Re: Disc door will not open

(After return from holidays) the clamp/magnet that hold the disk stick to it.
Remove the top cover of the unit (you loose your warranty). From behind the dvd driver introduce gently a flat tool above the disk and loose the clamp from the disk.

Re: Disc door will not open

Open the unit and remove the DVD manually. The magnet that holds the DVD in place is stuck to the top cover.

How to get a dvd tray unstuck

There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

The door of my Toshiba sd-6100 dvd player will not open. There's a dvd inside and it will play but it will not eject. How can I open it manually?

Try unplugging the DVD player from the outlet for 2-3 minutes to reset the unit. If this doesn't help, the player probably needs to be serviced.

I hope this helps.

(if the unit is out of warranty, you could try opening the case and removing the DVD drive. There should be a manual ejection button hidden on the front of the drive. Unfortunately, doing this to get your DVD out voids the warranty, if it is still under warranty. Each manufacturer puts this button in a different place. On computer drives, the faceplate has a hole to indicate the spot. The ejection usually takes some force with a straightened paperclip (or small allen wrench).)

Disc will not eject

When you press the eject button do you hear the loading motor ? if yes! the loading belt is stretched or come apart preventing the tray from opening. To get the disc out is not an easy task, but one trick you can try is get a flat plastic tool "the wider the better" put it in the crevice on the top side of the door and as you pull "gently" press the eject repeatedly, If you are lucky it may pop open, if not a technician would be the next step.

Hi, the dvd on my recorder stayes ejected? It will close but then will eject straight away? What can I do? Cheers.


The fault is not from the disc, it is from the player.

The disc tray is actually malfunctioning. Which is as a result of a fault on the mechanism that is controlling the opening and closing of the disc tray.

Another fault might be that the button that controls the disc tray might be stuck.

test if it is the button.
  1. Unplug the player from the power source,
  2. plug it back,
  3. turn it on,
if it opens without you pressing the open button, then the fault is from the button.

check it for any irregularity.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the cover of the player,
  3. carefully force the front control panel open from the sides,
  4. then check for any damages,
  5. change the open button and it will be okay again.
test if it is the disc tray
press the open button, if it opens closes continuously.
then there is a problem with the mechanism that controls the open and close of the disc tray.

to fix this,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the back cover of the player,
  3. look to the left side of the player and you will see a mechanism that controls the tray,
  4. change the mechanism with a new one.
after doing that, the player will be in good condition again.

take care

Opens and closes repeatedly


The most common reason for the player opening and closing itself is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your player, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!
Hope this helps...

Will not read disc or eject disc

There's a few things you can try. Turn off unit, unplug from AC for 5 minutes or so, plug back in, turn unit on, hit eject/open.
OR..same as above, but hold the eject/open button, then turn unit on.

Sometimes a combination of these odd procedures actually work. Sometimes holding the stop button, and hitting eject/open works too. Hope this is helpful.

DVD tray won't open.

Opening a CD or DVD drive to retrieve a disc
  • Use Windows to open the drive door:
    1. Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop (or click Start and My Computer in Microsoft Windows XP).
    2. Right-click the CD, CD-RW, or DVD drive , and then click Eject .
  • Restart the computer and press the EJECT button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD drive. Try shutting down or configuring any programs that write discs or monitor the CD drive.
  • If the door still will not open, do the following:
    1. Close all programs and shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the PC from the power outlet and remove the battery.
    3. Locate the manual release hole in the front faceplate of the optical drive tray. This is a small hole under the door that is a little bigger than the diameter of a paper clip. The location of the manual eject hole will vary.
    4. Insert a straightened paperclip into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.
    5. Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer comes out about a quarter of an inch.
    6. Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.
    7. Remove the CD and turn on the computer.

Disc won't eject

The problem is either the dvd door motor is bad or the control board is having program issues. You can remove the screws to the cover of the player. Lift cover off and manually open the door and remove the disc. It is also possible that by manually pushing the door open will put the door gears back into alignment. If it doesn't it should be tested and repaired
