    I have the same problem. The weird thing is if there's no disc in the tray then it starts reading it before it tells me "no disc." Whereas if there's no disc in the tray it won't even attempt to read it. It just spits it back out.

    When I close the dvd tray with or without a dvd in the tray it will eject. The only way to get it to stay closed and play the dvd is to turn the player off as soon as the door shuts. Then turn the player on and the dvd will play. Can anyone help?

Does it also do this without a DVD in the drawer? Does the drawer open even when it's empty or only when it has a DVD on the tray?

I have a Samsung DVD R160 recorder. A few days ago the recorder was not on and it was making a noise like it was trying to read a disk. This went on for quite a while. I then turned it on and it would...


Try this, look for a small hole on the front of the unit.Use a pin and press in to see if it opens,ejects the disk .If no hole try seeing if you can press ,lift,pull at the door/slot while pressing the open door/eject either on the unit or with the remote control.It sounds like you may have a bad CD/DVD (copy) that the unit is trying to read/load but can't. keep trying to eject CD/DVD if this doesn't work unplug unit for 5 minutes,try open door again do press and hold open repeatedly I know it's frustrating but it just may eject.Don't use this recorder for playback of DVD buy a $30 DVD player the cheaper the better they play anything.GOOD LUCK

Tip

Force Eject


If a disc gets stuck in the recorder, there a few steps to try before the problem becomes service-related:

1. Power the unit off (so it shows the clock), then simply press the Open/Close button. The unit should power on and attempt to eject the disc.
2. If the above doesn't work - power it off again, then press and hold the STOP and CH UP button on the recorder itself together and hold them down until the unit powers up. This is called a force eject. If this doesn't work (usually if it's not going to work the recorder will simply come on momentarily then loop back into "bye" and go back to the clock), there is one last method to try.
3. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Press and hold the same buttons as above as you plug it in. After it performs the self-check "ooooo" across the screen it should do the force eject. If not, the unit requires service to be repaired and possibly the drive replaced.

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD


Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

Go Video DVD will not eject


this suggestion made on this forum worked great for me.
I don't care if it does sound silly.. smack the unit smartly over the eject tray when you press the eject button.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject


Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!

DVD RW stucked - stall the whole system.


Hi, I found this site today cos I had a similar problem. To cut a long story short I found a slot on the bottom of the machine, below the disc tray, that has a white lever in it. After removing the power source I moved the lever to the side and the tray opened manually so I could remove the disc. It seems It was a duff DVDR as other discs now work fine. Good luck !

Yes, I'm having the exact same problem -- I can't eject the dvd that's in the player right now either manually or remotely. It plays fine.
