All the new models of DVD player have no eject buttons. Its a safety feature to prevent the eject door from jamming or motor failing when somebody ejects the disc while the player is in a cabinet with a glass door. Also the logic is one has to approach the player to remove or insert the disc anyway !!!
If your DVD player shows no disc, even a disc is inserted, try to clean its laser head assembly, by inserting a cleaning disc in it and play atleast three times. Take it ejected each time before you play it. If it does not helps, open the top cover of your DVD player, insert a disc, and notice if the disc spins or not. If disc spins, and not reads, the laser picup unit of your DVD player is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. If its stripe wire connected between pickup unit and main board is detachable, try repalcing the strip wire first. In some occations, bad strip wire will show this type of problem.
If disc does not spins, the sled motor [the motor that used to spin the disc at high speed], is damaged and shoud replace it. OK.
The most common reason for the player opening and closing itself is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your player, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again! Hope this helps...
Well, if its crammed in there from kids shoving stuff in there as kids will tend to do sometimes, then i am sorry to say, you most likely will need to get a new player. Cause general when something is jammed into disc slot, other components that are vital to operation have been compromised. But on the other hand. If it was working and operating fine one minute, and the next it simply just wouldn't eject. Your problem is one of the 2. Is the player making any noise as if it is trying to eject the disc but will not, and can you still at least play the disc and watch it since its already in there? If so. It sounds like you have a bad gear or a little spring that has popped that engages the gear to make the mechanism for disc ejection impossible. Or the main drive belt has dried and broke. Take it to a local tech. 2nd. If its not making any noise when eject button is pressed. The button itself might be bad. Try the remote controls eject button. If it has one, that might eject the disc. Hope this helps. And in tghe future, no paper clip tricks okay. Only damage can occure with that method. good luck,
