Question about LG GSA 4163B DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Drive wont open/eject

When I push the eject button, the green indicator light flashes 6 times slowly, followed by about ten rapid flashes, then another 5-6 times slowly, but the tray wont open. I assume this is some sort of error code. I have manually ejected the tray to ensure nothing stuck, but still no dice. Any ideas?

Re: Drive wont open/eject

Try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. it may be a firmware or driver error.

My cd rom tray will not eject and the light is

have you manually tried to eject the disc tray? There's a little hole on there somewhere, stick an unbent paperclip or safety pin in it and push until the tray starts to come out, then pull the tray out with your fingers.

Once you've done that, push the button to allow the tray to automatically retract.

My pioneer dvdrw dvr 107d door wont open when i press button /have cd stuck inside (worked 5 mins ago) can still view dvd content/ will driver update fix ? please help

The drive may have come loose in your pc and is stopping the door to open.Hold open the front flap and press the eject button. If it wont eject your disk straighten out a paperclip and holding the front flap open look at the front of your drive and you will see a small hole.Push the paperclip through the hole and it will release the catch and eject your disk, You may have to push hard .Hope this helps you.

The DVD tray doesnt eject

either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

When I press the bottin on the dvd burner to open the door, the green light comes on and i would hear the door try to open but no open.

yes frn this is happen due to the jam in the DVD rom. when you press the eject button put one pin in the hole that is just below the eject button. so that you can eject your DVD. or just hit the cd ROM slowly.

Solid green light

Turn off the computer. There is a small hole underneath the drawer and above the eject button. Push hard into this hole with a long pin, or the blunt end of a long needle, and the drawer should pop open.

DVD Drive opens automatically when I start up the pc and won't recognize disc

Mary, there is no quick easy solution which will not invlolve your getting your hands "dirty" a bit. Try uninstalling the drive in your computers device manager first of all to see if after you do this and reboot your computer it is still opening, if it is it is an issue with the drive iteself NOT with windows. If the drive has malfunctioned in this manner replacing it is your best alternative but you can TRY this...

In the front of your drive should ( should ) be a little hole near the eject button under the cd tray, it is just right for putting a paper clip which has been straightened oout into it. Try pushing a paper clip into it untill you feel it hit something. What you feel there is an emergency eject button, with pressure on this button try to "cycle" the drive by hitting the eject button and holding in pressure on the paper clip. Hopefully you will reset drives tray to reverse its order. Good Luck
