DVD DOOR WILL NOT OPEN

I have reviewed all the answers posted here and none have helped. The door was opening and closing fine. I inserted a DVD (a product DVD) and door became stuck. Changed batteries in remote--did not work. Used the button directly on the unit, but it still would not open. Unit purchased Dec. 2007 and rarely used. HELP

Hi.  The DVD drive uses plastic gears and mechanisms and from time to time, these gears or mechanisms can get stuck.  You will need to open the unit and get to the DVD drive.  I am sure you will be able to take the DVD movie out.  You need to inspect the mecanism to make sure everything is moving smoothly.  Also, there is a belt that a motor used to open and close the DVD tray, so make sure there is a black rubber band looking belt attached and not broken.

There are two usual ways. Unplug the unit before proceeding.
1. There should be a small round hole along the bottom below the tray. You can push an unbent paper clip in it, and it should disengage the clamper and the drawer a little bit, which you can the slowly pull the drawer out the rest of the way.

2. Similar, you pull the flap down, and you will see a gear. You can manually turn that gear, which will do the same as the pin above.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

Dvd slider door won't close.


Hi, is it fully open, or just partially open?
Is it nearly shut but just jammed? If so have you tried inserting a flat peice of plastic and pulling the draw open. You could do this with no power to the dvd player, It might be that you haven't inserted the disc properly and it is wedged in.

Try all this and see how you get on.

DVD slot does not open. Can't insert into it.


Sounds like the dvd door is stuck. Try using a paperclip in the small hole by the dvd door to open manually. Once opened then try to use the button to close. Hope this helps.

Bk. button


my relatively new, sat idle for two years, LG RHT398H DVD RECORDER has a strange fault the dvd keeps opening and closing at random if a disc is inserted and it wont obey open close commands, or read discs it, the dvd is totally rouge. The rest of the unit is fine. i think it will need re-install of firmware or maybe cleaning any ideas?

Stuck dvd in the machine on top of one in there already - cannot eject - help


If you are comfortable taking the cover off, you can try removing the cover and remove the dvd's yourself.

IF you are not comfortable removing the cover then, you can try to take a credit card (Actually, if you have any of those JUNK credit cards that the CC companies send out as trial offers, those work the best, and who cares if you bend those, they get tossed anyway) and bend an edge at a 90 degree.. (about 1/8" of the edge) so it makes like a small ledge. try to fit it inbetween the top of the door, and then see if you can open it up. Some players have a seperate door, and some trays are attached to the door. You might be able to help it out or unjam the tray this way.
And in the Future, with any other CD/DVD Players, use your remote control or the open and close button to open and close the tray, and NEVER Push on the tray itself. If I had a dollar for every dvd player tray that Ive fixed because of this, I would be buying bill gates dinner. (not really, but you get my point)
Good luck.
Mac =)

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
