Try going to safemode, if the problem didnt show, that means a program running on the background is causing it. if that is the case, you might need to configure your startup items in msconfig.

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....


It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

CW088D CD-RW Tray ejects with CD in it but not empty


If the tray retracts but doesn't close 100% then it will open back-up. If it is closing fully then returning open then it is a bad drawer switch. It's hard to get to but if you do get in there, a little WD40 lube might help it actuate. Good luck!

When i want to burn a cd my burner opens and closes by itself and


It can happen sometimes. You can try holding the tray while it is open, insert a blank CD-R and close it. Now you can use it for burning.

CD tray wont close but remain open.


There may be still some peices of cd's which block the cd tray to close. So try your best to clean those by unscrewing it from ur desktop. then try it. You can also try removing the screws of cd drive and clean it inside.
