I hope it is not too late to provide you the solution to your problem. I have posted on another site with my solution
but to save you the trip I will plug my solution.

My friend had the same problem.
She and her friends tried for two months but it was impossible
to physically pulled the stuck DVD out from the unit.
I was happened to be in the area and she asked me if I
can help her retrieved her movie DVD disc which was stuck inside the MinTek DTV-265-D.

GOOD NEWS! I was successful in getting the stuck DVD disc out of the unit and back into her hands.

Here is what I did to fix the stuck DVD problem:

I. Requirements

a. Tools:
Phillips Screwdriver (magnetic head will be the best)
Tweezers - Only if you don't have a magnetic Phillips screwdriver

b. Surface:
Large flat padded table because you will need it to lay the TV - flat.

c. People:
I did it by myself but having an extra hands is a plus.

II. Instructions

1. Disconnect power cord, power switch button "off" position, unplug cables and video cables from the unit.
2. Place the TV unit flat on the surface - screen on the bottom - Back cover side facing up
3. Back Stand: Remove the TV bracket stand in the back by unscrewing the 8 screws.
4. Back Cover: Unsecured the back cover panel side of the unit - 9 screws (After unscrewing
the screws you might need to use the tweezers to lift and remove the screws.)
5. Back Cover: Carefully lift (unlock) the back cover panel slightly away from the screen unit slowly
because it is wired to the circuit board. In other words, you can't remove it
completely which it is OK and it is not necessary. This back cover panel removal sounds
easy but the cable coaxial connector block it and making it difficulty.
Therefore, you will have to wiggle the cover until it is free and away from the coaxial connector
because you will need some clearance space to access the DVD unit.
6. DVD Unit: Unlock the DVD unit by unscrewing 4 (silver) screws.
7. Now you are set and ready to release your stuck DVD.
An extra hands will be nice to have but two hands is a requirements to do the next couple
of steps.
8. DVD Unit:
On the front side, locate the two (black triangle-shape or arrow shape) slot holders.
They are in a locked position.
Using your fingers lift and hold both sloth holders in the up position.
(You might have to raise these holders (up and down) several times.)
As you are holding up these slot holders please perform the next step (#9).

9. Power:
Push power button on the unit switch "on"
Plug back the power cord into the unit AC inlet
Unit Ready Light: "red" standby light is on
Remote Control: Press the power/DVD button - st the remote to DVD
Unit Ready Light: "Green"

** Important: Step No. 8 and Step No. 9 must be done simultaneously **

10. VIOLA! The DVD disc will automatically slide out of slot from the DVD unit.

You need to take the back off the unit and you'll see the DVD . Take the DVD out . You may damage the DVD ( scratch it) but don't disasemble the DVD carriage or you may not get it back together. Good Luck

Toshiba tv/dvd combo

is there a tiny little hole you can insert a paperclip into around the front of the cd.
if so use a large one if you have it , insert and press hard to eject.
if not then you will need help.
even if you get it out the eject motor belt is likely slipped or broken.

On-screen Menu

Actually, it is not a Projection TV Problem. The problem is with a Mintek DTV-265 26" flat screen digital TV (not projection). I have not yet resolved the problem by unplugging the set, pressing the eject button and replugging in the set nor have I had any other suggetions. The manual clearly indicates Mintek DTV-265 26" (not Mintek DTV-263) but I feel they are very similar; however, the manual does not mention losing/restoring the on screen menu.
