The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

The DRC8052N / DRC8052NB / DRC8052NC DVD recorder (sorry cab209, not a PC) has had a LOT of problems. So many that RCA doesn't even list it on their site! There was a firmware upgrade that supposedly fixed this, but I'm having trouble finding it on the web.
As to how to remove DVD:
1) Try unplugging the machine and leaving it unplugged for 10 to 15 minutes. then (without plugging it back in) press the power button repeatedly. (I know it sounds goofy but it came from customer support. Theory: to drain all power) Plug it back in and try to eject.
2) Another owner suggested holding down the HDMI button on the remote. The "hello" mesage is an initialization/power-on routine, so my guess would be it was powered off with the disc in it?
3) Unplug it. Remove the cover (two silver screws on each side and three black screws on the back). Slide the cover off (to the rear). Take the four small screws out of the top of the drive (marked LOADER on mine. Lift out the DVD. Reassemble.
While you have it apart..... You might also look at the circuit board next to the drive in the center of the unit. It has a bunch of capacitors (black or blue, cylindrical, w/ X or Y stamped in the end). If any of these are no longer flat on the X or Y end or have yellow 'goo' on or around them, they have failed and are the source of your problem. They can be replaced, but it may be more cost effective to replace the entire unit.

well it sounds like it is possible that the drive may have taken a ****. you can try to stick a safety pin in the tiny hole in the front to force eject. But usually when a drive stops opening its because its failed. but double check your power cable and your ide or sata cables on the back of the rom inside the case.
also you can use any cd/dvd rom as long as it matches the cable in the back, either ide or sata
you can find them fairly cheap @
