I purchased this combo unit for my mother who is in a nursing home. It "ate" a DVD and will not eject it so I am assuming the servo mechanism is stuck. I'm told the nurse tried unplugging the unit to reset, but it didn't help. It is her sole source of entertainment so I don't want to ship it back to Magnavox and it is past the 30 day Best Buy exchange window and I live on the opposite coast. Any way to jump start this player unit so it will eject? Thank you

hi bob you can see a video on this repair on you tube,the manual can be downloaded from westinghose.com ,it may be simpler to purchase a unit off ebay and replace the whole unit ,i had to do this with a insignia 26 , dvd combo. good luck geodaws
Tries the tv unplug/replug the tv back for about an hour later for the tv power to reset itself.At this time u will able to eject the DVD disc out.Don't tries to used the tv intergrated DVD player anymore.The tv intergrated DVD player laser head and the spin motor for the dvd disc spinner it is defective now.Buy a portable cheap or a moderate unit of a outer DVD player and hook up to the tv AV input.Play it through the tv input video 1,2,3 u should have a DVD player capatablities again.
I am not sure what others have told you, but I can only guess as they did. There can be many issues that can cause this and without having it in my hands I can only guess.
It could be a bad ejector motor that activated the eject mechanism, a bad mother board that does not tell the system to eject the disc, or something could be physically jammed in the unit! A belt to the mechanism could have come off as well. The eject button may not be working. If this is only 2 months old, why havent you contacted the place of purchase or at least the manufacture for warranty on this. If you take it apart and attempt a repair, then this will void any warranty you have.
I can only suggest you do a reset on the set and its memory. Unplug the unit and let it set for several hours, maybe over night and the plug it back in and see if there was something in the memory locking up the player. If this does not work, then you can take it in for warranty work, or get back with us on how to take it apart and look for causes.
your cet is saying to you that it can only play dvd of a certain region.you need to purchase a dvd player that can play all region dvds. buy a samsung, panasonic or sony all region dvd player they will be able to play all your dvds.good luck.
Two possible scenarios: First the optical pick up assembly that read the disc has malfunctioned or the eject button is faulty. Either way it is just cheaper to replace the DVD player with a standalone dvd player connected to one the tv input(s). Too expensive to repair just the dvd player if it is tv/dvd combo. The cost for labor and parts is more expensive these days to repair tvs or dvd player. For around $30 you can just replace...much more cost effective.
It is usually a complete unit mounted inside.Don't stick anything in the slot to try to get it out.You'll end up damaging the unit and have to replace it.If you are mechanical,then you can remove the unit.Take the cover off,then manually eject the disc.That means finding the small motor that runs the mechanics and turning it by hand.Very slow process,but if your patient and take your time to get the disc out , then reinstall it and it will reset itself and should be ok.
