    Hi!

    Hopefully someone can help me. Recently, my Panasonic DVD-RV31
    started dying. Some research on the web later, I discovered that my
    drive motor was dying. A fairly easy solution called for opening the
    DVD player and spinning the motor manually. I did that. Didn't
    work. Another solution called for opening the drive itself and oiling
    the gears/motor. I did that by taking out the drive assembly.
    Unfortunately, I closed the drive tray (the part that slides out to
    take the discs) BEFORE I put everything back where it belongs. (Blame
    it on my fascination at watching the gears move as I slid the tray in
    and out. *siiigh*) So ...

    Now the tray has locked closed. I can't put the drive assembly back
    because the metal chassis has to slip over the digital display but
    with the tray in the locked position, I can't move the chassis out of
    the way. Does anyone know how to open the tray back up without
    breaking anything?

    Please and thank you!
