Panasonic DVD player telling me "tray init"



What does this mean and how do I fix it??? I attempted taking the machine apart…I successfully got the dvd out, but the tray will not open by itself and the machine does not work. All it tells me is to “please wait”! help!!!


I am also struggling with the same issue - I think, my daughter placed several DVDs at a time, now its stuck…model number is SC-HT700. If you turn the power on, it says Tray Init…
