XBV442 DVD door won't open

When I press Eject on the remote or directly on the dvd player, the display says "Open" but nothing happens. The dvd that is in there is being read perfectly, we just can't get it out now.

I tried unplugging it for a few minutes but nothing. I also opened up the door and gently pressed on the tray but that didn't work either.

    I have the same problem. Isn't there a manual override somewhere?

    I tried gently prying it open with a screw driver, but no luck.

DVD door will not open to eject DVD


There could be 2 reasons, 1. Hardware issue 2. Software drivers:
Fixing 1: Hardware
Make sure the DVD is fixed properly in your tower ( I am not sure whether you are using a tower or lappi)

The direct solution is to put a pin i the small hole present on your DVD player. That should open the DVD door.

To fix the software part.
>> Try to update the drivers depending on the operating system you are using.

>> Download the latest drivers to check if it fix the issue.

>> Open the My computer >> Right click on the CD/DVD drive and select Eject, this will normally open the door.

Else, try to uninstall the drivers from Device Manager and then restart the PC once, this will reinstall the drivers once again by its own if your Windows is up to date.

Please do get back to us, if that does'nt fix.

While playing the VHS the player switches from VCR to DVD in the middle of the movie multiple times. We ended up having to tape the DVD player closed because it would turn the player on in the middle of...


Hi, it sounds like either the eject button on the DVD player drawer has been damaged or the remote is in need of cleaning (I assume the remote to have an eject button too). you can remove the remote by removing a battery and seeing if the problem stops.
Best you remove the tape from the DVD drawer as this will not stop the DVD mechanism from trying to open the tray, bit like trying to constantly push against a locked door - you will cause damage if it hasn't already.

Unable to open the door of the dvd --when you press the eject button to open the slot---the door does not open---everything else works


Quick trick

First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.

Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.


if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.

The door to the dvd player is stuck partway open on my zenith vcr / dvd combo player


the gears on the drawer skipped a few teeth. as crazy as this sounds, give it a stern whack back in. if the plastic teeth are flexible enough to skip teeth one way, it'll be flexible enough to skip some the other way.
