My baby pulled the DVD Player Tray out of its slot (the tray is in my hand). I tried to put it back; I put the tray in the slot; it was pulled in for an inch and then stopped. I opened the cover panel, then DVD cover panel, and I realized that the DVD spinner comes up before the tray is placed. How can I fix it?

Remove DVD player from the mains. Look for the slotted opening covered with plastic cover at the bottom front, which can be opened easily by hand without much force. After opening it put a small flat screwdriver (locate the stud inside) & move it so that the tray will just open. Then pull the tray & remove your CD.
Hi, Take the DVD player cover off (4 screws). Try to slide tray out manually. You should be able to remove the DVD's easily. Make sure you pull the plug before you do this. Put cover back on and plug in again. good luck.
You have to check the try loading belt of you dvd. if the belt is loose or broken the will not be ejected. you can see only OPEN in the display. You can simply check is it related to belt. Power on the dvd player and then press the eject button. Place you ear on the top of the player and listen is there is any humming sound (sound of motor running). If you hear the sound then the belt have some problem.if there is no sound then the problem is related to the electronic part which drives the motor. if so you have to change the mother board of you dvd player. Because the all the parts in it are smd( surface ***** device) also the availability of the part is very rare. Also you have to consult the sony authorizedservicing center to repair the same.
If you here the sound then you Can rectify the problem by replacing the belt. Normally you cant see the belt from the top of the mechanism. Because it is beneath the tray. you can see it only if the tray is in eject position.
Remove the top cover of your dvd player. As it is sony dvd player you can eject the tray manually. for that watch the bottom of your dvd player. You can see a slot closed by a plastic strip just bottom of the mechanism. Pull out the plastic strip. Watch through the slot. you can see a Noach which you can move manually to the left and right. put a screwdriver in it and pull the Noach to the side. the try will get ejected. Not fully but partially. You have to pull out the tray fully manually.

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
I had this problem and it turned out to be the gears on the door drive. There are two gears, one that engages the rack on the tray and one that has a slot that drives the clamping action to hold the DVD. These two gears were misaligned by one tooth. This prevented the gear with the slot from turning freely after the door was closed.
To fix it I had to take out the tray assembly, disasemble it, and reassemble it with the gears properly aligned. You need to remove the top and back of the case. Then take out two screws at the rear of the tray assembly and three screws on the circuit board attached to the tray assembly. Unplug the connections to that board. Slide out the tray assembly. Now you can pop the top off of the tray assembly by pulling out two tabs and sliding the top toward the rear. Now you can get to the gears to adjust them. The slotted gear should be able to turn freely for about 1/4 turn when the tray is closed. Make sure the pin on the clamping part is in the slot when you reassemble it.
My grandson's Lightning McQueen dvd player was acting up. The tray would come out about a 1/4 inch and then go back in. Once I got the tip on how to remove the case, I was able to access the dvd player. You must remove all four screws from the bottom of the unit. Carefully remove the smile from the front of the tray. After that you can slide the black tabs toward the front and get to the dvd player. To remove the dvd player, first carefully disconnect all the plugs from the back of the player, better to use a needle nose pliers than to try to grasp each connector with thumb and forefinger as you might inadvertantly pull a wire out of it's connector plug.. Now on each side of the player are two detent tabs. With two small pairs of pliers or needle nose pliers, pull the detents out a little on both sides and then the dvd player will slide out. It helps if you have a third hand to pull the player while you gently pull the detents out a bit. Once out, I removed the four bottom screws and the two top ones that are under the silver tape. Lift up the top from the rear and slide back a little then off. Once the metal cover is off, you must remove the four screws that hold the plastic part of the player to the metal base of the case. I discovered that the tray had jumped off it's track, or rather was probably forced off it's track by my grandson's pulling or pushing the tray too hard. If the tray comes out manually, then the small drive belt from the slide motor is probably suspect. Replace the belt. If the belt is ok, but the slide is off it's track, then carefully pull on the sides outboard from the tray, I was able to put the tray back on it's track. It's a small white pin or tab that rides inside a long track on one side of the tray. Leave the tray slide out while you are putting the four screws back in holding the player to the metal base. Put the metal top back on with the open end on the slide end and press is down onto the metal base. Replace the top two and four bottom screws. Before you slide the player back throught the detents, aim the extended slide throught the slot in the front of the case and snap the smile back on. If you don't have the slide out and it gets pushed back into the player, the slide will lock in and you won't be able to snap the smile back onto the front of the slide. After that you can pop the players notches back into the detents. Plug all connectors back into the back of the player. Align the tabs through the slots on the bottom of the unit and slide them back until the four screw holes line up. Put the four bottom screws back in. Put the cover back on allign it so that the two screws that go to the case on each side that were hidden by the fenders. Replace the top two screws and the two counter sunk screws where the video and audio inputs are on the back. Replace the wheels. Each wheel must go back on it's correct side, Line up the tab and the space in the back of the wheel and push the wheel back in on each side. Replace the three screws in the middle of each wheel and put each fake lug nut back into place. Use a small pair of pliers to gently squeeae the tabs of the lug nuts so that they will go in the slots easier. Plug the unit back in, turn on and after you select dvd, then you can press the open/close button for the tray to come out.
No parts were needed, as the one small drive belt that comes off the tray motor had not stretched or broke. Great patience is needed just for the removal and replacement of the back of the case.
If it is anything like my Philips DVD622 (DVD player), then the tray eject mechanism motor belt may have broken. Which causes the unit to not be able to either open, or close the disc tray. There is a slot on the bottom of the unit that you can use to manually open the tray.
To do so, make sure to power off the unit, and keep the unit level/horizontal as you raise it so that the disc does not fall out of the tray, which would require opening the unit cover at that point. Insert a medium slotted screwdriver into the slot and gently push one of the two plastic tabs to the left until the tray pushes out.
You can technically still use the unit with the belt broken. But it requires that you manually load the DVD disc. Keeping the unit level, insert the disc and push the tray all the way into the unit. Then use the same screwdriver in the same slot to push one of the two plastic tabs all the way to the right. Then you can play the disc. Just make sure to power off the unit before manually ejecting the disc, as the disc keeps spinning even after you have pressed the "Stop" button.
I'm in the process of trying to find out where to get a replacement belt. I'll post back if I find an answer.
