Re: have a Toshiba hlv87 tv/dvd combo that will not eject...
I've had the same problem. I called Toshiba support and all they could say was to unplug it. Since I already had done that, they were going to send a service person over for a couple hundred bucks (which they get a cut of) to take it apart. Haa

You may have blown a fuse in which case something else inside is probably shorted. Check diodes and transistors near the blown fuse if you know how. If you're not comfortable working on electronics I would check the phonebook for a hometown TV repair shop. They may be nice enough to retrieve your movies for you at a minimal charge and maybe give an idea of how much to fix the set. Good luck.
No,tv internal DVD player are not on sale by itself as a seperate unit,only can buy it from the tv corporations themselves and it not cheap and have to have experience to putting it in into the tv internal tv itself.The tv internal DVD player now,could be the laser eye data reader have problems reading mp3 and mp4 files on the DVD disc,which are video files.Now tries to play more than one DVD movies dic,tries like to play like 5 to 6 original DVD movies.One disc don't play tries another DVD disc.Tries this might forcing the laser eye reader to read DVD dics again and than might fix it to read video files again.Or just buy an external DVD player hook it up to the tv and play DVD disc on to the tv video modes.DVD players external devices are really cheap these day,like can buy new one for $40.
This is common.It is caused by fingerprints, dirt, scratches on the disc.Once it freezes there is nothing you can do(sometimes ff works).Just eject it clean it with dry cloth circular motion or use wet type disc repair sold at retailers.Best advise clean all discs before you play them.Good Luck.
This is a common problem for all combo units. The high voltage of the TV section attracts large amounts of particulate dust from the air and often it collects inside the DVD unit. The best way to deal with this is to clean the lens of the DVD unit u sing a cotton swab and alcohol. The store bought "cleaners" MAY work, but that is rare. These cleaners are nothing but small brushes embedded into a disc. They attempt to brush off hte dust. This rarely works. Open up the unit (if you feel comfortabel in doing so) to access the DVD section. Remove the top cover and carefully clean the lens. That should resolve the problem.
is there a tiny little hole you can insert a paperclip into around the front of the cd. if so use a large one if you have it , insert and press hard to eject. if not then you will need help. even if you get it out the eject motor belt is likely slipped or broken.
