Question about Mitsubishi DD-6040 DVD Player
The loading carriage broke and the bottom disc that raises to engage the DVD had come off - which was causing the tray to stay open as it would not close (the disc was in the way). I placed the disc back on the small spindle but now the player will not read a DVD. The laser light does not come on and the DVD will not spin without help. Is it time to buy a new player or can this be easily repaired?
SOURCE: dvd player will not open
remove the 5 screws that hold on black cover. inside there is a white gear that will retract mechanism. Two gold screws on plate that covers dvd need to be removed. lift off cover and remove dvd.

This could be one of three things
1. Dirty reader head:- If you not got one, ge a DVD lens cleaner run it 3 or 4 times see what happens
2. Maybe needs re setting, rather like a PC, unplug, disconect ALL leads leave over night and re connect see, this worked for a friend of mine recently.
3. The reader that locks onto the digital date is corrupt.....time to buy a new one !!
More expensive to repair than replace
