Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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.
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.
