Make sure you look at the Samsung P241 Troubleshooting Guide first to see if you can solve your problem without taking the DVD player apart.

If the disc tray does not come out when you press the “Eject Disc” button, listen for the sound of the motor. If it sounds like a motor is trying to open the drive but something is preventing it, the disc drive is probably jammed and you can refer to this guide to open it up and remove the jam.

If the disc drive does not open when the machine is ON and it makes no noise whatsoever, then the electronics on motherboard or in the disc drive are probably damaged. In order to fix this problem, you will have to replace the disc drive and/or motherboard. Refer to the laser repair guide to remove the disc drive, and refer to the main board repair guide to replace the motherboard.
