Dvd does not!

We were challenged w/ejecting a dvd from the player...after weeks of persistence, it finally ejected but after doing so, we have been unable to select the tv option from the remote or buttons on the TV.  the only buttons that are functional on the remote are dvd-related...  we are also unable to adjust the volume. is there any hope?

How do you eject the DVD

I you can't do it with the Remote control, you might be able to do it on the TV itself.
I'm not positive about this, but there should be a button on the back outer-edge of the TV that may control the DVD player.

If not, here is a link to Download the manual. Scroll down & click on 'Guides + Info' and then the download link.

How to eject dvd from tv set

If the loading belt is broken the CD inside will not eject. If the loading motor is defective, the CD mechanism won't eject. Anyway, the CD loading mechanism is defective.

Coby tfdvd3295-32in720pwidescreen lcd hdtv with dvd player hdmi input

All TVs have a tuner and a set of AV inputs for connecting other sources. A combi TV such as the Coby has one of those inputs dedicated to the built-in DVD drive. Press the Input button to see the list of sources.

The disc can be ejected either by pressing the eject button on the set itself, or possibly from an eject button on the remote if there's one fitted.

My dvd player is stuck on one dvd and wont let me eject, change disc, or even stop the current dvd. display reads "locked" whenever i press any buttons. can only turn on and off the device.

Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution...
* 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and
then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug
the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out..
* 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing.
* 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in
place while the DVD player reads the disk.
* 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD
ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied.
* 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly..
* 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put
another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

2 dvds in built-in player

I have come across this a few times, one in fact last week!! The back needs to be removed from the back and the dvd section removed, Dont be afraid this is quite easy to do. lie the tv down face first and remove the stand and all screws, then remove the DVD section, should be 5 x screws and some leads that just clip off.
Then you will need a small screwdriver or a knife to prize the second dvd out, this may scratch your dvd but its better than your dvd player being broke!
Once out place the dvd player back in the set then re-screw it plug the leads back in and turn the set on and try to eject the first dvd, this should now be ok.
Once done, turn the tv off and replace the back on.
Just take your time and Obviously make sure the tv is not plugged in when removing the DVD.
Hope this helps

Combination tv/dvd player- dvd won't eject yet plays dvd

Always unplug any electrical device before tampering with it!!!!!!! You must remove the two screw in the back of the TV behind where the dvd goes in and out of. Using a flat headed screw driver pry at the seams very gently until it pops. Continue this around the edges until the piece becomes un-attached, (except for the cord, DO NOT UNPLUG THIS!! just let it hang loose. Then get a pair of large tweezers and hold them in front of the slot. (you may want to practice this a couple times by watching the disc and where it stops to see where to grab it with the tweezers), when your ready, hit the eject button and wait a second then stick the tweezers in the slot just far enough until you can grab the dvd with the tweezers. The face of the disc may have a sticker or remaining adhesive from a sticker that is messing with the functioning. You would need to scrape all of it off with a razor blade. (as long it is not the side the recording is on!!) Replace the housing by setting the clips closest to the screen side and the remaining after. screw the screws back in and see if it worked!! If this doesn't fix your problem, call Sharp and ask them if its financial wise to sent in in to them.

The DVD player is in constant eject mode - discs will not stay in to play. It has worked perfectly for years. Tonight I was watching a disc, finished, ejected it and put in another and the player just...

Two possible scenarios: First the optical pick up assembly that read the disc has malfunctioned or the eject button is faulty. Either way it is just cheaper to replace the DVD player with a standalone dvd player connected to one the tv input(s). Too expensive to repair just the dvd player if it is tv/dvd combo. The cost for labor and parts is more expensive these days to repair tvs or dvd player. For around $30 you can just replace...much more cost effective.

Turns out my suspicions wre correct about the DVD player being "sluggish" from lack of use. By continuing to exercise the drive motor by hitting play and eject while simutaneously attempting to insert a disc finally paid off. Now it readily accepts the disc and everything is functioning as designed. Trust me, I'm not going to let it sit idle for anymore extended periods...................baltogas

A DVD is stuck in the player of our Westinghouse LTV-32w

Success! I tried removing the power cable from the TV itself and re-plugging while holding the eject button on the TV (you'll have to turn the power button back on as well). The DVD ejected instantly. Whew...
