I have a model DV1140 on my 4 year old son’s room since 2004 and I’ve seen this kind of issue before. This is mostly caused by trying to eject the DVD without pressing “stop” twice before ejecting it. But since you are already in trouble you may try this: First, let the player start to play the movie (you must let it play all the sneak previews first). Second, press “stop” twice (make sure the counter reads 0:00:00). Third, press “eject”. It should be working fine by now. If not, then you’ll probably experiencing the same issue I had today. My wife came to me complaining about the dvd player, she told me that she couldn’t get the player to eject the disc. “Women” I thought (sorry for that I didn’t mean it), but when I was trying my “magic” I heard an unusual winding noise coming out from the DVD tray. Since I couldn’t get the DVD to eject I decided to open up the player and check it for any loose or broken parts, nothing fancy anyone can do this. (If you don’t feel comfortable with this, just don’t do it and take the unit to a repair shop). Ok, now for the ones who stayed with me. Most important; first, unplug the unit from the AC outlet and disconnect it from all sources (TV, Cable, Sat, etc.). Remove a few Philips screws located at both sides and on the back panel and then remove the top lid, you should be able to see your disc by now. There should be another small black plastic “lid” on top of your DVD tray (this ensures the disc stays in place and centered), remove this lid by unscrewing another two Philips screws located on both sides of this “lid”. By now you should be able to remove your disc. After removing the disc you may try to plug the unit back to an outlet and turn it back on to look for any unusual sounds (like the one I heard) to identify any issues, (CAUTION: avoid any exposure to the laser beam). If you can’t find anything wrong yet then proceed to remove the front panel (it has a few clips all around just be careful not to break any of them). Now, check inside the DVD mechanism (a flashlight may be helpful here) when you look inside search for two small “pulleys” (mostly white)there should be a black rubber belt running around them if there is no belt around you’d just found half of the problem. If you are in luck you may find the little rubber belt (about an inch on diameter) or what is left of it inside the DVD tray. As soon as you find it you will have the other half of the problem. You see, when you press the eject button it activates a motor that spins the two “pulleys” I mentioned before with the help of the little belt you’d just found. This makes the DVD tray to move in or out of the player.
I hope this will be helpful for anyone out there with the same problem. (Remember, this work for my player (DV1140), I’m not totally sure that it’ll work for all models). As for me? Well, now I have to search for the belt p/n and were can I get two of them (one for spare). If anyone found it first you can contact me at:

This dvd-514 does not play pal/europian dvd

You have to use the remote control and hit the "N/P" button on the bottom row, last one on the left. That should fix your problem.

Cannot open the dvd door on the ch-dvd300 it is turned on but cannot open. the remote battery is not working for the dvd.

Remove the cover, remove the disc if one is present, manually push the door open if there was a disc in there or not. Place cover back on, let me know if that doesn't work.

Oh, please rate this solution.

The Disc Tray Will Not Open And/Or There Is A Disc Stuck In The Player. spacer.gif Some DVD Players manufactured prior to 2003 have a Dealer Lock or Child Lock function. This will prevent the panel buttons from operating.

This function is activated by pressing the STOP button on the front panel
and the POWER button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds in the power on state. Repeating this sequence releases the dealer lock. When the dealer lock in activated, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the display.

If this does not resolve your problem there may be an error with in the player. To resolve this try the following these steps:
  1. Unplug the DVD player from the electrical outlet and leave it unplugged for thirty seconds.
  2. Plug the DVD player back in to the electrical outlet, but do not turn the DVD player on.
  3. With the DVD player off, press the [Open/Close] button on the front of the DVD player. The home theater should power on when you press the [Open/Close] button and eject the tray.
The second option worked for me...
