  3. To fix the "tray error" message with my Samsung E360, I had to open the enclosure by removing the two black screws at the rear of the machine.

    ATTENTION:
    THERE IS A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK ONCE THE CASE HAS BEEN OPENED, AS THE MACHINE MUST BE POWERED ON FOR THIS TO WORK! This post is merely an account of how I solved my problem. If you decide to attempt to replicate my results by using this method, you do so at your own risk! TAKE UTMOST CARE NOT TO TOUCH OR ALLOW ANY FOREIGN OBJECT TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH ANY PART OF THE CIRCUITRY WITHIN, AND ALWAYS CONSULT AN EXPERT IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INJURY OR DEATH AS A RESULT OF USING THE METHOD DESCRIBED HEREIN.

    Once I had the cover off, I used a paper clip to gently rotate the gear underneath the tray counterclockwise until the error message disappeared from the screen. It took a few nudges and little effort, but once the message disappeared, I reset my machine to it's original state, and used the following fix from Xtofoz on this foum:

    1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
    2. Turn on the player
    3. wait for no disc to appear on TV
    4. Press the repeat button (plain not A-B)
    5. Press the sequence corresponding to the original region code of your player, FF= fast forward, FR= fast rewind
    Region 2 - FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
    Region 3 - FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
    Region 4 - FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
    Region 5 - FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
    Region 6 - LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
    6. If you did it right a small white zero will appear on the screen
    7. Turn the player off and on again.
    8. Your player is now region free

    It worked for me!
