Unable to open DVD slot

I am unable to open the DVD slot to insert a DVD. I have tried disconnecting the power and re-trying. I have replaced the battery in the remote control. The TV screen tells me that there is no disc in the unit. Any ideas as to how I can open it.

    If you look on the bottom of the DVR you will see a note that says to insert a pin and push to the left. the slot is above the note and if you use a flashlight you will see a while rod. I used a popsicle stick and the tray opened.

Look at the bottom of the unit. There's a slot where you can insert a small screwdriver and move the lever sideways to eject the disk.

Incorrect cartridges message on printer screen c4183. help me


Complete the following steps in the order presented until you resolve the issue. Step one: Remove and inspect the cartridge
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Press the Power button if it is not lit.
  2. Open the printer cover, and then wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
  3. Press down gently on the top of the cartridge to release it.
  1. Figure 2: Removing the tri-color cartridgec00484998.gif
  2. Slide the cartridge out and inspect it.
    CAUTION: Do not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles. Figure 3: Electrical contacts and nozzlesc00211537.gif 1 - Copper electrical contacts 2 - Nozzles
    • Check the electrical contacts for debris.
    • Make sure all the clear protective tape has been removed from the nozzle and electrical contact area. Figure 4: Removing the clear protective tapec00211538.gif
  3. Reinstall the cartridge in the product and try again to print.
If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, go to the next step. Step two: Make sure the cartridge is compatible Which cartridges you use depends on your country or region. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, click this link, HP SureSupply . If your language or country does not display next to the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) select your language and location.
  1. If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the printer.
    • Place cartridges marked with a triangle in the left carriage slot.
    • Place cartridges marked with a square or pentagon in the right carriage slot.
    Figure 5: Print cartridges installed correctlyc01091334.jpg Figure 6: Direction to insert the print cartridgesc01091335.jpg
  2. After verifying that your cartridge is compatible, reinstall the cartridge in the product and try again to print.
If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, go to the next step. Step three: Clean the cartridge contacts
  1. Open the printer lid and wait until the carriage stops moving, and then unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    NOTE: If you are removing a tri-color, photo, or gray photo print cartridge, try to clean the contacts quickly enough that the cartridge is not outside of the printer for more than 30 minutes. The ink can dry and clog the nozzles if the cartridge is outside of the printer for too long.
  3. Dip a clean cotton swab in distilled water, and then squeeze it to remove most of the moisture.
  4. Clean the print cartridge contacts. Do not touch the nozzles. Figure 7: Cartridge electrical contactsc00832021.gif
  5. Clean the contacts inside the carriage, inside the printer. c00246272.gif
  6. Either let the cartridge sit for ten minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
  7. Reinstall the cartridge, plug in the power cord, close the printer cover, and then try again to print.
If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, go to the next step. Step four: Reset the printer
  1. Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the printer, but leave the printer turned on.
  2. Open the cover of the printer and remove the print cartridges.
  3. Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer and wait for one minute.
  5. Reconnect the power cord. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
  6. Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
  7. Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
  8. Reconnect the USB cable, and try again to print.
If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, go to the next step. Step five: Replace the cartridge If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, replace the cartridge. If you do not have a replacement print cartridge, go to the next step. Step six: Print in backup mode If you do not have a replacement print cartridge, you can still print in ink backup mode until the issue is resolved. Remove the problem cartridge and print with the remaining cartridge.
  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, the printouts will be in grayscale.
  • If after you have completed these steps you are still unable to resolve the issue, service the product.
  • If you remove the black or photo cartridge, the printer will print more slowly and the colors in the printouts may differ.

I am unable to open the dvd tray after inserting a dvd which plays ok.i want to be able to open and close the dvd tray as normal.


There may be a problem with the dvd you are using. If you look at the front of the dvd player there should be a very small hole. Take a paper clip and insert into this hole which should open the dvd drawer.

Now try another dvd to the if the player functions correctly. If not it likely means that there is a problem with your dvd player.

DVD stuck in DVR5000


Some CD/DVD units have a manual opening mechanism, it looks like a small hole on the front of the unit, try using a needle or a metal rod that fits by inserting it into the hole and pushing it should open the unit in case it got stuck somehow. If afterwards it continues to work then all's good else you'll have to bring it to a workshop.
