Disconnect the Power Cord. Open the Case and go to the DVD unit. On the right side of the unit you will see an indentation which is the mechanical portion of the DVD Unit.
Push the indentatation in, it is the eject switch. The DVD unit door opens remove the DVD stuck in the unit.
Put cover back on plug the unit in, insert a workable DVD and all should be OK.
The problem was the unit could not read a Defective DVD which I made and the unit was locked in to reading the DVD.
I hope this helps

There are 2 things you can do as an end user.
1. Clean the DVD's or CD's that you are using. A fingerprint or any other debris or marks on a disc can cause playback problems. Most retailers that sell DVD and CD players also sell disc cleaning kits.
I use another method that works very good, as good or better than the cleaning kits. Use a small amount of windex on the data side of the DVD or CD and then a soft cloth like a bath towel or terry cloth to clean it. It really is important to keep your disc's as clean and scratch free as possible. If that does not help you can move on to the next step.
2. Clean the lens of the laser pick up. You can do that with a cleaning disc that is sold at most all stores that sell DVD players. It is a disc that you put into the player just like any other disc except that it had some very fine brushes on it that cleans off the lens. Let it run for around 20 to 30 seconds.
If neither of those things help, you have a problem that can not be fixed without some good electronic skills.
Something else you may want to keep in mind if you are thinking about taking it to a service center for repair.
Unless you paid more than $200 for it, it may not be worth fixing.
I have been repairing electronics (car and home audio systems) for over 17 years and repairs on these type of units normally run anywhere from $90 to $175 (depending on the problem).
You will also only get a 30 to 60 day warranty on the repair from most repair centers, as opposed to the warranty of a new piece of equipment which is normally 90 days or 1 year.
I hope this helps you fix your DVD recorder or at least make an informed decision. If you need any more help feel free to ask and a good rating would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
