Question about Philips DVP3050V/37
Most likely mechanical.
There are many possible reasons for why the drive won't open.
1. the drive mechanism is stuck.
2. the motor that moves the tray is broken
3. the flat cable that transfers movement from the motor to the other gears is out of place
I'll stop there, If you are outside of warranty, you may take apart the dvd player, if you are in warranty, then just try unplugging the dvd player for 5 minutes and then try again.
If your outside of warranty and your prepared to take it apart, unplug all the cables and unscrew the screws to get the top off.
Inspect the drive, and try to help it eject by rotating the gears in the drive, they might be a bit difficult to move as they may be hidden under the tray, find a way.
Once you get the tray to release the problem might be solved, inspect the gears and the rubber transfer cable from the top of the motor to the other gears that it in place and moves freely.
Put the power back on, don't touch anything inside the player while its plugged in. Now, see if the ejecting and inserting of a disc works properly. If it does, unplug and reassemble the unit, the problem is solved.
