You broke it. Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

SOURCE: my cd/dvd opens then closes

> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".

Tip

Force Eject


If a disc gets stuck in the recorder, there a few steps to try before the problem becomes service-related:

1. Power the unit off (so it shows the clock), then simply press the Open/Close button. The unit should power on and attempt to eject the disc.
2. If the above doesn't work - power it off again, then press and hold the STOP and CH UP button on the recorder itself together and hold them down until the unit powers up. This is called a force eject. If this doesn't work (usually if it's not going to work the recorder will simply come on momentarily then loop back into "bye" and go back to the clock), there is one last method to try.
3. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Press and hold the same buttons as above as you plug it in. After it performs the self-check "ooooo" across the screen it should do the force eject. If not, the unit requires service to be repaired and possibly the drive replaced.

Sharp CD-BA2100 cd drawer won't turn or close.


Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.

If you look closely at the drawer where you put the disc in, there is a tiny hole. Use something which will fit, pin, paperclip etc and push firmly into the hole. This should force the drawer to open.

Hope this works for you

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Lg rc797t dvd drawer will not close consistently


I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.

I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.

So,
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.

My Samsung N501 dvd tray will not open


All I can suggest is unplug the unit. Undo the screws holding the case top on I think there is two each side and most likely 1-3 on the back. Lift the lid off. If you look where the disc sits under a plastic cross member you will find that two to four screws hold that cross beam down. Undo those and lift it up. Remove the disc.

While on bits I would suggest using a cotton bud/ q tip dipped in some mentholated spirits, rubbing alcohol/isopropanol or even vodka to gently clean the laser optic by placing the top on and gently twisting side To side

Do not force the drawer out. If the laser is in the upright and level position then by turning the large cog you should be able to wind the deck down and release the drawer.

You can put it back together by just reverse of how you opened it.

It's easy to do to release a disc so don't worry about it but please ensure its un plugged

CANNOT OPEN PLAYER


To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

Drawer closes by itself


The loading mechanism is off by a tooth or 2. The tray out position switch is not being triggered properly and the tray will reenter the machine. Did this just start happening? It is possible that the sensor switches are defective too. Worse case scenerio is about $5 in parts plus the local labor rate for repair.
