How to Remove a Stuck DVD From Your DVD Player

  1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
  3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
  4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet.
  5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
  6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

    • Before you remove the DVD player cover, try
      turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come
      out after the machine has rebooted.

    • Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your DVD player.

    • Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.

    • Opening a DVD player may negate the warranty. Read yours carefully before you proceed.

Have you try unplugging your device from the main power source and plug it back in after?
Sometimes it works.

How to play blue ray dvd on the LG HT554


Unless it is specified as being able to play Blu-Ray discs, it cannot do so, and there are no 'hacks' to enable this function as the HT 554 is a DVD player/home theatre system. You would require a Blu-Ray player to play both types of disc.

I have a Philips home theatre HTS3010 which refuses to read a DVD anymore.It however happily reads CDs and VCDs.It displays NO DISC when a DVD is put in.Please Help


The DVD processing section is faulty. This is the main board of the DVD and it is not processing the RF from the optical head to convert the DVD signals.
I think you will need to source a new board unless Philips can check and replace the IC.

Have a philips tv and a home theatre system but the remote off the surround system just changes the tv settings. Its kind of frustrating when I want to watch a dvd! Do I have to assign a freq?


When you press a function key on the remote control, not only does it change the function on the system (eg DISC, TUNER, TV etc) but it also changes the function on the remote.

However, if you change the function or source on the system, then only the system changes.

It sounds like you have changed the function on the system to DVD, but the remote is still set to TV. When in TV mode the remote will send Philips TV codes.

Press the DVD or DISC button on the remote.

Dvd player


There are hacks available on the web. Some require a "secret" combination on the remote. Others require soldering inside. Each player is different. Some cannot be hacked at all. Try a search engine entry for Phillpis HTS3154 region code. If I find something specific I will return and repost the URL.
