Question about Philips CDC745 CD Player
Once closed, the player will not respond to the "open" button. The only way I can get the CDs out is to remove all of the screws and take the entire housing off the player. There does not appear to be anything broken inside, and the player moves freely back and forth as long as it is not fully closed.

Hi As you describe the problem, there are three likely possiblities, either the laser lense is dirty, the laser is beginning to fail, or there is a dead spot developing in the spin motor. Cleaning is the first step, and the least expensive...If you have some electronics experience, they are not difficult to clean, but you must expose the laser to do it, and I don't want to advise someone to do that, and forget to unplug the unit. It's free laser eye surgery, but I doubt you would be happy with the results. I would advise you to call around to local repair shops, and see what they charge to check it out and/or clean it, and then descide if it is worth proceeding. Hopr this helps, good luck!

SOURCE: dvd player won't open
I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:
1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.
2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.
3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit
4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".
It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:

The problem could be from your optical pick up, try cleaning it if you know how to do it without damaging it, if it doesn't work you will have to change it.

The small slot on the underside of the machine seems to be basically there to provide access to the manual opening lever (the white nub). That white nub popped the drawer open straight away for me. So now I have drawn an arrow on the underside to remind me which way to move the lever next time it happens! You can also move it the other way to get the disk to play. I also think you should never leave the machine without a disk in it - ejection of the empty drawer seems much harder for some reason. And possibly the ejection works better if you use the stop control on the remote instead of the eject button on the front of the machine.
