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?

    Mars Bars I owe you a huge thanks. Once I pulled the speaker cover off I was able to pull the sleeve out and took the top off the DVD player and found the dvd arm jammed, and was able to free it. Works like a charm! Without your advice I think I would have just let somebody else look at in in fear I would make things worse not even knowing where to start with the removal. I was figuring on having to take it out from the back of the TV, you saved me alot of dough thanks again.

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.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

Dvd tray wont open


Hello

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

6. You might need to see a technician.

GOODLUCK

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

DISC DRAWER WILL NOT OPEN


First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

Good luck!

Dvd wont eject when you try to open it. or dvd wont play


i think the cd or dcd disc inside stuck-up you have to insert the tiny hole located at the dvd rom and insert a needle or something that is similiar or smaller of the hole size of that locted in your dvd rom.usually its new the LED blinking when opening or inserting the disc. and now you can now eject your disc manually regarding your question about it won't play a dvd try first to clean your DVD disc with a micro fiber cloth, avoid you'll scratch it, if still the same i think you're dvd room is defective.
