DVD will not eject

Quite simply, a DVD disk will not eject, either through the remote button or manually with the eject button on the top of the cabinet. A solution would be greatly appreciated, especially since my 4 year old wants to watch a movie!

Re: DVD will not eject

Thanks for the info! It's been a while since I posted my question and I called the manufacturer. They told me to tilt the tv on it's side (DVD) and push the eject button. It worked! Good to know there are other methods too. Your advice may come in handy one day.

I dont know which button on the remote to use to eject dvd, can you help? thank you in anticipation, Helen

You have listed the TV Prima C2012 TV as the product but you are talking about a DVD player.
There should be a seperate remote for your DVD player, where you should be able to see an eject button.

Can't find button on tv to change source in order to play dvd

I'm assuming that you do not have access to the remote for the TV. If you do, you can simply press "INPUT" on the remote.

If you have no remote, try this:
Press the "MENU" button on the TV.
Press "CH Down" until "Channel" is highlighted, and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to highlight "List and Labels", and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to go below channel 1, you should see "FRNT" displayed.
Press "MENU" to get out of the Menu system.
You should now be seeing whatever is plugged into your front connectors.

Simply pressing one of the channel buttons will switch back to normal TV mode. I could find no faster way to access the front connectors without using the remote.

Its likely that the new new remote control has specific codes for the components it can operate. You should look to the remote manual or online source to find the code(s) for the DVD player you have. Without knowing the remote you purchased, its hard to locate codes for you.

Hi there

Check your DVD or Video player manual for regional setting, you may simply be set to the wrong region. Some players have a regional button on the remote control.

Regional settings allow DVD's or Videos to be played on the same player by simply selecting the correct regional setting.

If you are on the wrong regional setting, your picture will most likely appear in black and white.

Auxiliary button on tv remote (I believe) needs off and I can't get figure out how...

The remote should have TV, VCR, AUX and maybe CABLE buttons at the top, one of which will light up when any button is pressed. Since it is a universal remote, the button at top lights up to let you know what mode it is in. If the AUX button lights up when any button is pressed, it means the remote is currently set to the AUX mode. To set it back to TV, simply press the TV button at the top. This puts the remote back in the TV mode and the TV button should now light up when any button is pressed. If that works and you are using a cable box with that set, then make sure the TV is on channel 3 by pressing 3 ENTER.
