If it is an infrared remote... you can test it with a digital camera by turning the camera on and pointing the remote at the camera, then look at the viewfinder while pushing any button on the remote and if it is sending a signal you will see it illuminate in the viewfinder. This help identify if it is the remote or the device that is not working.
Had same problem. Unscrew the back of the TV. Unscrew 2 screws connecting VCR/DVD from TV Base. Unscrew DVD housing on all sides (approx 6 screws). At this point you can see the detached DVD unit. Facing the DVD drawer. Look under it for a white plastic piece that you can slide to the right that should disengage the DVD's circular rotator from the dvd and slide the door open.
If that does not work disconnect the DVD from the 2 connectors at the TV motherboard. Slide slack into the ribbon cable to free up the case. When the DVD unit is out, dissassemble the black plastic DVD unit. Flip it over and manipulate the white plastic gear which will disengage the center rotator.
The fact that you are hearing a squeaking noise means it's a mechanical defect. The drawer belt is a likely culprit in this case. Unless you are familiar with electro-mechanical systems it's unlikely that you can fix it at home. For the least expensive fix you need to purchase another external DVD player and hook that to the audio video INPUTS on the back of the set.
You might try a local repair shop for an estimate on your product.
You have likely broken the timing of the dvd mechanism, especially if you heard any clicking sounds when you 'pushed it shut'. Everything from the tray to the traverse deck that holds the optical pickup is ran on a system of gears that if forced is easily broken. Don't even attempt to take it apart as even a pro would struggle to re-time a disassembled mech! I reccomend you take it to a repair shop for an estimate.
