My lg dvd tray wont open

The mechanism that picks op and spins the discs seems to be malfuntioning. (The spindle). I opened the casing and realised this because if I press the eject button and simultaneously press down on the spindle-thingy, the tray opens but if I dont press down, it doesnt open. Also, if I leave a disc in, it always opens but I want the problem fixed so that I dont always have to leave a disc inside in order to be able to open it again... Should I replace this part and will that be very expensive to do?

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

My PORTABLE. DVD MAKES NOISES PHILLIP


There are 2 possible causes. Either the bearings for the spindle motor, or the tracking mechanism for the laser. It depends on when you're hearing the noise. If the noise is heard continuously then the spindle motor bearings may simply be dirty. If this device has hinged lid to allow the loading of your discs; then open it and remove any loaded disc. In the middle is where the spindle motor is mounted, and the locking mechanism that holds them into place. One small drop of lightweight household oil such as what you'd use to lubricate an electric shaving device would be all it takes right into the spindle top where you press with your finger to unlock your loaded discs. Put in a drop and spin it with your finger.
Next, look into open space of the chassis where the laser is mounted. Use a cotton swab or small brush to remove any dust or grime from way screw and guide shafts. Look at the plastic gears for broken teeth. There will be ribbon style electric cable connector; make sure that a loop of it isn't sticking up into the area of the disc tray...if it is, carefully reposition it.

My disc tray won't open the lights turn on and work but the disc tray just won't open. How can I fix this?


hi,
You have to check two things.
1. You have to check the tray loading belt in the mechanism. To see the same you should remove the mechanism.because the loading belt is beneath the cd tray. As it is cyberhome it will be very difficult to remove the mechanism for an user. if your capable for doing the same then make try. Because you have to remove the top cover then the back panel, then the mechanism. Take care the mother board is attached to the mechanism.

2. You have to check the cyberhome dvd player will show this type of complaint if the Spindle motor is faulty (oppen or short ). Spindle motor is one on which the cd rotates. It will not cost a lot.
ok

Sony dav dz100. Disc does not spin.


Hi,
Please put few drops of WD-40 on spindle motor shaft that sound not spin smoothly.
Spindle motor is located in middle of dvd mechanism that holds and spins disc.
If that does not solve your problem, replace optical block.
Let me know if you need optical block part number.
Thanks.

LG DVD REcorder disc tray will not open


Most likely the tension band that is attached to the mechanical parts of motor and the tray detached. you'll need to disconnect the power and unscrew the cover open and put the band back in place.

Sounds like you have a mechanical problem, which can range from a bad/broken belt, roller or motor. Inspect & repair the drive train.

If you are not capable of doing that seek professional service.

Good luck. :)

Can't get a disk to play


I've seen failure of the spindle motor to cause problems like this. Problem can also be a leaky diode in the power supply.

Permenant "Unknown Disk"


Try cleaning the player with a DVD lens cleaner.

If you're adventurous enough, and the player is out of warranty, you might want to open up the player exposing the lens part. Then, try to eject and close the disk tray and see if the laser diode lits up (avoid staring at the laser light, it will ruin your eyesight! View it from the side not directly into your eye.)

Also check if the spindle spins a little. Or, with the top cover open (this magnetized cover serves to hold the disc firmly as it spins), insert a disc into the tray and close it. See if the spindle spins with the disc.

This problem points most of the time with either a bad laser or misalignment. If misalignment is the case, this could be fixed by carefully turning (very slowly...) a tiny potentiometer located near the laser diode (experiment with the best setting, mark each turn and try any disc with each turn. Be patient)

This fix is not for the faint of heart, and at your own risk. If you're not sure of what you will be doing, leave the servicing to a qualified technician.
