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.dvd tray will not stay closed. opens and shuts ran - 9acead3.jpg

I'm not familiar with your exact model, but usually when this happens, the loading belt is at fault. There are microswitches inside which determine the limits of the tray movement. There is one that is activated to indicate that the tray is out and another to indicate that the tray is in. If the belt slips, the inner may not be activated and the system will cause the tray to come out. Try replacing the belt.

Keep us posted.

Hi, the dvd on my recorder stayes ejected? It will close but then will eject straight away? What can I do? Cheers.


Hello,

The fault is not from the disc, it is from the player.

The disc tray is actually malfunctioning. Which is as a result of a fault on the mechanism that is controlling the opening and closing of the disc tray.

Another fault might be that the button that controls the disc tray might be stuck.

test if it is the button.
  1. Unplug the player from the power source,
  2. plug it back,
  3. turn it on,
if it opens without you pressing the open button, then the fault is from the button.

check it for any irregularity.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the cover of the player,
  3. carefully force the front control panel open from the sides,
  4. then check for any damages,
  5. change the open button and it will be okay again.
test if it is the disc tray
press the open button, if it opens closes continuously.
then there is a problem with the mechanism that controls the open and close of the disc tray.

to fix this,

  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. open the back cover of the player,
  3. look to the left side of the player and you will see a mechanism that controls the tray,
  4. change the mechanism with a new one.
after doing that, the player will be in good condition again.

take care

How to fit new dvd drive in LG RH7796W DVD 250gig recorder? I've had a serviceman tell me that the 250g HDD needs replaced. I do not want to pay $300 I would sooner have a go myself. Thanks


Open up your LG Recorder. You should see the HDD on the left, the DVD drive in the middle and a circuit board on the right..

Now, look at the back of the dvd drive.. you should see a power connector and a standard IDE interface..

Remove both of those connections carefully. Remove the screws in the black bevels on the sides of the drive and slowly pry out the drive by lifting the IDE interface side above the main board and pulling it out while slipping out the black clips on top of the tray side..

Now that it is done, take your new dvd drive.. you may want to remove the faceplate or at least the plate from the tray ..(slide it upwards.. it should slip out ) .. Place it where the old dvd drive used to be.. do the connections and your good to go..

Before closing, Check to see if the drive is functioning. Close up.

I have swapped drives on my LG many times and even upgraded the HDD.. I have used mainly LG and sony drives..

Mine was originally shipped with 80GB some 3 years ago.. I had put in a 160 GB and now will be putting in a 250 GB as the other is already full and i like to keep those old recordings..

LG RH1757 (80 GB) DVD Recorder / HDD Recorder Drawer keeps opening Drawer keeps opening and closing and won't read discs! Rassie from Cape Town South Africa


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

DVD TRAY KEEPS ON OPENING AND CLOSING CONTINOUSLY


Hi, I have exactly the same thing. Happened before but went away when I got bored trying to fix it. This time I phoned LG support and they said take it back to Comet (they have bought out their servicing). End of conversation. Polite but firm.
Appalling support via their websites, appalling products. Never again.

Tray confused


I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside.
I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back.
let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old
