Lg rc797t dvd drawer will not close consistently

When we try to load a dvd on this model LG device, the dvd drawer will close for a moment, but then reopen without loading the dvd movie. We take the movie out to check if it is a problem with the disc, but the dvd drawer closes for a moment then reopens even without a disc. On the TV screen, there is no disc symbol when this happens (the disc symbol will appear when the device is reading a disc or looking for a disc. ) It takes several tries before the disc drawer will stay shut and a disc is read to start a movie.

Any thoughts?

    When you close it, it re-opens within about 15 seconds

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.

I have an LG RC797T. I cannot play a vcr tape because it gets stuck in the machine. Can I connect another vcr player to the LG and record to a DVD?


Yes, you can connect another VCR to the LG's video & audio input jacks and record from the external VCR. You may have to select the line input from the menu to activate these inputs.

I have Dish Network and I can't find a Code for my LG RC797T so I can get it to play


I'm assuming you are referring to using the dish network remote to control your DVD/VCR unit. Use the instructions in your Dish Network manual, mine is on page 61, "Setting up using device code tables". Refer to the table of device codes in the back of the dish manual, pg 119, to look up your manufacturer. I used the DVD codes for LG as LG wasn't listed on DVD/VCR combo codes. Try each one until one works. I have the LG RC797T and the third code worked 824. Good luck!

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt
