    Manual says the loading is normal for 50 seconds - it stayed on 20+ minutes and as noted, can't do anything in the mean time, including shutting it off. Unplugging didn't work either, it would come on and stay in loading...

First of all if it is still under warranty take it back and exchange it or have them look at it. As far as it not wanting to turn off you can search for a reset button on the back of the unit. Reset it. Or if no reset button just unplug it and plug it back in. See if that helps. As far as being jammed. Unplug the unit. Very carefully take the unit apart. See if anything has been accidentally placed in the unit when a dvd was pushed in at the same time. I have experienced this before cause I have little kids. Things happen. Now there again by taking it apart could void any warranty you may have. Also something in the unit could also shorted a circuit out causing it to not turn off.

Why doesn't the open/close button on DVD player of DVD/VCR combo work?

Assuming there is not a forgotten tape stuck in the VCR side, the mode selection logic has gotten all confused. On the VCR side, a tape is grabbed and loaded to be played. There probably is an EJECT button that is enabled for later use. The DVD side is disabled so no buttons work. On the DVD side, the open/close button is enabled (if no VCR-side problem is detected), allowing you to place a DVD in the tray and close it to play. The VCR side is disabled so no buttons work. That's the theory. From your description a sensor on the VCR side may have failed or been damaged, causing the player to keep reverting to VCR and preventing use of the DVD side.

Magnavox vcr/dvd combo the vcr part only plays for 8 seconds

What you have is called a transport problem in the VCR unit--the mechanism is either jammed or something in it that loads the tape is bad.

Every time it is used it cycles to self check the mechanism--if it fails it is usually a belt bad or a gear assembly not working.

Someone would have to open unit to see what is happening.

My dvd player tray does'nt open when it should and when i insert a disc to play, it only plays for a few seconds then it stops but the disc continues to spin

The laser pickup unit of your DVD player may either be faulty or dusty. Just put in a cleaning disc into it and play it for at least three times, and check. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your device should be replaced with same type and number. Just check the loading belt too. OK.

I have a JVC VCR/DVD-recorder, model DR-MV7S. It developed a problem... when you placed a DVD on the tray & pressed the "eject/open" button to take the DVD into the recorder, the tray...

This can be due to a faulty LOADING drive settings, It can be due to a misalignment of the loading section and so the load does not reset to the PARK CONDITION of the MODE.
It can be a aulty gear, belt or jamming in the drive.
You need to open the player, remove the mechanism and manually check the forward and loading motion which can confirm. If the belt or the drive is jammed this can be checked and replaced or reset.
Check the mode switch settings of the forward loading.

Ejects cassette and powers off makes loud noise

A very likely situation could be that the VHS DECK ASSEMBLY has a jam or a problem. Remove the case of the unit and check for any damages or loose mechanisms, if all works ok and looks ok, slowy , carefully put a tape into the unit and see if there are any jams or anything stopping it from moving.

Sanyo dvw 6000 dvd/vcr player

DVD loading mechanism doesn't load completely that's why opens after attempt of loading.
You need to open top cover of unit and inspect loading belt might be lose, tray timing can be out of phase, some wire got stuck with tray while loading etc.
