Hi no im afraid their isnt if it was a pc or laptop then their is a little hole you can poke a pin in just below the drive but they never fitted them on dvd players.

the problem you are having is due to the plastic runners inside the player wearing down and this causes them to stick, now the only way you can get it open is to get a knife or strong flat bladed screwdriver and then when you press the open button get it in one of the sides and pry it open once its open you should find it may keep working for a month or so but eventually you will have the same problem.

now as for getting it repaired the problem with this is that the parts and labour would cost more than its worth so the chance of anyone fixing it for you is slim, its best if you pry it open it may be hard to do but it will come open and you might find you will have no more problems with it, some people never have another problem and it may work for as long as you need it to but most the time it will only last a month or two before it gets stuck again.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do I get a stuck DVD out of a Samsung #bd-d7500/. The tray won't open


Try switching off from wall then hold the eject button and switch on machine.do not release eject button , if tray fails to open check for a small pinhole on the front underneath tray bottom.this is an access point that you can push a paper clip in to override the mechanism.if still not opening then you will have to open case and manually remove but be aware the case screws usually have security tabs to void warranty if damaged.

The dvd player will not open


Usually there is a small hole in the front of the DVD tray which you can push a needle into to override the gear to gain access.if not power off the machine then holddown the eject button without releasing whilst switching on.this will usually override the lock.

Brand new phillips hd dvd player, door will not open to allow dvd to be loaded


First of all check that there's no "travel lock" wedge or safety catch anywhere; some players will be so equipped for transport, and you won't be able to open it until the wedge has been removed or unscrewed.

Assuming this is not the case, a defect must be contemplated. If the device is brand new, I'd bring it back to the shop and get another.

Otherwise, there should be a tiny hole in the front, near the eject button. Place an opened paperclip inside, and push against the resistance. The internal lock override will allow the tray to be manually ejected.

If afterwards the device works, the tray was just jammed - it happens. Nothing to worry about.

If it continues to not operate properly, e.g. it won't close, or once closed, it won't open again, the tray drive is probably defective. Even if it's only out of kilter, it's not worth it to try to repair it - just bring it back.

DV2140 DVD player door will not open.


Most manual overrides involved pressing and holding either the eject button or the power button on the machine itself (not the remote). Try those first.

If that doesn't work reply with the following info:
Will your system turn on/off?
Are you able to play the disk that's in the drawer?
