Check the bottom of the DVD for a lock mechnasim, most manufactures lock the mechnasim in place for transport to vendors. Also check the user manual for more info on this procedure.

Why won't the drawer open?

Try this simple answer: on a couple of DVD players I've had, it takes several seconds for the drawer to open. If you press the Open button again during that time, it will close the drawer before it even opens. So try clicking Open once, and then leaving the player alone for a 20 seconds.

Oh, I should have asked first: is the power on? On some players, the power light may be on even if the player is off. Try pressing the power button and see if more lights come on.

Is there a chance that there is a foreign object wedged in there? In my experience, 3-4 years old is prime time for experimenting with DVD players. Have anyone that age in your house? If so, the safe but tedious way to fix that is to remove the case from the DVD player. That usually allows you to see the drawer inside the machine, to see if there's anything in there. The unsafe way involves prying the drawer out; it's unsafe because there is a good chance that you'll destroy the player, and an extremely good chance that you will leave unsightly marks on the front of your player.

If the player is still under warranty "one year standard warranty" return it asp, this is probably a manufacture defect.

Panasonic dvd home theatre system SA-HT520. My 2 year old was playing with buttons on dvd player and now when i press open/close button it is saying locked and won't open, is there anything i can try...

The system has a locked / unlocked toggle sequence on the main unit by holding down stop (or Play) and then tapping the power button. Use this sequence lock or unlock the DVD / CD drawer.

My LG dv490h DVD player has its DVD drawer jammed open. When I press the button to close, it goes 20% of the way in and stops. My one year old pulled the drawer open this morning. Have taken the cover off...

The DVD tray has come off the alignment or settings which make it come OFF the mechanism. So you will need to push back the drawer back to the set position and this might be possible only after the loading mechanism is pulled out. The loading gear would have meshed with the loading drawer at mid way -due to the pull--and so it connecting only half way.
If mechanically minded you can remove the tray mechanism and reset the tray to the gear position in the DVD play/stop position.

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open

I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

Dvd drawer

If this device is less than a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I do not think many technicians will like to fix these devices due to the high cost in labor and sometimes even for newer devices is hard to find service parts.
Try unplugging the DVD recorder and plug it back in after a couple of hours, hopefully that resets the memory; sometimes it works.

This is a sure sign that the drive is faulty or the ide connection. Try a different ide connector from the other ide cable in your computer if you are able.
