see a white piece in the slot. You can use a small flat blade screwdriver or toothpick or whatever to slide the piece manually to the side and that will open the door.

Unplug the unit, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in. See if it resets itself.

I have a vw 2003 beetle convertible, with a problem with the window. It wont drop down to open door...or go up after i close the door. It opens ok with the button otherwise?


That sounds like a door lock problem.The door lock sends a signal to the convienience control unit to activate the window so you can openthe door and raises the window when you close the door.Try another door lock.good luck.

Disc door will not open


hello,

the reason the disc door would not come out is because there is a problem withe the mechanism that opens the door.

to fix this,
1. you unscrew the dvd player,
2. take off the cover,
3. plug the dvd and press open to see if the door would open, then you will see where it is getting stuck,
4. replace the mechanism that is controlling the disc door, and press open to see if the door will open.
5. once it is able to open up, you can screw back the cover.

Tne dvd door will not open


These are instructions to open door if DVD is jammed or the DVD recorder wont open.

Unscrew the 7 cover screws and the 2 foot screws. Remover player cover.

Pry the front control cover off from the top of the player and not the bottom with a thin screw driver paying attention not to crack or break the tabs. Just lift them enough to clear the hooks.Then lower the cover withut removing it so you can gain access to the DVD front internal bezel.

On the left side of the DVD recorder there is a notch with a lever in it. gently push on it as this is the release for the DVD door. Remove DVD from tray and close.

Re-install all covers and screws. Machine should work after this.

Help ejecting dvd


I had the same problem and tried for ages (even tried forcing the door open thinking I could just tape it shut) without luck.
Then my very clever wonderful husband had a go (I know i'm crawling and yes my knees hurt).

Any way to the relevant bit. If you hold the eject button down and at the same time slide a knife or similar object round the edge of the door where the screw is near where it says photo/select you'll find that the door opens as this is an override mechanism.
