Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

DVD went into TV, will not play, will not eject

When this DVD came from Netflix, it was in an envelope, with a P.O. note apologizing for the damage. I assumed the damage was to the packaging, as the DVD looked OK. But, when I inserted it into my RCA (circa 2002), it got stuck, would not play and would not eject. What do I do?

    I have long since lost the manual for the TV.

  • mglickphd Jan 11, 2009

    I have tried many times to remove the DVD by pressing the eject button, but nothing at all happens. I also notified Netflix, who have send me a replacement DVD. But I cannot very well replace the damaged DVD if I cannot open the drive, or whatever it is called.



    The principal question is: How do I open the DVD drawer, as pushing the button does not work? Is there another way to open the drawer?

  • mglickphd Jan 11, 2009

    Sadly, I have already tried what you recommended, and it does not work. Is there anywhere on the set to enable an emergency eject?

  • mglickphd Jan 11, 2009

    I have gently tried everything you have suggested, without success. I do not believe that you have told me anything I cannot figure out for myself. Therefore, I would appreciate a credit to my credit card account.

    Thanks for trying,

    I accept your solution as common sense, but do not feel that it warrants the cost.

    And the prize goes to Coolguy008, who suggested that I unplug everything and let the TV reset. I did so, went out for a stroll, and voila! It worked! The movie is playing right now.



    Cool guy gets Five Stars and a big thank you!



    I now think that FixYa is worth the money, and will recommend it to others.

Do you have a DVD stuck in your DVD player? Follow these steps to remove it. Step1Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction. Step2Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place. Step3Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases. Step4Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet. Step5Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center. Step6Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

Is the dvd player in the tv itself or seperate dvd player? You will have to take it apart and most likely manually eject it yourself. Some models have a small paper clip sized hole that will manually eject it as well. Once I have more information I should be able to assist you further. I would also call netflix and complain and most likely the post office should be held responsible. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
Lee

DVD won't play


Netflix doesn't know what they're talking about. I looked it up - your DVD player doesn't have an autoplay feature. Can you try the DVD on another DVD player. Computers DVD drives generally read them differently - and decode them differently, than a regular DVD player. Also, if your DVD drive is a writable drive, it will have a stronger laser than your DVD player. I think it's likely the disk is damaged, slightly. If you cleaned your DVD's laser, it might be able to read it well enough to play - or it might not. I started having problems like this with a few of my own DVDs before my DVD player's laser went out. Basically it's a combination of laser quality and disc quality. If it remains just this one disk, I'd suggest leaving it alone. But if you start running into this problem on other disks as well, you'll probably want to have the laser replaced in your DVD player.

I need an address for the return of my Netflix DVD. Lost the return envelope. Traverse City MI is the destination.


The addresses vary by where you live they go to the closest place. You can just put two DVDs in one return envelope if you only have one DVD at a time log into your Netflix acct and tell them the problem. They either sent your next DVD or another envelop.

Blu ray Lg BP200 keeps stopping when playing Netflix


I started having this problem a few months ago with netflix playback getting 'skippy' after ~6+ months of smooth operation. I finally figured out: Went into my netflix web-admin panel on my Windows laptop. From there changed my SETTINGS for netflix: "PlayBack Settings" adn dropped it from "AUTO" Data usage per screen to "MEDIUM" (standard video quality, 0.7gb per hour). Bouf. Magic. Everything is working perfectly again - no more skipping. I think my netflix was trying to run at a higher setting (3gb/hour) and then downsampling it for my TV set (which is not able to show the higher res anyhow - it is only 32" screen) - so it was wasted bandwidth, and making the playback stink. I hope this helps someone else. --Tim (May-2014)

I have tried to play 2 dvd's from netflix. I have used this player for 6 months and not had a proble. Both dvd's didnt play and disk error message appaered


Double check that you don't have BluRay disks that you are trying to play in a standard DVD. Or that they are upside down...

Netflix disks, in my experience, have all had scratches and gouges on them. It might be that you are the recipient of 2 disks in a row from netflix that are too damaged for your DVD to play.

NetFlix Disc stuck!


call service if it is under warranty sticky disks are common on these dvd included models i would get the service tech to remove it and go to walmart and buy a 38 dollar dvd player with 480 progressive scan and use that externally from now on, by the way can you change to tv viewing or is it stuck in dvd play only?
