Jammed.
Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip.
Insert that end into the small hole in the face-plate.
Push until you feel resistance.
Firmly push another 5mm to "unlock" it.
Then, press OPEN.

SOURCE: DVD won't eject

Same problem - same solution. I have tried to verify if there is too much movement in the tray (vertical) but it is a random issue with mine..... except now I can't get system to recognize I want to load DVD instead of tape! See separate thread.

If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

SOURCE: DVD player freezes

If it's a very cheap unit, it's possibly because the machine can't process the information quickly or efficiently enough, thusly causing the picture to freeze up while the processing catches up with it. Friend has a $30 unit, which happens to constantly.

SOURCE: DVD Eject tray stuck

Your problem is more than likely mechanical. There is a belt that makes connection between the motor and the loading mechanism. Take the unit apart. Remove the belt it is probably in the front. Clean the belt and pullies with denatured alcohol. reassemble. The best solution is to replace the belt but this may get you working till you get one. Belt sources http://www.mcmelectronics.com/

SOURCE: DVD Stuck in Player

While the above problem is not in the manual, I would try pushing and holding down the Open/Close buttton for an extended period to see if the unit will 'unlock' itself.

Dvd, no eject disc


It sounds like your DVD is not getting any power to it. When you press the eject button does it show a power light for a second and then not move ? Also it is possible that some other DVD could have been in it and now it is blocking the door to open, look carefully at the door there should be a very small round hole on it you can use a paper clip straightened out to make a probe and insert it in the little hole and push you will have to push firmly and it should open the drawer. I hope this helps

Does not play when disc entered nor when play is selected. (XD-E500KB)


Hello

Push in the plug connected to the "Video Out" jack on the rear of the Dvd to ensure it is connected firmly. Check the connection at the back of the TV as well.

Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV remote to verify the television's input is set to the DVD connection.

Press the "open/close" button on the front of the DVD to open the disc tray. Insert and test different DVDs to determine if the problem is with a specific disc, or if the player will not operate.

Eject the DVD tray and insert the DVD laser lens cleaner. Close the tray and wait a few seconds for the cleaning disc to load. Press "Play" on the front control panel to spin the disc through the cleaning cycle.

Remove the cleaning disc, insert a DVD and test playback operation. If the machine still will not play discs, the main receiver unit may require internal repairs best left to an experienced technician.

Disc drive wont open. i pressed the eject button on my keyboard but it makes a clunk sounds but wont open.


This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions: To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
    Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
  3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
  4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
  5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
  6. Type: mac-boot
  7. Press Return.
  8. Your computer should now start up normally.

Our Hitachi camcorder will not eject the disc out of our camcorder. My daugther's school project is on this disc & she needs it for tomorrow project.


Had the same issue before. Here is how I solved it
Remove battery; open LCD screen2.gif;hold in reset button a few seconds; reconnect battery; set to "off" and eject .... out pops a very dirty DVD-RW.

When I reinsterted it the problem recurred and I solved it the same way. I have now permenently removed the offending DVD2.gif and the cover opens and closes fine. I will buy some fresh DVDs this weekend and see if the problem returns.

Dvd stuck in ibook g4 disc drive


Here's possibility 1: from the apple forums" We had a repair come in at work with excactly the same issue, I managed to correct the issue by correcting the CD-Drive connection to the logic board, the customer had a very VERY big smile on his face once I had fixed. I felt so happy after this repair, unfortunatly, it earned our AASP no money tho. But it made me happy to see a smile I caused.
Possibility 2: firmware command:To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer .
2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key
combination Command-Option-O-F.
Note: The Command key has the Apple icon on it.
3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to
Open Firmware."
4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject
any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the
action is complete.
6. Type: mac-boot
7. Press Return.

Possiblity 3

If you can't get the CD to eject normally, reboot and hold the Option key. You'll see a startup drive select window. When the cursor changes to an arrow, (be patient, it may take a minute or two) then press your eject key, the CD will eject. You can also try holding the mouse/trackpad button down during a restart.

Stuck cd discs


I think there are a couple of faults here. The first one is maybe a faulty motor on the eject mechanism. The second one is a faulty laser unit as it is not scanning the disc. Hope this helps.

Upside down dvd inserted


FYI - This might damage the unit, but if you really need to get that DVD out then you can try this at your own risk!

Try unpluging the unit, then plug it back in and press the power button and a split second later press the eject button. This all needs to be done quickly otherwise the unit will try to load the disc.

Or

You can try letting the unit load the DVD. When the unit says "Please eject disc. Playback feature may not be avalible on this disc," press the eject button.
