My unit will not eject a DVD and will not play it. The disc is brand new, so I would like to get it out of this piece of junk. Display has been reading "open" for several days now, but it is not doing anything. I have tried cutting the power and plugging it in again to allow it to recycle through its' start-up program, but that has not helped.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Also... any suggestions of another brand to purchase. I still want to transfer some VHS to DVD, but I think I can do this through my computer, so I'm just looking for a multi-format DVD player/recorder.

Re: Unit won't open compact disc door
Hi your problem sounds like the flap has come off the runners or become jammed if you remove the case by undoing all the screws if you cant get to the dvd with the case off then plug it in and it will open as the flap will be conected to the case the screws should be located down either side might be 2 or 3 screws running down either side towards the bottom also on the back their might be a couple of screws also but look first in case their isnt you should see the screww going through the outer casing. Once you have removed all the screws then the case will either lift off by pulling upwards or some of them will slide off if it dont lift off the hold the case either side and pull the case towards you from the front not the back it should slide of forwards let me know how you get on ok or if you need further assistance

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..
1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
Wait till the unit is at the Samsung logo screen.
2) Open then close the tray, wait to see the No-Disc Message in the top Left Corner
3) Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit code.
In this case Repeat 29334
4) When it works a 1 will appear in the top left corner
5) Press 9 to make it regionless.
6) Press Eject to OPEN to open the disc tray.
7) Press Eject to CLOSE to close the disc tray.
8) Power the unit off
9) Now power the unit on again, it should now read all regions of DVD Disc.
Did you try this? When the unit is on, hold down the power button for 10 seconds or more until the unit powers off. Then, turn the unit back on again. You can try to press the eject key before the unit has time to try to "read."
This is what LG customer service will instruct you to do. I have a LG LDA-511:
1. Unplug your unit. 2. After unplugging, wait a few seconds then press and hold the power button (yes, while the unit is unplugged). This resets the unit. 3. Plug in your unit. 4. Press the eject button.
If the disc does not come out, then you need service from an authorized service representative.
does it act like or sound like it wants to open? This could be a small belt drive that is broken or slipping and not letting the door open. Also theres a cam inside thats driven by a belt or worm gear that if that dosent turn then the disc clamper wont raise up and let the door open or you could have a problem with the motor drive circuit that controls the tray motor and last but not least does the eject button feel like its making contact with the little swith inside or is it a flat feeling as maybe the switch could be broken or out of alighnment with the eject switch? Anywho if you unplug the unit it woulnd hurt for you to open the unit to check the belts worm gear or eject switch but if your not handy andy then I would seek a pro for assistance. Good Luck
