If it is getting old, I read somewhere the magnet thing inside gets too strong and doesnt release ( I KNOW THIS SOUNDS DUMB BUT IT WAS SOMEWHERE IN MY INTERNET SEARCHES) I did what they said and tapped the top as I pushed the open button and WOW it worked. Don't hit too hard and even if it opens, start shopping for a new recorder.

Our Samsung DVD-H1080 DVD Player wont open, we've had it for a while, but the place where it opens is stuck, help??

Are you using the remote or touch button on case to eject tray?
Sometimes the top lid gets warped and prevents the tray from opening. Press eject and lift the front part of the lid at the same time.

The tray on the recorder will not open

You either have a belt or gear slipping, a bad motor, or a disk that is stuck. You can take the cover off and make sure a disc isn't jamed and inspect that the motor is trying to turn. I know that most recorders won't let you open the tray when it is recording. It's a long shot, but you can also try unplugging the power chord and plug back in and see if that will reset it. Does try to open at all? does it make a sound like it's going to open?

DVD tray stuck in the closed position

Is it jammed?
Still has a CD/DVD still in it?
Is so try cycling the power to see if it will kick it out.

Otherwise it's most likely a hardware problem like a bad tray motor, broken gear, or perhaps a bad/stuck switch on the tray assembly.

If it's still under warranty, call the manufacture technical or customer support for a possible replacement.

Dvd drawer keeps opening up on its own and will not stay shut?

There is a switch located at the front of the player right under the DVD tray. This switch tells the player that the door is completely closed. If this switch does not operate, then the Ilo will re-open the DVD tray thinking that something is jammed. Might want to try replacing that switch

E1 (rear) error. DVD tray will not open.

there might be a possibility that as soon as the tray closed the dvd shifted inside the machine. the dvd is stuck yes which means that the tray wont open because the dvd is blocking the gear turning. if so you are going to have to take it to your Dealership to open up the player and remove the disk. you can try it yourself but it's not recommended. tray gears will have to be tested to see if the tray will open once the disk is out though
