DVD DRAWER won't open

I assume the display does not say 'locked' when you press eject.
A DVD drawer is run by a small rubber belt on most of these old machines. This belt can be worn out (Very common)
The DVD drawer position is detected by a switch that can be pressed in or out to detect the drawer is closed or open. This switch can cause the drawer to stay in if it thinks the drawer is not yet closed. Cleaning the switch (Take the DVD drive out and remove and clean or replace the switch) can usually fix this.
A fault with the DVD process cicuit board can also cause this. I would recommend a new machine if this is the case.
Bad belt - the DVD drawer shifts a bit when the eject button is pressed.
Bad switch - a whirring sound can always be heard when the DVD is first powered on. May give an error in the display.
Bad process board - Generally, says open forever or close forever and will not change back to normal display. You cannot get any other functions to work after you press eject. Unplug the machine, its normal until you press eject again. (just a generic common thing)

Ihave a Cyderhome dvd player, and i cannot get it to play.The green light on but cannot get the tray to open,what can i do ?

You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.

DVD - Not Ejecting

look closely at the drawer that will not open and you will see a small hole. Straighten out a small paperclip and push one end of the wire into the hole. That hole is the manual release.

I found the answer on your site. Unplug, wait a minute and plug it back it in, then press Play followed by Eject.

Keeps ejecting dvd

Does it also do this without a DVD in the drawer? Does the drawer open even when it's empty or only when it has a DVD on the tray?

Trutech t600-d dvd player

Only a temporary solution....
Target sells a scam with their Trutech brand, this entire line deserves a recall, nobody is getting support or refunds. NOTHING. Target deserves a class action suit against them.
In the time-being, your DVD player probably still can play movies, just that the drawer gets stuck. What is happening is, the mechanism that raises the DVD to be scanned when the disc is in doesn't lower properly so when the drawer is supposed to eject, it is held back. You can manually eject this.
The cheap flip-down door is flexible so when you press the center of it, the outside edges become bowed and can be pulled down with a fingernail. Under the drawer (you may need some light to see for the first time), about 1/2" from the left inside, there is a black plastic wheel. Using a paperclip, you can catch the "teeth" on this wheel and turn it counter-clockwise (from left to right) and this will lower the mechanism and likely your tray will automatically eject.
You might be surprised that after this, your tray will open and close fine consecutively by hitting the eject button. But keep in mind, the problem is the mechanism that raises the DVD to be read is what holds back the eject from working.
Do yourself a favor and scream at Target. Make yourself heard, everyone is having problems with this line.

Dvd recorder doesn't eject disc

Yes, I'm having the exact same problem -- I can't eject the dvd that's in the player right now either manually or remotely. It plays fine.
