Disc Tray Will Not Eject

I have a Govideo VR4940 DVD Recorder + VCR. I placed a DVD on the disc tray and hit the eject  button on the remote which closed the tray. The DVD would not play. So I hit the eject button on the remote to eject the tray but the tray would not eject. I pushed the eject button on the recorder and the tray would not eject. The instruction manual says not to remove the cabinet cover as I may be exposed to dangerous voltage.How do I get the tray to eject?


I can't find Govideo on the internet. I guess they are out of business.


Thanks. Hope you can help me.

    There is no pinhole below the eject button.

    I had to open the door to find the spot to release the draw.

    Thanks for helping.

Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!

Recorded GoVideo DVD-R will NOT play in any other DVD player

most dvd players have a region code and you must know what code yours is in, oryou can't play any dvd's, try and find your dvd code,by the way you can only change the code ,think it is 5 times , then it will stay in that code and cannot be changed.

GoVideo DVD/VCR combo has a disc in it, and it plays, but I cannot ejecti it. I tried turn off machine and restart it but it still doesn't eject. It keeps reading the disc and plays the program.

there is a belt which is driven by a motor to open or close the tray. u place the disc on the try and the try loads the dvd/cd into the mechanism. the belt is loose & needs replacement. you have to open the cover & find the belt on the mechanism & replace with slightly shorter length of belt.

Go Video DVD will not eject

this suggestion made on this forum worked great for me.
I don't care if it does sound silly.. smack the unit smartly over the eject tray when you press the eject button.
