If you have a paper clip handy you can unfold it and use it to stick in the emergency eject hole. If you look on the face of it there will be a tiny hole just big enough for the paperclip...a disc may be jamming it...if you get it out it will likely fix the problem.

Dvd door won't open

Someone is going to have to open the unit to see what is happening--either a disc is jammed inside or a mechanism problem.

Sometimes with unit apart you may be able to gently probe and free the jammed area--possible also something that does not belong there got inside--look closely.

When big buck hunter pro is turned on I'm getting system boot failure. This has happened a few time over the last month. The last time it happed I turned game off and it booted up. This time it is not.

Reimage the hard drive by opening the DVD drive door and inserting the recovery disk, which is obtainable from a distributor such as Betson in the US. Close the DVD drive door and power the game off then on again. Follow any on-screen instructions as the software installs. If this procedure fails or the game still gives trouble, you may have a failing hard drive. You could attempt replacement yourself if you feel up to it, or alternatively send the entire computer unit to a distributor or specialist dealer for testing and possible repair as necessary.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock

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..

Liftmaster 1/2 hp won't open

Turn the gears again by hand like you did and lower the door a couple feet. Now find the 'up limit' on the side of the motor unit and using a small screwdriver turn this about 3 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Now you can go ahead and operate the door.

Rca dcr8060n dvd tray will not open

Your kid did not damage it, try this, apply pressure slowly to the top of the unit about 3 inches from the front of the unit centered above the tray. Press the eject button, I am betting it will open. They seem to have used really crappy dvd drives in this unit and the top magnetic mount does not release cleanly, therefor causing the unit to hang when the door attempts to open.
