I had the same problem. It would not release the DVD because it was not ready. What worked for me, was to insert a VHS Movie and play it for a few seconds, than stop it using the remote, then Eject with the remote, and then after removing the Tape, I pressed the Open/DVD button on the unit and now it worked, it released the DVD
Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Combo's, Another method With unit on and no cassette inside, hold the rec/time button on the front of unit for 7 seconds.
