Question about Philips DVDR 520 (DVDR520) DVD+R Storage Media
I can not open the DVD drive to change discs. The player makes noises but the door does not open. Tried to remove the DVD drive but it seems that there is some secret trick to remove the front panel. Is there a way to open the DVD driver manually?
I suggest you may have accidently put another disk in your DVD drive on top of the one used previously without removing it first: I know, I did just that, and the teeth may now be sheared on the drive wheels which means it will probably need replacing with a new one.
To open manually, look for the tiny hole beside the Open/close button just under the drawer and insert a long slim steel probe which will activate a switch to open the drawer. (Have a look among your kitchen utensils, there might be something there).
Hope it works, but you may find you need a new DVD/RW unit, so have a look around in the New Year Sales and use the opportunity to buy the best you can find at a bargain price.

We had the same problem. It seems the DVD tray grease has become thick resulting in sticking tray.
What helped with us was lifting the player on the front about 3 cm and let in fall back in place. The tray opened. With tray open we used hair fohn t warm the greame and make it thin. This worked for us perfectly

Yes, there is a manual way to open it. On most DVD players there is a small hole underneath the door. Push a paperclip in there until the door pops open a little. Then, pull open the door and remove your disk.
