    i too was not able to get a dvd out of the door ... and it was a rental that had to returned to the video store. if you open the door you can see a white gear. i got a small screwdriver and turned the gear to open the door. it didn't fix the problem, but it did get my DVD out for me.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

    My unit did not have a slot exposing the lever. I took the top case and the face off and opened the tray by moving the wheel with my thumb. I then tore a hole in the bottom to expose the white lever. The tray will usually open if a disk is in it. Sometimes I still have to move the lever through the hole I made to make it open.

    I had the same problem. The technical service suggested me to disconnect completely the unit and press the buttons, On, Open/close and stop during 8 seconds or more, but this didn't work. The only thig that worked was to find the slot exactly as kokicho suggested and move the lever gently with a tooth stick and IT WORKED!

    Thanks Kokicho!

It's not exactly a solution, but I eventually managed to get the drawer open after continuously trying the open/close button. Once it was opened, I gave the drawer a good clean and used compressed air to blow out any debris/dust inside. I inserted a disc and worked it open/closed a few times. I still get a blocked message when there is no disc inserted, so I leave a disc in at all times and every couple of days I work the drawer open/closed a couple of times.

Thanks. Indeed, it works. I my case I have some thick fat on the belt.
And now I have no "Blocked" indication anymore. It opens and closes normal.

SOURCE: Drawer won't open. Says "blocked".

I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover

2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.

4. remove the two top screws on the DVD unit
5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near the front.

6. Now remove the tray, by pulling it out as far as it goes and then pressing two tabs on either side of the tray. These tabs look like this:

7. Now you get at the drive belt. Originally it was black; I replaced it (temporarily) with a red one in the picture below:

8. Now put everything back together.

Portable dvd player says open


It thinks the tray is open. Try to reopen and close the tray. If it still says open, help it close with a finger. Don't force it enough to break the gears.
