Sounds like there might be debris that is keeping the door from closing all the way properly so when that happens it can make the door open up from time to time.

IF you don't have debris, could also be that the mainboard inside of the drive is going bad and causing the door to open and close on its own.

Change out the drive with a new one cause not only will that take care of the door problem but you'll have a new laser in the new drive and will last much longer.

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?

Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

I can not close my my Chamberlain garage door. It tries to close, and reach the end, then somehow after a second pause it opens. sometimes, wait for 5 minutes, it closes normally. This happens only when...

It sounds like the door is closing just a little too far. It hits the garage floor and the safety reverses it to the open position. This can be intermittent. On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit' adjustment. Turn this just a tad in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Some tweaking may be necessary to get it just right.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole

Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

Hi, I have a 2003 gmc sierra hd, duramax engine, 2 doors, long box. There is power locks on it and the door driver's door doesn't lock either with the driver switch or the passenger door switch, I change...

I have a similar problem. The remote sometimes opens all doors, and other times it will only open the 2 rear doors. Once inside the vehicle, the driver side window controls intermittently operates all windows and doors. It has no effect on the 2 rear doors, as the window controls still work. This behavior happens intermittently while driving the vehicle.
