I have a BD j5700 blue ray player. Has been working fine, until today I couldn't get the drawer to open to insert a disc. I tried turning it off and on, unplugging it. It sounds like its trying to do something. Anybody have any ideas?
The gears inside are probably broken. Ironically it happened to me as well just last night. It will be cheaper to simply replace it than try to get it fixed. Unless it's under warranty and you can get it replaced.
If you can open the unit and spray some Deoxit electrical cleaner on the gears, wheels. It's made for electronics. Most of the time it's a dirty stuck gear or wheel.
