Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
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.

I had the same "Blocked" problem and solved it - by using a rubber band! Unplug the machine and take off the outer cover. Remove the DVD reader and take off the cover to the reader - you can now easily recover the DVD that was stuck in the machine. Now slide out the actual DVD tray, you will have to bend back a couple of restraining bars to get the tray out completely. You should now see a small white wheel which is actually the end of a concealed electric motor. There will also be a larger black pulley which controls the movement of the DVD tray. If there is no band connecting the pulley and the white wheel, that is your problem and I solved it with a small elastic band. Put everything back and turn on, wait for all the messages to clear and press the eject button - the tray opens simples. It has taught me never to force the tray in manually, but to always use the eject/open button.
