PercivalGull1: I had the same problem with my Audiosonic DVD player and replaced the small
belt. However the problem remained. I tracked it down to the small black
pressure switch that that is supposed to cut off the power to the drawer
motor. It was not working so I applied some WD40 to the switch and the
drawer now works perfectly.

Dohn Joe: Unless the old rubber belt is ruptured, you can reuse it as follows: -
clean it with alcohol - clean both plastic wheel grooves with alcohol -
spray some WD40 on belt and rub it for a minute between fingers - dry belt
with a paper towel then clean it again with alcohol You got now a better
than new belt that will never dry again.
Guy Techie: Most DVD players have the same mechanism to eject the tray, but you'll
never know until you open them up. Some use a cork screw to open and close

have to pull so it can read the disk.

Mike Harman: This was very helpful. I was able to reach the rubber belt just by opening
the drawer and using needle-nose pliers to lift it off the plastic wheel

badtmaru: No need to find a new rubber band. You can shrink the old rubber band by
using a hair dryer to blow hot air on it. 100% working guaranteed
Niki de Brun: Great! now if only I can find the right rubber band, I'm looking at my
computer cable stuff :)
0zfer: Sometimes the issue with pc drives is the actual track breaks in the closed
position so there is no track for it to engage on.
