My tevion dvd recorder does the same thing. What I do is, I stand in front of the unit with the remote in my left hand (because I'm right handed), and with the tips of my fingers on the right hand I tap the top of the player while I hit the eject button on the remote. Some times I have to do this more than once to get the door to open. This is one of the quirks of the tevion dvd recorder made for Wal-Mart. I,m not sure if there is a solution but this is my second one and other than this the unit works great. It also seems to help if you leave a disk, (blank or other wise), inthe machine and try not to let the machine set for more than a week before turning it on and trying to eject it even if you are not going to use it at that time.

My draw will not open


Hi, If you hire sound of motor (when you push the switch) who open the door then is rubber band on wheel inside DVD, or cd is stuck inside. In that case you can hook door with something and pool up easy! If no light on displey, or don`t hear motor (when you push the switch) then is electronic circuit in DVD, then you must go in service.
Good luck.

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

LG RH1757 (80 GB) DVD Recorder / HDD Recorder Drawer keeps opening Drawer keeps opening and closing and won't read discs! Rassie from Cape Town South Africa


Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt

Tevion player shows BAD DISC,


Since the unit is under warranty, you can't touch anything without voiding the warranty. This problem could be as simple as a dirty lens. Bring the unit in for repair under warranty.

Can't record from hdd to recordable dvd


Had the same problem on my 6month old 3440H, its the degradation of the cheap Asatech Chinese DVD drive that is the source of the problem. . My 3440H HDD to DVD transfer sequentially degraded, It stopped recording DVD+ and -R's then on RW's it sometimes performed and some not.I gave up using cheap DVD's then with higher quality disks  it would frequently report task completed but then would not plaback or freeze in the way you describe. I bought the DVDR from the CO-OP Xmas 2006. Co-op no longer support electricals so when it went wrong Co-op gave me a service centre to take it to. Long story short Philips dont recognise the service centre and they declared my warrany void. Tried to re-engage with Philips but they basically were not interested in supporting their product..  
Not an elegant fix but since Phillips were useless,  I opened the box nothing ....to lose ..I now run it on a bare external Sony DVD drive using extended ribbon and power cables as its a bit tricky to find space in the box to mount the drive.

"please wait"!


Is there not a drawer open/close button? Please wait usually indicated wrong type of disk and it is not being read or faulty laser. Switch it off and switch on then press the drawer release before it starts trying to read.
