I own a Toshiba MD13P3 TV/DVD combo. My daughter stuck a dvd and forced the tray in and now it does not work. I opened the unit and got to the DVD unit and removed the DVD. Now the DVD does not open or close- When I press the eject button I see the mechanisms working but nothing happens- Is there a website or a step by step webpage where I can see how this device works? All I want is to play movies on this thing~!!! HELP@!!

Try unpluging the TV... then plug it in while pressing the eject button! If you have a DVD laser lens cleaning disc at home, use it then try again. It might also be a dirty or scratched disc that's not being read by the laser. Try another disc. Good luck!
If you can find a very small hole in the face of the DVD tray, then you may straighten out a paper clip or something similar that will fit in the hole and gently press it in to activate the manual eject for the tray.
In many cases, the drive motor that moves the disc tray in or out becomes inoperable. It may get a signal to activate, but it is stuck in position and will not function. Yes, you can manually force the tray to open, but noting you can do will help make the tray go in/out using a button or remote.
The entire unit needs to replaced, unfortunately.
I have the exact problem. We have three TV/DVD combos from Toshiba, and within the last two weeks all three of them started have the same problem - all at different times. At first I thought one had a power surge problem, so I took it to the TV repair shop (being diagnosed now), then a few days later the second one did the same thing. And now, three days later, the third one (newer model Toshiba) started doing the same thing.
Open up the unit find the load and unload motor on the DVD carriage and turn it manually and this should eject the tray. You may even have to unscrew the carriage to get to the bottom of it to access the load and unload motor.
