Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I would like to try and help you with your request. Most TVDVD combos have a small hole to the right of the DVD tray which will allow you to manually open the tray. Please follow the instructions below and let me know if it works for you.

Step 1

Straighten a paperclip out.

Step 2

Locate the tiny eject hole on the right side of the DVD tray.

Step 3

Insert the paperclip into the eject hole and push forward. The eject hole manually releases the DVD tray.

Step 4

Pull the DVD tray all the way out and pop out the DVD.

I gave you my phone number. Call me

I'm sorry but the system is telling me there was a payment failure when it tried to connect us on the phone. I cannot call directly as it needs to go through the system. You should receive a message to fix it.
