Question about Philips DVDR985 DVD Recorder
My Philips DVD player will not eject the DVD and I don't know how to get it out.
Other than opening the unit and manually working the mechanism to extract the disc, the only possible way is to give the unit a solid tap/whack at the top cover central relative to the position of the disc itself. tough this may sound not so technical, this is based on the assumption that somehow the mechanical portion of your unit is defective or simply stuck.
If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, then obviously, the unit must be opened up.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FIXYA.

When a DVD won't eject, the most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the DVD.
This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or having the belt replaced.
With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) try to find the motor and belt which operates the DVD loading & eject mechanism.
Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting.
Gravity and the weight of the DVD is why you may not have this problem during a load sequence.
Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.
