Question about Sony DHC-FL7D System
Its very clear that my problem is that I cannot eject the disc tray. Every time i try to eject it, the display will show "PLEASE WAIT", and I wait for 1 whole week, I just let it be at that state, if by chance the disc tray will come out but to no avail. I would like to know if I can fix it myself or if not, I want to know how to force the disc tray to come out. Thank you in advance
SOURCE: i can not eject the disc tray
I too had a similar problem with my DHC FL7D. The front moving panel would not move up. The screen used to say 'please wait' endlessly whenever I pressed the DVD button. I thought the drive belt might have got cut. There is a drive belt for the front panel to move upwards and downwards. Since that was intact, I disconnected the front panel from the main body to access the DVD drive system. I had to disconnect many cables and PCBs to do so. Then I opened the DVD compartment and removed all the DVDs which were stuck and re-alligned all the disc trays to its original state. I checked if all the drive belts inside the DVD compartment, it was ok. Also I tried moving the laser lens assembly to check if it was moving. Since there was no problem I closed the system. <br />After I switched on it worked again . I think it might be to do with the fact that the disc trays might have been stuck for some reason or may be the there was a software glitch.<br />

Tips for a great answer:
Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.
