DVD keeps ejecting

When I insert a commercially prerecorded dvd it initially accepts the dvd and displays "loading" on the screen. Shortly thereafter however, the dvd is ejected without playing.

I just learned Mintek went out of business and the manual does not address this issue. Thank you for your assistance.

    Page 46 of the owner's manual describes troubleshooting for this problem. "There is no disc in the unit. Put the disc on the disc tray properly with the label side up. Clean the disc. Moisture has condensed in the unit. Remove the disc and leave the unit on for about an hour." None of these solutions worked for our unit. We still are unable to use the internal dvd player. Any suggestions?

I have a DVD that is stuck in my LG television.

Hi,Ok look at the DVD drawer carefully , you will see a tiny hole , this hole is expressly to eject the DVD when the electronic eject has failed . Take an ordinary paper clip and straighten it out . now insert the clip into the hole and press , this will release the drawer mechanism and with it your lost DVD Too easy !!!

Removing the back cover would only allow you access to the frame and shields which must also be removed. Thereafter the DVD deck must be removed and repaired or replaced otherwise the TV will not be usable as it will still be locked in DVD mode. The system is waiting for a trigger pulse from the DVD deck that the disc has been released / ejected before it will accept any command to switch to other sources.

Unplug the unit for an extended period of time (an hour or so). The ides is to discharge and force the system to revert to factory defaults. Thereafter, try the above again. Should that still be not corrective, then perhaps your best bet would then be to consult with and/or seek the services of an authorized Service Center (specially if still under some form of extended warranty) or a qualified professional

if the DVD unit uses a slot type entry, have you tried using a credit card like something to 'fish' / 'jar' the erring disc while pressing on the EJECT button? Spraying with a can of compressed air through a nozzle like tubing may also be considered. The idea is to float the disc to initiate the eject procedures. A likely possibility is that the center hole of the disc is stuck to the spindle of the player.

Good luck and thank you

DVD ejects itself shortly after inserting

If you have tried cleaning the laser lens and the unit does spin,You have a defective laser assy,this is common with these players.If unit does not spin,try spinning it when you insert a disc by hand as this may start the unit spinning,if starts spinning then unit has a bad spin motor.

I made that same mistake. I had to unplug the dvd player, open the dvd door and with a screwdriver turn the wheel under the tray and manually make the tray come out of the door.
Hope it helps
