The thickness of DVDs and CDs often vary and the surfaces are too slick. Roughening the outer edge(s) of one or both side(s) of the disk was an immediate fix for the loading problem.

Is there a transit screw in the bottom? It (they) need removing.

If you hear a little motor straining to open the tray when the open button is pressed, there is something jamming it. In a new machine, there are usually transit screws.

Read the manual, looking for unpacking instructions.

You can unscrew the top panel. (Two screws on either side, three along the top in the back.) That will allow you access into the unit.

Inside the unit the lense and spindle are encased inside a shell in the center. If there is a disc jammed in there it will require some effort to get it out without damaging your machine. Be sure that it is unplugged to avoid a shock and I would simply attempt to fish it out through the front or back slot.

There's also the possibility that if you unplug it and replug it, the machine will eject the disc if you loosen it up or get it back on track.

There is a button labeled FLIP on your remote control. It is on the far right column, and it is the fifth button from the top. It is also the first black button on the remote.

There is also a FLIP button on the front of the unit in the top right corner. It is white. When you push it, it lights up orange.

If the unit attempts to read on side of the disc and fails, it will rotate the carousel 180 degrees and automatically attempt the read the other side of the disk.

disc could be facing wrong way or is dirty

I just got one of these and i notice mine does the same thing. WHat i found that helped mine is tip the unit back a little. The loader uses a little but of gravity to get the disks to roll back into the loader. If its level the wheel sometimes cant spin the disk up into the loader fully. If its tipping back a little the disk will roll back easy into the loader and load it properly.

Also, dont forget if your playing a disk and you want to stop the unit, DONT POWER IT OFF AT THE UNIT. Power the unit off by the remote power this way it will finish its cycle and put the disk back into the proper slot.

The unit probably needs a spin motor. It apppears sony got the lowest bid from Alps ON their spin motors. It needs to work flawlessly in order for the laser and the A/D converter to process digital information. The spin motor itself is relatively cheap. It is the labor that is involved in replacing it that is the real issue. In a multiple disc unit there are timing issues, which sometime can be challenging. In this particular case it would probably be cheaper to replace the unit than to take it to a local service center and get an estimate for $20-40 and tne be told that the unit cost $200 dollars to be repaired. Scrivitron Take the estimate charge and apply it toward the purchase of a new unit. Scrivitron
