DVD door will not open

I have a Magnavox 4-head VCR/DVD combo. The VCR plays fine. The DVD door will not open with the remote or manually. I have tried to see if it is stuck shut but I have not been successful in getting it to open. It will stay in DVD mode for only about 1 minuet then it switches back to VCR. HELP!

I had something similar. Try this: press stop on the remote for the DVD; then remove the tape in the VCR, and the door should open.

The VCR has at least four "heads" two are for 2 hr and two for 6 hour (sp and slp)

It is most likely one of the heads used in the SLP mode is slightly blocked with tape debris--heads need to be manually cleaned in the right way.

you probable have a dirty video head...you can try a tape head cleaner tape/// they sometimes work.... if not you need to get to the video head and clean it with a liquid cleaning solution---
