I had the EXACT same thing happen with my 2 year-old and our 2006 Odyssey last week! I drove to the dealer today to have them remove it and after banging hard on the side of the DVD player for several minutes, they said it was really stuck and I would have to pay $400 to have the DVD player removed and sent to a repair center. What!?!?!

I came home and decided to try the tweezer idea. I am not handy and I'm eight months pregnant so I couldn't get as close as I would have liked to the DVD player but as soon as I propped the little rubber doors open with the tweezers to take a peek, I saw both DVDs!! I pulled the top DVD out in about 3 seconds. I then turned my car on and the second DVD popped right out!! :) I put the DVD back in to make sure everything worked and it did. I CANNOT believe I was considering spending $400 AND be without a DVD player for weeks while they shipped it off. The DVD I pulled out has a scratch from where the tweezers were holding on to it but it's on the very outside of the DVD and if I do need to replace it, ... we're talking $10-$20 rather than $400 . Sooooo glad I didn't listen to the dealer this time!!! :)

    This tweezer idea totally works! 2 hrs into a 6 hr car ride and I just got the DVD out while my husband is driving. 9 yr old son jammed a 2nd disc in before we left for the trip. But now DVD player works fine! Thanks! Ours is a 2006 Odyssey too

Thank you so much for the tweezer idea! I did not even think of it prior to checking this website. My 3 year old stuck 2 dvds in my 2005 honda odyssey and when I called the dealer they wanted to charge my $115 for diagnosis alone! Other websites wanted me to pay $20 for their opinion until i stumbled across this...It really worked!!!! I tried prying both dvds out gently with a tweezer (one at a time) and I needed to do it fast because we are going on a 7 hour road trip tomorrow. Thank you so much for the tweezer advice!

    Go tweezer idea go! It worked for me also. Took about 2 minutes to get the 2 dvds out. In addition to the flashlight and tweezer's you should also use something thin to hold down the bottom foam layer - so that you can see dvds. In the process I scratched the bottom DVD so bad it no longer plays but who cares - replacing it is much less then the time and cost to take it to the dealer.

Unfortunately that is about it. Once you have pushed something in like that when there is only one meant to be there it will jamb in its place. Either you can take the DVD player out yourself of have someone do it for you. This is only a suggestion not an answer. You might want to try tweezers if you are not concerned about the DVD itself. (only a suggestion and not recommended)

Here is another alternative to minimize scratching the DVDs. I affixed a 2 inch piece of clear packaging/mailing tape on top of the top DVD by sliding it through the slot using a flat object like a pocket knife or butter knife. Place the sticky side of the tape down, and only support the very edge of the tape with the knife as you slide it in. Once you get contact with the top of the DVD, roll/slide the knife sideways to un-stick it from the tape. Now use it to press down on the tape against the DVD as you gently tug it out of the player. I got mine out in about 3 minutes, and the 2nd DVD ejected with just the normal button. After wiping smudges from the DVDs they both work fine.

Must be something about the Odyssey DVD player that intrigues 2-year-olds to shove multiple DVDs in! Fortunately with ideas from this thread and a little creativity the kiddie music is again wafting through the van!

I really thank this forum. I also tried the same method using a knife, and was able to get second dvd out in 15-20 seconds. First DVD came out simply by hitting eject button. It saved my many bucks.

I believe this should be undet the hood, inside the secondary under-hood fuse box (the smaller of the two, located on the driver's side).

If I am not mistaken, you are looking for fuse position #5, which is marked as "Premium" and it is rated for 20 Amps.

Honda odyssey 2007 DVD player can be heard but not seen. Any ideas besides spending a fortune at the dealer


There are plenty of Audio/electronics repair guys around. All the dealer will do is sell you a new player. Ask friends and perhaps the guys at radio shack if they know anyone who can repair a printed circuit board. The RS guys are usually pretty nerdy. Good luck.

you could take the DVD system down and check for power to the back of the player. if there is power then you will need a new player. if no power then check the wires/connections.

Honda Odyssey dvd player not working after having battery jumped


If you disconnect your battery for an hour and then reconnect, the dvd will just pop right out. This happened to us, Honda did not know how to fix it and they wanted me to pay $400 for a new one. But while they were trying to figure it out they were sticking screwdrivers and pens into it and have now broken the whole system and refuse to pay for it.

Dvd player not working on 06 Honda Odyssey


The Honda dealer just wanted to replace my entertainment center without even troubleshooting and I wasn't convinced that it was "broken" so I found the FIXYA website and saw that others had the same problem and I followed their instructions and it now works fine. I am going to call the Honda dealer to complain because they should have known this.

We simply pulled the fuse out and put it back in and then reset the radio code!
