DVD was working fine. Movie ended and pressed the open/close to take dvd out and nothing. The tv screen showed "Loading..." and that's it. The dvd faceplate showed "LOAD" and when we tried to open again, it showed "OPEN" ... and that's it. The tray is somehow stuck and will not open. Tried unplugging and plugging but still nothing.
I had the same problem - unplug first- it is easy to undo all 6 small screws - open it up -plug in and then you can give it a little help to open it. It worked for me, BUT now it will open and close but not play the dvd.

Make sure the batteries in the remote are working (they go in the back of the remote at the bottom).
Turn on the DVD player with the power button on the DP300 itself (lower left). Open the dvd tray either with the remote (press open/close button, upper right) or with the button on the DP300. Put a DVD in the tray and close it with the remote or the button on the DP300. The DVD should load.
Use the arrow buttons in the centre of the remote to select choices from the onscreen menu of the DVD. Press Play (centre of the 4 arrow buttons) to activate the choice you want. For example, if you want to play a movie, use the arrow buttons to go up or down until "play movie" is selected, then hit PLAY, and movie will play. If you want to choose a scene/chapter of the movie, use arrow buttons to go up or down until Scene Selection or Chapter is selected (highlighted), and press PLAY. This should bring up a list of the scenes or chapters. Use the arrow buttons to select the one you want, then hit PLAY, and that scene should play.
If the DVD tray is taking less than 20 seconds to operate, there is likely no problem. If it is taking more, there may be. I think the mechanism that opens and closes the tray is often the first thing to stop working on DVD and CD players.
You are having a loading tray sensor problem. It is a small leaf switch on the under side of the loading tray. It must be having a contact problem. How it works is when you close the tray at the end of the tray's travel this switch closes and shorts sending a signal to the microprocessor to shut down the loading motor, same happens when you press eject. Sounds simple but is little difficult to access for a first timer. One you get to it all you need is some switch cleaning spray ( even WD40 will work wonders ). Take professional help it will just take 10 minutes and will cost you only labor charges. You can mess up the timing if you get it wrong and the loading tray may not work properly.
Switch player on and make sure there is no disc in the tray.

I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.
I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.
DVD loading mechanism doesn't load completely that's why opens after attempt of loading. You need to open top cover of unit and inspect loading belt might be lose, tray timing can be out of phase, some wire got stuck with tray while loading etc.
