I have an RCA TV (about 3 years old) with a built-in DVD player. My most recently played DVD will not eject...any ideas to get it out w/o damage to either the dics or the TV? Kim
unplugging TV & re-trying to eject but to no avail.
Unfortunatlely there is no magic way to make it eject without taking the unit apart, it can be dissasembled quite easily, The DVD deck can then be removed and the disk can be remove also by manually turning the load assembly by hand
OK, so it looks like I'm going to have to disassemble the old RCA. Any ideas about where & how to proceed?
Please remove ALL screws by first placing the TV face down on a blanket . There will be several large screws on the corners (need phillips screw driver) and around the perimiter (*may* have arrows depending on your version ) , then remove remaining smaller screws found on the back of the unit. Carefully (if you have a digital camera /cell cam take pictures for re assembly and to have available, as this model is known for this and you may need to repeat in the furure) lift the back off, closely watching for cables / connectors (pictures) in case they become dislodged . You can the see the DVD assembly. You *may* be able to gently PUSH the disc tray out to release the DVD. If not , you will need to further remove the entire DVD assembly and proceed to take the cover off and remove the DVD
OK, will attempt to disassemble & repair as described
