Re: dvd tray will not open
Replace capacitor C14 (1uF, 50V)
This can sometimes be fixed by resoldering JW14103 in board location
VV11/12. During manufacturing, only a small amount of solder is used,
and with a little shock & heat, it comes off. Bad RCA! :)
Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A

Well after taking the cover off, i "toyed" with the tray (pushed down on the round white part then let up, after first pressing the open button on the unit) the tray opened almost all the way wouldn't close so i closed it repeated the same "trick" the tray opened all the way as it should. just have to close the tray my self by hand.
it played a (Brand new dvd from Wall-mart, that will not play with out stoping in the "old" machine at the house) but stoped in about the same places, but recovered more quickly after playing another DVD i replaced the cover it works
I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.
With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.
If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.
When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:
Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same
time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts
reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
It could be electrical or mechanical. Without checking there is no way to be sure. You can get the service manual for your model for 10.00 at the following link. That should get the problem taken care off. http://www.electronicsrepair.net/dvd9.shtml
I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside. I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back. let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old
Hmmmm, I see! Sometimes on my xbox the tray does not open. Maybe if you hit the top of your DVD Player a few times the disc tray may open. You must first click the button to open it then hit it on the top. If that doesn't work then sorry. From Jake @ www.Drama-King-Jake-2.piczo.com!
To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it.
After the unit is powered on:
1)Hit the "Open/Close" button
2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice)
3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to
I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.
