    I've been given a Scott 837 DVD player which I want to put in the kids room. The only trouble is when the DVD drawer opens, it closes straight away leaving no time to insert/remove the DVD.

    Any ideas how this might be fixed please?

    Many thanks

    Sounds like something is jamming the drawer mechanism preventing it from opening fully which then causes it to shut itself automatically to prevent the motor wearing out.

    you could try holding the button in for a while when opening the tray, rather than pressing it quickly - it's a long shot but this works on my mothers old hitachi hifi :)
