I have just replaced a tray drive belt in a DVD2 as discussed in another thread, so I thought I'd post a few photos of how it's done.

1.  Tools required.  Phillips screwdriver, Torx T-10 screwdriver, tweezers and of course a new drive belt - I bought this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231645307484?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

2.  To remove the outer aluminium case, undo the four Torx T-10 screws highlighted, then slide the case backwards a few mmm, whereupon it lifts up and off.

3. To remove the inner top cover, remove all the Torx T-10 screws highlighted (not all may be fitted) and prise upwards.

4. The Phillips DVD mechanism ifs clearly the big black plastic thing in the middle!  If you reach into the little arrowed opening in the lower left hand side with a small finger, you can just about turn the cog inside anti-clockwise (from above) to manually open the DVD draw. Once open a fraction, simply pull the drawer open from the front.

5. Here's a clearer picture of the opening - the cog is inside:

6. And pull open the drawer fully.

7. Undo the two circled Phillips screws, and release the two catches nearest the front plate, and the front half cover of the DVD mechanism will remove upwards.

8. You can now see the drawer drive belt.  Mine was a temporary 'loom band' replacement in pink!  Remove with tweezers.

9. Here's the new drive belt - 26mm (diameter) x 1.2mm:

10.  Use tweezers to loop the new drive belt over the large pulley on the left, and then stretch it over the motor pulley.

You can then refit the front cover of the DVD mechanism and connect power to test that it works properly. Test with DVD inserted and empty - the latter is harder work for the belt as it has to pull the drive clamper magnets apart.  If all OK, disconnect power, then re-assemble and enjoy!

Happy to answer further questions!

To bump an old thread: thanks for this! I needed to fix this in my unit. The old belt made the tray to open, show BLOCKED and open by itself if no disc was inserted and the tray closed.

I used the eBay link in the top post (still works) and I just fitted the new belt in my DVD2. Now it's working again.

Yes - thumbs up

One more addition...

After replacing the belt I still got BLOCKED couple of times. Few drops of contact cleaner into the tray sensor seemed to cure it for good.
