Re: DVD won't eject

Same problem - same solution. I have tried to verify if there is too much movement in the tray (vertical) but it is a random issue with mine..... except now I can't get system to recognize I want to load DVD instead of tape! See separate thread.

I have a new samsung bd-f5700 player and tray won't open. Tried using the remote to open & the panel on top of player to open. Nothing works.

First, try resetting your player. Unplug it from wall for at least 1 full minute, then plug it back in. If eject function (remote or top panel) still doesn't work:

MOST DVD players (including every one I have ever worked on or owned) have a tiny manual eject pinhole located close to the tray. You may have to gently open the flip door to see it. It is usually to the right of the disc slot, but could be underneath or elsewhere close by (use a flashlight, it can be hard to see). Carefully insert a straightened paper clip in the pinhole to eject the disc. (It shouldn't matter if machine is on, but for safety I usually do this with the machine OFF and unplugged).


If above fails, your only recourse is likely the disassembly of the machine (search "dvd disc stuck" on Google or YouTube), or taking your machine to a repair person. Best of luck to you.

Dvd plays but will not eject. Screen says open but then goes to play.

Hi there,

Well first of all you may try the following steps-
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
Attempt to open the disc tray.
If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons.

If the above steps do not works then there may be some mechanical problem in the tray. Please post further comments if the above steps not worked.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Does not play when disc entered nor when play is selected. (XD-E500KB)


Push in the plug connected to the "Video Out" jack on the rear of the Dvd to ensure it is connected firmly. Check the connection at the back of the TV as well.

Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV remote to verify the television's input is set to the DVD connection.

Press the "open/close" button on the front of the DVD to open the disc tray. Insert and test different DVDs to determine if the problem is with a specific disc, or if the player will not operate.

Eject the DVD tray and insert the DVD laser lens cleaner. Close the tray and wait a few seconds for the cleaning disc to load. Press "Play" on the front control panel to spin the disc through the cleaning cycle.

Remove the cleaning disc, insert a DVD and test playback operation. If the machine still will not play discs, the main receiver unit may require internal repairs best left to an experienced technician.

Follow this procedure to lock and unlock the disc tray.

While a disc is playing in the Blu-ray Disc player, press the SYSTEM MENU button on the remote control.
After the System Menu screen appears, slowly press 0 0 0 0 7 6 6 9 using the number pad on the remote control. NOTES:
If the procedure has been performed correctly, the disc will stop playing and the player will go in the Resume mode. Each time this procedure is performed the disc tray will either lock or unlock.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject

Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!

Not closing

Hello, with mechanical problems with sophisticated systems of gears etc, the only way thate one can fix it is if you send me a digital picture yourself. To access the inside of the DVD player, you will have to get a handyman to open the DVD player up with a screwdriver, by undoing some screws which hold the cover to the player itself. Then, with the player's circuit boards (The Green/brown Boards with weird components on it) showing, take around 5-6 photo's of the loading tray and the playing tray.(Where the disc is when watching a movie)In the time being, open the layer's cover as instructed before, and look at the inside of the tray for any broken plastic, debris or anything stopping the tray from opening. Good luck!
