    I hope someone can help me. I played a DVD in my Sony player and, when
    it was over, used Open button on my remote. The screen said Open
    ----but it doesn't open. I also tried the Open button on the box
    itself....still not opening. Thanks in advance for any help you can
    give me.

    Model number ? Does it even try ( sound of motor trying to run ) ? Has the
    disc definitely stopped rotating ? Does it re-play ok and all other
    functions still work ? Have you tried a full power down reset ( unplug it
    and leave it off-power for a minimum of 10 minutes ) ?

    Pull the power cord and wait a day.

    Here's a thought.

    If the DVD was a rental (or previously viewed purchase) and had a
    sticker on it, it may have stuck to the spindle magnet and jammed the
    drawer so it cannot open. It will stay play fine in the machine, but you
    won't be able to get it out. You have to open the player up and unstick
    it, then it will eject ok.

    Been there, done that. Had to buy the guy a new dvd because my player
    tried to open the drawer anyways and scratched up the DVD that was stuck
    to the magnet. The DVD skipped a lot after that. I fixed it after the
    fact though, using the CD doctor stuff, so at least I ended up with a
    playable dvd.

    Sounds like one of those rotten "dvdceiver" models.

    Re: DVD Player Won't Release DVD THANKS ALL

    I unplugged it for a few minutes and when I powered on, it opened
    immediately.
    This was a rental Nexflix DVD from an old BBC series, so perhaps it was
    a faulty DVD. Thanks for your helpful responses.
