Toshiba SD-5000 DVD Player - disc tray stuck

Played a dvd/movie just fine tonight - went to take the movie out but the tray will not open.
Have tried the "stop and eject" idea posted elsewhere online...nothing!
My kids need this fixed! (who am I kidding? I need it fixed!)
Thanks in advance!

    I have tried both "open" buttons - on the unit and on the remote - that was the first thing I tried.

You can try unplugging, resting and plugging the unit back in.
If it doesn't work, I wouldn't bother with trying to fix it.
It is now listed as an under $50.00 DVD player (they can can be found for as little as $39), so it is hardly worth investing any money into.
To get the movie disk out that is in it, yes, there should be a little pinhole in the front, that you can take a paperclip, and push it in to eject it. Otherwise, you can "gently" pry it open.
At that point I would suggest looking for a new player.

Usually there is a small pin hole on the front of the dvd player to eject it. If you can't find one, the next easiest option is to unplug it and plug it back in and then trying to eject it. If that doesn't work, then the motor to eject it or some other wire may have broken or become loose. You will need to unplug the unit and then start taking off the outer panel to get to the motor and dvd. It is pretty basic, phillips screws on the outside and basically everywhere holding everything together. Check the operation of the motor and whether a belt came off track or if a gear is out of alignment. If everything looks fine, check for power on the motor wires with a meter while trying to eject the disc. If there is power, replace the motor with a new one from an electronics store such as Radio Shack. If there is no power, trace the wires back until you find the problem basically. I'd bet it is the motor though. let me know if you have any questions or need any more help.

my best to you

Try first turning off the player and turn it back on and eject it using the eject button on the unit and also try to eject it using the remote.. IF still wont eject this can be a mechanical function on the ejecting part of the unit that you may need to open the unit and check for that..

Hope that helps.........

    If that's the case if you have knowledge in opening this kind of device to check for some mechanical problem on the eject part it will be easy for you to fix it but if not take it to a repair center near you and let them fix the mechanical problem...

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..

Please leave comment.

DVD disappeared in DVD Player after viewing movie


Get the dummy cd disc, put a blue tac on it. Insert it. Then after few seconds, eject it. Your dvd disc should stick with it when they came out. It worked for me and hope it will work for you.

DVD Tray will not open


I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!

Won't open


Try this trick. it worked for me. Using a credit card insert it into the Tray opening to remove the front cover of the CD loader. then using 2 fingers push the tray inwards while pressing the eject button. Do this 3 to 5 times. If this does not fix your problem. Send it for repairs.

System constantly re-booting


While this post is very late to answer this question, here is where I found a solution with the DVD still inside. When I used this solution, the whole system reset and worked.

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/archive/index.php/t-277275.html

"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.

I finally got it to boot:

Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally at the next try.

I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject button continuously.

I hope this helps!"
