The unit will not eject the disk. I think a regular size CD was put into the unit while a small CD was alread in the tray, then the door was closed.
Now the eject will not open the door.
How do I fix??

Re: Disk player door
You would need to disassemble the unit to take out both the CDs. Trying to force the disk out without opening the unit might damage it. If you are not comfortable with open it, please get someone who can actually do it for you.

Hi, maybe the disk tray is stuck, with a clip you can push into the small hole located in the front of CD unit to manually eject disk tray to check if a disk is "tramping" the tray, if not, the unit is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Can you find a very small hole, about the diameter of a paperclip wire, on the front of the unit, maybe behind the lid? If you take a paperclip and straighten it out, gently push it into that hole until you see the disk tray push out slightly, then CAREFULLY pull the tray out the rest of the way with your hand. It should be done with the power off so the disk drive doesn't try to close itself on your fingers! Hope this helps. I've included a video I found on youtube.com that shows exactly how to do this, it only takes a second!
if it is a brand new unit you have to remove the shipping screws that are usually on top of the unit, if these havent been removed you cannot load or eject a disk. They put theses in to prevent damage to the unit. If it is an old unit, ensure there isnt alread a disk inside the device, or worse that a child or etc hasnt jammed anything inside it.
elsombro is right. There is a little whitish plastic square on the right side of the player, part of the DVD assembly (after you take off the cover). It's about 1/4 inch square. With the unit turned on, push that square with a pen about 3/4 of an inch in or as far as it will go. There will be a clunking sound but that is the sound of the DVD being released back onto the tray. Now gently push the back of the tray forward, ejecting the disk manually. Take the disk out and then press the close button. If the door doesn't close, it's out too far so manually push it in about an inch or so and then press the close button again. Should be fine after that. I think my problem was a DVD I recorded on my computer and it has the wrong format or something. After I got it out I put a regular DVD back in and everything was fine.
there's a small hole in the front of the disk drive close to the base of the tray and near the button used to open the drive. get a paper clip, open one end, hold carefully, and place it in the hole and push carefully till the drive opens.
to close, just push the tray back in firmly but without slaming it in. don't want to damage any of the gears inside.
