I picked up a new condition Toshiba D-R2 DVD recorder and all was well until a day ago when the tray would not open. When I shut the recorder off,just before it powers down, it says "open"... but nothing happens. Is there a way to re-set the machine? Is there a backup way to open the tray? There isn't a disc inside.

Re: Tray won't open
I think this may be the same problem as on the rd85dt where the disk tray wont close, there is a small microswitch under the corner of the dvd flap, the microswitch is broken and simply needs replacing

So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.
If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen corresponding to the current region.
Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.
Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode. The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.
Don't forget that if you want to hack it again, you'll need to use a different code, as listed above. If it's currently set to region 9, use the code for the last *proper* region you set it to.
f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or
wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean,
lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the
owner's manual. God bless you
The disc tray does not open and you cannot remove the disc after you press Z (open/close). ,Turn off the recorder. Once the clock appears in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead. (If the recorder does not turn off or if the clock does not appear in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead anyway.) Connect the mains lead again while pressing down A on the recorder, and release the button when the disc tray opens. Then, keep [/1 on the recorder pressed for about ten seconds until "WELCOME" appears in the front panel display
This can be due to a faulty LOADING drive settings, It can be due to a misalignment of the loading section and so the load does not reset to the PARK CONDITION of the MODE.
It can be a aulty gear, belt or jamming in the drive.
You need to open the player, remove the mechanism and manually check the forward and loading motion which can confirm. If the belt or the drive is jammed this can be checked and replaced or reset.
Check the mode switch settings of the forward loading.
The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.
Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.
If it's 7071, shut the unit off by holding the power button until the time is displayed (instead of the error code). Unplug the unit. When you open the case, you will see a white plastic piece at the front of the dvd drive near the silver plastic hinge on the face of the unit's dvd opening. The white plastic piece slips in the groove of the hinge to stop the units dvd door from being opened while the drive is engaged. Push the white plastic piece in toward the dvd drive; sometimes the mechanism gets sticky. Plug the unit back in and press the power button. This may solve the problem
Hope this helps.
