My mischevious 2 year old stuck 2 disks in one slot, we fear, and now we can't get the whole thing to work. After we power off and back on again, we get a INIT error message and then get stuck on WAIT. Our guess is that it can't get beyond the dvd issue.
Any thoughts? We're broke and want to fix it ourselves, if we can!
Remove the top by removing the screws and then you can remove the stuck/jammed discs. For the Panasonic SC-PT750 there are 7 screws, three small silver ones on the back, then 4 black ones, two on each side, all philips head. Once you have that off, gently pry it off starting from the back, the cover is actually hinged into the front plastic piece of the player.

Re: 2 disks stuck in one slot of DVD player
Looks like it will have to come apart.
Can you see how?
Usually the top/side casing is simply 5/6 screws
2 each side and 1/2 at the back then slide back away from the from panel.
Technical help at Panasonic may be helpful.

The power button is at the top of the phone. At the bottom there's a little slot. Shove you finger nail in there (or something) and slide sideways to ease the plastic apart towards one corner of the phone. Work around until the whole plastic back of the phone just pops off.
Could be tricky depending on how deep it went in and if it dropped down when it did. Have you tried unplugging all the leads, pointing the disk slot down and tapping it on the back or the sides? Maybe get a torch and look in the slot to see if you can see part of the card. Try to grab it with some long thin tweezers but make sure it's unplugged from power first of course.
When the Wii takes in a disk two metal fingers rise up to block the opening. These probably got bent when your two year old tried inserting the second disk. If they are bent they will rub the edge of the disk and prevent it from rotating. If a smaller game cube disk will work then bent fingers is the most likely problem. They can be bent back out.
Remove the disc drive from the console. Remove the cover very carefull. Take the top part off (remove the 5 screws) and open the disc drive like a book.
Carefull remove the guide mechanism (the front part -1 screw).
The clicking noise is caused by the fact that the left side mechanism that raises and loweres the deck when the disk is inserted or ejected is stuck. Carefull push back the piece of plastic with teeth located on the left side of the deck (as you are looking at the disk drive the oposite side with the lens driving motor) until it clears complete the plastic round gear that drives that part.
mount back the guide mechanism, and the top part.
Attached the ribbon cables to the unit , power the console and keep the eject button pushed for about 10-15 seconds.
That will reset all the gears and stuff.
Worked for me when I experienced that issue.
I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)
If you can see the SD card, Get a toothpick and wrap Tape onto it then reverse the tape so that you have sticky on outside. See it you gcan retract it that way. You risk damaging the Disc eject system if you try to force the disc to eject by pressing the eject button more than 10 seconds. Once you get the SD card out you can do the 10 second eject button thing.
