Sorry, but it sounds like you purchased a piece of junk. You could try updating the firmware.

I inherited a dvd player from a family friend when he died but he no longer had the book for me to code it as it is not a multi region dvd.


Could you please give me the brand and model of your unit so I can further assist you. Thank you.

Disk not ejekt - Philips DVD 5990

Disc Tray Won't Open on Philips DVD Player Model DVP5990/37: The first thing to try is unplugging and turning the unit upside down and finding the slot near the tray port location. Inside the slot you'll see a white plastic piece with a small tab. Use a small knife or ice pick, etc. to slide the tab toward the far side of the unit. This unlocks the tray and should pop it open about 1/4". Place the unit back right side up and plug back in. Hit the open button and it should either close or open depending on it's current cycle, but it should work unless the drive belt is snapped, for which you'll need to remove the outer cover and fix or replace. I'm told there are no factory replacement belts available yet for these machines, however I've used large O-ring seals in place of belts to fix other models of machines. As far as Philips support for this unit, it stinks. Their live and web help features are now useless because all of these models are now "out of warranty" and they remove detailed support postings from their website and from live help stations as soon as they are out of warranty - just when you need such help. I would not recommend any Philips product, as this is my second Philips unit I've purchased new which had serious problems just after a few uses.

My dvd player

You didn't hear it from me, but I've heard you can close the disc tray with no disc in the tray, and enter 138931 on the Philips Remote and when the region code msg displays, change it to 0. Warning: You can only change the region code 3 times in the history of the player, and then you will no longer be able to use the feature. But, you didn't hear that from me.
