DVD Tray won't open

All of a sudden my dvd tray won't open and I have a disk in it as we speak and the player won't respond to the remote or manually trying to get it to open or play. The blue light comes on but no reading in the screen where it use to come on with "Power on" then read the disk and when you shut it off it first read "power off". Once the blue light is on for a bit then it goes into stand by mode. Will not respond to anything I do and this just all of a sudden happened out of no where. How can I
1. get the disk out?
2. get it to respond again
3. Is there such a thing as a 're set"?

    Yes, it's 2008 now and the player turns on. That's it. Nothing works. I'm trying to find a reset button or set of procedures to reset it. Unless I see some reset button inside the box. Meanwhile, I'm cruising the net for answers.

    Very similar problem. I only see the standby light. Nothing else comes on and there's DVD loaded that I'd like to at least get out of it.

The quickest way I've found is to just remove the upper casing, unscrew the disk holder and take the disk out that way. The disk holder will look like the silver part in this picture http://www.vintagecomputing.com/wp-content/images/nesdvd/nesdvd_03_large.jpg although your could be black or other color.

    Sony RDR-GX360 won't respond to any buttons on unit or remote. Only function that works is power button. Disk tray won't even open.


    Try unplug,replug the unit back like about an hour later for the unit for resetting itself back to factory setting.If getting the same result the unit might have a shorted motor drive for the disc tray.Or shorted control panel on the unit itself.Well,this thing a basic DVD player only wright?If u can tries take it aparts and check out tries to repair it ur self that great.If u tries the shops,not worth it.Trash it.These basic DVD player only are very cheap now.U can get one brand new like $40 dollars.

    DVD tray will not open


    When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

    Unplug power cord.
    Plug back power.
    Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
    If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
