DVD tray won't open

There's a disc inside, which plays fine, but tray won't open/eject. When I hit the ''Open/Close'' button, the display says ''Open'' for a few seconds, then says ''Reading'', then ''Stop''. How can I open the tray?

Try to reinitialize the DVD functions, in the manual:

Turn the player OFF,
Press and hold the power button, While holding it, press the Stop button for 2 seconds or more.

Once its reset, see if it will eject.

    Well, then. sorry the easy solution did not help, Here is the more difficult option that will work.

    First for some background,
    Take a look at the cd/dvd player of the computer you are working on while it is turned off. You should see a small hole that only a paperclip or similar sized wire could fit in. Open a paperclip up, un-bend it so it is close to a straight wire. Carefully put that wire into the small hole (which is the manual eject) on your drive, and press. You will hear the drive click, and the tray may bump out a bit. you can then pull the tray gently out.

    The recorder drive has that same capability, however that small hole may be covered or otherwise obscured.

    If you cannot find that small hole on the recorder, unplug the unit for 5-10 minutes to let the internals discharge, and then on a large table, carefully disassemble the player it to remove the front plastic face that is the front of the machine.(note, be gentle! they got this together with snaps and screws, it should disassemble without breaking anything.) Find that small hole (it exists on every cd/dvd drive I have ever seen!) and put the paperclip in. once you hear it click, you can pull the tray out and remove your dvd.
    Re-assemble the unit, dont forget any screws, and try the drive once it is completely back together without the dvd in it.


    I once had someone with just the dvd writer version of these machines. She ejected it with a paperclip for some time after the failure, since the drive itself was ok, but the eject function was not. The drive circuits for the eject fail commonly, otherwise it may be a binding issue. In either case if you get your dvd out, and reassemble the unit completely, It may operate for you.

WILL NOT EJECT DISC


What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.
***********************************************
FOR SONY PLAYER's

This issue may occur if the disc is damaged or if the disc was not inserted properly into the Blu-ray Disc® player. Follow the steps below to open the disc tray and eject the disc.
  1. Turn off the Blu-ray Disc player.
  2. Disconnect the power cord (mains lead) or AC adapter.
  3. Allow the disc player to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  4. While pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button located on the front of the disc player, reconnect the power cord.
    IMPORTANT: For some Blu-ray Disc Home Theater models it is necessary to press and hold the OPEN/CLOSE andPLAY buttons simultaneously, then reconnect the power cord.
    NOTE: This step may require the assistance of a second person.
  5. After reconnecting the power cord, when the tray opens, release the OPEN/CLOSE button.
  6. Remove the disc.
  7. If necessary, disconnect and then reconnect the power cord to recover the player.

My JVC DR-M70 dvd recorder tray won't close.


Sorry for the delay in following up. My tray problem appears to be resolved, but I wanted to wait a few days to see if the problem returned.

After reading several suggestions on various sites for other makes and models, I started experimenting to see if any would work on my machine. I made several failed attempts before hitting on the right sequence of steps. To the best of my memory, THIS is what finally worked for me:

1) I gently pushed the tray back to it's closed position (note: the solution did not work during previous attempts when I left the tray open)
2) I unplugged the machine for 30 seconds,
3) holding down the remote's open/close button, I plugged the machine back in and immediately pressed the stop button on the player, holding both buttons down for 30 seconds.
4) I unplugged the player AGAIN for 30 seconds, then plugged it back in.

A MIRACLE! Upon hitting the open/close button on the remote, this time the tray opened exactly as it should, and it's been behaving itself ever since. I don't know if any of the steps I performed were unneccesary. All I can tell you is that every time I left out a step, it failed. The first time I followed every step, I had success.

As for my remote: I put in fresh batteries. The open/close button still occasionally tells the tray to open and close simultaneously. tvdokter has suggested cleaning it on the inside, but unfortunately, I only see one screw (inside the battery compartment.) I can't see how to get in without breaking it. Oh well, at least I'm back to be able to play and record my dvds.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. I hope this solution will be helpful to someone else down the line. If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free.

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

Dvd recorder doesn't eject disc


Yes, I'm having the exact same problem -- I can't eject the dvd that's in the player right now either manually or remotely. It plays fine.

Locked dvd tray.


To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears.   The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button. 

 

To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.
