The drawer(tray) is out, but instead of closing, the discs turn but it is not getting back in.
I tried to push, but I don't want to break it. It's the second time it does it. Last time, I finished by pushing it harder, and it finally closed, with a sound, but it was working perfectly until this morning.
Re: The tray doesn't close anymore. Keeps turning.
Very specific alignment procedures.Tray must be removed along with front panel.Gears must be reset for proper timing.This is not a simple fix unless you know proper procedures and timing points.Best to have it serviced.

Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.
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.
1. Power off the device.
2. Unplug it from the wall.
3. Leave unplugged for 5 minutes
4. Plug it back in and turn it back on.
If it still does not sense the tray you will need to engage service.
Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt
I fixed this by jerking the tray gently. Someone jammed my tray and it skipped a few gear teeth. It seemed like the machine couldn't pull it in far enough to reach its preset position. So I let it close and when it was almost closed, I gently jerked it out to skip the gear teeth back into alignment. It is kind of tricky because the motor will just reverse instead of skipping teeth (you'll hear the plastic clicking when it skips). Perhaps unplug it and slowly push it in manually then **** it back out softly. Just be gentle. Good luck.
First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.
Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.
Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
