My RCA vcr/dvd player did the same exact thing. I opened it up and tried it again with the cover off----it worked perfectly. Seems as thought the cover might have been pressing on the inside unit top and possibly binding the slide movement. There is a bearing assembly there that might be involved. I reassembled the cover and had a partial recurrence of the problem. Then, as I punched the open button I slapped the case sharply on top, and the side came out. You might open yours and see if there is anything physically causing some mild binding Good Luck!!

    The word "side" should have been "slide.

if disconnecting power does not help then you will have to open the player and make the DVD tray roll out.
