Easy question: DVD stuck in DVD player will not eject, how do I get it removed>
I have a DVD stuck in the built in player on my new TV. I have searched the TV for some kind of release button but can't find one. How can I get the DVD out??? The opening is so small I can't even get a pair of tweezers in to pull it out. Help please.

That set is a beauty if it is equipped with the built in DVD player--they were all poor quality---only possible but not easy thing is it can be got at by removing entire front grill beneath the front screen and has only a few plugs to actually remove the unit.
I presume you have tried to change inputs with the remote etc.
Please try turning off the tv... wait about 30 seconds, PRESS AND HOLD THE EJECT BUTTON then turn the tv back on again. You can let up on the eject button as soon as it starts to spit out your dvd. This is a standard way to remove disks.
One way i have found is to (no joke) take the back panel off the TV BECAREFUL THERE IS HAZARDOUS VOLTAGE! Look to see if there is a DVD stuck in it, if so remove it. If this doesnt work let me know, i have other possible solutions
This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
Yes, the DVD sleeve is pretty accessible. All you need is a pretty standard phillips screwdriver. First, pull the speaker screen out from the bottom of the tv. Then unscrew the screws necessary to remove the sleeve. I haven't done it a while, but I believe there is one layer before you get to the sleeve. Before ordering a new DVD player, I recommend removing the sleeve and checking for problems yourself. If you're not too tech saavy, perhaps you could call a friend to help? I think maintenance would be a useless waste of money. Good luck, let me know.
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.
You do not mention if you have unpluged the tv from the wall,is the easiest thing to try,if the set resets and still does not open the tray you can still force it open it manually but very carefully just to remove the dvd,if you can not force it open by pulling evenly in both extremes of the tray and you feel the dvd still is not coming out even with the tray open,dont go further and get help from a servicer,we do not want to break the mechanism.(set should be unplug )You can also remove the back cover and see if the main conector to the dvd player can be unplug,if it does you can leave it unplug and try turning the set on.This information might help you make a decision but the best solution will be to disassembly the dvd and remove the stuck dvd without forcing anything.The set is faily new and is worthed the repair.Let Us know how it goes.
