LG DVD+RW door won´t close

I recently had a very strange incident with my dvd burner. A cd exploded inside. I managed to clean everything up and remove all the broken cd parts, everything seemed to be in place. Only problem is that as soon as i start the pc the dvd tray comes out and it just will not stay inside, i have no clue whatsoever as to what it is. Please i need suggestions.

DVD wont recognise disc

If your DVD drive don't show up in device manager and if there's no yellow exclamation mark in device manager, try to check IDE or SATA cable connection from your DVD drive to the motherboard. Also check the cable itself (are the wires inside broken?)

My rw read but not write

Try other burning software if it does not burn, chances are it is reduced to a cd/dvd rom. your burner is out.

Problem burnind and reading!

Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your LG DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your LG CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?

Playing dvd's

Inside the Control Panels, look for System. Double-click System and choose Device Manager. Inside Device Manager, find the CD/DVD and "Uninstall" the device. Restart the computer and let it re-load the driver. This might help. You can also try a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner.
