My Magnavox TV/DVD Combo has a dvd stuck in the dvd holder. It's Mod. 20MF251W/37. The TV works fine but I had an instructional dvd I wanted to watch that was smaller than a normal dvd. I put it in and it automatically pulled in the dvd but I couldn't watch it, nor will it come out now.
Make: MagnavoxModel: 20MF251W/37
I tried to press the eject button and the dvd would not come out. I also pressed the stop button and the eject button at the same time and held them down for 5-10 seconds.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,On the Magnavox 20MF251W/37, have you tried:
I tried many times to fish it out with a longer phone card which is 2 times the length of a credit card. I had a canister of compressed air that I use to clean computer screens, but that didn't bring it out. I did hold the eject button down the entire time also. My tweezers were not thin enough to go into the slot.
On the bottom of the DVD stand there are several screws holding it together. Do I dare unscrew it and see what's in there?
Rather than that, try setting the face down on a table with a protective sheet or cloth. Position that the base/DVD drive will allow free access. Try ejecting in such a position or the above suggested workarounds.I would not suggested disassembling the base DVD deck without familiarity working with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM/VOM, a soldering iron/station and safe practices with electrically powered devices. Access to a Service Manual or at the very least, a schematic diagram would be a necessity.Benimur40243.8579300579
