I've had this tv/dvd combo for 4 years with no problems. I just pulled out a dvd and in my rush, pulled on the door, helping it open faster, as it was opening. Now it won't close all the way, there is about an inch of the tray that is sticking out.

Re: Dvd tray will not close
Sorry to say, but you pulled the bugger out of alighnment, and the only way to fix it would be to get a manual and see how it goes together, unless your very mechanicly inclinded and can figure out the loading mechanism. It may be a cam driven loading tray or a gear or belt driven. Also there are limit switchs that a part of the drawer hits to tell the unit when it reaches the fully open postion as well as the fully closed potion. good Luck

then there is a problem with your cd case ......................................................... ON THE BACK OF DVD THERE IS A WIRE OR SUM PIECE PULLED IT BY USING SOM CLIP THEN THE DVD'S DOOR OPEN EASILY..........
The first DVD you inserted may have slipped into the cabin of TV. It will be there inside, but to take it our you have to open your TV and take the loading mechanism out of it. It is a semi-skilled job, if you have confidence, you can do it yourself. When taking out the mechanism, make sure not
to damage any connection wires from DVD player to main board of the TV. OK.
Straighten a paperclip. On the face of
most disk players there is a small hole. Push the paper clip into
the hole, and the disk tray should release. Pull the tray out to
it's full extension. Power being on or off is immaterial. Hope this
There should be a little hole on the DVD tray bezel or possibly around the edge. If you put the paper clip into the hole and poke around, it will partially release the tray and you should be able to gently pull the tray open.
try cleaning the player. with a dvd clean disk..for about $5.00 to $7.00.... and wipe down the player.
sometimes dust and trash gets in the way and will not close properly and you end up closing an closing until the trash get out of the way... cleaning it will help..
I had this problem and it turned out to be the gears on the door drive. There are two gears, one that engages the rack on the tray and one that has a slot that drives the clamping action to hold the DVD. These two gears were misaligned by one tooth. This prevented the gear with the slot from turning freely after the door was closed.
To fix it I had to take out the tray assembly, disasemble it, and reassemble it with the gears properly aligned. You need to remove the top and back of the case. Then take out two screws at the rear of the tray assembly and three screws on the circuit board attached to the tray assembly. Unplug the connections to that board. Slide out the tray assembly. Now you can pop the top off of the tray assembly by pulling out two tabs and sliding the top toward the rear. Now you can get to the gears to adjust them. The slotted gear should be able to turn freely for about 1/4 turn when the tray is closed. Make sure the pin on the clamping part is in the slot when you reassemble it.
