Child pulled dvd draw out of portable tv dvd combi, how do I repair it

If the DVD tray has been pulled out completely or manually pulled out too far and it will not retract on its own then the DVD drive is damaged and needs to be replaced. Although the DVD drive itself probably is a standard drive, on TV/DVD combo units the drive is difficult to replace and should be done by a qualified service technician or by a manufacturer authorized service facility.

Look on the front of the tray where the eject button is There should be a small round hole, this is for ejecting a stuck disk. Just open out a paper clip and insert in to the hole and press until the tray opens.

The door will not open.

It may be jammed. There is an emergency release, though. Look for a tiny hole just under the tray. Insert a straightened paper clip or something similar into the hole. The tray should open.

Paperless paper jam

Ok, the paper jam ERROR could be due to one of the following:
  • Check for paper in the paper tray
  • Check the size of the paper in the paper tray to see if it is the same as what the printer is set for.
  • Defective D-roller
  • Debris in the paper path
  • Gears not turning or broken gear
  • Defective paper tray
  • Broken input sensor flag
  • Defective input sensor board
  • Defective system cable 2
  • Defective system board
  • Exit Sensor flag (Fuser)
  • Exit Sensor board (Fuser)
  • System cable 1
If there is no bit of paper or debris stuck in the rollers, it would indicate something more serious, and in need of servicing. If your machine is under warranty, I suggest you take it back to the shop and get it replaced or repaired under warranty.
If your warranty has run out, then you'll either have to get it serviced or buy a new printer (whichever works out cheaper for you)

Hope that helps!

Unable to manually open the CD/DVD drive

There is a good possibility that the switch under the button has failed, especially if this drive has been used a lot. An electronics technician could replace the defective switch, but unless you have a good friend in that business, it will probably be cheaper to replace the drive with a new one.

DVD stuck/jammed in tray

there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
