Lay the TV, face down on a folded towel. Remove all the screws. Note: there is one perimeter screw with machine threads; all the others are the same.

Remove the four black screws from this area:


Then you can pop the back loose and slide it towards the end where the black screws were. It just lifts off and there are no wires attached.


Now you can see the DVD player. I used the end of a plastic pen to shove against the edge of the DVD that you can see through this slot.


Press on the DVD's edge until you see it come out the entry slodvd stuck in dvd - 9903440.jpg />9903440.jpg

You can see the DVD slide out the entry slot as you are pushing.

When done, slide the back into place and replace the screws.

How do I remove a stuck DVD?

It sounds like your problem isn't the dvd is stuck, since it seems to be spinning up, it sounds more like your ejection system has stopped working for some reason.
To fix either you are going to have to remove the outside case of the dvd player and expose the internal chassis. There are anywhere from 4 to 8 screws holding it on on the bottom and back of the unit, Make sure the dvd player is unplugged before you remove the cover.
Once you have the cover off, if the dvd is simply stuck, you should be able to see what the issue is; is it misaligned in the housing was it inserted incorrectly, are there in fact 2 dvds in the player, etc, etc. Gently remove the dvd and replace the case and enjoy.
If you can't see any reason for it to be stuck it may be the ejection system. The eject system will have a belt and sprocket system to move the tray or push out the dvd depending on the player. Make sure the belt is on the wheels correctly and that the sprockets mesh properly. If you can't see anything wrong try testing the ejection system with the case off.
Make sure you don't have any objects in or touching the dvd player, you don't want to short out any of the components if a screw fell into the dvd player onto the mother board, etc. Plug the dvd player back in, make sure you don't touch the inside and try to eject the dvd. Watch the ejection system and you should be able to figure out what is going wrong. Once you have figured it out unplug the unit and put the items back together. If you can see that something is broken then you will have to determine if you can have it fixed or if it wouldn't be cheaper to simply ditch that unit and purchase a new one.
Hope this helps.

2 dvds in built-in player

I have come across this a few times, one in fact last week!! The back needs to be removed from the back and the dvd section removed, Dont be afraid this is quite easy to do. lie the tv down face first and remove the stand and all screws, then remove the DVD section, should be 5 x screws and some leads that just clip off.
Then you will need a small screwdriver or a knife to prize the second dvd out, this may scratch your dvd but its better than your dvd player being broke!
Once out place the dvd player back in the set then re-screw it plug the leads back in and turn the set on and try to eject the first dvd, this should now be ok.
Once done, turn the tv off and replace the back on.
Just take your time and Obviously make sure the tv is not plugged in when removing the DVD.
Hope this helps

Two DVD's stuck in Toshiba Regza with built-in DVD player

If you can find a piece of stiff wire, put a small 90 degree bend onto one end and try to hook the edge or middle of the DVD drawer and pull out the drawer. It will resist a bit but should come out.

DVD player won't eject

No but I'm having same problem and the dealer sugested just buying a new dvd player cause cost of repair or replacement is unbelivably high,approx 500 canadian for new dvd sleeve, the guy tells me they don't fix them they just put a whole new dvd player in from hthe manufacturer. Pretty disapointing considering how nice it is to have it built in.
