Re: Disc drawer won't open and sometimes doesn't power...
The disc drawer is broken, there are motors that open the drawer (what you hear when turned on and off) and it must of got damaged by a cd or some other way. If you want to open it, pry it open with your fingers or screwdriver. I had to take the 5 cd holders out to see the problem and there was a cd that jammed everything. But you might not have that, take a look. And the "bye bye" thing is normal but not if it wont go off at all.

Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
Remove your disc from the drive.
Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.
Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.
Either the loading belt or loading gear wheels have the trouble. Sometimes the disc loading mechanism might need replacement. It won't cost mor for the mechanism. But will feel some difficulty in getting it from open electronic spare part market. it will be best to contact the authorised service center for Samsung to get it repaired.
Any decent repair shop should have a large supply of replacement belts. The Part number isn't necessary. Just take the old one in and get a new one just 2mm smaller than the original. Some repair shops won;t sell them because they don't want you repairing your own property but a decent shop should sell you one.
Press the power button on the main unit to switch the unit to standby. When the unit is in standby , press the power button again on the main unit to turn it on. If the unit doesn’t switch to standby, press and hold the power button on the main unit for about 10 seconds to forcibly switch it to standby.
To open the drawer, press and hold STOP and CH UP buttons on the main unit at the same time for about 5 seconds.
Sounds like you have a disc reading problem, in that it can read that there is a disc there, but can't actually read it. May need to have it serviced. If you can't get the disc out, sometimes turning the machine off at the wall, waiting a while, then turning it back on again will spit the disc drawer open. But beware that this may also cause the drawer to lock up. Again, it sounds like it may need to be serviced and have the DVD deck looked at.
To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.
After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.
Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.
