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!

Thanks

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.

Thanks!

I have a Proscan pledv2488a. There is a disk in the DVD player, but I cannot find a way to eject it. There appears to be no eject button on the remote. What can be done?


Do you have the original remote or a universal remote? On the original remote, the Eject button is also the Favorites (FAV) button. It's just below the Volume - section of the Volume toggle on the left side of the remote. The button has an upwards arrow above a line on it. You probably need to set the source to DVD for the Eject button to work properly. (If the source is TV, the button will add or delete the current channel to the Favorites list.) You can cycle through the input source options by pressing the Source button on the TV or the remote. On the TV, the Source button is between the Power and Menu buttons. On the remote, the Source button is on the right hand side above the Up arrow key.

The manual for the PLEDV2488A is available from Proscan at the manufacturer's site: http://www.proscanvideo.com/product/PLEDV2488A . Click on the Downloads tab. The direct link is http://legacy.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/PRO_PLEDV2488A_EN.pdf . Page 8 describes the remote buttons.

I hope this helps.

Disc will not eject from dvd player


Have you tried both the eject button on the DVD drive and the remote? Is there a disk jammed in the drive? Here is the manual:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/custservice/manuals/PRO_PLEDV1945A_EN.PDF

most of the time there is a small hole near the eject button that you can unbend a paper clip and insert it into that will release the door.

How to remove a dvd when no power to tv?


If not already done so, check the instruction manual (on-line if you don't have a copy) to see if there is anything about this in the troubleshooting guide - it may have a key combination on the remote or similar to force eject the disk. Failing this, if you can open the outer flap of the disk drawer without forcing it, you may find a small reset hole which can eject the disk manually by using something like a straightened paper clip to put into the hole and press the recessed button that is accessible via the hole. It can be a little difficult to find as depending on the design of the TV, it can be obscured behind the plastic of the TV body. Don't be tempted to force the disk drawer out as this can knacker the mechanism completely. BTW, if the disk is not a pre-recorded disk, (recorded yourself), this can cause an error like this - powering everything off and then pressing and holding the eject button as you power up may result in an eject. Hope it helps!

Cannot find eject button or what to use to eject DVD from bauhn atv-32hdc1n. Lost the manual first time to use DVD and now cannot get it out. Hope you can help


On page v of the manual (if you had one), under the heading "DVD Mode", the first item in the list is an up-arrow symbol, with "Press to eject the disc" next to it.

That's simple enough, IF you have a user guide. But if you don't, and you weren't familiar with standard symbology for these types of buttons, you would be stumped by the moronic design of the remote control.

The up-arrow button is on the top row of the Remote Control buttons, next to the red Standby button. It's a standard Eject symbol, but not only did they just assume you'd know that, they obfuscated the situation further by marking it as "TV/Radio". So if you weren't familiar with the symbology, you certainly wouldn't be looking for something marked TV/Radio to eject a DVD.

But there's another catch: The up-arrow/eject button will only work if your Source is set to DVD. If for any reason you switched away from the DVD before wanting to eject it, you would find that the Eject button no longer works. You have to switch back to Source = DVD, then press the eject button.

IMO, there is no excuse for a Remote Control design that can't be figured out without the manual.

Disc tray does not always open


well i understand why the remote won't eject the disk because there is no eject function button on the remote. The top pannel function button's are the only way to eject a disc on this system. on these units I have seen the button's go bad and need replacement. More likely the dvd section of the unit is starting to go bad. Bose has a reasonable factory repair rate. The drive swap is simple but requires some technical skill. Obtaining the drive is difficult as bose does not sell just the drive. I have listed myself and seen some listed on ebay for sale. I hope this helps. Dan

Buttons dont work any more.


In many cases, the drive motor that moves the disc tray in or out becomes inoperable. It may get a signal to activate, but it is stuck in position and will not function. Yes, you can manually force the tray to open, but noting you can do will help make the tray go in/out using a button or remote.
The entire unit needs to replaced, unfortunately.

DVD tray will not open


When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
