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

SOURCE: DVD Drawer / VHS Eject button

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.

Eject dell e6420

Eject what a Cd or DvD? If you can't get it to eject by pressing the eject on the drawer, try opening My Computer, then right click on the CD/DvD drive and select Eject. If it still does not eject you will need to straighten out a paper clip, get on your knees and look for a tiny hole on the cd drawer. Stick the paper clip into that tiny hole and push the drawer open.

I can't take out CD from the DVD drive. When I right click on my computer/E-drive the laptop stops(hangs?).

Welcome to Fixya.

Here are my recommendations for you to eject the disc out of the DVD drive.
  • Get a paper clip
  • Turn off the computer
  • Take a close look on the DVD drive, you should find a tiny hole where a paper clip's end can be fitted.
  • Straighten the end of the paper clip and carefully jam it in the hole
  • This should eject the disc from the drive and you can use the DVD drive as normal
Possible cause of this can be attributed to improper inserting of the disc (or anything similar).

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cd won't eject on my vaio vpceb1e0e

all laptops I've ever seen have a tiny pinhole somewhere in the door of the cd/dvd player---you push a straightened out paper clip in that hole, and push it straight in until you see the door give a little. This is a manual override for the software eject. It might take a couple of tries, but you'll know when you've hit the right spot...hope this helps, I've done this many times with success, and so can you!

Cannot eject cd.

I assume you have tried the usual method of ejecting by pressing eject on tray. If this fails get a large paper clip (or similar) and straighten it out. Make sure machine is switched on, insert paper clip into tiny hole on cd tray near eject button and push into hole. This should open tray. That is the purpose of this tiny hole. Hope this helps!
