Re: dvd drawer will not open
Manually open the tray. It's possible that you have a dvd stuck in the drawer because it wasn't fully seated. Look at at the front of the drive and you will see a tiny hole. Take a paper clip or safety pin, stick it in the hole and push. You will see that the drawer will pop out and you can retrieve your stuck dvd. Thanks for using fixya.com

Try this simple answer: on a couple of DVD players I've had, it takes several seconds for the drawer to open. If you press the Open button again during that time, it will close the drawer before it even opens. So try clicking Open once, and then leaving the player alone for a 20 seconds.
Oh, I should have asked first: is the power on? On some players, the power light may be on even if the player is off. Try pressing the power button and see if more lights come on.
Is there a chance that there is a foreign object wedged in there? In my experience, 3-4 years old is prime time for experimenting with DVD players. Have anyone that age in your house? If so, the safe but tedious way to fix that is to remove the case from the DVD player. That usually allows you to see the drawer inside the machine, to see if there's anything in there. The unsafe way involves prying the drawer out; it's unsafe because there is a good chance that you'll destroy the player, and an extremely good chance that you will leave unsightly marks on the front of your player.
First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.
If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:
1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.
2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.
3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.
4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.
5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.
When the DVD player is plugged into power and switched on, and won't power up (nothing shows up in the front display panel), the power supply unit in the DVD is blown. the noise that player made was probably a capacitor going off. You will have to get the unit repaired.
