Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds to turn off the unit. Pull the DVD door down, and use a paper clip to turn the white gear counter clockwise. The DVD tray should come out after about 5 full revolutions of the gear. Press the open button to reset the unit.

    It works. Thanks for solving my problem. I was contemplating taking the cover off and manual extracting the disc, but this process saved me from having to do that. Thank you!

How do I remove a stuck DVD?


It sounds like your problem isn't the dvd is stuck, since it seems to be spinning up, it sounds more like your ejection system has stopped working for some reason.
To fix either you are going to have to remove the outside case of the dvd player and expose the internal chassis. There are anywhere from 4 to 8 screws holding it on on the bottom and back of the unit, Make sure the dvd player is unplugged before you remove the cover.
Once you have the cover off, if the dvd is simply stuck, you should be able to see what the issue is; is it misaligned in the housing was it inserted incorrectly, are there in fact 2 dvds in the player, etc, etc. Gently remove the dvd and replace the case and enjoy.
If you can't see any reason for it to be stuck it may be the ejection system. The eject system will have a belt and sprocket system to move the tray or push out the dvd depending on the player. Make sure the belt is on the wheels correctly and that the sprockets mesh properly. If you can't see anything wrong try testing the ejection system with the case off.
Make sure you don't have any objects in or touching the dvd player, you don't want to short out any of the components if a screw fell into the dvd player onto the mother board, etc. Plug the dvd player back in, make sure you don't touch the inside and try to eject the dvd. Watch the ejection system and you should be able to figure out what is going wrong. Once you have figured it out unplug the unit and put the items back together. If you can see that something is broken then you will have to determine if you can have it fixed or if it wouldn't be cheaper to simply ditch that unit and purchase a new one.
Hope this helps.

DVD stuck in my Panasonic DMR-E30


Hi Rock.

I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.

I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.

The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.

Thanks

smeags.

CD is stuck inside of a tv/dvd player


Try shutting the television off. With the unit turned off, hold the eject button and turn the unit back on. Continue holding the eject button for 30 seconds or until the DVD comes out.
If this doesn't work, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and attempting the above steps.
Hope this helps!

Dvd is stuck in the player- eject button not working


have you tried to see if there is a reset button on your unit? if so then hold the reset button down for a few seconds and then try to eject the cd if that don't work then you might have to get the unit repaired also if you cross the yellow wire with the red wire behind your unit where it connects to your vehicle it will automaticly eject your cd when you turn it on.

DVD Stuck inTV/DVD combo unit


Same here.  Had the TV for about 6 months and had a DVD get stuck for the second time.  Used the same method of unplugging and plugging back in.  Then hitting the Stop/Eject on the side and it came out.  When plugging it back in I could hear the DVD "engage".

DVD will not eject from JVC HR-XVC27U


Disconnect the Power Cord. Open the Case and go to the DVD unit. On the right side of the unit you will see an indentation which is the mechanical portion of the DVD Unit.

Push the indentatation in, it is the eject switch. The DVD unit door opens remove the DVD stuck in the unit.

Put cover back on plug the unit in, insert a workable DVD and all should be OK.

The problem was the unit could not read a Defective DVD which I made and the unit was locked in to reading the DVD.

I hope this helps

Playing recordable dvd


My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.

Stuck dvd in dvd player


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.
