hi I need to know what to do…

my pioneer dvd recorder is going crazy!
I put a dvd in there and everytime it tries to load it takes forever, and then
it restarts the machine (powers it off then on again) and now I can’t take the disk out, I press the open button but it doesn’t work.
I need help please.

Unplug the machine, then plug it back in. If it doesn’t re-set and let you eject, then it’s probably a dead machine.

I have Pioneer VHS/DVD Combo have no trouble at ll, just make sure the disc is very clean and is not corrupted. As matter of fact Pioneer Recorder is one of the best in its class.
