The dvd has loaded into the tray and closed, the dvd wirs around as iff it is seeking a start point. After several minutes it stopped. I tried to eject the disc, have switched the system onmn and off and pressed every combination of buttons to get it to do something. The disc is stuck, the drawer is closed, the disc will not play - is there a manual eject button somewhere - BOSE Lifestyle 28 system.

Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
Remove your disc from the drive.
Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.
The DVD tray has come off the alignment or settings which make it come OFF the mechanism. So you will need to push back the drawer back to the set position and this might be possible only after the loading mechanism is pulled out. The loading gear would have meshed with the loading drawer at mid way -due to the pull--and so it connecting only half way.
If mechanically minded you can remove the tray mechanism and reset the tray to the gear position in the DVD play/stop position.
Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt
Yes, it was a piece of the addhesive dot that was stuck to the back of the disk. I unplugged the unit (of course), removed the 10 screws holding the cover on the chassis and that exposed the disk in its tray. I could not manually open the tray still, but I was able to remove the tape dot from the disk while it was still in its tray. All is well now.
You seem to have two different problems. The tray won't open and a DVD won't play. First use the emergency eject slot on the bottom of the unit to eject the DVD. Now test the drawer by seeing if the drawer will auto close when you push the drawer closed without a DVD. If you hear the loading motor running but the drawer will not close than check the loading motor drive belt. Also check the 12V and 5V power supply outputs. Low voltages are caused by bad filter caps.
I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.
I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.
What you might of done is pushed the dvd tray to close it, so its out slightly.Come across it a couple of times. all i did was, open the tray & before it started to close, switched off the power. pull the tray until it opens fully(dont yank it). when its fully open, try to pull it very slightly more. plug it back in & let it go back its self, if it doesn't. push it. all thats happened is its just out slightly. messing about with it like this will sort it im sure. let us know how you get on. firstname.lastname@example.org
