If you look at the cover of the DVD drive itself, you will see a white wheel. This wheel has 2 magnetic washers in it. Once you have the cover with the wheel on it removed, unclip the two halves of the wheel remove one of the magnetic washers then reassemble everything as it was before (Minus one magnetic washer) and the drive should work perfectly. I have had three of these recorders all of the developed this problem, the first 2 were in warranty so I got them replaced, the third is one of those replacements and broke after the warranty so I fixed it myself (after MF services in cork said it was "Uneconomical to repair" and they said it needed a new hard drive, when the hard drive is in perfect working order!) It looks like the two magnets are too strong and overtime something in the drive wears down and causes this malfunction!
Hope this helps, and hopefully you haven't already bought a replacement!
Unplug the dvd from power and all connections and flip it over. You will see a slot that is underneath the dvd drive and is parallell to the front of the unit. You will see a white piece in the slot. You can use a small flat blade screwdriver or toothpick or whatever to slide the piece manually to the side and that will open the door.

the reason the disc door would not come out is because there is a problem withe the mechanism that opens the door.
to fix this, 1. you unscrew the dvd player, 2. take off the cover, 3. plug the dvd and press open to see if the door would open, then you will see where it is getting stuck, 4. replace the mechanism that is controlling the disc door, and press open to see if the door will open. 5. once it is able to open up, you can screw back the cover.
try a paper clip opened and put on dvd door hole (small hole), and push slowly the paperclip inside and realease the dvd door to open, normaly is a defective dvd laser mec. and needs to be replaced. send to repair
as there is a small gears on both the sides of the door which gets a command to spin when you press the eject button as that gears are either worn out or got craked internally or are getting blocked due to any dust collected in between .if cracked or worn out replacement is necessary.but if got blocked due to dust particles just will have to open the unit by removing the screws from its top and back body and then cleaning the gears which will be easily seen internally.
Tray is out of alignment or belt drive is shot.Knock on top of cabinet with knuckles while pressing open button it will open the disc tray door 98% of time.While disc tray door is open you will see a tiny pulley to the right,this belt is probably too worn out to open the door properly.Uses 1.9 size belt.You can remove and replace with twizzers.Make sure new belt is in the tracks or tray won't move.
These are instructions to open door if DVD is jammed or the DVD recorder wont open.
Unscrew the 7 cover screws and the 2 foot screws. Remover player cover.
Pry the front control cover off from the top of the player and not the bottom with a thin screw driver paying attention not to crack or break the tabs. Just lift them enough to clear the hooks.Then lower the cover withut removing it so you can gain access to the DVD front internal bezel.
On the left side of the DVD recorder there is a notch with a lever in it. gently push on it as this is the release for the DVD door. Remove DVD from tray and close.
Re-install all covers and screws. Machine should work after this.
You probably need a new dvd belt it is 24.25 mm rectangular. or it could've slipped off. Take off cover and move white wheel with teeth very gently until dvd tray starts to open then you can gently pull on it only pull it half way out and look in center of where dvd would normally be. There you will see the bigger and smaller wheels that control dvd player. look around for the belt. Make sure power is off when you do all this.
