If you take a look at your computer's DVD or CD drive tray, it should have a tiny round hole. Look close because it's only about 1/16-inch in diameter. Does your DVR disc tray have a similar tiny round hole?

This hole is for ejecting the tray if there is no power. You take a paper clip and unfold and straighten it and insert it in the hole. It should go in about 1/2 to 1 inch before it hits the unlatch mechanism. You shouldn't have to push in very hard to unlatch. If it does unlatch, the tray will pop out about 1/4" and you simply pull it out by hand the rest of the way.

I hope this helps you out.

LOCKED DVR


I just bought the CH-DVR 1600 @ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work also), until the real regional unlock is available.

1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.

NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.

NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.

also try this
-Switch player ON with no disc in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control. A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY button and put in movie.

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

DVD shelf won't open


You know you can place a paperclip in the hole next to the DVD drive to release the door. Never just pull on the tray when it is all the way closed. Once the door is part way open you can gently pull it out the rest of the way. This will not fix anything, it just allows you to open the tray once.

DVD stuck/jammed in tray


there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
