LG DT 585W Combined DVD & VHS - DVD will not eject

I have heard that there is likely to be some override similar to the tiny hole in a computer CD player to allow access when powered off.......have not been able to find one for this "home entertainment" system and would be grateful for any sensible directions.

OK, so that will get the door open, now to solve the underlying cause....

Is there a particular mechanism I should be looking at that is likely to be having a problem ?

I am a Sewing Machine mechanic with a FixYa Guru status, so not afraid to dive in......if I know the depth !

Many Thanks

My 1st suggestion is to pull the AC power plug from the wall, wait 5 minutes (have a smoke or a coffee) and plug it back in.
Then retry the functions that are giving you grief.
Report back with the results and we'll go from there.

** Please re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you, there may be several other possibilities.

SOURCE: Unit won't open compact disc door

hi your problem sounds like the flap has come off the runners or become jammed if you remove the case by undoing all the screws if you cant get to the dvd with the case off then plug it in and it will open as the flap will be conected to the case the screws should be located down either side might be 2 or 3 screws running down either side towards the bottom also on the back their might be a couple of screws also but look first in case their isnt you should see the screww going through the outer casing.
Once you have removed all the screws then the case will either lift off by pulling upwards or some of them will slide off if it dont lift off the hold the case either side and pull the case towards you from the front not the back it should slide of forwards let me know how you get on ok or if you need further assistance

SOURCE: door wont open

Look, if ur unit is out of warranty you may as well do this anyway, its not hard at all. Firstly, unplug from power source!! Thats important, then simply unscrew case, remove case. remove the four screws holding the dvd section to the case. remove the following four screws that are right beside the four screws you just removed that are holding the dvd section together. now unplug the ribbon that has "2" written on it (to the right of the dvd section. now unplug the cord from the power supply (the one running to the dvd section) but only at the first point. now raise the back end of the dvd section, lift up two little plastic flaps clipping it in and slid it out just enough to take of the case off and remove dvd. put back together in reverse order remembering to reconnect all ribbons and cables. connect to power and bobs ur aunt.

P.s. I do not hold myself responsible for any damage you cause to your unit or yourselves. Hope it helps, Murder-face.

SOURCE: Clicking sounds when playing VHS tapes

On one hand I would say not to be concerned about the clicking since nothing seems to be affected. However, if the noise is loud enough to be a bother, or for your own peace of mind, consider returning it to the retailer for exchange if you still have that option. I've heard clicking sounds from other VCRs because of some of the moving parts and it's been nothing to worry about. But I'm not familiar with the guts of your model, so I can't say it's not a sign of some problem that might get worse over time. It's your call. Not really a "solution" I know, but without opening it up for myself and looking for the source of the noise it's the best I can offer.

How do I open my CD Tray and remove a trapped DVD? The Display shows "Locked", everytime I try to press eject button on the Receiver.


Unplug the machine. Have a look behind the tray flap. there should be a very small hole to push a paperclip or similar into to release the tray.

How to get a dvd tray unstuck


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Can't get green standby light to stay on, so can eject DVD from combined TV and DVD player.


First try unplugging and plugging back in then remove caseing and insert paper clip under locking mechanism and hit eject...your locking mechanism signals that there's no cd in it and so to it there's no dvd or cd...hope that helps:)

A dvd is stuck in my DVR how do I get it out the tray will not open


If you take a look at your computer's DVD or CD drive tray, it should have a tiny round hole. Look close because it's only about 1/16-inch in diameter. Does your DVR disc tray have a similar tiny round hole?

This hole is for ejecting the tray if there is no power. You take a paper clip and unfold and straighten it and insert it in the hole. It should go in about 1/2 to 1 inch before it hits the unlatch mechanism. You shouldn't have to push in very hard to unlatch. If it does unlatch, the tray will pop out about 1/4" and you simply pull it out by hand the rest of the way.

I hope this helps you out.
