You didn't say whether the unit was powering on or not. If there are numbers in the display but the unit will not eject the disc, try holding down the STOP button on the remote for 5 or 10 seconds. This will sometimes act as an EJECT command.
If the display does not come on when you plug it in and try to turn it on, the player has probably died. The only way you can get at the disc is to extract it by opening the Magnavox case. Sometimes you can just slide the disc out of the carrier, but usually you will have to look for an exposed gear and use a screwdriver to manually turn it. Push the gear clockwise, and it should lower itself and unlock the tray, which will then start to slide out. Don't force it. If it will not budge, try counter clockwise, or look for a different gear.
I think your DVD player is trying to read the disk, but it can't. Try unplugging the unit. Holding down the eject button and plugging it back in. After it begins to to power up you can release the eject button. What your wanting to do is to get it to eject before it tries to read the disk. Good luck.
Remove the cover of LVW and access the dvd assy,unscrew the 4 screws
holding the dvd assy to the LVW bottom. Remove the top and bottom shield
(also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws). You
will access the dvd spindle. Remove the dvd
The electronic procedure: Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On
the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons
at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the
wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.
Hi, I found this site today cos I had a similar problem. To cut a long story short I found a slot on the bottom of the machine, below the disc tray, that has a white lever in it. After removing the power source I moved the lever to the side and the tray opened manually so I could remove the disc. It seems It was a duff DVDR as other discs now work fine. Good luck !
"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my
Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but
unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.
I finally got it to boot:
Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be
patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the
powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally
at the next try.
I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting
process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject
button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know
when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject
