Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

DVD player My dvd sleeve is stuck partialy open after my 2yr old tried to pull on it while it was inserting a dvd. Now its frozen and wont eject or go all the way in. It's probably 2 inches out, I assume it must be off track or something. Tried to turn the power off and reset tv with no sucess. I was told that it may or may not be repairable but they want me to bring in the whole unit not easy with a 46in! Does anybody know if it can be fixed or if I order a new dvd sleeve at a cost of 300bucks will I be able to replace it myself without some technician charging me another 200 to put it in?

Re: DVD player

Yes, the DVD sleeve is pretty accessible. All you need is a pretty standard phillips screwdriver. First, pull the speaker screen out from the bottom of the tv. Then unscrew the screws necessary to remove the sleeve. I haven't done it a while, but I believe there is one layer before you get to the sleeve. Before ordering a new DVD player, I recommend removing the sleeve and checking for problems yourself. If you're not too tech saavy, perhaps you could call a friend to help? I think maintenance would be a useless waste of money. Good luck, let me know.

Disc will not eject from dvd player

Have you tried both the eject button on the DVD drive and the remote? Is there a disk jammed in the drive? Here is the manual:

most of the time there is a small hole near the eject button that you can unbend a paper clip and insert it into that will release the door.

here's a video.. it's a computer, but same principle:

I have a Toshiba TV/DVD Combination (26HLV66) and there is a dvd inserted that will not eject. Any suggestions?

There might be a mechanical problem with your dvd player but if you want to eject the dvd that is inside the player, try this:
Look for a small hole in front of the player, usually above the cd tray. Get a a small piece of wire or a paper clip that will fit into the hole. Push the wire of paper clip intot he hole until the cd tray opens and then you can remove the cd/dvd.

Toshiba tv/dvd combo

is there a tiny little hole you can insert a paperclip into around the front of the cd.
if so use a large one if you have it , insert and press hard to eject.
if not then you will need help.
even if you get it out the eject motor belt is likely slipped or broken.

DVD is stuck

When a DVD won't eject, the most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the DVD. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution1.gif on the belt or having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) try to find the motor and belt which operates the DVD loading & eject mechanism. Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting. Gravity and the weight of the DVD is why you may not have this problem during a load sequence.
Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Good luck,

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.
