    We used this combo unit for a couple years without any problems. Then all of a sudden, it would not play the DVD, and it will not eject. This is much like the other person noted here, except we got a little more use out of it. It plays & records VHS fine.

Well, the playing I don't understand. However, I have a few ideas as to what may be going on that'd cause your tv to not eject a dvd.

One thing that's crucial information is this; when you press the eject button, does it:

~Say it's ejecting on screen, but it's silent,
~Say it's ejecting on screen, but it's making a constant clicking sound,
~Do absolutely nothing.

If it does absolutely nothing, then there's a problem stemming from the button you're pressing to the chip that controls the door. There are at least 6 different components in between those two functions, so it's safe to say that you're pretty screwed.

If it says its ejecting on screen, and you either get total silence or a light clicking sound, the most common break-down I've found is within the DVD mechanism; there's a small series of white, plastic gears which runs the laser, the door, the tray, and the mechanism that raises and spins your DVD.

These gears are held in place by a protruding plastic rod held in place by a screw; this rod is actually part of the DVD's chasis itself. However, through the miracle of cheap out-sourcing, these components are mostly made from cheap, easily-breakable plastic. Over time, this is the most common section to break off, making the gear come loose, and fall out of place, ultimately rendering your player useless; this particular gear that seems to break all the time controls both the tray eject AND laser position.

Really, all you need to do is go to a fix-it shop, get some SUPER Super Glue, and glue it back on. Gotta be careful, though; make sure you only glued the peg, NOT the gear.... If you do that, you'll never get it spinning again!

If you feel you know what you're doing, go ahead and try it yourself. HOWEVER, EVEN WHEN A TV'S BEEN UNPLUGGED, THERE ARE CAPACITORS WHICH MAY STILL BE HOLDING ELECTRICITY. THIS IS ENOUGH TO SERIOUSLY INJURE/KILL YOU IF YOU'RE NOT CAREFUL!

Happy fixing!

PS: I'm 17, and I figured this problem out within 3 hours of the initial break. Good luck!

Laura Have you tryed to unplug the unit for a bit and try pluging back in to the wall and press the eject button before anything else!! if that dosent work try pressing and holding the power button and at the same time press the eject button. If that dosent work then theres a mechanical or electrical fault thats causing it to not function vproperly and its time for a repair person to assit you. Good Luck
