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.

I have had this problem with my Go DVD/VCR combo player- the "Open/Close" button is pushed but the DVD tray doesn't open; all there is is a sound like it is trying really hard to open. How I got it to open was by waiting to hear the sound, and then using my thumb to push near the middle of the tray drawer, with my four other fingers on top of the DVD player holding the unit down so it wouldn't slide back when I pushed with my thumb. If it didn't work, I would immediately try pushing elsewhere nearby to find the "sweet spot." It usually took me one or two tries to get the tray to open this way.

Today I took this same unit apart to try to fix the problem with the "bad disc" message I recently started getting with every disc I put in. After tipping the unit over trying to clean the laser, etc., I somehow managed to fix the tray drawer. It now opens and closes without any issue; too bad the DVD player still displays the "bad disc" message (or now nothing at all) every time I put a disc in though.

Dvd door won't open


Someone is going to have to open the unit to see what is happening--either a disc is jammed inside or a mechanism problem.

Sometimes with unit apart you may be able to gently probe and free the jammed area--possible also something that does not belong there got inside--look closely.

Tray won't open


by just resetting the software will not work this is a mechanical problem this usually happens on players that is not use for a long time or improper closing of tray..fixing this kind of problem requires opening the cover of the unit..you need to lubricate all moving gears and parts by putting enough amount of lubricating oil..you have also need to assist the motor manually by helping it to push the tray out just gently pull the tray with your hands during a eject command on the unit clean also the limit switches of the tray make that contact are properly working..good luck!

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?


Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

I have a OPPO DV-980H DVD player and the drawer won't open. Is there a mechanical release or some other solution?


You would have to open the unit to inspect and see if something is jammed in the mechanism--failing there if it is not an expensive unit--cheaper to just replace as I now see units selling for as little as 20 dollars.

Zenith dvd/vcr model ABV341 DVD WON'T STAY IN TO PLAY...VCR WORKD FINE


If the door does not close either something ( a coin or anything) got inside or there is a issue with the mechanism= alignment or possible bad part in that mechanism that loads and positions the disc.

A suggestion when door opens try to take a quick look inside with a flashlight to see what you can.

Hi Donna,

Please do be frustated.

Your lovely Bose has problem with its mechanism that cause load / unload totally out of order. If you hear some noise while you turn on the bose or when you hit some buttons, it is telling us the motor still work. Now we need to check the broken gears ( or other mechanism linkage).
If you able assemble this Bose, go ahead to find and fix it mehanism ( you may need some parts replacement.

Note : Be carefully with its laser lens while power on ( avoid direct contact to your eyes).

Best luck,

Jay

Sony dcr-dvd408 can't open the access door to get the tape. I hear cliking but it won't open


This can be due to failure of the loading motor mechanism . Since you are hearing the clicking sound , it is possible that the motor is working to the command from the processor but there is failure in the mechanical drive., This can be due to pulley slipping , gear failure or belt failure.
Unless the camera is opened to remove the covers and get access to the mechanism , the exact fault cannot be confirmed.

Disc door won't open. DVD in will still play. How can we make the door open


try to re start the power first to reset the supply in which the door unable to open and then push the open/close button to open the door. if still won't open maybe their is an stuck up at mechanical part, so turn off the player then use a Phillip screw driver to loosen the screws and to remove the cover of the DVD player .you can now access the disc mechanical assembly of your DVD player, remove the CD first and then check if the plastic gear is mis aligned or the the drive belt is broken.much better if you can apply silicon grease in plastic gear for smooth operation.then make sure the open/close button is ok, good luck and good day.
