Have you checked to see if it is off track? Sometimes when these machines get bumpbed, dropped, or fall they can jump track. You have to take the cover off and inspect to see if it is off track when it closes and opens. It should go all the way back on the track when it closes. Be careful not to shock yourself. If it is on when you do it and your hand touches the metal parts inside you can get seriously burned or shocked.

SOURCE: dvd tray will not stay closed. opens and shuts randomly

i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.9acead3.jpg

Works with most Sony Players

Step 1
Unplug the power cord of the Sony Blu-ray player. Plug the power cord back in. Turn on the Sony Blu-ray player. Turn on the TV to which the Sony Blu-ray player is attached. Wait for the "No Disc" text to appear on the front of the Sony's LCD display and on the TV's screen.

Step 2
Press the "Eject" button on the remote control. Wait for the disc tray to eject itself from the front of the Sony Blu-ray player.

Step 3
Press the "Disc Info" button on the remote control. Look for a number to appear on one of the upper corners of the screen of the TV.

Step 4
Press the "Disc Info" button repeatedly until the number "9" appears on the TV's screen. This number indicates that the Sony Blu-ray player is now set for "multi-region" and will play any Blu-ray disc that is commercially made.

Step 5
Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player back on using the remote control. Press the "Eject" button on the remote control to close the disc tray. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control.

The tray on DVD won't open when pressing OPEN button DVD/CD is inside


Often the tray is powered by a rubber belt. If the latter breaks or slips the try will not open/close. The motor will work and tell the electronics that all is well because it has done its job but it really hasn't since the tray is inert!

How do I get the tray to stay closed on my iLO DVDR04


This is normally caused by a small loading belt that has stretched and the tray can not complete the cycle to close the door properly thus causing it to open.

Tray won't close fully then pops open again what needs to be done.


Hello
Its loading mechanism has the fault. It must be replaced. Check its loading belt, before replacing the loader mechanism.
Picture of the loader mechanism is given here.

I have a dvd from England and my old Sony DVP-C670D keeps giving me a prohibited message4 every time i try to play it. How do i unblock the region code.


Hi there,

Although no guarantee, this 'region hack' is rumoured to work:

1. Place the DVD player into 'standby' mode.

2. Using the Sony remote, press the following button sequence: Title; Clear; Power (green button); 0 (zero button)

3. Using the remote, Open the disc tray, then close again.

Now insert your disc and attempt to play - allow up to 2mins to load/play. If no response, open/close tray and try playing disc again.


Cheers,

Sony dav-dz555k home theatre system-dvd tray keeps opening and closing, wont read disc at all. have to manually push tray closed and change setting from dvd to something else to stop it.


You seem to be having a door sensor problem. When the CD tray closes a small switch under the loading tray shorts telling the microprocessor the door is closed and to stop the motor (either way when it opens or when it closes). A malfunction in this switch causes this symptom.

Xbox dvd drive


I have had both these problems before.

For the drive tray door that will NOT open do this.
  1. Turn off, disconnect from the TV and unplug your XBOX (otherwise your risk the remote chance of causing a short).
  2. Get a paper clip and insert it into the tiny hole just to the left of the power button to manually open the tray door.
  3. While the tray is open take a Q-tip (aka cotton swab) and clean the edges of the tray guides and carefully spray a little compressed air into the bay (***do NOT shake can before or during use and hold the can vertically so only air and no refrigerant comes out***).
  4. If this does not fix your problem you while have to have your XBOX serviced unless your are comfortable taking your XBOX and DVD drive.
For the DVD tray that will not stay closed.
  1. See step 3 and 4 above.
For disassembling your XBOX and DVD drive there are numerous guides online. (www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/cleaning_your_dvd_drive.htm)

Tray will not stay closed


This fault usually happens if the disc being read is not compatible with the player's firmware.
If discs are burnt from a computer, or copies, this can happen.
Does it do this with all DVD's?
Are you using commercial retail DVD's?
Otherwise something else is telling the player 'No Disk'.
Try a disc-based lens cleaner as laser may be grubby.
Or the laser diode could be defective.
