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.

Re: Unable to open DVD slot

Look on bottom of unit - there is a slot and a note to use a pin and push the arm to the left. I used flashlight and a popsicle stick - opened fine.

Re: Unable to open DVD slot

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.

Probably the power supply, or some other relatively catastrophic problem happened.
If it's still under warranty call Philips tech support first, for possible replacement.

Else you're probably looking at buying a DVD player, unless you want and are willing to open it up and fix it your self (time consuming).

If you cannot get the disk to eject, power the device off and insert a paper-clip into the emergency-eject hole in the front of the device. It should be located just under the disk tray.

Good luck!

Unable to open the door of the dvd --when you press the eject button to open the slot---the door does not open---everything else works

Quick trick

First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.

Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.

if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.

I have had some luck in unplugging the machine for five or ten and then trying again. I have spent five to ten minutes trying to get the darn thing to spit out the disk and it refuses. Unplugging either gives me time to cool off or it helps the machine :)

DVD slot does not open. Can't insert into it.

Sounds like the dvd door is stuck. Try using a paperclip in the small hole by the dvd door to open manually. Once opened then try to use the button to close. Hope this helps.

Hello there. I know you said that you tried resetting the unit, but have you reset it then pressed the eject button rapidly as soon as you press the power button. This usually works for me.

Panasonic dvd recorder model dmr-e55eb/ebl. played dvd,no problem - ejected dvd - green/blue colouring appeared on TV which disappeared when dvd recorder switched off. since then unable to play dvds. ...

This is a problem with either the logic or the power supply. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, I can't state for sure the exact problem. These are decent machines. I would suggest that you bring it to an authorized Panasonic service center for a repair estimate. Post the results here and we'll suggest the next steps.

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.
