There are a couple of things for you to try.
1. Unplug the machine for 60 seconds then plug it back in and immediately press eject repeatedly before it has a chance to load the DVD. Try this several times as it may not work the first time around.

Second suggestion from web:
1. Switch off the unit at the wall plug.

2. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again.

Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens."

Post back if you have success.

I don't know the unit your talking about but I DO know that 1.) sometimes the DVD was put in crooked and get's jammed. Push the eject **** and push IN on the DVD door... it might staighten things out.

Don't put a screwdriver in there and try to wedge it out.... you could do a lot of damage.

Last thought - and ONLY if your comfortable doing this - is take the top off (usually two screews on each side, and take a look. You may see something. But DON'T DO THIS if tinkering is foreign to you. You might get a shock.

If this is an old DVD player, junk it or make an attemt, and if the attemt fails junk it. Let me know how you make out.

Drawer won't open. Says "blocked".


I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover

2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.

4. remove the two top screws on the DVD unit
5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near the front.

6. Now remove the tray, by pulling it out as far as it goes and then pressing two tabs on either side of the tray. These tabs look like this:

7. Now you get at the drive belt. Originally it was black; I replaced it (temporarily) with a red one in the picture below:

8. Now put everything back together.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject


Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!
