Re: DVD will no eject

This is not helpful. The power is on and display is on, but no response.

Re: DVD will no eject

If the unit has a front display , look and see if it reads open or closed. If there is no reading, the unit probably has power supply problems. There is also the possibility that the load motor driver IC is defective. Zenith dvd players are made by LG, they are usually of good quality. If there is a power supply problem, the cost of repairing the unit is cost prohibitive. You local technician should be able to remove the DVD from the unit for about $10.

DVD side will not open, for the longest I could only get the DVD side to open if there was a disk in the slide yesterday the DVD side was closed with NO disk in it and now I can not open it

The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. If this doesn't open the unit, you will have to unplug the unit and remove the cover. The cover is held in place by two silver screws on each side and five silver screws on the back of the unit. Once the cover screws have been removed, you can slide the cover towards the back halfway and then take the silver cover (held in place with two screws) off of the DVD player. Once the DVD cover is removed, insert a disc in the player and re-install the dvd cover and case cover. Plug the unit back in and eject and close the cover like normal. I have never tried to remove the magnet from the cover and checked to see if the DVD player still worked correctly. I have found it easier to just leave a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

The CD/ DVD/ Blueray player tray keeps opening and closing!

First make sure the "Eject" button has not stuck while pushed-in. Clean the Tray window/opening and the inside of the front part of the tray. Then try to push the tray in a little bit when closed and drag it out while open! By the time dust gathers on the greasy tray rails resulting it not to open and close to the full extent. If it helps but the problem comes back, then you should open the box and clean the rails more thoroughly. Have a look at the switch that senses the tray state (open/closed) too. OBS! That is not the same as the "Eject" button! Switch placement is device model deppendant but it is usually placed on the stationary part of the disc-player unit under the front end of the tray in the middle!
Some units do eject a disk they don't recognize. That a player can't read a disk could be a result of incompatibility, dusty optical lens or faulty/old laser. You may clean the lens by using a "Cleaning disk" or blowing with an air spray(or a straw with your mouth) through the opening of the tray.
Good luck
Please rate positively if helpful, thanks!

Panasonic dvd/vhs player/recorder will not power on. disc is inside and will not open. display screen shows "F60".

I have the same problem and I can offer a solution only to get your disk back but not the error code thing. unplug the unit and all video/audio cords. Remove the 3 screws in the back and 2 along each side. Remove top. Remove3 screws holding DVD player in place. Remove and turn over DVD Player. See the motor in the bottom near the ejection door, under the sheet metal with the lopsided "Keyhole" in it. Just to the rear of that there is a piece of plastic (mine is white) with a tab and some tracks in it. in a moment you will apply pressure to the tab will slide it to the right. (if the ejection door is nearest to you and the pcboard attached to the bottom of the DVD player is furthest from you.) But before you do this you may want to turn the DVD player correct side up. This will alloy gravity to hold the disk in the tray when the tray is ejected. Now you can slide the tab to the right (or left if the DVD player is correct side up) Use some force on the tab. you are attempting to ramp up the speed on the ejection motor and still have some momentum built up after you reach the end of travel for the tab. If you have done every thing I have instructed then the ejection door should have opened and the tray should be partially exposed. Simply gently pull on the tray and then remove your disk. Now if you flip the DVD player back over, plug in the power cord, and hit the little "Reset" button, after a few moments the DVD will retract the tray. At this point unplug the power and reassembly the machine in reverse order as disassembly. Or simply throw the unit out because according to other posts on this and other sights, if you are getting the F60 or U99 error codes then it would appear that you have a bad Video board which is no longer available.... anyway I may have saved you $139.00 (At Panasonic) to extract your $20.00 video.

DVD tray will not open

When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.

Technical support needed can't get player to eject disc

I had the same problem today.  I got a screwdriver and opened the case from the back.  It was simple, just 3 black screws.  Then I looked in the unit and saw that there were 2 dvds loaded in the unit. Apparently, my daughter didn't realize a dvd was already in the loading tray when she loaded another dvd.  I gently removed the 2 disks by prying the black plastic holder open and sliding the disks out.  Then I put the cover back on and put the screws back in.  Works fine now.  I hope this helps you.  I don't think the unit has a manual eject button, but it sure was easy opening the case and looking in the unit myself.  Good luck.
