    same problem. Won't come out of standby mode. Unit is older and don't want to spend $$ to take to service center (not worth it actually), BUT have a rented DVD inside that won't eject. HELP!

    All I did was unplug it to move it to another location and now it won't come off standby mode. Done all that I can adn RCA customer support hasn't answered me yet.

Unit on standby mode only, the dvd rack didnt open when open button was pressed.

Turn off and unplug at mains Plug back in and turn on press standby button so power light come son. If pressing open button on player (rather than remote) doesn't work it may be a disk that is not sitting properly in the tray. You could try sliding a very thin blade (preferably something with an insulated handle!) gently in the top of the tray to press the disk downwards whilst gently prising under front edge of the tray with a small screwdriver. If you can manage to press the open button at the same time as doing both these things it may help.
If that fails to solve the problem it may be a broken drive belt or worn cogs in the tray operating mechanism. DVD players are so cheap these days that repair is seldom worth the expense.

My little colby dvd player wont open or close and it wont turn off. if it would open, i would try to reset the remote..yes, i have plugged and unplugged and have it plugged directly into tv???

I assume you've tried plugging into a wall socket instead of TV?

Probably won't work, but push and hold power button on unit 10 seconds then release, for that matter try all buttons. Not uncommon problem, usually you have to UNPLUG unit, disassemble to remove DVD and discard unit if cheap enough.

It should not matter if it is a DVD or CD, because the CRAIG CVD327 palys both. It must be some other problem. Also, use the button and not the remote.

DVD player stuck in standby mode

Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.
