    I disconnected for several hours and this did not work I banged on it and it did not work .So I was disconnecting everything to open the top and banged it against the table disconnecting the wires and it spit out the DVD. Just needed a bigger hammer and now I am motivated to buy a new DVD player and not a GO.

Hi,

If I may add to melnavz post.

Possibly two (2) reasons:
1. Firmware (software) glitch. Pls try do a reset, unplug the unit from the mains for a considerable time (hours) and thereafter try it again.
2. Hardware. The disc may not have seated itself properly and therefore causes a jam of some sort. You need to open the top cover and physical dislodged/remove/set the disc if this is the case. Alternately, it may be due to stuck up eject motor/gear or worn/cut belt or even dried up lubrication, dirt, dust. Still you need to open the unit. In some instances, giving it a gentle tap (or whack) on the side may aid in the eject process. Of course this is not a sound technical practice however, others have reported to have solved mechanical problems similar to this using the whack/tap method.
If you are not comfortable opening the unit or with the tap method, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified repair technician.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned oout or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

It seem that your stuff had a big problem on it. It means that the optical lens is damage. However u can try fixing that by cleaning the optical lens inside the rom. and try examine all the buttons of the system maybe some are damage or freeze up.

GoVideo DV2140 DVD/VCR Combo Player/Recorder can i copy vhs to dvd on this product


The GoVideo DV2140 does not contain a DVD writer. It can only play DVDs and copy them to VHS tape.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual is available at ManualsLib here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/61649/Govideo-Dv2140.html .

Hi, it sounds like either the eject button on the DVD player drawer has been damaged or the remote is in need of cleaning (I assume the remote to have an eject button too). you can remove the remote by removing a battery and seeing if the problem stops.
Best you remove the tape from the DVD drawer as this will not stop the DVD mechanism from trying to open the tray, bit like trying to constantly push against a locked door - you will cause damage if it hasn't already.

DV2140 DVD player door will not open.


Most manual overrides involved pressing and holding either the eject button or the power button on the machine itself (not the remote). Try those first.

If that doesn't work reply with the following info:
Will your system turn on/off?
Are you able to play the disk that's in the drawer?

DVD DOOR AND VCR DOOR WILL NOT OPEN, DOES NOT EJECT TAPES OR DISK


I have had some luck in unplugging the machine for five or ten and then trying again. I have spent five to ten minutes trying to get the darn thing to spit out the disk and it refuses. Unplugging either gives me time to cool off or it helps the machine :)
