DVD-R disc stuck in machine; powers on/off repeatedly
I have a DVD stuck in my 3455H, and after unplugging and leaving
unplugged for an hour and then attempting to repower, it just powers
down after a while and cycles back up again. Any way to manually remove
the disc, which I'm assuming is what's causing the freeze up and
recycling? Thanks in advance.

The most likely reason the unit got 'stuck during finalisation' is probably because there was insufficent space left on the disc for it to write the respective lead-out/menu data (or perhaps there was a bad disc sector) - disc full? Because you unplugged the unit from power point before it had finished, the disc is possibly corrupted now. Throw that disc out.
The manual clearly warns: Do not disconnect the AC power supply cord while finalising. This can render the disc unusable.
In other words, you have lost that particular recording and you are wasting your time with that disc.
There is nothing in the manual to suggest the length of time required for DVD-R recovery - there is a recovery process for the whole unit (such as after a power cut while recording a timer program for example) but not for discs. I may be wrong here...
However, the upshot is you have lost a disc, not a recorder. Another drink coaster for your living room.
your gonna have to open the machine up the there is a whits tab that lifts the disc up to spin you will have to use your fingers to slde it of that make sure its unplugged and then the white thing will realese
The Disc Tray Will Not Open And/Or There Is A Disc Stuck In The Player.Some DVD Players manufactured prior to 2003 have a Dealer Lock or Child Lock function. This will prevent the panel buttons from operating.
This function is activated by pressing the STOP button on the front panel and the POWER button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds in the power on state. Repeating this sequence releases the dealer lock. When the dealer lock in activated, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the display.
If this does not resolve your problem there may be an error with in the player. To resolve this try the following these steps:
Unplug the DVD player from the electrical outlet and leave it unplugged for thirty seconds.
Plug the DVD player back in to the electrical outlet, but do not turn the DVD player on.
With the DVD player off, press the [Open/Close] button on the front of the DVD player. The home theater should power on when you press the [Open/Close] button and eject the tray.
The electronic procedure: Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On
the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons
at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the
wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.
