There are two things you can possibly do....

One, you could take the unit apart and get to the dvd by releasing the drive so you could "manually eject" the dvd. Also, if this unit is a "jack-of-all trades" machine (meaning that it's areceiver with a dvd player built-in), chances are that it'll have a small hole on the bottom croner of the drive (much like a cd or dvd drive would on a computer), where you could insert a long pin or needle and allow the tray to be released.

The second option would be to take it to a repair shop and have someone do this for you. This option would be feasible if you didn't feel comfortable enough disecting the unit by yourself.

I hope this helps

This may work, unplug unit, plug back in,(reset) while holding eject button, power it on.
OR, some players will respond to a stop, stop command, it will then let you eject.
If none of these work, it's only a couple of screws to remove the case, make sure you have disconnected the power, once open you may be able to retreive the disc, or may have to force the tray open. You will have to see what your comfort level is.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
