Some have a little hole in the front, you pull the power and use a paper clip. Bend it out so its fairly straight then you poke it into the hole and it unloads the mechanisim. If there is no hole you may have to remove the cover.

I have now had two Panasonic recorders
3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.
It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.
Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to replace, and not this abortion they fit.
I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found around twenty.
ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT
"DVD drive faulty"
I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and keep clear of Panasonic in future.

SOURCE: I cannot open the DVD
The DVD drawer might have a small hole under the tray. You can use a straightened paper clip to push into the hole and this is supposed to manually push the slot out enough to grab and pull out. The DVD might not be seated in there.

The small slot on the underside of the machine seems to be basically there to provide access to the manual opening lever (the white nub). That white nub popped the drawer open straight away for me. So now I have drawn an arrow on the underside to remind me which way to move the lever next time it happens! You can also move it the other way to get the disk to play. I also think you should never leave the machine without a disk in it - ejection of the empty drawer seems much harder for some reason. And possibly the ejection works better if you use the stop control on the remote instead of the eject button on the front of the machine.
