Question about RCA D52W136D 52 in. TV/DVD Combo
It sounds like the open button has either been stuck in the 'pressed' position (examine it closely to see if a corner is stuck or if it still appears to return to it regular position when released) which you may be able to reseat by wiggling it while pressing it, or the switch (button) has been physically damaged so that even though the action allows it to 'pop up', the contacts inside remain in a closed state.
If the button is now damaged and not letting the TV's 'brains' know when any other button is pushed, there is not much you can do besides having it serviced and replacing parts until functionality is returned.
The one, free troubleshooting step you can try is to simply unplug the unit for 10 minutes or so.
For many electronic devices, a deep power-down will force a hard-reset of the brains inside. This can clear up erratic behavior on many devices. You dvd won't magically start working, but you may find that while your TV has lost all setup programming (channels, sources, etc), it ought to startup in TV mode at least rather than DVD mode.
I hope that helps.
