We have a Memorex DVD player Model STS71E-R in our 2007 Winnebago Journey. The DVDs tray will not open when I push the eject button. I cannot find a manual eject hole to push either.
Any suggestions on how to get it to open or what to replace it with? It has all the wires for the speakers for the surround sound plugged into the back.
Thanks

scribe or work a piece of dental floss around the tray, pull while someone pushes the eject button.

If you remove the outer case, you should be able to push the drawer open with your finger. Is there a DVD in it? It might have gotten bounced partway outof the tray and has the drawer jammed.

The dental floss did t work. Still won't open. There is no dvd in there. This problem has been happening off and on for a few months.

Can anyone suggest a replacement DVD player? All the wires for the audio and video are plugged into the back of this player.

If drawer doesn't open, is going to be failure of one of 3 things. Drawer is binding physically, the motor is failing, or the control circuitry is failing. I doubt that you will be able to find parts for a 10+ year old discontinued unit. Might just be best to replace it.

Replace with a Blu-ray player for $40 or $50.

What about all the connections in the back? There are old style speaker connections.
I don't know how to attach a picture of it.
