Dvd drawer will not open

I have a Philips DVD750VR/17 which is dvd/vcr combo. THe vcr portion of the machine works well, but I am unable to open the dvd drawer with either remote or at the machine. Is there an overide button somewhere that I can push to open the drawer or is there a secret you can let me in on to enable the drawer to open? The machine is only 3 years old.

If you have a manual for your RS remote , there should be a section on how to search for a code automatically. If not you have to buy the original remote, from Phillips online.
Hope this helps.

Philips DVD750VR stops recording at exactly one hour each time, then flashed error 1.

change your recording settings on your recorder timer. You have to choose the quality of the copy and the recording time in your set up before you start recording. mine varies from half hour to 6 hours.

My dvd/vcr combo won't open any drawers on a magnavox combo, i press open and nothing opens, nothing seems to work except the lights

You need to change the drive belt. Attempt only if you know how to replace electronic parts. Open top cover and see drive bay to locate any belt that opens the door. Replace it with a new one. Also apply a little grease to the drive's edges.
