You can force a dvd player to open. If you noticed there's a small hole in your dvd player as big as a paper clip. All you need to do is to find a paper clip and use it as a key to open ur dvd player.

First, try removing power to the DVD player, and then reconnecting the power to reset the device. Try opening the DVD tray again.
If that doesn't work, you may need to remove the outer shell/case of the DVD player (usually just a few screws on the back side of the unit) in order to gain access to the DVD drive and remove the DVD. Take caution not to touch any electronics inside the player as there may be stored voltage that can shock you. Also, you could further damage the player if you touch the electronics without being discharged.
In order to fix this device, you will need to first determine the part at fault. This could simply be a broken belt, stripped gear, dead motor, or a bad board. I would recommend contacting the Manufacturer or the place where you purchased this player to see about getting yours repaired or replaced.

BOSE LIFESTYLE 38 DVD PLAYER WON'T OPEN TO EJECT THE DVD


The DVD could be stuck inside the player or the drive may have failed.

Cant open dvd drawer


Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.

  1. Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
  2. Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
  3. Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
  4. Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
  5. Remove your disc from the drive.
  6. Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.

Have a vcr/dvd combo. The door will not open on dvd player.


A disc may be stuck inside it, preventing it from opening. You may have to remove the housing on the unit and look inside the dvd area to see if there is something stuck. It could also be broken or not getting power. Try unplugging it for a few minutes than trying it again, as well as holding down the eject button for a few seconds. Be patient after each button press, as the player is programmed to stop the disc and "park" the laser before ejecting.
Hope this helps!

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

My DVD Player does not reject a DVD. It gets stuck.


I had been closing the door at the DVD slot manually. I found that if I closed the DVD door with the close button, and then opened it with the open button, it no longer got stuck.
