Take the lid off by taking the 2 to 4 screws out of the sides of the unit to get the disc out.

General Problems
Player won’t work (locks up)
• Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in.
• Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds
before you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the
factory default settings and also erases the contents of the Disc Library.

SOURCE: won't open...

Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:

How do you convert a Sony dav-sb100 hone theatre system to be multi regional so it can play region 1 dvds?


It's a good idea to replace the remote batteries, so you can eliminate low battery power as a cause of the problem.

Player won't play any disks only says CANNOT LOAD DISK


http://forum.videohelp.com/topic350059.html

I think I found these adjustments! There are two tiny surface-mount potentiometers (could be capacitors also) sitting in the small circuit on laser assembly.

this is exactly response I would like to hear - an expert opinion!

What I did with help of 1mm-wide screwdriver:

1) There were two surface-mount potentiometers marked with C1 and D. I tried first D. Turned it clock- and counterclockwise by about 45 degrees.
2) After each turn I opened and closed tray to force the player read DVD disc.
3) It did not help, "NO DISC", then I tried the same with C1, and again, no luck.
4) Finally, I came back to D and turned it by about 180 degrees in one direction. IT WORKED!!!

Moreover, seem that now player reads content of the DVD discs faster then before. Probably manufacturer did not really adjust it properly and upon the time something has degraded, so it failed eventually.
Some Home dvd players may not have any adjustment abilities, but you would find such things not too far away from the lense, if they don't exist, get a new unit.

Black rectangle at bottom of screen when playing dvds on sony dvd player


Had the same problem but was able to fix it by simply doing the following:
"this is closed captions turned on your TV. get your original TV remote and look for a button that says "Captions" or "CC", and keep pressing it until the TV says "Off". if it doen't have one of those buttons, you will need to get into the menu of the TV and turn off closed captions there. It is probably set on "Text1 or Text 2" right now, and it needs to be set on "Off"
