Question about GE 5803P Multi-disc DVD Player

Won't open or load

The player says it's opening and closing, but it doesn't. It also says it's loading, but it doesn't. It's not turning at all when I try to switch to different discs. I tried unplugging the player for several moments to reset it, but that didn't work.

I did fix it! The solution turned out to be pretty simple and easy!
Here is how:
1. open the box by unscrewing
2. rotate the multi-DVD holder counterclockwise (the problem was that the DVD spinner under the circuit plate was somehow stuck over the DVD holder)
3. you'll hear a click sound
4. turn it on and the problem solved!

An other's suggestion to "shake it" sounded somewhat low-tech, but in the absence of any "high-tech" suggestion and nothing else working, I shook it around. Now it powers up, opens, closes. Expectations of a long and fruitful usefulness are VERY low.

Inside your player are different sets of rubber belts. one or more of which is broken. the player won't actually recognize the issue and will say it's doing whatever you want it to. seeing as it's a changer you're not gonna be able to just pull it apart in pieces and work it manually like I did with mine (lol). you're just gonna have to break down and either have it fixed or buy another one.

The tray on DVD won't open when pressing OPEN button DVD/CD is inside

Often the tray is powered by a rubber belt. If the latter breaks or slips the try will not open/close. The motor will work and tell the electronics that all is well because it has done its job but it really hasn't since the tray is inert!

I have a GPX D200B DVD Player and cant get the Disk Tray to open.

unplugged the dvd player and then re plugged, power on then press the eject button. if still the loading tray won't open, at this time you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the loading tray mechanical assembly. then check for an stuck up or broken rail plastic loading assembly it was installed drive by the loading motor.if ok, check the limit switch might not get contact which the processor not turn on the supply for the motor.

The DVD player keeps opening and closing and won't play/load DVD's. What could be the problem?

There are sensors which tell the DVD drive that the drawer is closed and that there is a DVD inserted, if these fail there is usually no simple fix, the parts need to be replaced which requires complete dis-assesembly of the TV/DVD, Most people just choose to connect an external DVD as it is cheaper.

Tray won't close fully then pops open again what needs to be done.

Hello
Its loading mechanism has the fault. It must be replaced. Check its loading belt, before replacing the loader mechanism.
Picture of the loader mechanism is given here.

Open & close disc doesn't work. It is open not but I can't close it. Looks like both open and close don't work.

Hello
There are three possibilities for this trouble with this DVD player. The first one is imprper loading function due to loading motor or loading belt trouble. If loading motor is weak [that is its pulling power has gone low] the tray will not close properly into the mechanism, and will not touch the load sensor switch fitted inside the mechanism. If this happens, the main system control IC will detect improper loading and will turn the tray out again to load it properly. Just try to close it without a disc inside the tray, and check whether it closes well. If it does so, or the trouble repeats, change the loading belt first. In most cases, this will retify this type of trouble.
The second one is, bad 'Sled' motor. sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside the mechanism. After proper loading, if the disc do not spin inside it, again the system control IC will sense it, and will eject the tray. The sled motor also is a replacable part.
The third one is, damaged gear wheel in the loading gear section. to detect and repair any of above trouble, you have to open your DVD player, and take the DVD mechanism out of it, and is somewhat semi-skilled work indeed. Check these first. If you want anymore assistance from me, feel free to get be by fixya. If you are somewhat skilled, and have confidence and can follow the diagrams, send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send the service manual of your DVD player by return mail. All details and disassemblng procedure are in it. OK

When I turn the system on the CD Drawer keeps going in and out repeatedly by itself. When I load a CD it won't recognize it and won't play it and keeps going in and out opening and closing by...

Hello

Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.

Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.

Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.

Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips,look for loose or broken internal connections.possibly have gears and belts replaced.
