To better assist me in solving your problem , please attach , as a comment , the make and model of this dvd player.
Does the unit have power available?
(Blinking light of it is a PC DVD player when starting your computer)
(Display is showing anything on a home entertainment system)
If this is a computer drive , follow these steps if you feel comfortable doing so. Disconnect your computer from its power supply before doing so. Do not perform these steps if the unit is under warranty.
- Remove you drive by opening your case and removing the four screws supporting it.
- Open the case by removing the four or six screws on the bottom of the unit and gently pull back the sheet metal case away from the case side.
Now you should see something like this
Now remove your CD and reassemble the drive and it should work correctly assuming that the only problem was a "cd-jam"
If the unit is a home entertainment system , do the following steps :
- Remove all power from the unit and unscrew the sheetmetal casing. The player will look like this inside.
- Remove the two/four screws holding the cd on the top of the reader assembly. See image
Remove the cd/dvd causing the jam and re-assemble the player and it should work fine.
There are other reasons why this unit will not open , but this is the most likely reason behind simply being blown.
Please feel free to contact me if you need more information.
