Under teh machine there is an opening near the tray. Look inside adn you will see a small white tab. Use a small tool to reach in their and push it to the other side. That will open the tray.

My SAMSUNG DVD/VCD/CD E235 got stacked. The unit got jammed because my baby boy pushed the tray inwards, with disc in place. Do the following having device unplugged. Unscrew and remove the metal top (x3). Unclip the front plastic cover. Unscrew DVD drive (x3) and disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the DVD drive and turn it upside down. On its black case there are white protrusions from tray mechanism, within guides' grove. Slide them sidewards to release the tray. The belt powering tray mechanism has slipped, in my case. I put everything back in place and got the unit operational again.

Usually, there's a pin hole beneath the tray that come out. If there is a pin hole, get a paper clip or safety pin and insert the pin or clip into the pin hole and push. That should pop the disk tray out.

Phillips DVP 1013 there is a DVD in the tray, but the traywon't open. What should I do?


Try opening the tray manually, there's a hole behind the DVD where you can insert a flat head screwdriver and turn to get the tray open OR your DVD may have a rectangular hole, the hole allows you to turn a little gear from the loading mechanism to unload the tray.
