Lite-On LVC-9016G DVD drawer does not open

The door and DVD tray of our LVC-9016G does not open. When you press the eject button you can hear the mechanism operate but the tray does not pop open. Until recently it had worked without a problem. There is not a DVD in the unit.

    dvd tray will not open despite many attempts

    Not only does the DVD tray not open, but the unit does not respond to any commands. Turning it on and off and unplugging it and repluging did not work.

Tapping the top as you hit "OPEN" works as outlined by BEST SOLUTION above, but not really hard. This applies to the Lite-On LVW5005X I had the same problem with. This is the worst DVD recorder and has very poor sound quality output, and plays in my other Lite-On of higher quality w/low sound volume. Timer is also very limited in number  (5) & day-settings. Tried but failed to record on 16x DVD, too. CD-R recording very, very limited so i don't bother using that function..

The rather in-elegant solution I use is to lift the unit half inch or so, and drop it. the door then opens and you can insert the disc. if a disc is in the unit, it opens just fine.

I have 2 LiteOn products and they both do this now, and they also say INVALID DISC, and the discs get stuck. I have to tip the machine forward and down and tap it from behind, as I hit the OPEN button, and it will come out. BE FAST and grab the drawer when the disc tries to exit!

    I tried every suggestion I could find online to no avail. I opened the case, took the top off the drive, and manually removed my finalized disc that has been stuck inside. The little gasket thing was sticky, someone else mentioned, and as a result, the disc was almost glued down. I dabbed baby powder on the little gasket to cancel the stickiness. I reassembled it and still couldn't get the tray to open, but at least I had my movie. I had tried banging on the top above the tray when pressing eject as someone else mentioned, but that did not work. So I tried this suggestion of leaning the machine forward and down. At first, it didn't work. But then I did it again while tapping on the back of the machine while it was tipped forward, and then out it came! You weren't kidding about having to grab it fast, because it did try to go right back in again. I was worried at first because the tray kept going in and out by itself then and wouldn't stop. I turned it off and back on again, ejected it and inserted a blank disc. It formatted it and did fine. I ejected it and put it back in again several times, and it seems to work fine now without tipping it forward. Thanks so much for the tip! I was about to give up and try to take it somewhere for repair. It's been a fairly faithful unit for many years, so I'm glad it's working again! Mine was manufactured in 2004. This was the Lite-On LVW-5005X that was altered with firmware to be an ILO with region free and multi-length recording. Thanks!

    I have two different Lite On Dvd players. They both worked really well, until they didn't. LOVE or HATE relationships. Really short life on that brand. I would NOT recommend it. Hope they get their hardware to last as long as the technology!

My tray was also sticking but I managed to solve the problem. I can also tell you why slapping the unit worked.
The reason that it sticks (at least in my case) is that the magnet which holds the reading head upwards becomes stronger with use. Thus the reading head will not go down to its place and the tray can't slide out. When you slap the unit the magnet lets the reading head fall down and the tray opens.
I solved my problem by taking the dvd recorder apart (taking note of how I dismantled it so as to reassemble afterwards). When disassembled I put some tape (electrical tape as it is a bit thicker) over the magnet. This weakened the strength of the magnet and allowed the tray to open normally. It makes some noise when reading the dvd, but the tray always opens and I can read and burn dvd's once again with no harm done.
Adrian.

I got a refurbed unit. I had a problem with the video tape section. It would not take in a tape, so I held it in, and it got stuck.

Since the tape section was stuck, the DVD side would not operate.

I took it apart. Turns out that the roof bridge over the VCR section was loose, and when I re-attached it, the tape was stablilized enough to eject properly.

I have a new problem - how do I get it to record in progressive mode instead of interlaced mode? (tried to copy a tape to DVD to be stored on my PC. I saw heavy interlacing, so I could not keep that.)

Well, the problem with is the rubber thread which would be connected to the motor inside the DVD player would have moved from its place... You have to get in touch with the service centre and place the rubber to its actual place.....

The DVD door does not open and there is no DVD in the holder.


To get the tray out for inspection try straightening a paperclip. On the face of most disk players there is a small hole. Push the paper clip into the hole, and the disk tray should release. Pull the tray out to it's full extension. Power being on or off is immaterial. Hope this help.
