    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue:


    • Make sure to turn on your Blu-ray Disc™ player to open the disc tray. If it is off, the OPEN/CLOSE button won't function.
    • The disc tray won't open if a disc is loading. This is a normal operation.

    1. Make sure the disc tray isn't locked. If it is, unlock the disc tray.
    2. Perform a power reset.
      1. Press and hold the POWER button for ten seconds until the Blu-ray Disc player turns off.
      2. After the Blu-ray Disc player turns off, press the POWER button again to turn it back on.
      3. Press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the front of the Blu-ray Disc player to open the disc tray.
    3. If the disc tray still won't open and a disc is stuck inside, follow these steps to force the disc tray to eject.
      1. Turn off the Blu-ray Disc player.
      2. Turn the Blu-ray Disc player back on.
      3. Immediately after POWER ON appears on display, press the STOP button on the front of the player.
        • Only use the STOP button on the front of the Blu-ray Disc player. The remote control won't work for this operation.
        • The disc tray should eject, and the Blu-ray Disc player will turn off. If it doesn't eject, repeat the steps above.
        • It may be necessary to press the STOP button in the third step two or three times.
