I recently finished playing a disc and when I attempted to get the disc out, the disc stayed inside the player but the door still opened. This isn't cool because its a hired DVD.
I tried the conventional method of getting it out by sliding a knife under the disc but now the disc has slid to the back and the door won't open.

Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Verify that the disc being used is supported by the player. Clean the disc. Attempt to play a different, commercially produced disc. Remove the disc and leave the player on for a half hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player. If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.
First have look around see if the discs caused any damage to any of the parts. However you need to be a little clearer on what happens when you attempt to play a disc. For instance does it read the disc? If not perhaps some dust got into the lens area and you might need to clean it.
Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..
Two possible scenarios: First the optical pick up assembly that read the disc has malfunctioned or the eject button is faulty. Either way it is just cheaper to replace the DVD player with a standalone dvd player connected to one the tv input(s). Too expensive to repair just the dvd player if it is tv/dvd combo. The cost for labor and parts is more expensive these days to repair tvs or dvd player. For around $30 you can just replace...much more cost effective.
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.
Some recordable discs may not play correctly because of the quality of the recording, the physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device or authoring software used.
Remove the disc from the DVD player.
Turn off the DVD player.
Unplug the power cord of the DVD player from the AC outlet.
Let the DVD player remain without power for 1 minute.
Plug the power cord back into the AC outlet.
Turn on the DVD player.
Insert the disc into the DVD player.
Attempt to play the disc.
If still persists, its time for your device to get serviced.
My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?

DualDisc or Flip Disc which does not meet the Compact Disc Digital
Audio Standard. Some music labels have recently introduced the DualDisc
for pre-recorded audio and video content. The DualDisc bonds DVD
content on one side 'back-to-back' with digital audio content on the
other side. However, the digital audio side does not meet the technical
specifications specified in the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard.
For this Reason, DualDisc is not permitted to carry the CD logo.
Philips DVD and CD players and disc drives fully comply with the CD
specifications and therefore may not recognize the DualDisc. Attempting
to use DualDisc may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot
loader or drive. The DVD video content on the DVD side of the
DualDisc should play on Philips DVD players and DVD drives. However,
Philips DVD players and drives do not support DVD Audio, and will not
play any DVD Audio content present on the DVD side of a DualDisc.
Philips will further investigate DualDisc and update this notice
