Your kid did not damage it, try this, apply pressure slowly to the top of the unit about 3 inches from the front of the unit centered above the tray. Press the eject button, I am betting it will open. They seem to have used really crappy dvd drives in this unit and the top magnetic mount does not release cleanly, therefor causing the unit to hang when the door attempts to open.

Panasonic DMR-HS2. Why doesn't DVD tray open or close and why is there no audio/video output?

Tray movement failure can result from a weakness in electrical or mechanical components.
"hooked up both RCA audio/video outputs to my HDTV". Often the RCA outputs are coded R (right audio), W (left audio), and Y (video). If these are not connected to corresponding inputs on the rear of the TV, you will not hear/see much.
Do I need to use a(n) RF modulator to connect to my HDTV to see video? No

Dvd tray will not open or play


The reason your player keeps reading a disc and do not play is because the the disc tray is not sitting the disc properly on the lens.

The disc tray is faulty, the mechanism that controls the opening and closing of the tray is damaged and needs repair.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover of the player.

You will see a mechanism by the opening of the tray that controls the disc tray.

Get a replacement mechanism and change it. Mostly the rubber slacks and does not control the tray properly.

Changing the mechanism will solve the problem.

Take care

I have an RCA DVD/VHS combo with TVG. The DVD

This is a work-around rather than a solution. We put an audio CD in the tray and after closing the tray the unit begins to play the music. After waiting a few seconds we open the tray and quickly substitute a DVD and it loads OK. We had also tried cleaning the player to no avail. The CD approach is a pain but it does allow us to play DVDs. Jim

If there is any pin point holes around or on the disk tray then take a push pin and push in the hole the tray should manualy pop open. from there you would have to pull the tray completely open. if not. it could be a faulty motor. in which case you will have to get the tv or dvd player replaced. not worth fixing if it is under warrenty. if not. you are better off letting go and moving on.
