Tray will not open

I have an LVW-2005 and an LVW-2006 and the tray has quit opening on both. Is there anything I can do to make the tray open? Drawer on LVW-5005 will not open. Worked fine when I stopped using it a couple of months ago.  Just now plugged it in and the drawer will not open. Seems the player still works.  It is not that old and has not been used extensively.  Seems this is a flaw in the product.  Any advise would be appreciated.

Hi had the same problem, unscrew the top off from panel and just like a computer burner there is a button on the front of the burner on the inside independent of the eject button, that is away from the actual eject button. my friend drilled a small hole on the front near the burner from the outside and i stick an allen key through they hole and the tray will come open, not sure why the eject buttons are dodgy, but this should work. and do u know where i can get a replacement remote or which universal contol will work?

Door wouldn't open on one of those I found - the tiny drve belt at the front under the tray was limp but replacement didn't fix it. Next I tried a bigger motor pulley off an old PC drive - sometimes opened, sometimes didn't. You can remove the bezel off the front of the tray to expose the manual release, you can use a toothpick to press that - sometimes the tray eases after a while and starts working - sometimes you have to give it a shove.

Lite On LVW 5005 tray will not open

Drives stick from time to time. Get a Paper Clip and straiten one end out. Look for the small hole on the front panel. Stick the clip end into the hole and push. The tray should open. Grab the tray and move it rapidly in and out seven or more times. This may stop the tray from sticking, and if not you know how to open it manually.

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

The tray won't open. There is a disk in the tray and I was able to play it back. But, when I tried to eject the disk, the tray woudn't open.

something like this is a physical problem. you should contact the manufacturer to see if there is a manual eject button and if not you will have to take it apart to get the disk.

LVW - 5005

Remove the cover of LVW and access the DVD assy,unscrew the 4 screws holding the DVD assy to the LVW bottom,remove the top and bottom shield (also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws).You will access the DVD spindle.Remove the disk if you still have a disk stuck inside.Visually check the spindle sticky rubber ring,most likely some sticky material migrated on top of the rubber ring and your DVD was stuck on it. Clean the best you can with a cleaner and a non lint cloth.I used a cleaner/degreaser for electronics.DO NOT POWER your LVW BEFORE reinstalling the black plastic cover.There is a laser inside !!! You may now try and if the drawer opens and closes, reassemble everything opposite way you disassembled.

imediatly afterward that push the "eject" button and lightly tap the top of the player just above the door

when it opens, unplug the unit (the drawer must remain out!

gently romove the face by pulling the middle away from the drawer and lifting up (BE CAREFUL, IF YOU BREAK IT, THROW IT AWAY, THE LASER IS DANGEROUS TO YOU IF EXPOSED!!! SO AGAIN BE CAREFULL!!!
