    I tried looking for the release button that you spoke of, but there was none. So I took the top off the player thinking that I would know what I was looking at ( ha ha ha). I had no clue, I would have stood a better chance of performing brain surgery in the dark. I then did the Jedi mind trick and the freaking door opened. No joke !! It really opened. I haven't tried to play another DVD yet as the whole ordeal made me too tired. Thanks for your help. I hope that I won't need you in the future, but it's good to have some help in case I do.

Most players will have a small hole on the front panel where you can access the manual release using a paperclip. I checked your Owner's Manual, and didn't see any mention of it, but most every DVD player I've ever seen has one. Hope this helps.

    Did you happen to notice if the DVD was jammed in the drawer? If it was jostled enough, you might have freed it up, allowing it to open on its own. If it works normally, going forward, consider yourself very fortunate. If it doesn't, it may need minor repairs (if there is such a thing these days).

Disc is stuck in the tray - samsung dvd R130

Without knowing more of your specific situation, it sounds like the disc is physically stuck and is blocking the motor mechanisms from ejecting. There should be 1-2 screws on each side & one at the rear of the player to remove the outer casing. When you open it, any obstructions should be obvious. The screws should be easy to figure out with an arrow pointing to them stamped into the medal, kindof looks like: =>

No disc kicks disc out

I have the problem of it refusing the disc if the door opens before I have filled the whole disc and finalized it. As long as I don't open the door till the disc is full and finalized, it works.

Sounds like the spindle motor is not running up to par. Possibly the lens needs cleaning as well.
