These methods have been shown to work.

The electronic procedure:

Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

The manual procedure:
There should be a small slot on the lower side of the unit near the front and center of the disc assembly. By sliding a small plastic numb from one side to the other unlocks the door so it can maually be opened the rest of the way. You will need a strong, thin object to slide that release nub. A small knife or nail would work. Of course you should follow all safety precaution such as removing power and not damaging anything else.

    i just tried this and the latch to open the tray manually is actually underneath the tray (towards the left). you have to break through the white oblong shaped hole. the dvd player will probably never work again but at least i got the dvd out of it.

CAN'T EJECT, IS BLOCKED


I had the same "Blocked" problem and solved it - by using a rubber band! Unplug the machine and take off the outer cover. Remove the DVD reader and take off the cover to the reader - you can now easily recover the DVD that was stuck in the machine. Now slide out the actual DVD tray, you will have to bend back a couple of restraining bars to get the tray out completely. You should now see a small white wheel which is actually the end of a concealed electric motor. There will also be a larger black pulley which controls the movement of the DVD tray. If there is no band connecting the pulley and the white wheel, that is your problem and I solved it with a small elastic band. Put everything back and turn on, wait for all the messages to clear and press the eject button - the tray opens simples. It has taught me never to force the tray in manually, but to always use the eject/open button.

Our Samsung DVD-H1080 DVD Player wont open, we've had it for a while, but the place where it opens is stuck, help??


Are you using the remote or touch button on case to eject tray?
Sometimes the top lid gets warped and prevents the tray from opening. Press eject and lift the front part of the lid at the same time.

I have philips dvdr3455h/37 when pressing eject shows blocked on the display i did press eject more than 10 seconds and still blocked?


What is "causing" the "blockage" is the stabilization idler mounted on a plastic piece spanning the top of the recorder. It is a plastic disc with a metal ring embedded in it. It clamps down on the DVD once its loaded. It is supposed to release when the eject sequence starts. The read/write head assembly is supposed to rise up to read a dvd or cd and drop back down to a rest position when its time to eject the disc. The head assembly is encased in a metal shell, which is already magnetized or has become magnetized. The mechanism pulling the head down is too weak to pull the head all the way down. It moves just a little bit, you hear some noise and the "blocked" message appears on the display. If you take the cover off, you see the dvd still in the "mounted" position, but it has moved a little bit, but the clamp effect of the stabilizer is still engaged

Two ways to fix this:

First, before you go inside, tap the area of the phillips case right where you imagine the dvd center to be, if one was loaded. Tap and hit open, you may break the magnetic link that way, the head drops, the tray slides out. Then always keep a dvd in the player to give the release motor a little help, use a scratched disc you were going to throw away anyway. Second, you need to open the case, pry the stabilizer up as high as you can, or tap on the plastic near its edge while pressing the "open" button. You may need a PC type screw driver to remove the very small screws that the stabilizer assembly is mounted on. This way you can at least get the disc without further damage to it. You might as well leave the screws off, if you plan to keep using the recorder. Click on the link below to download the user manual:

Unable to open the door of the dvd --when you press the eject button to open the slot---the door does not open---everything else works


Quick trick

First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.

Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.


if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.

Unplugging the power chord to unit for sometime (around 20 - 30 minutes) and plug back the power chord .
After that press the eject button for 30 seconds at times this may work and you can get back the dvd from the player .

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

Repairing disc message won't go & DVD disc won't eject


By pressing the Power button for >10 seconds you can force the unit to turn off. Immediately as the unit does, press the disk eject button and the defective DVD can be removed. Don't put it back in, or the problem may repeat!

Eject tray will not open when pressed, just comes up with blocked.


The small slot on the underside of the machine seems to be basically there to provide access to the manual opening lever (the white nub). That white nub popped the drawer open straight away for me. So now I have drawn an arrow on the underside to remind me which way to move the lever next time it happens! You can also move it the other way to get the disk to play. I also think you should never leave the machine without a disk in it - ejection of the empty drawer seems much harder for some reason. And possibly the ejection works better if you use the stop control on the remote instead of the eject button on the front of the machine.
