I cannot retrieve a DVD from LG 26LG40 ...the DVD function on the remote won't work. The DVD is stuck in the TV...I cannot see it, but I know it is there!
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance... Initially, the prescribed approach is to open the unit, remove the drive/deck ass'y, and manually extract the erring disc.Offhand, possible workarounds depending on the version:
I pressed the eject button for 5 seconds as stated in the manual and got the disc out, but NOW IT WILL NOT ACCEPT A DISC? What now?
Then it would be an internal mechanical issue with the DVD deck. Unfortunately, no quick/easy fix and neither is there a workaround. The unit would have to be opened up for visual inspection, confirm fault and effect repairs.As above posted, the prescribed approach is to open the LG and pull out the DVD deck.Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? Do you have access to, familiar with and comfortable in the use of a multimeter and perhaps even a soldering iron/hot-air station? Equally important, could you make use of the repair / Service Manual?
