Open it up (take the screws out) and see if one of the door tracks came out. Just snap it back in place.

DVD door will not open to eject DVD

There could be 2 reasons, 1. Hardware issue 2. Software drivers:
Fixing 1: Hardware
Make sure the DVD is fixed properly in your tower ( I am not sure whether you are using a tower or lappi)

The direct solution is to put a pin i the small hole present on your DVD player. That should open the DVD door.

To fix the software part.
>> Try to update the drivers depending on the operating system you are using.

>> Download the latest drivers to check if it fix the issue.

>> Open the My computer >> Right click on the CD/DVD drive and select Eject, this will normally open the door.

Else, try to uninstall the drivers from Device Manager and then restart the PC once, this will reinstall the drivers once again by its own if your Windows is up to date.

Please do get back to us, if that does'nt fix.

The tray goes in but doesnt react to the play button and comes right out again.

THere may be a weak loading belt, the CD door cannot quite complete the cycle to close, so there for it ejects the disc.

Region free?

This will fix change the dvb312 to region free for an individual dvd. Must be repeated each time you want region free.
Insert the different region dvd.
A message will appear on the screen "check region" (or something like that)
On you remote control press the "display" button. Quickly press the number buttons, "1", "2" and "3". It should now let you play the dvd.
It has worked on mine which was bought in 2003. We have watched a ton of region 2 movies. Good luck.

The door to the dvd player is stuck partway open on my zenith vcr / dvd combo player

the gears on the drawer skipped a few teeth. as crazy as this sounds, give it a stern whack back in. if the plastic teeth are flexible enough to skip teeth one way, it'll be flexible enough to skip some the other way.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole

Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

My DVD Player does not reject a DVD. It gets stuck.

I had been closing the door at the DVD slot manually. I found that if I closed the DVD door with the close button, and then opened it with the open button, it no longer got stuck.

No picture but has sound

Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
