I had to tear mine all apart and clean everything and re-align everything. If you arent a pro you may want to take it to a shop or buy a new one.

Hi, it sounds like either the eject button on the DVD player drawer has been damaged or the remote is in need of cleaning (I assume the remote to have an eject button too). you can remove the remote by removing a battery and seeing if the problem stops.
Best you remove the tape from the DVD drawer as this will not stop the DVD mechanism from trying to open the tray, bit like trying to constantly push against a locked door - you will cause damage if it hasn't already.

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.
