    I have the same issue. We put in a copied video disc that had no menu option. It started to play after pressing play, then it froze. After that, we're unable to eject the disc.

    BOSE 321 GS. CD door will not open. As other person mentioned the unit makes a sound as if it is trying to open but never does. I have already tried unplugging sub woofer from the wall, waiting 2 minutes, and pressing the stop/eject button when the unit is re-powered to no avail. Any more suggestion. Unit is about 3 years old.

    Ditto. I have the same problem. The door suddenly stopped working - just makes noise and would not open. Tried unplugging device and rebooting - still not working.

Disconnect the main power, wait a while, and then re-connect power. My system re-booted and the disc then ejected properly.

If press eject button,it's showing LOCKED.what can i do?

You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

DVD got stuck

Try unplugging it and then wait 10 minutes. Power it up again and try the controls. Another approach: If it is an older model it may have a small hole near the drawer. You can stick a paper clip end in the hole and trigger a drawer opening response on some DVD players.

Dvd drawer will not open

Manually open the tray. It's possible that you have a dvd stuck in the drawer because it wasn't fully seated. Look at at the front of the drive and you will see a tiny hole. Take a paper clip or safety pin, stick it in the hole and push. You will see that the drawer will pop out and you can retrieve your stuck dvd. Thanks for using

DVD drawer stuck out

Try to unplug the unit from its power source, give it a minute then plug it back in.If open appears on the window, hit the eject button. See if that will work for you. If that dont work, hit source and on at the same time, then eject if open appears in the window. That should close the draw for you.

Bose 321 DVD System

I love my Bose 321 DVD system, but a few days ago, it started acting weird. I put in a DVD, and it reads - "No Disc".....and I'm not sure why. I cleaned the disc, and I also played a DVD/CD Maintenance kit - I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems like I have a problem within the system - what can I do?
