    I put a small camcorder DVD in a Toshiba 23HLV84 23 in. TV/DVD Combo, and it won't play but won't eject either. It just makes a grinding noise and the screen says Open then Close. I can't see the disk inside the player and have not been able to fish it out. I can put another 12 cm DVD in beside it but it doesn't help with the ejecting

Yes you will have to take it apart and most likely lift the top off the cdplayer to get at it.

Hello, my Westinghouse tv/dvd combo will not accept a disc. We had previously, through small children, had three dvds stuck in the dvd slot. But had just gotten them out. We then tried to play a dvd to...

* Check your warranty and call for service. There are no customer replacement parts in this type of "combo" unit.
*** Following is for information only ***
* DVD section is usually a "Snap-Assembly" system when built at the factory. Pulling and prying on this type of device will "Snap open" parts. Your best bet is to have the unit replaced.
* Yes, it's possible to take the DVD apart and reconnect the disassembled part. But in addition to not knowing how it is originally assembled, there is a strong possibility that it won't go back in the correct way.
* There is probable damage to the DVD "reader" and LED "LAZER" device that runs just above the DVD. With the DVD disk spinning at a high rate. It is probable the read head crashed into the disk(s) and caused damage to read head and DVD disk.
* Final; If you can still use the TV portion. Check for alternate A/V input. (Yellow, Red, White, RCA jacks) or HDMI input. There are many "Stand alone" DVD players on the market. The last one I bought 10 years ago was $30 at WalMart. I'm sure they are even cheaper models now. You may also want to look into getting another TV set as most cable TV providers have switched to all Digital "High Def" input and don't support the "Channel 3" or Analog TV system.

PS; If you do get a new DVD player. Be aware that the DVDs have been upgraded to "Blu-Ray" disks. Your old DVD player may not have been able to play these newer disks. I found the following players on line:

I accidentally put 2 dvd's in my Westinghouse combo player, and now they are stuck....ugh! help pls

The DVD player section will have to be un-assembled. If you are not experienced at this get an experienced service tech to do this. The set will have to be opened up, and most likely the DVD module removed to take it apart.

There is a slight change the DVD unit may have been damaged, and require replacement.

When I was working doing TV and DVD service, I have seen this done before. There is maybe a 30% change the drive will have to be replaced.

5 yr old Westinghouse TV w built in DVD player. DVD player won't play. Tried several different movies, none will play.

First thing I would check is that you are playing regular DVDS and not BluRay. Your TV may be old enough not to accept BluRay. If it doesn't work with a regular DVD then you most likely have a bad reader which can be replaced but you will have to take the tv apart to get to it.

Westinghouse 42"lcd dvd player

We got a disk stuck in our Westinghouse also. After aticking toothpicks and butter knifes in there trying to get it out, we were told to unplug the power and plug it back in and try. When we did we could hear the DVD trying to come out. We stuck the butter knife in there and got it to pop up and out. We havent tried to put another one in but when we do we know how to get it out now.

My dvd always shows "system error" and won't play commercial copyright dvds, only recorded ones.

I had the same problem with my recorder except that it wouldnt play any discs at all.. I finally unplugged the recorder and left it unplugged for 16 hours. Now it is fine. I am not getting any error messages.
