Hi. there is a switch on the load bay that is connected to the motor/gear assembly. this switch has failed. it is no longer able to initiate the play/scan sequence. this switch sends a signal to the mother board that initiates the scan/tracking of the disc that has been inserted. due to the failed swicth, the board is under the impression that the dock is still in the loading process. this is confusing the motor as well, allowing the relay to flip continuously. you will have to send this player to Lg(zenith) for this in house repair. the dock and lens assembly are integrated so, the whole dock assembly will have to be replaced.

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

LG HDD DVD recorder RH7521W is not able to read the disc. It gives unknown disc error for all the discs. I tried disc cleaning cd also.


Mine had a similar problem. I assumed there might be some dust on the laser. I used an air compressor and pointed it at the DVD slot as it was opening and closing to blow some air around inside the unit (and hopefully dislodge any dust). It worked. The discs that would not play before did play after. I didn't have the air compressor nozzle too close to the opening as I didn't want to dislodge anything I wasn't supposed to. If it was dust on the laser, you might be able to clean it in other ways, such as removing the cover and using a cotton tip (take power off first!). That would have been my approach if I didn't have an air compressor.

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.

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.
