20 Most Recent Yamaha DVR-S120 DVD Player Questions & Answers

As an alternative cheap solution, if you have the following available you can do as I've done.
I used an old burnt out ATX power supply 24pin motherboard connector, cut all the wires of about 10 inches and then cross sliced the connector up into 2pin connector pieces. Worked perfect, saved me $ and made some great recycling use of an otherwise useless PSU.

Look for a tiny hole near the door, then push a straightened-out paper clip into it. Most DVD drawers have a mechanical release of this sort.The problem is very likely a warped DVD or some other mechanical problem, maybe a broken part inside. You may have to take the unit apart for an inspection (danger -- unplug it and be prepared for damage!) to see what's going on. I assume you've tried unplugging the unit, then plugging back in to reset its software.

Insert a lens cleaning disc into the player, and play it. If the fault id sue to dust or dirt, the cleaning disc will clean it. If this do not hep you. you must replace the optical pickup unit.

The problem is in the power supply, sometimes when a capacitor breaks down it leaves a slight bulge at the top causing shutdowns.

Helloeither its loading motor is faulty, or the loading belt is broken. The commands are reciving, but it does not work mechanically. A mechanical fault indeed.

Sure thing! I will be glad to help you here. The best kind of plugs you can get are what they call Banana Plugs. The best deal on them is at the link I will give you here... 10 plugs for $17.10, many places charge at least $5 a pair, and as much as $25 a pair. 10 for $17 is an amazing deal and it has free shipping with no tax. Here is the link:


The other kind is more of a standard speaker connector, a spade style connector they call it. You can get 4 of them for $6.95 with free shipping. If your setup can take banana plugs definitely go with those. Here are the spade style connectors:

I would buy a new one, it will probably cost you about the same or more to have it fixed.
