I've seen complaints that there is no manual eject. There is. Unplug. Facing the front of the player, and lifting it up above your head, look under where the disc sits. You will see a number of slits that look like ventilation slits. There is one asymmetrical slit on its own, somewhat towards the front, and somewhat towards the right (if memory serves). The slit is about 3/4 of an inch long. Insert a slotted screwdriver on the extreme right end of the slit (still we're facing the front) side of that slot (a narrow shaft might help, but it doesn't have to go very far in). It should sound like it hits plastic. If not, you may have the wrong slot and you may have shorted things out (I suppose an electrician's plastic screwdriver, or a chopstick shaved into screwdriver shape, would work better). Then slide the screwdriver to the left. You should hear/feel unlatching noises, and the front of the loader should wiggle, and you should then be able to pry it forward (maybe using a screwdriver for leverage) and pull out the disc. When the player dies, it would be nice if it didn't take your--or worse not your--DVD with it.

My dvd player is stuck on one dvd and wont let me eject, change disc, or even stop the current dvd. display reads "locked" whenever i press any buttons. can only turn on and off the device.


Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution...
* 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and
then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug
the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out..
* 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing.
* 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in
place while the DVD player reads the disk.
* 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD
ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied.
* 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly..
* 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put
another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

URGENT! DVD not ejecting or playing.


It seems you will need to open the damn thing, or search for a tech, verify your warranty, dont void it.
First you can try to move a little bit the dvd, unplug and plug, change disc, ieverything that can move a part inside the dvd must be pressed, surely is stucked between the play and the open stage.

Dvd stuck in machine will not play or open to remove movie


Hello,

there might be something hooking the disc tray that is prevent it from opening.

The solution to this problem now is to, get a screw driver, unscrew the screws on the player, open the player cover so that you can gain access to the disc stuck inside, remove the disc and check for what's preventing the player from ejecting.

Take care.

Panasonic dvd recorder model dmr-e55eb/ebl. played dvd,no problem - ejected dvd - green/blue colouring appeared on TV which disappeared when dvd recorder switched off. since then unable to play dvds. ...


This is a problem with either the logic or the power supply. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, I can't state for sure the exact problem. These are decent machines. I would suggest that you bring it to an authorized Panasonic service center for a repair estimate. Post the results here and we'll suggest the next steps.
