Re: Need help! DVD tray won't open
Soundsa as though there is a draw drive problem and that could be a motor or as simple as a belt?? are you sure tjhat the eject button works properly as I found out on these denons that the eject switch or push button wont make contact with the switch behind it because the Printed cuircut board shifted??

There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.
Try unplug,replug the unit back like about an hour later for the unit for resetting itself back to factory setting.If getting the same result the unit might have a shorted motor drive for the disc tray.Or shorted control panel on the unit itself.Well,this thing a basic DVD player only wright?If u can tries take it aparts and check out tries to repair it ur self that great.If u tries the shops,not worth it.Trash it.These basic DVD player only are very cheap now.U can get one brand new like $40 dollars.
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.
You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.
First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.
Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.
if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.
