Usually when the drive door won't open in either a DVD player or a CD player, it's because someone has put a CD or DVD that was not seated correctly in the tray, and once the tray closed the disc caused it to jam.

The only other causes are the mechanism. If it uses a belt to open the drive tray it may be slipping. There could be a broken or misaligned gear, or the tray may have come off of the track or rail it slides on. In these cases the unit would have to be taken apart and repaired.

If it contains a misaligned disc, you will have to take it apart, and remove the top from the drive. Then remove the disc and reassemble the unit.

If you're really lucky, the manufacturer may have put a small hole at the front of the drive. It almost looks like a pinhole, but slightly bigger. If you push a piece of wire (like a paperclip) into the hole, it may force the tray open for you. However, if there is no hole, the drive will have to be disassembled.

    A parental lock can only be undone by reading the manual, or contacting the manufacturer for instructions on how to disable it.

    Procedures are different for every machine.

    If unplugging it for a couple of hours does not reset it, then you will have to contact the manufacturer.

Bought dvd/vcr dual player with no remote in box

You should contact a service center and they should send you a remote control if you are in the 90day warranty.

Otherwise you could try a universal remote available anywhere.

Multi region dvd unlocker

This can only be done on some dvd players unfortunatly. They are locked to regions because of the video format types that vary from country to country.
