Question about Zenith DVC2550 Multi-disc DVD Player
SOURCE: DVD tray will not open.
Have a look around the tray and see if you can spot a small hole (about a millimetre or 3/64" in diameter) in the fascia. Very often bang in the middle right below the tray. If you find it, you're in luck. Get a large paper clip and unwind it until you have a long straight piece of stiff wire with a small handle on the end. With the power off, gently push this wire straight into the hole. The secret is to go straight in, perpendicular to the fascia. What you're trying to do is to press on a small pad hidden behind the hole: if you miss this, there's no knowing what you might disturb instead. If you get the wire in the right place, and the whole thing hasn't seized solid, pushing gently on the wire should unlatch the tray - after which you can gently slide it open and get your disc out.

The tray will have a supporting element which lifts the tray up and ejects the drive..I think probably its worn out..You just need to replace it..it shouldn't cost you much..

The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.

It sounds like there is something inside the dvd player, that isn't supposed to be there, that is keeping the tray from retracting fully. Try unplugging the unit and gently turning it upside down and giving it a little shake. Not too hard. This might jar the item loose, you will hear it knocking around. If you do knock something loose turn the unit so the front is pointing up and let the foreign object fall to the back of the unit where it hopefully won't interfere with the operation of the mechanisms inside. If you don't hear something come loose, remove the screws on the bottom, sides and back of the unit to remove the top cover. Make sure you have unplugged the power before you do this. take a look and see if you can find something jammed in the track or the gears for the tray. If you do gently remove the item with your fingers or a pair of needle nose pliers. Once removed replace the cover and away you go. If there is nothing blocking the tray and the mechanism, you probably have a gear system to close the tray. At some point someone must have pulled fairly hard on the tray causing the gear teeth to jump, check and make sure they aren't damaged or stripped. You are going to have to them either remove one of the gears (or pull it up so it can turn without turning any other gears) push the tray back into the fully closed position and replace the gear. Once you have done this you will want to test to make sure the tray will function properly. Place the top cover back on, but don't secure it with the holding screws in case you need to open it back up again, plug the unit in and test the tray. If it works unplug it and secure all the screws for the cover and away you go. Otherwise you are going to have to play with the gears till it is back in the proper starting position. If your hearing some strange noises and its not working, then the gears are probably badly stripped. You can contact the manufacturer and see if they can sell you some spare parts or direct you to someone who can replace it. Though at this point simply replacing the unit may be less expensive.
