DVD stuck in my Panisonic VCR/DVD Combo

I haven't used the DVD in this machine for awhile but it is still a fairly new machine and shouldn't be giving me trouble.  I put the DVD in to watch the movie and it wouldn't play, it shows that it is stuck in the tray - it makes noise when I push the open/close button but it won't come out.  I have looked for a paper clip size hole to push to release as I saw on other posts but this machine does not appear to have one.  Any suggestions?

Try unplugging the power, plug back in, quickly hit the eject button.  You might be able to get it to eject that way.

Have a samsung DVD-V1000 VCR/DVD combo unit. DVD player works fine. been experiencing gradual decline of the VCR and now it won't play at all. will **** tape into the machine but can't get it out. any...

Always frustrating when a videotape gets stuck in a failing/failed VCR deck. Since all decks use a loading motor and gear system, it would be a simple matter of gaining access to the terminal pins of the loading motor (assuming you can see these from the top of the deck) and applying 9V DC voltage to 'unwind' the loading mechanism - you may get a little bit of tape outside of the cassette, but at least it's ejected. If the DVD deck works as you say, you may be able to continue using this for a while.

If the loading assembly is toward the underside of the main deck, you may need to remove the entire VCR mechanism - then you can apply the 9V to the motor to unwind the gear (it is easier to apply a low voltage to the deck rather than use physical force to unwind gears - as you may damage them) - while leaving the DVD deck in the unit untouched. There should be 2 separate mechanisms in this combo - 1 being for DVD the other being for VCR - as long as you are careful when removing the VCR deck, you should have no problem retrieving your tape (with maybe a little creasing but otherwise undamaged) from it. Be careful when removing the top cover and front panel assembly; you don't want anything broken.

Since VCRs are becoming obsolete these days, it is hardly worth getting this one repaired by any service centre (unless you want to pay a fortune, which is usually more than the retail price of a new combo unit). It's up to you.

NOTE: you cannot operate this unit with the VCR deck disconnected from the motherboard (you will get an annoying error display with the VCR removed). Once you have successfully removed your tape from it, reconnect the VCR mechanism to the board - but do not use it - just use the DVD part if that is still OK. Refit the covers, plug machine into power. Done!

You need a lot of patience to undertake the abovementioned action. Fingers crossed.

Use output of combo player to input of TV. Use what ever available input you have left on you TV. HDMI or Component input is best, but others will work.
