The button to open/close my Philips DVD player Model DVP5140/37 is not functioning, and the remote does not have an open/close button. How do I fix this??

Here are some troubleshooting steps to get you started to resolve the issue.

First, Try to unplug the unit for 10 seconds from the power source. Wait 10 seconds after unplugging and reconnect. Try to open/close and see if the tray opens. This may resolve the issue as this is what Philips Technical Support says to do in this situation on their website.

Also, you should be able to eject with the remote. To eject or open the disc tray with the remote, you need to hold the STOP button on the remote for 5 seconds.

Hope this helps! If not, I was told to give a direct phone call to Philips Customer Care Center from 12pm-8pm EST Monday-Saturday. Their phone number is 1-866-323-9916. Have the device/unit ready when you call with the Serial Number handy.

Warm regards,

DVD is stuck. open close button does not work. Is there a solution to this problem?

yes..... you need to unplug (power) the player for 10 - 15 mins... plug back into wall, but when you do this press the stop/open/close button (because the player will try to load the disc).....

good luck

My DVD tray on my Yamaha DV C6480 (it holds 5 DVDs) got stuck in the half open half closed position. It may have come off the track. I opened the case and reinstalled the DVD Tray. Now the tray...

This happens to us all the time. Here is the note I keep on how to fix it quickly:
When tray gets messed up, the drive wheel (with pegs that interlock with pegs on the tray) needs to be such that the tray slides in and out freely. Push tray all the way in. Turn on.

Hope that gives a hint.

My coby-514 dvd won't open up when the open/close

disc is stuck, remove cover screws and carefully remove the disc, do not force the unit, once the disc is out use the remote to close the unit, then use remote to open and use a different disc press play and hopefully it will work, try to avoid not using the remote for all functions,including open-close. do not push tray in manually.

Our dvd2100-pa will not close. how do i fix it?

I would try to push it manually but very gently so not to force it. I used to have this problem and I pushed it in with my hands and it worked. I hope it works for you.

The Disc Tray Will Not Open And/Or There Is A Disc Stuck In The Player. spacer.gif Some DVD Players manufactured prior to 2003 have a Dealer Lock or Child Lock function. This will prevent the panel buttons from operating.

This function is activated by pressing the STOP button on the front panel
and the POWER button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds in the power on state. Repeating this sequence releases the dealer lock. When the dealer lock in activated, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the display.

If this does not resolve your problem there may be an error with in the player. To resolve this try the following these steps:
  1. Unplug the DVD player from the electrical outlet and leave it unplugged for thirty seconds.
  2. Plug the DVD player back in to the electrical outlet, but do not turn the DVD player on.
  3. With the DVD player off, press the [Open/Close] button on the front of the DVD player. The home theater should power on when you press the [Open/Close] button and eject the tray.
The second option worked for me...

DVD will not close its door

Open it up (take the screws out) and see if one of the door tracks came out. Just snap it back in place.
