There is a chance that the plastic track on the loading tray either has a break or is out or time with the load gears. Also located in the front of the dvd assembly, there is a load belt , sometimes after many hours of use, this belt becomes stretched and needs to be replaced. A knowledgeable technician can usually fix this problem for about $40 if the load tray does not have to be replaced. Also, if you decide to attemp this yourself, clean the laser while the unit is apart. Use eiher ispropal alcohol or acetone. Be careful not to spill any chemicals on the plastic. Scrivitron

Plays when it feels like

Try using a compressed air can to blow air into the CD tray and also into the vents in the back. It sounds like either dust or debris is caught in the CD tray or is blocking the vent in the back causing the machine to over-heat.

Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)

hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.

Cd tray jammed

If you turn it off at the mains, wait a few seconds then turn it back on. As soon as you turn the power on, try and press the button for the tray to open. If this dont work, you will have to open up your system and remove this disc yourself. Good luck.

CD malfunction

It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.
