DVD Eject tray stuck

The disk tray won't open. There is no disk stuck in there. When I press the eject button, the words "load disk" light up and I can hear the tray trying to eject, but it never does. Then it will say "no disk" after a few seconds and not do anything else. THe DVD eject tray is stuck on my system as well. I tried putting in a VHS and then hitting open and that didn't work. And I can't seem to find a system reset button. Any help is very welcome! thanks!

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

If press eject button,it's showing LOCKED.what can i do?


You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

321 stuck disc


Take cover off. Locate tray which houses the DVD. You must locate the planet gear (teeth 360 degrees) and turn that manually. It may resist if something is stuck (kid object). Find the UFO first and get it out of there. Then try to plug unit in and eject before prying or applying pressure to the gearing to drive the tray out. You may skip some teeth on the gear and the from that point on the DVD won't load or eject correctly anymore. There is a sensitive timing sequence there so if you skip a tooth, it will need to go the repair center. Take your time and examine everything and try to remove the UFO. Turn it upside down and shake, etc. Then continue to use the eject button. This is all you can do at home. If that fails find a repair center.

DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside


My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

DVD stuck inside sony dav-sc5. Pressed the eject button and nothing happened. Did the usual turn it off and on again and it started to read the disk but then nothing happened. Tried to eject it and nothing...


Have you tried to unplug the unit for 1 or 2 minutes to see if it can reset the computer chip inside of the DVD player?
I have had great sucess with this trick.

I hope that this helps you out of this situation.

Disc tray


Something is causing the disc to get stuck inside the DVD player. Open it and inspect. If something is broken, take it to a repair center.

My dvd/cd try does not open when i press the eject button say "locked"


That means your trays are on Child Lock (this is a safety feature to prevent any accidental opening or closing of disc trays by small children when listening to your favorite tracks.)
To solve this, simply switch off your radio to Standby and hold the power button...whilst holding the power button, press open on the tray that is locked....the system will display UNLOCKED on the display of your hi-fi.

That should be it. To lock the tray....repeat the same process on the particular tray u want locked.
