Depending on how involved you want to get. The cover needs to come off to access the disc. Not all that complicated just remove screws and remove cover and your good. Just remember what screws came out of what holes, some might be longer or shorter.

Panasonic ez27eb wont read disc

Here are some things to try:
  • Try a different DVD. The DVD might be an incompatible region for your player or the DVD might be dirty or if the DVD is burned, the DVD player might not be able to read that format.
  • The DVD player might just be broken.
  • If the player is under warranty, contact the manufacturer or store and you may be able to get a replacement.
  • You might try unplugging the player, waiting a minute and plugging it back in.
  • If you don't hear the drive spin up at all, then the drive may be stuck. In the past I have had good luck slamming the player flat onto a carpeted floor to unstick the player. It will probably get stuck again eventually, though. Freedom's just another word for nothing left to loose :)

Carousel stuck

Remove the screws from the back and sides, remove the cover by prying the back apart and lifting up from the back. You will see jammed discs or a broken drive belt.

Can't get "Netflix" disc out of Player unit - remote or by pushing thebuttons on the unit.

You must take off the top of the unit and remove the disc from dvd tray. Take out the screws from the unit holding the top cover on and check the dvd tray for obstructions.if you find none then try to gently move the tray forward through the door and get you dvd movie out. Then check the mechanism for faults such as clogged gears or a broken belt or bad guide rails. You sholud see some problem in the disc carriage area.Try to repair it and test the unit with the cover off, so you can see if the fault is mechanical or electronic.If it is electronic they you should check the circuit boards for bad connections. You may find a bad wire connector or something loose.If all this fails to reactivate the dvd, then take it in to a service center and have them check it out for you. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Will not open

The motor that open the door has probably died. This is a common occurrence with cheaper DVD players. You will probably have to buy a new one.
If there is a disc stuck in there, you will have to remove the screws underneath and open the case to remove the disc.

Broken disk lid

Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.

RCA DVD player "No Disc"

Cleaning the eye CAN work, especially if every disc your trying is failing, and the discs work on another player. Some links from reputable sources:

After all that fails, it's probably time to change the DVD drive inside the player. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes not. :) I haven't been inside a 6300 but from looking at pictures, it's probably got a fully removable unit.

Of course, if you have a valid warranty, then when you're left with no solutions that don't void the warranty, you have to decide whether to try to pass it off to the warranty holder for repairs.
