I have a Samsung DVD R160 recorder. A few days ago the recorder was not on and it was making a noise like it was trying to read a disk. This went on for quite a while. I then turned it on and it would...

Try this, look for a small hole on the front of the unit.Use a pin and press in to see if it opens,ejects the disk .If no hole try seeing if you can press ,lift,pull at the door/slot while pressing the open door/eject either on the unit or with the remote control.It sounds like you may have a bad CD/DVD (copy) that the unit is trying to read/load but can't. keep trying to eject CD/DVD if this doesn't work unplug unit for 5 minutes,try open door again do press and hold open repeatedly I know it's frustrating but it just may eject.Don't use this recorder for playback of DVD buy a $30 DVD player the cheaper the better they play anything.GOOD LUCK

Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD

Very Good Daniel,
if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
I've done a few times.
Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

Sony dvd player DVPCX995VMakes grinding noise and door won't open

I was able to fix this myself, however, I did get instructions from Sony that may or may not work. My solution was:
Unplug the unit and carefully (so the disks don't shift) move to a location where it can be easily worked on.
Remove the 9 screws holding the cover on. 2 on top, 2 on each side, and 3 at the back, along the top edge.
Carefully, may need some wiggly remove the cover. There are some rubber pads at the front of the unit that hinder the cover from sliding. Slightly wiggling and pulling to the rear will dislodge it.
Confirm all disks are properly aligned on the carousel.
Pull out any disks that are askew. They will be replaced later in the same way disks are added, through the door.
Look in the rear where the laser unit is.
Carefully slide out disks near the laser. You'll have to move some in order to tip others out.
By taking out 6-10 disks, you'll probably find there's one partially lodged in the laser unit. With adjacent disks removed you can slide the "stuck" disk out.
Plug in the unit and test to see if the grinding stopped.
Unplug the cord.
Replace the cover with the 9 screws. Some wiggly and pushing forward is needed to reseat the cover at the front.
Carefully move the unit back to where it was.
Replace cables and plug in.
Return the disks removed according to the instructions.
This took me about 15 minutes from start to finish.

The following was provided by Sony. I don't know if this works as I had fixed it before Sony responded.
IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  1. Ensure the child lock feature is disabled.
  2. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  3. If the issue is not resolved, turn off the DVD player.
  4. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  7. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons.
  8. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons. NOTE: This step may not apply to all models. DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

you can try to open the unit up and turn the power on
and check what hinders the door from openning.

Dvd player won't open

I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:

1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.

2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.

3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit

4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".

It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:
