Question about Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD Recorder
I have a Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD video recorder. The disc tray appears to be locked. Even if I disconnect the power, or put the DVD in standby, - when the DVD is 'powered' on, it immediately displays the 'playing disc' symbol (as if it has one in its tray), then shows 'BYE' on the DVD. As soon as the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed it repeats the process ... and we can't therefore open the tray? Any ideas please
My tray will not close

I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.
With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.
If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.

SOURCE: I have a Panasonic DMR-HS2
The device is damaged, if you have warranty take it to the shop or a local repair shop / center.
It might have been caused by a power surge, Id recommend buying a surge protector to all the sockets where you have valuable devices connected.
