    I tried this and it worked! Doesn't fix the problem of the eject button not working but at least I could get the DVD out. Thanks!

    I just put a comment but will reiterate here. I tried this and it worked! It doesn't solve my problem of the eject button not working but I was able to get the DVD out which is very good. Thanks! Most likely will have to take system in for repair.

Assumptions:

  • You are trying to do this on a front loading "slot" type DVD player
  • The DVD player does not have a small "pinhole" on the front which would normally be used for manually ejecting discs.
  • The DVD player is a type that will eject discs if it can not read them for any reason.

I was able to get my DVD out by:

  1. Shut off the DVD player
  2. Carefully slide a piece of thick paper (postcard thickness) as far into the DVD slot as you can. It will probably go in only a couple inches max.
  3. Turn on the DVD player
  4. Wait about 20 - 30 seconds. The DVD player should have trouble reading the disc because it is not spinning, thus it will report an error and eject the disc.
  5. If this doesn't work, odds are you don't have the paper in far enough so you are not preventing it from spinning.
There is no guarantee that this process won't harm your DVD player and/or disc so attempt at your own risk. I can tell you that I've done this several times without damage to either.

Hello,

you did not state the make and model of the player.

Yes, the button can be removed to check if button is stuck but you will have to disassemble the unit in order to gain access to the eject button.

Also, does the player uses a remote? If it does, I would suggest you use the remote to eject the player, if it ejects, then there is every tendency that stuck button is the reason the eject button is not working.

Let me know the out come.

Bye for now.

How to get a dvd tray unstuck


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

My dvd player is stuck on one dvd and wont let me eject, change disc, or even stop the current dvd. display reads "locked" whenever i press any buttons. can only turn on and off the device.


Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution...
* 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and
then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug
the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out..
* 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing.
* 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in
place while the DVD player reads the disk.
* 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD
ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied.
* 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly..
* 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put
another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

I have 2006 honda odyssey. i cannot use dvd system, because i cannot eject dvd. how can i eject dvd?


To eject the dvd from the dvd player you have to push the eject button on the dvd player, if the dvd is stuck inside the dvd player you have to get it checked by a service technician

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.


ht3007_1.gifFigure 1 Manual eject button

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

Stuck dvd tray


There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

Disc Eject won't work after improperly inserting disc and since removing it.


I have an DZ-MV780 with the same problem. I found that the cover plate around the flash hot shoe only has a single screw. If you remove it and pull up the cover you gain access to the gear and lock mechanism. Hit eject and if necessary press on the white gears you see in front of the zoom switch. It should then cause the door mechanism to unlock and open.
