Problems with the DVD of Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

The Dvd stopped working. The door opens to put the disk in but when it shuts nothing happens. You can hear it trying to work but that's it. We tried cleaning it and still nothing. We don't want to pay a repair person to do something that we can do ourselves. If we need to replace it where would we find one to put in it's place? Any suggestions?

These units have prepritary DVD units and cost anywhere from $30 - $200 for a replacement. If the cleaning disc didnt work more than likely its REALLY dirty or the pickup itself has malfunctioned.

Dvd don't eject

Hi - I have a Hitachi TV/DVD combo and nothing worked except people suggesting opening the back - (not good unless you are a TV engineer!) - BUT, I did find in the manual's small print (it was tiny) - that if you press the stop/eject button on your TV three times in succession the disc will eject? - Give it a go, maybe it will work for yours? Only other alternative I can think of is long handled tweezers with the ends wrapped in something soft to limit damage to the DVD (? maybe soft surface masking tape or some ribbon etc? ) Good Luck! :)

TV just quit and I need to get the DVD door open to retrieve a DVD disk, can you help

be sure the t.v. is unplugged, and you will probably have to get it out manually. you'll need a phillips head screwdriver a pair of long needle nose pliers, make sure to put tape on the ends so it will not scratch the disk! It should take around thirty minutes to retrieve the disk. while your inside the t.v. check for fuses that might be blown, hopefully you wont have to pull on the disk to get it out!

A dvd is stuck in the dvd player

something stuck our dvd-door.
1. open the dvd
2. remove the thing that block our dvd door (like paper, tissue, paperclip)
maybe our dvd mechanic door had block by dust
-----basicaly, clean it.

in my case. I knock the upper top of the dvd door hard (but not by hammer, by my hand) while i push open button (the menu open/'open' word is display at the menu). if u're lucky, the dvd door will open

Stuck DVD

Have you tried unplugging the set for a few minutes, then plug it in.
Hopefully it will reset and eject the disk.

If it is actually jambed (wedged in) this probably won't work.

Wrong disc on screen

If you DVD player is damaged, and u have external AUDIO\VIDEO inputs.Buy a $59.00 scan DVD player & save yourself a $100 repair bill.
The DVD heads coud be internittan { sometimes it works & sometimes i don't } U could have issues with the country codes that tell your DVD where the DVD CD was made at or where is was recorded.
