Question about LG (GSA-4120BK) DVD±RW Burner

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.

I kept a disk in a dvd writer and after sometime it has broken in the writer i have removed the disk tray and removed the broken disk pieces now the tray is not going inside

You need to open the cover of you DVD driver to check if there is some particle left inside the DVD. As there is a possibility that there is something left inside the DVD. If you have idea you can open it and remove everything left inside the DVD.

I have an I/O Magic CDRW52x24x52 standalone USB 2.0 drive and a CD exploded inside I need to take it apart to get pieces out. how can I open it? model #Me-320-xx Serial # 220584

There's not much sense in worring about it. When a CD explodes in a drive it ruins the optics lense and often other parts. The cost of replacing the drive is less than the cost of the repair.

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?)

Wont play dvd or cd

Does this happen to all cds? If yes, your DVD/CDrom might need cleaning. Try cleaning it using a cd cleaner and let it spin for 30 seconds. If it still does not read cds, you can open the casing and clean the lens with a soft earbud damped in an alcohol and gently wipe on the lens. Put everything back and try playing cds again. Also, make sure that your cds are clean so that the lens wont be having hard time reading them.

Hope this helps. Goodluck!
