If you are comfortable taking the cover off, you can try removing the cover and remove the dvd's yourself.

IF you are not comfortable removing the cover then, you can try to take a credit card (Actually, if you have any of those JUNK credit cards that the CC companies send out as trial offers, those work the best, and who cares if you bend those, they get tossed anyway) and bend an edge at a 90 degree.. (about 1/8" of the edge) so it makes like a small ledge. try to fit it inbetween the top of the door, and then see if you can open it up. Some players have a seperate door, and some trays are attached to the door. You might be able to help it out or unjam the tray this way.
And in the Future, with any other CD/DVD Players, use your remote control or the open and close button to open and close the tray, and NEVER Push on the tray itself. If I had a dollar for every dvd player tray that Ive fixed because of this, I would be buying bill gates dinner. (not really, but you get my point)
Good luck.

I have a new samsung bd-f5700 player and tray won't open. Tried using the remote to open & the panel on top of player to open. Nothing works.


First, try resetting your player. Unplug it from wall for at least 1 full minute, then plug it back in. If eject function (remote or top panel) still doesn't work:

MOST DVD players (including every one I have ever worked on or owned) have a tiny manual eject pinhole located close to the tray. You may have to gently open the flip door to see it. It is usually to the right of the disc slot, but could be underneath or elsewhere close by (use a flashlight, it can be hard to see). Carefully insert a straightened paper clip in the pinhole to eject the disc. (It shouldn't matter if machine is on, but for safety I usually do this with the machine OFF and unplugged).

see http://www.ehow.com/how_2324439_eject-stuck-dvdcd-drive.html
or
http://www.ehow.com/how_2036594_fix-dvd-player.html
and http://www.ehow.com/how_6330619_retrieve-jammed-cd-dvd-player.html

If above fails, your only recourse is likely the disassembly of the machine (search "dvd disc stuck" on Google or YouTube), or taking your machine to a repair person. Best of luck to you.

DVD stuck in my Panasonic DMR-E30


Hi Rock.

I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.

I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.

The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.

Thanks

smeags.

A dvd is stuck in the player and the eject button won't release the dvd. The dvd in the machine can be played (in other works the dvd player works) but if you press eject nothing happens.


Hi.I do not know if you can do it but no other way..Lets try it..
Please got a screwdriver and open the DVD case from the sides and back. It is simple, just some black screws. Then look in the unit and see and gently remove the disks by plastic holder open and sliding the disks out.

Then put the cover back on and put the screws back in. Should Work fine now.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and

Our Samsung DVD-H1080 DVD Player wont open, we've had it for a while, but the place where it opens is stuck, help??


Are you using the remote or touch button on case to eject tray?
Sometimes the top lid gets warped and prevents the tray from opening. Press eject and lift the front part of the lid at the same time.

I put in a DVD and will not go beyond "loading". disk door will now not open. The VCR operates just fine.


sounds like a bad pickup laseror it might even be dirty I would try to eject the disk if it does not want to eject I would do it manually by take the top off and taking the disk out then try to open it again if it does not seem to move then the motor on the ejector might be stuck or bad. First I would check that run a good cleaning disk and see if that helps if it does not looks like you have to make a decision to repair or replace the unit.


thanks please do rate the solution

Can't open dvd drawer


Hi,

try putting a Blunt knife into the top of the dvd drawer, or where you can get a knife in.
And gently prise the drawer open whilst pressing eject on the Player.
Failing this, you will have to *****disconnect from the mains***** remove the screws on the rear of the casing, remove the top cover, and take out the DVD Disk.
Replace then plug back in, to check if the player is Ok.

**** Only remove the casing if you feel competant**** And if the player has no guarantee Or Warranty****

Two dvd's stuck in player thanks to a busy toddler


I had the same problem... my DVD took one in even though it already had one in there... Tweezers did not work until we used a pie server covered in masking tape with the DVD attempting to eject and then grabbed one DVD out. The DVD player works too!

DVD Stuck


Although, this particular model does not have a pinhole in the faceplate or anywhere else for that matter, we solved that problem simply by unplugging the whole machine, waiting one minute, and plugging it back in. This is Dysney's quoted response for "rebooting" and troubleshooting such a problem and it worked for us when the same thing happenned.
