Unable to open DVD slot

I am unable to open the DVD slot to insert a DVD. I have tried disconnecting the power and re-trying. I have replaced the battery in the remote control. The TV screen tells me that there is no disc in the unit. Any ideas as to how I can open it.

    If you look on the bottom of the DVR you will see a note that says to insert a pin and push to the left. the slot is above the note and if you use a flashlight you will see a while rod. I used a popsicle stick and the tray opened.

Look at the bottom of the unit. There's a slot where you can insert a small screwdriver and move the lever sideways to eject the disk.

I am unable to open the dvd tray after inserting a dvd which plays ok.i want to be able to open and close the dvd tray as normal.

There may be a problem with the dvd you are using. If you look at the front of the dvd player there should be a very small hole. Take a paper clip and insert into this hole which should open the dvd drawer.

Now try another dvd to the if the player functions correctly. If not it likely means that there is a problem with your dvd player.

DVD stuck in DVR5000

Some CD/DVD units have a manual opening mechanism, it looks like a small hole on the front of the unit, try using a needle or a metal rod that fits by inserting it into the hole and pushing it should open the unit in case it got stuck somehow. If afterwards it continues to work then all's good else you'll have to bring it to a workshop.
