Did as you requested, although this had been done previously. As a reminder, my email stated that I had cycled the TV several times, and tried using both the remote and manual power buttons. This unit has no pinhole to use a paperclip to manually eject the disc. It seems that the DVD side does not power up, although the VCR side works just fine.
Hi! Unfortunately, the DVD/input button on the remote has no effect, which has been the root of the problem. There is no manual way on this TV to manually switch from TV to VCR to DVD. There is only one physical power button on the set. The remote operates all the other functions perfectly, but there is no way to get into DVD mode (and thus eject the DVD).
Taking the TV apart is something I do not feel skilled enough to do, so that option will not work for me.
I was trying to avoid taking my set to a local tech, hoping that there would be a trick/tip that could offer at least short-term solution. However, the upshot seems to be to either replace the remote (is that really the problem?) or a tech. You had me do several things that I had already done, as mentioned in my initial email.
The upshot, it seems, as there is no workaround, is that I will be taking my set (along with the remote) to a local shop tomorrow.
If you've followed the thread so far, it seems that there is no user-friendly way of ejecting my disc when the built-in DVD player has decided to no longer work. I tried reprogramming a universal remote, and while it will operate the TV, still no go on the DVD, so it seems that my only option is for a local tech to look at it. Do you have any other suggestions?
Sometimes, finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly.

Sounds like you may have enabled the Tray Lock by accident or there is a Firmware Issue. If it is firmware or Tray Lock related, the procedure below will fix it:
