I put a DVD in and it played for a few minutes, then the screen went blank. I tried the open/close button and the DVD won't come out. I turned off the unit, unplugged it, pushed all the buttons -- to no avail. Is there a secret manual button to eject the DVD tray to retrieve the DVD? If so, where would I find it -- left, right or center of DVD bay? Your detailed solution would be greatly appreciated.
Whatever you do, DON'T try ejecting it manually. it can ruin the dvd mechanism. The problem is in the dvd power supply. If you have some soldering skills and are good with a soldering iron(temperature controlled is best) you can resolder all the three-legged regulators on the dvd power supply board(small board to the right front of chassis). Good success, Meder's Tv

Try pressing the HDMI button on the remote control to toggle the display output to something that your television will recognize. You can also try The progressive button and see if that helps. I am assuming you model is the XD-E500 model.
Completely power down the sound system, and unplug it from the wall socket. Wait a minute, and plug it in again. Power the system on.As soon as the power is on, press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the console. After a few seconds to a minute, the disk drawer will open.
Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.
Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
