I have a Pioneer xv-htd520 5 disc dvd/cd player. When I press the open button the carosel tray comes out and then goes right back in. I can only load disks by manually holding the tray out (fighting the tug of the motor) for a few seconds, after which it stays open. This happens regardless of the number of disks, including none. I took the cover off and it looks clean inside. I ran a cleaning disk with the little brushes (no liquid solution), but nothing changes. I bought this used, and suspect possible shipping damage, but the problem took a couple weeks of constant use to develop. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
My system was experiencing the same problem with the tray going in and out. i took the system srews out of the case , and opened the body up, there was a CD that had been dislodged from the tray while the wife had moved it to clean. removed the cd, works like new. hope this helps you.

The disc lock function has been activated on your JVC XV-N320, when in this mode the tray cannot be opened or closed.
If you press the 'eject' button whilst pressing down the 'stop' button on the machine in standby mode the disc lock will deactivate. To turn it back on you follow the same procedure. This is also described in the user manual for this model of TV umder trouble shooting on page 13.
When you press the eject botton while pressing down the stop botton on the unit in
standby mode, the tray lock function is activated. The disc tray
cannot be opened or closed in this status. To release this
status, press the eject botton while pressing down the stop botton on the unit in standby
This is a common problem for this model. It has a memory IC that must be replaced. This is a surface mounted IC that requires exceptional soldering skills to replace. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have repaired a good number of these for this exact problem. Unless you have great soldering skills it is not something that should be attempted to do yourself, it can cause permanent damage to the board if not done perfectly.
If you have the proper skills and soldering equipment I will be happy to give you the Pioneer part number so you can replace it yourself. If not, then you really should just take it to a service center and have a professional do this.
In order to open the disc tray.apply one of the following solutions; --- Turn off the DVD player. Unplug the power
cord from the AC outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back
into the AC outlet. Try to open the disc tray. --- If the disc
tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT
--- If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 +
STOP + EJECT buttons , --- If the disc tray still does not open simultaneously press the RETURN + ENTER+ POWER buttons. If the problem is still unresolved, a service may be required. good luck...
