DVD player won't eject

I too accidentally stuck 2 DVDs in the player. I was able to get them out myself, but now the eject button doesn't even turn and motors. I know my way around this type of thing, I thought the tray could've been misaligned in the removal process. It appears as though it doesn't even see the dvd player. When I click play, the screen goes black instead of the usual blue DVD screen. Any suggestions?

Re: DVD player won't eject

No but I'm having same problem and the dealer sugested just buying a new dvd player cause cost of repair or replacement is unbelivably high,approx 500 canadian for new dvd sleeve, the guy tells me they don't fix them they just put a whole new dvd player in from hthe manufacturer. Pretty disapointing considering how nice it is to have it built in.

My dvd drive is stuck I think my son put too many dvds in there ad not it wont open model number is APEX DVD combo GT2015DV

If it has been overloaded with too many dvd's, then you won't be able to eject them. You'll have to disassemble and remove the discs manually, if you are not comfortable doing this, call an electronics shop, most large ones (FutureShop, BestBuy) will preform repairs. Cheers!

Hi, My dvd has got stuck in my hitachi hit19wdvbdvd player the eject button won't work.

unfortunately, if the drive is stuck, the only way to retrieve your disk would be to take the unit apart. Be careful though as this will void any warrenty. Make sure the set is switched off and unplugged before attempting this, be careful as even when switched off, some tvs can still hold a lot of voltage.

I have a 32md357 magnavox tv. a dvd disk is stuck in TV dvd player. How do I remove it?


Please try turning off the tv... wait about 30 seconds, PRESS AND HOLD THE EJECT BUTTON then turn the tv back on again. You can let up on the eject button as soon as it starts to spit out your dvd. This is a standard way to remove disks.

I hope this helps

Remote won`t operate tv stuck on channel 99 w/ no signal showing

Some units have a little hole where you can insert a straightened paper clip and manually retract the DVD.

Make sure the power is turned off first.

I have a Coby dvdtv 1390 that has problems playing dvds. Sometimes it will most times it won't. It will come up with a blank screen or wavy blank screen that says loading. sometimes the discs won't even...

how long has it been since you cleaned the DVD tray? you need to clean after about 10hrs. of play time on a DVD player, just buy a simple cleaning disc at the store, a Walmart, K-mart, Target,....etc....and run it through your player, just follow instructions on package.......I had this problem with my kids ps2, works fine now, the discs you rent are very dirty, and in turn leave your player dirty...hope this helps.....

DVD will not eject the tray

Open up the unit find the load and unload motor on the DVD carriage and turn it manually and this should eject the tray. You may even have to unscrew the carriage to get to the bottom of it to access the load and unload motor.

Can't record DVDs

OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!

Dvd won,t eject

This is going to require opening the unit and taking the DVD unit covers off. If you feel confident and are good with tools and have a good memory (to remember how it all goes back together), you should be able to get the DVDs out. Just remember to be careful inside the unit, go slow and don't force anything. After the DVDs are out and you have the unit back together properly it should be OK if no damage was done to the laser assembly. Good luck.
