Cannot get the dvd out of my recorder, will not eject with remote or the button on the recorder

I was recording a movie, but the recorder stopped after about 40 minutes. I didn't notice because I had turned the TV power off while recording, so when I powered the tv, that is what I seen an error message that it could not record on this DVD. My problem is I can't eject the DVD with the remote or the button on the recorder. After unplugging it, it will not even stay powered on, How can I get the DVD out?

Look on the face of the DVD drawer. You will see a tiny hole in it. Straighten a paper clip and push it in the hole until it stops. Push further and the drawer will open mechanically far enough for you to grab it and open it completely.

SOURCE: i cannot record from tv ? how do you get the

This model does not have a tuner so you will not be able to record off of tv unless you run your cable box or dish satellite's audio and video outputs through the dvd recorder's front or back inputs(L1 or L2) and record from those sources. Even then the cable box or satellite box would have to be tuned to the channel that you want to record. If you choose to do this you must go to your on screen menu and under setup/general settings/video/video input you will need to select the video input source(L1,rear or L2, front).

Hi,

For recording purpose it is required to connect the Direct TV box to the VCR/DVD Combo unit and then to the TV using the analog Red, White and Yellow cables.
It is required to select the proper input to record in the Direct TV box and then press the Record button in the VCR/DVD Combo unit for recording the selected inputs.
To record using the Direct TV remote, it is required to program the Remote to control the other units. All the functions like recording may not work with the universal remotes. It is suggested to use the original remote for recording purpose.
Please feel free to get back to us for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

SOURCE: Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo plays vcr for about 5 second then stops and shut off, when turned back on it ejects the tape.

This combo has a problem with the vcr unit which take up wheel will stop working and spill the tape. the unit will stop and eject the tape. You have to replace the whole vcr assembly.

How can I get the DVD out of the recorder, it's stuck?


Hi generally most dvd players have a small pin hole below the disk tray. It maybe covered by a dvd flap.
One you get to it just insert a pin and that will release the internal dvd player lock.
Thanks

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD


Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject


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!
