    My T600-D TruTech DVD player is broken too. The DVD tray won't open. I had to unscrew all of the screws and take the player apart to get the DVD out.
    I often leave the DVD player on overnight. I wonder if something inside got too hot and caused a component to fail.

    Does anyone know of a website that troubleshoots this DVD player and offers a solution to fix it?

Only a temporary solution....
Target sells a scam with their Trutech brand, this entire line deserves a recall, nobody is getting support or refunds. NOTHING. Target deserves a class action suit against them.
In the time-being, your DVD player probably still can play movies, just that the drawer gets stuck. What is happening is, the mechanism that raises the DVD to be scanned when the disc is in doesn't lower properly so when the drawer is supposed to eject, it is held back. You can manually eject this.
The cheap flip-down door is flexible so when you press the center of it, the outside edges become bowed and can be pulled down with a fingernail. Under the drawer (you may need some light to see for the first time), about 1/2" from the left inside, there is a black plastic wheel. Using a paperclip, you can catch the "teeth" on this wheel and turn it counter-clockwise (from left to right) and this will lower the mechanism and likely your tray will automatically eject.
You might be surprised that after this, your tray will open and close fine consecutively by hitting the eject button. But keep in mind, the problem is the mechanism that raises the DVD to be read is what holds back the eject from working.
Do yourself a favor and scream at Target. Make yourself heard, everyone is having problems with this line.

DVD player only plays DVD in black and white - what's wrong?

I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?

Dvd only playing in black and white

Make sure that you connect all of these connections to the right colored cables.

It seems like you only have the green cable connected. Go back and connect the red and blue for both the tv and dvd.

I have the T600-D DVD player. The unit's door will not open leaving my movie stuck in it. I have used the equipment probably not more than 5 times. I do not appreciate TruTech not having a phone number or person that could help or give instructions when there is a problem with one of their products. When I tried to call the number listed in the warranty booklet, I was directed to call a (900) number which would cost me $9.00 per minute. This is unacceptable business ethics. I tried to return the unit to Target, but because the 90 days had passed, they could do nothing about your product. Maybe I should post a sign by TruTech items stating that you do not stand by your products, so it would be advisable not to purchase any of them.
