    I have had the same problem off and on. When powered on it gets stuck to "hello" and would not open. When it did open it worked quite well. However, currently it won't open at all. It is a known problem listed in the users' manual where it states to turn the power off and back on. I tried that many times lately but it won't open.

    The dvd player makes a buzzing type sound when plugged in and none of the functions work. There's a dvd in the dvd player that is a's return is slightly late.....tried the take plug out put it back in but no luck....originally this happened the odd time but then it would go back working as normal.

    My T600D has the same problem (door won't open, but functions well!). I had to open the player box to get my disc out. Now I want to contact techSupport or return the item since it is only 5 months old.

    Any other ideas/suggestions/hints?

    dvd door not opening

  • Anonymous Dec 05, 2007

    Door will not open - it displays 'open', 'close', 'no disk', so it seems to think it is working okay. Have tried powering off. I normally switch off at mains overnight - could this be the cause (doubtful I know).

    how can I open the dvd door

  • Anonymous Jan 04, 2008

    Door on VCR recorder would not open to eject tape on my Philips DVP3340V.
    The cause was that a finger on the end of a lever that actuates the door had slipped out of the right end of the door. The solution was to remove the cover on the unit, and manually reinsert the finger into the door. The plastic is flexible enough so that you can do this without unscrewing anything. Now the
    unit works fine.

    Please note that this is a mechanical problem affecting the VCR door, and not the problem described at the head of this thread.

The drive belt is most likely broken inside.The motor runs but doesn't open. This requires a new belt. Unfortunately I have trouble finding a new belt and if you open it you void any warranty still in force. So unless you find a belt, or a repair man, you will most likely need a new unit.

Symptom : my dvd811 door would not open, but displayed 'open', 'close', 'no disk' as if it thought it was working.

After keeping 'open' button depressed on set and remote, and switching off and on, and waiting, with no success - read suggestions here, disconnected it from everything, took it out, re-connected to power, switched on and it worked first time. DVD players work in mysterious ways.

Can't get the door open to put in a DVD. Player says no disc but the door won't open with remote or manually.

If you look at the front panel of your CD player you will notice a very small hole. Using a VERY straight Paper Clip push in about 1/2 inch in this hole then pull the drawer out.

It is possible that there is a piece of something that is stuck between the door and the disk drive.If it is you could try GENTLY manually opening the drive and taking out the piece of whatever with a toothpick or tweezers.Your remote also might need batteries or your DVD player might just be sunk.Hope it helped

My remote for MWD2205 dvd/vcr player won't do anything except open and close dvd door. I bought it used and it didn't come with instructions.

Hi dear,
Please use the remote very close to the dvd so that the dvd player can receive the signal properly. This can happen with low quality dvd players. If the problem persists, then consult to a dvd player mechanics to replace your remote.

The disk door couldnot open

On the front of most DVD players there is a button with EJECT printed under it.

The same button is normally on remotes.

Try pressing this button.

Cannot open the dvd door on the ch-dvd300 it is turned on but cannot open. the remote battery is not working for the dvd.

Remove the cover, remove the disc if one is present, manually push the door open if there was a disc in there or not. Place cover back on, let me know if that doesn't work.

Oh, please rate this solution.

Disc removal/ CH-DVD 300

On the bottom of the DVD player, there is an "emergency slot." I used a knife to push the botton over which manually opens the door to get your DVD out. However, I can't turn my DVD player on either. And can't figure out what the heck to do??!?!?!?!
